Happy Puppy Students 

"My labradoodle, Clara, and I have thrived during both our preschool and kindergarten classes with Wise Canine. Thanks to the lessons, implementation and structure within the classes, I have an exceptionally well mannered, calm and situationally adapted dog.

Clara is comfortable in a variety of new situations and is calm when meeting other dogs and random people.

Thank you Michelle for your dedication, love and wisdom. Looking forward to our upcoming third set of lessons."

"My small breed puppy was so timid and afraid before this class. Now she has way more confidence. Given her size accommodations were also made to set her up for success which I really appreciated. Highly recomend!

"We  are extremely happy to have met Michelle! She is a passionate dog lover, but also a great force-free, science based and knowledgeable trainer. With our puppy Sherpa, we took private lessons to have a good start with him. We are already registered for more classes with Michelle after that! Every thing she teaches is through positive reinforcement  and our dog is always set up for success. Michelle is always there to answer our questions and gives us useful feedback after our sessions with her."
