Whether it’s basic obedience training or complex behavioral issues, Michelle Panek can help you and your best friend, using positive training methods that are completely force-free.

A Message From Michelle:
“I believe that as pet owners, it’s important that we are caring stewards for the animals that share and enrich our lives. Maybe you’ve seen or read about certain questionable training methods on TV or in a famous dog training book, or even had them recommended to you by a trainer you’ve hired.
There is never a need to resort to physical punishment or to force your dog to obey. I know from personal experience that it’s possible to successfully treat issues such as aggression, separation anxiety, barking, jumping and general unruly behavior with the application of totally force-free methods.
If you prefer an “on the same team” relationship with your best friend, rather than an adversarial one, I can guide you toward that goal.
Through the use of positive reinforcement techniques and compassionate behavior management, your dog will learn more efficiently, be happier and gain confidence. As a result, your dog will choose to offer a behavior that you desire – because it’s fun to do so!
The wonderful bond between you will be strengthened in this way, and you’ll enjoy seeing your best friend blossom.”
