Happy Basic Manners Students
Amy and Sophie
We have taken Basic Manners, Level 2 Manners, and Intro to Nosework classes with Wise Canine. Our dog Sophie is a 2 year old rescue who had no obedience training and was reactive in some new situations. Since attending Michelle’s classes, Sophie is generally calmer and more confident. Most importantly, Michelle has taught us how to use positive reinforcement to teach our dog the behaviour we want to see. Her reactivity started while walking her on leash, but we learned how to use positive reinforcement in other situations, too. Lastly, all classes were so fun for us all. I looked forward to weekly training classes and Sophie was always excited when we arrived at the training space. Michelle is organized, attentive to each dog’s needs, and fun! A class didn’t go by where we didn’t laugh. We love Michelle and her evidence-based training methods. We only wish there was a Level 3 Manners!
