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
immediate results.
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!

Kim & Daphne


“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

“Michelle came to help us with our puppy when she was a few months old and it was like night and day between before the training and after. She goes far beyond training the dog and works directly with people to reshape the way they interact with their dogs. I absolutely loved having her as a trainer and would recommend her to anyone looking to create a better bond with their pup!” Sarah, Koda’s Mom

“Michelle is fantastic. She really takes the time to listen and get to know you and your dog, offering advice and training best suited to you.” Sarah L

“Michelle is awesome. She came to my place to help train my dog, she did wonders. Very knowledgable and personable. You can she’s there for the animals, and the animals know it! Asia loves her!” Brandy, Asia’s Mom

“Michelle is always ready with helpful advice for any issues I have with my dogs. She never makes me feel silly for asking a question, and genuinely cares for her clients (both two legged and four) and wants to make a difference. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for help with doggy behaviour, or even just wanting to help their pet acquire new fancy skills.” Dawn

“Michelle is the best! She’s patient, kind and quite obviously loves our animals as much as we do. She has taken my Dane from puppy to gentleman and I couldn’t be more pleased with his progress.” Ninja’s Mom

“Michelle is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and really cares about helping the puppies and people get off to a good start.” Kristen

“Thanks again so much for your help with Zoey. We cannot believe the differences in such a short time frame. It has left us feeling a lot less anxious about the changes coming up in our family.” Ashley
