"We have had so much success with our English Mastiff, Michelle is the best trainer. I would recommend her group classes and one on one sessions to EVERYONE."  -- Crystal E. Raeford, NC

"We were having trouble getting my one year old lab to go in to her crate. After 1 session with Michelle, Ally went right in her crate! It was wonderful. I was able to observe what Michelle did so that after she left, I had a dog that would listen to me and go in her crate! I honestly could not have done it without the help of Michelle. She also helped with my dogs fear of the laminate flooring. Now we are doing well and are much happier. Thanks Michelle!" 
-- Stephanie R. Raeford, NC
 We had a in-home session for our 10 week old Vizsla Jake. Michelle worked with Jake and had him touching the bells on the door to go outside really fast. She also showed us how to train Jake on the basic things. We are looking forward to the class Control Unleashed. Thanks a lot for setting up Jake for success!!!"
