    “Michelle is a true professional! She understands dog behavior so well and has amazing tips to foster a healthy relationship between dogs and kids. As a pediatrician, momma to an 8-month-old, and dog mom myself; I have learned so much about dogs from her and @poochparenting. I highly recommend her for any of your dog training needs. I will be utilizing her services even more so now that we moved to a new home and our pup, Shiloh, is having a hard time adjusting.”
