Profile: I offer gentle, reward based, basic obedience training at your home. Providing this in the environment where your dog is the most comfortable has proven to be quite beneficial.

My goal is to teach YOU how to become your dog's favorite trainer! I'll help you read your dog's body language and see how important yours is to them as well. By broadening your understanding of communication, I hope to provide you with a wonderful, more balanced relationship with your pet. Most importantly, I'll teach you how to make it FUN!

In addition to basic obedience commands in and around the home, it's very important that your dog receives adequate exercise, so we'll also focus on getting your pet to walk politely on a leash.

I have a special place in my heart for shelter animals - especially bully breeds. If your shelter dog seems moderately aggressive or fearful, I'd love to help keep them in your home!

I'm available weekdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The cost is $50 per session in Amarillo, and they last about an hour. If you purchase more than one lesson at a time, you get a $5 discount per session. Multiple dog households are $70 per session (that is, if we're training more than one dog) and will get extra time, up to 1.5 hours.

Call my office at 806-416-0272 or send a message through my website and let's get started!

Profile: The objective of the retriever program at Green Timber Kennels is to produce a retriever that excels as both a family and a hunting companion. The cornerstone of my program revolves around our ability to provide you with not only an exuberant hunting retriever, but an obedient one as well- whether it is in the field or at home. One of the keys to my successful retrieving program revolves around owner involvement and handler education. I strive to work one on one with you and your dog in order to build good handling and communication skills. If you know what is expected of your dog you will gain their trust and respect, and the two of you can work better as a team.

Resident of Fort Worth graduated from the Animal Behavior College (ABC) emphasizing in shelter dog training.

I did my externship with the Human Society of North Texas in Fort Worth where I was hired as an adoption counselor. This position was filled with opportunities to find people the dog of their dreams.

I was also able to hone my training techniques on dozens of breeds while understanding the unique challenges for a shelter dog’s life. Recently I got involved in Service Dog Training through Train a Dog Save a Warrior (TADSAW). It is a non-profit 501(c)(3)(D4)* organization that helps put shelter dogs into their forever homes with the veterans that suffer from PTSD, TBI, and MST.

Dog Group Classes and Private Home Lessons are two ways I offer training to people.

I have partnered up with a self-serve dog wash & full service grooming: Happy K9 along with Spa Paws Hotel “The Lap of Luxury” to work Group Classes into their well rounded love for dogs. Private Lessons are in the comfort of your home but also where the dog feels the most in control.

Lessons range from one time visit to 4-7 week packages where I coach the owners to train their dog in everything from Obedience Training and Problem Solving to Leadership Training if necessary.

My training techniques teach dogs that obedience and other desirable behaviors are things they like using rewards such as treats, toys, petting and praise.

This type of training creates a dog whose primary motivation is based on earning reward as opposed to avoiding a punishment. My goal is to teach the client to look at their dog as an individual and use the things he or she likes as a way of rewarding them whenever they do something the client likes. This will motivate both the client and their dog without causing unnecessary confusion or stress.

My Name is Michelle and I love what I do!

Loving Home Pet Services

Life is so wonderful when you have a job that you really love. You can hardly even call it "work". I feel that working with dogs in any capacity is very exciting, but dog training is especially rewarding. I know that teaching obedience not only strengthens the bond between owner and dog, but may save the life of many others by keeping them out of shelters due to behavior issues. This is my true goal.

My 12 yr. old Labrador retreiver, "Summer Rain" and I are the proud owners of Loving Home Pet Services located in Katy/West Houston. We offer dog training, pet sitting, dog massage and pet taxi services. "Summer" is the brains behind the business, because I do all the work! Check us out on our website. Happy tails to you!

Profile: It goes without saying, I have a pure love for animals. I grew up around and caring for animals and this has continued into my adult life. My husband and I lost three elder dogs at the end of last year and have once again built our four-pawed family to four. I have always wanted to work with animals and this really is a dream come true to now have the opportunity to do what I love. I did what was expected in the corporate world out of college but soon realized one has to do what they love and what they were meant to do.

It is my goal as a trainer to create a lifetime bond between pets and their owners and to be proactive in not just placing a band aid on animal issues but assisting with true solutions.
