Michelle has worked in the animal industry for more than 20 years after her family undertook guardianship of the Tea Tree Gully Boarding Kennels & Cattery in South Australia.

A number of years down the track and following a move to Queensland, Michelle’s experience was recognised formally with Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services and Dog Training being earned alongside employment at the award-winning Samford Pet Resort.

Following receipt of her industry qualifications, Michelle continued on to earn Certificate III in Small Business Management and eventually started her own business, Ultimutts Dog Training. Michelle successfully ran Puppy School and Dog Training at multiple venues on Brisbane’s Northside, as well as helping clients that had dogs with all kinds of behaviour issues before jumping at the chance to join the team at the industry-lauded Jordan Dog Training.

Michelle’s favourite part about animal training (and people training!) is seeing both the pet and handler progress session-by-session until they ultimately learn to work as a team. Excitement and pride at Michelle’s end are hard to hide when class members are able to nail that exercise they have been practicing for weeks.

Undeniably, Michelle has always had a passion for dogs and the workings of their minds, with her first taste of dog training coming by joining her parents with their Bloodhounds in the Show ring. It was, however, not until Michelle adopted her 7-year-old Australian Shepherd, Neo, that she knew dog training was where her future lay.

Neo has now moved on and is running amok over the Rainbow Bridge, and Michelle shares her life with 4 (yes, four!) dogs who keep her on her toes and make her smile every day.
