Meet the Team


Owner and Head Trainer

Michelle completed her training education with Tug Dogs in Northern California under the teachings of Erin Kramer. She now brings her expertise to the Pacific Northwest. Her training experience paired with a degree in Psychology gives Michelle the perfect foundation to help dogs and owners live in harmony.


Hospitality Coordinator

As Michelle's husband and an avid animal lover himself, Tyler often interacts with dogs during their stay.  He reinforces healthy habits and polite manners at potty breaks and meal times, and of course gives plenty of love and attention.


Resident Canine

Sage is more than just the face of the business - he helps welcome guests of training and boarding services.  He displays safe and polite behaviors, setting examples for other dogs to learn from. Sage is an essential part of the team, often referred to as our role model dog. He helps our more behaviorally challenged dogs develop positive social dog skills.
