Your Puppy The Fun Way

About the Trainer

After spending 20 years helping families with their dogs face to face as a professional dog trainer, Michele realized that so much of what she knows could be shared with families everywhere - in a way that actually works.

People sometimes think their dog is just SUPER difficult because the advice they’ve gotten was incomplete, confusing or just wrong. So she set out to help.

Michele loves training dogs because of the impact that it has on the families she gets to help. The peace and joy they get from being able to enjoy their dog LISTENING.

Besides teaching classes, helping private clients and running seminars, Michele is also a foodie and fantasizes about being a food critic or secret shopper for restaurants. Talk to her about food and your instant best friends.

"5 months old and making great progress!"

"Marigold Rose is making such great progress, thanks to these lessons and videos! Although, she does love to have a sassy corgi streak from time to time! I cannot thank you enough for your help and support. I made it through the biting phase alive and well. She is fully crate trained. Mostly potty trained with only a few accidents in her play pen that were not her fault.

Why Choose The 30 Days to Puppy Perfection Program

Created by Experts (who are also puppy owners!)

Our programs are created by a Fear-Free Certified professional dog trainer with 20+ years of puppy training experience. There's no puppy issue we can't help you with!

Easy to Follow

Fun, effective video lessons you can do in minutes a day. Our content is designed for puppy's short attention span and all pet owners, regardless of training experience.

Ideal Learning Environment

Avoid the distracting and overstimulating big box store or group puppy class. Train your puppy at home, where your dog can more easily learn new skills.

Exceptional Value

The benefits of a personalized training program at a fraction of the price of an in-person trainer or puppy class. Our courses have no expiration date!


We bet you have some questions. Here are some of our most popular questions and answers!


Can I get the course before I buy a puppy?

Absolutely! Reviewing the course before you get a puppy will help you understand common mistakes new puppy parents make and how to avoid them.

How fast does it work?

Students can start to see results on the very first day they start training. Students that put in time and effort consistently and follow along with the program’s step-by-step approach will see the quickest results.

Do I have access to the whole course at once?

Yes. Our program is tailored to teach skills in the optimal order and pace for puppies. We recommend following the courses as structured to ensure success. Skipping ahead may cause frustration if your puppy hasn't mastered the foundational skills needed for advanced lessons that come later in the program.

What training methods are used?

All training is done using a positive and gentle approach, you will learn how to let your dog know they did a great job. You won’t be left with pockets full of food either because I will teach you the best way to use them, and to stop using them, and still get your pup to follow commands the first time you ask even when you DON’T have a treat.

Do I need equipment?

In the beginning, you will need a regular 4’ or 6’ leash that feels comfortable in your hands, low, medium, and high-value training treats, and ideally, something to hold treats like a training pouch.

Is it guaranteed?

Students who follow this program and play the training games for homework consistently see results really quickly.

Due to the digital nature of our puppy training courses and products, we do not offer refunds once a purchase has been made. Why, you ask? Once our digital content has been accessed, it’s kind of like letting the puppy out of the gate – it can’t really be returned.

We believe in the value and quality of our content and are here to support you if you have questions. If you’re having second thoughts, facing technical issues, or not sure if our resources are the perfect fit for your pup, don’t hesitate to reach out before making your purchase. Our team is here to answer any questions and make sure you feel confident in your decision to join our program.

My dog doesn’t have major problems, is it useful?

Your dog doesn’t need to have “problems” in order for training to begin. As a matter of fact, owners that started their dog’s training before any problems arise experienced their dog having better listening skills when asking for commands such as sit, down and come. Dogs that start training sooner rather than later have a better handle on their manners too. This means they don’t jump on people to say hi, but instead approach people, sit, and wait to be petted.

Is it better to wait until I have my puppy to buy this course?

Many of our students purchase the course before their puppy’s arrival so they can better prepare mentally and within their home and family. You want to make sure you’re being proactive instead of reactive when your puppy arrives. You’ll want to learn all about proper puppy care, how puppies learn, and what you should and shouldn’t be doing with them when they first arrive home. Students that have purchased the course ahead of time have told us they felt better prepared for their puppy’s arrival and were more confident in the skills they had learned and could start using right away, even on the first day their puppy came home.

Is my dog too old/young for this to work?
Does this course work for older puppies?
Does this course work for older dogs too, or just puppies?

No dog is too young or too old to start this program. Most puppies start training the day they are brought home. The oldest dog to use our training programs so far was 12 years old.

