This type of consultation is recommended when unwanted behavior is occurring primarily in the home or neighborhood, as classes can not directly address these circumstances. Consultations are considered "coaching sessions", designed to help you understand the root causes of your dog's behavior.

"I just wanted to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done to help our family deal with our many dog issues. Your diagnoses and advice were always exactly on target, and I can’t tell you how appreciative I am...I really loved the fact that you were so down-to-earth and warm and loving with our dogs. Most important, you were incredible with the kids and working with the family as a whole to solve the problem. I will recommend you as the best to anyone who has dog issues, and I am sure we will be consulting you in the future, as sharing a household with three rescue dogs and two young children is not always the easiest endeavor."
|After two particularly vicious
fights between our two dogs (and the subsequent visits to
the emergency vet), I was at my wit's end. My wife and I
didn't know what to do and were worried we'd have to find a
new home for one of the dogs. We read books and researched
online but nothing we tried seemed to have any lasting
effect. We contacted Michele in the hope that we could
remedy their behavior problems. Through the entire process
she was incredibly professional and calm. She came to our
home and met with the girls on their own turf. She gathered
as much information as she could about their habits, daily
life, etc. and walked us through a number of pointers on
things we could change that might improve our situation.
Fast forward one year later and after rigidly enforcing all
of Michele's suggestions, our two girls haven't been in a
single fight! It's been over a year now and I can't thank
Michele enough for the peace of mind she's brought us! We
have two beautiful rescue dogs and a wonderful home now -
I'd recommend Michele's services to anyone!
|If I could give a review more than
five stars, I would do it in a heartbeat for Teamworks Dog
Training. I can't rave to enough people about our
Long story short, we have two female dogs that want to be alpha, and we've had some behavior problems that we're rather worried about. Michele, the in-home trainer, came highly recommended from a friend for "serious behavior problems," so we signed up for an in-home consultation. Michele is a registered trainer and a certified dog obedience instructor and dog behavior counselor (she has a plethora of accredidations to her name), so I felt like we were in pretty good hands.
We had to fill out a massive questionnaire before the consultation that Michele could look over. And before I go further, it's not cheap. But now that we've gone through it, I would have paid that easily, and more, to experience Michele's wealth of knowledge and the confidence that she gave us.
Michele listened attentively as we explained the variety of problems we've been having and the things we've been trying, letting her know various examples of what's worked and what hasn't. She made us feel really good about the way we treat our dogs and gave us confidence for things we're already doing to help them. And the best part - she's super honest, so when she told us she thought we could rectify the problems, I knew she wasn't just giving us an earful. She truly cares about dogs and their owners and making their lives as peaceful as possible.
In addition to in-home consults for serious problems, Michele and her co-trainers offer a huge variety of classes, ranging from dominance and aggression classes to leash manners to agility classes for well-trained dogs. Michele also offers boarding in her beautiful home where she does daily training with the dogs and videotapes it so the owners can view after picking up their babies. She also bathes the dogs before returning them to you - and it's all for $40 a night. I've never boarded a dog of my own before, but for the all-inclusive package, and the unbelievably capable and caring hands they go into, that's worth it to me.
If you have a dog with behavior problems - or just want to get some further training for your already well-behaved pooch - give Teamworks a look now!
