Connecting You To Your Dog
Hello dog-lover! Your love for your dog - your special friend - has led you to this site.
Here at Devoted Dog I educate dog guardians and their dogs on how to connect and respond to one another by using simple training methods that dogs pick up and understand. Learn more about my approach below.
Two Paws Up!
"Michele has trained and cared for our Yorkie on an ongoing basis for over nine years. She has a natural ability to communicate with and train her canine clients! Our dog is always very receptive to her cheerfulness and enthusiasm. We always notice improvement in his behaviour following her sessions."
“Tulip has been doing phenomenal! She’s so much smarter than Kody and I realized! 😊. The tips you taught us have been great! Thank you again.
"Our three year old Miniature Pinscher, Paddington, had no training. I was surprised how quickly he learned basic training techniques from Michele in the first session! Michele was very patient and taught us the techniques to continue training Paddington. Paddington is now trained in all the basic commands, leash walking, drop the ball, come on command. Michele is very good at training dogs and we highly recommend her. Paddington loves trainer Michele!
About Your Trainer
My training is based on today’s standards of positive reinforcement training and scientific learning theory. I hold certification from the International Academy of Canine Trainers. Click below to learn more about my training background, certifications and personal experience.
Dogs personalities range from self-confident and willing to very independent and easily distracted. There’s no one way to train a dog because training has to fit your dog. That's why I always start with an evaluation. I will assess your dog and provide you with a written training and behaviour modification plan that's right for you and your pet.
