Michelle developed AdventureHoundz in 2015 as a passion project to combine her love of outdoor adventures with her knowledge of dogs. With the need for physical exercise and mental stimulation, but the structure of pack walks both on and off-leash, AdventureHoundz is the perfect fit for dogs of almost any age, breed, and size!
In addition to group hikes, AdventureHoundz offers a variety of private training and in-home boarding options.
Michelle is a CPDT-KA and CTDI, certified professional dog trainer, with continued education certifications in Canine behavior, First Aid/CPR, and years of hands-on training experience using fear/force-free, positive reinforcement methods.
Known coast to coast across North America, Michelle, and her dogs travel performing stunt and trick shows to promote positive training and responsible pet ownership. These skills and talents have had Michelle and her dogs appear in many news segments, television shows, films, and commercials as well as featured in a unique documentary by Top Dog Film Festival.
Not only has Michelle accomplished a great deal with her own dogs, competing in different sports such as k9 frisbee, dock diving, agility, obedience, IGP, and achieving many awards, titles, and certificates, but she has also been fortunate enough to train wolves for feature films and commercials.
Michelle is a dog owner and trainer looking to inspire and educate others to have the best relationship possible with their dogs. From puppies to adults and everything in between, Michelle is growing a community of passionate pet owners with confident, stable, and happy dogs!
