I started taking Remy to Michelle at PAWSitively Happy Home when he was 5 months old, he is a shy
and fearful dog but Michelle & her staff made me feel comfortable in training him even though he
was nervous of strangers and other dogs.
The 1 st class I took was the puppy training course which was fantastic Remy started coming out of his
shell and loves all dogs now. Even though this was a group class Michelle still gave me personalised
advice regarding his training and helping him overcome more of his fears.
I then enrolled him in loose leash walking classes again this was a fantastic class and I learnt so much
and Remy has come on leaps and bounds with his walking, listening and his interactions with other
The 3 rd class I took with Remy was the Recall class, I loved this class as it taught me what I must do, to
develop Remy’s recall training and he went from ignoring me when other dogs are around to listening
and coming back to me more regularly. I appreciated Michelle’s honesty and explanations on the reason
why you should and shouldn’t do certain things, the information given is always given in a professional
With all the classes Michelle will show you different ways to do training that is more specific
to your dog. For example, during a recall training session Remy was overly distracted by sniffing and I
couldn’t get his attention until they suggested we use the distraction in a positive way and we got
Michelle will answer questions either through the Facebook group or email which is amazing as
sometimes you forget to ask things in class or something happens that you’re not 100% sure how to deal
with. So, it’s nice to know that the support is there if you need it.
I am looking forward to taking more classes in the fall and continually training Remy. I would not take
Remy to anyone else for training as I do believe Michelle is the best trainer I have ever gone to and she
offers a variety of fun classes for all the dogs.

Amazing pet trainer we learned so much for you and keep Daphne doing it on a regular basis thank you!

“PAWSitively Happy Home has brought us so much relief in correcting our dog’s bad behaviours! Michelle is extremely dedicated to her clients- both human and canine. Michelle has been available for any questions we have after our sessions with her and it seems like she is only a phone call/ text/ email away!
We researched a lot of different dog trainers before picking PAWSitively Happy Home. The reason we chose PHH was because Michelle was the ONLY trainer who answered us back with specific answers to our questions, and broke down our questions in paragraphs to ensure she answered them all! All the other trainers we contacted ( roughly 7 of them) gave us cookie- cutter responses, that seemed like they just copied and pasted from a pre set list.
We were very anxious of how having a individual trainer would be ( we had a bad experience at Petsmart training) but after the first session our anxiety was put to rest! We noticed changes in our dogs behaviour after our first session!! We could not believe it!!!
One thing to note is that Michelle can teach you the tools you need to have a happy dog- but it is up to you as a pet parent to keep up with the techniques that Michelle has taught. She is really not a dog trainer, she is more of a human trainer! She has educated us so much, that we are forever grateful! I would recommend PHH to anyone and everyone! If you want dedication, passion, and a personable experience- then PHH is certainly what you are looking for!!!” Pam, Crosby’s Mom