It’s always better to face potential problems proactively rather than trying to fix them after they’ve started, but this course is still very effective for families with older dogs too!

Will it help with barking, chewing, and other unwanted behaviors?

This program will help your dog stop or avoid any excessive barking, chewing of your furniture, jumping on you or guests, digging holes in the backyard, pulling on the leash while out on a walk, and more.

Is there an expiration date or time limit for watching the videos?

We offer unlimited access, which means you will always have access to the online course content, including the videos and resources. You can watch and re-watch the videos as many times as you'd like for as long as you'd like!

How is the course delivered?

You get immediate access to the portal that contains all 10 main courses and 8 bonus courses. While you may be tempted to skip around, we highly recommend you go in the order the videos are listed in the courses for the best results.

How long will I have to practice with my dog every day?

When you practice with your dog, training sessions should be short and sweet, like 5-15 minutes throughout your time at home.  All of the training games you’ll learn inside this program can be played anytime throughout the day and during the current daily routines you have with your dog such as meal times, when going out the door for walks, and when sitting watching tv or eating dinner.

Training A Puppy Can Be FUN!

30 Days to Puppy Perfection is the most comprehensive library of puppy training courses on the market today, featuring 135 on-demand video lessons you can return to any time you want as new challenges arise.

Let us show you how fun and easy lessons like this
can help you get better results.

  • Ideal Learning Environment:  An at-home learning environment ensures comfortable, focused training without the risk of picking up bad habits from other puppies in busy group classes.
  • Entire Family Involvement:  Our program offers fun training games and activities for all family members, including kids.
  • Harness Puppy Brain Power:  Ongoing learning is much more effective and lasting than a 1-hour a week private lesson.

Let's take advantage of that!

You're experiencing or want to avoid puppy owner challenges like:

We show you exactly how to get started on the right paw from the first day you bring your puppy home. You’ll learn how to get and keep your puppy’s attention, when and how to start puppy training, and how much training your puppy needs each day.

Our expert trainers will teach you how to create the ideal schedule for your puppy that includes the right amount of exercise, training, and rest to help puppies be on their best behavior at all times.

30 Days to Puppy Perfection is for you if...

If you’re experiencing potty training challenges like a puppy that refuses to go potty outside, has repeated accidents in the house, or frequently signals the need to go out to potty but doesn’t actually go, we have solutions for you.

“My puppy is stubborn and won’t listen to me.”

“My puppy has too much energy or sleeps all the time.”

“Potty training doesn’t seem to be working.”

As heart-wrenching and frustrating as these challenges can be, we have a proven approach that has helped thousands of puppies learn to love their crates.

Learn the secret to getting your puppy to come when called - every time - even when there are distractions, and capture your puppy’s focus and attention.

Getting your puppy to use the leash and collar or harness effortlessly is easy when you know the right techniques like the ones we share in the Leash Skills course included in the 30 Days to Puppy Perfection puppy training library.

“My puppy hates the crate, cries every time we use it, and panics when left alone.”

“My puppy won’t come when called and runs away from me.”

“My puppy hates the leash/collar/harness, runs away when I bring it out, and refuses to walk with it on.”

If your puppy won’t sit, stay, lay down, or drop an item you don’t want them to have, you need this program. We’ll show you the right way to teach these behavioral cues while avoiding a common mistake that puppy owners make that may be preventing your puppy from succeeding.

You’re ready to relax for the day, but your puppy is full of energy and won’t settle. Now what? We cover this in the Go To Bed On Cue course in the Puppy Perfection program. You’ll learn how to manage your puppy’s energy so your furry friend is ready to relax, settle, and sleep when you are.

If your puppy is shy or afraid of people, other pets, loud noises, or anything else, you will benefit from the Socialization and Exposure Training course in the Puppy Perfection program. Help your puppy become a confident, well-adjusted dog.

“My puppy won’t follow commands.”

“My puppy won’t relax or go to bed.”

“My puppy is shy or afraid of…”

If your puppy is biting, barking excessively, jumping on people, digging, growling, or engaging in some other unwanted behavior, our Ultimate Behavior Buster course will help you tackle these issues.

These can be frustrating, am I right? Let's fix them once and for all!

The training games covered in the courses in this comprehensive library make puppy training much more fun. More fun together leads to a better bond.

“My puppy is out of control.”

If you're struggling to truly connect and want a better relationship with your puppy where they hang on every word you say…

A better bond leads to a dog that wants to work with you, avoids other distractions, tunes in super fast, and sees you as their "everything."

Now that's the kind of relationship you should have with your puppy!
