Over her 40+ years of dog training, Michele has presented scores of seminars across North America and abroad. She has been responsible for bringing science based Clicker Training to guide dog training and promoting the expansion of Clicker Training internationally within the guide dog field.
In her “hobby world”, Michele has actively competed in both horse and dog sports since 1970. In competitive obedience, she has completed 3 OTCHs on Labradors and retired her first English Springer spaniel only 7 points shy of his OTCH. For clients, Michele has attained numerous obedience and agility titles on Great Danes and English Springer Spaniels. With clients’ dogs, she qualified a Great Dane for the National Gaines Obedience Championships and won the National High Scoring English Springer award.
Since 2006, Michele has been involved in the sport of canine musical freestyle with English Springer spaniel, “Cabo”, Australian Shepherd, “Listo” and Springer spaniel “Deja Vu”. She thoroughly enjoys this artistic sport that combines the precision of obedience with trick behaviors and challenges her creative side through music and choreography. In her 5 years in the sport, Michele has won 4 international competitions and attained 5 Championship Titles. In 2008 she received the first scores of double 10’s (perfect scores) for Technical and Artistic in one routine in WCFO’s Championship division. She repeated this accomplishment at the 2009 International competition where all 3 judges awarded double 10’s to her freestyle routine. To date Michele and “Listo” have earned ‘double 10’ scores a total of 10 times. Michele thoroughly enjoys the ongoing challenges in the sport of canine freestyle and the use of Clicker Training to achieve innovative and entertaining routines.
In 2007, Karen Pryor invited Michele to join her renowned faculty for Clicker Expo Conferences. At Clicker Expo, Michele presents on the application of clicker techniques for a variety of dog sports, general training, and for the training of guide dogs for the blind.
