It was a total fluke that Michelle found Canine Craze in 2014 when her dentist recommended their services shortly after she adopted a new puppy. She never expected she’d become so passionate about learning how to communicate with and teach dogs! A year later, Michelle has been teaching classes with us since 2016. She is an AKC evaluator and has achieved her Trick Dog Instructor certification through “Do More With Your Dog”. When she’s not training dogs, Michelle is an elementary art teacher. She loves both of her teaching jobs, and says positive reinforcement training has changed the path of her own life, as well as the quality of life for her two dogs, Joe and Nina! She also loves helping people learn that there are compassionate, humane, and enjoyable ways to train their dogs! Both of her dogs have achieved AKC Advanced Trick Dog titles. In additionally, her dog Nina is CGC titled, and is now learning how to title in the sport of Barn Hunting!
