Michelle, with Wise Canine Training was excellent!! We first accessed her services when we were thinking of bringing a new puppy into our home, with a bit of a reactive older dog already a part of our family. Michele was so kind and helpful, informative and available to assist as we prepared and was ready to assist as we went through the introduction process. Her support and encouragement really helped in making a smooth transition.


We have since followed up with two dog classes with her and the new pup (a Great Dane), puppy socialization and basic manners. Both have been EXCELLENT experiences, we have witnessed our pup flourish and get so excited every night he realized was a training night. His success was great, and with Michelle’s work and caring instruction style I witnessed our, and all the other dogs truly succeed. To see a 120lb 8month old pup be able to successfully engage with a 4-5 lb 8 month old pup with no mishaps is so exciting as just one small example!! Thanks Michelle and Wise Canine Training! We will be back!!
