Melissa has a way with animals. She also has a way with people. I brought my enthusiastic Corgi puppy to her for training and she instantly showed us how patient, clear and thorough she is with both people and their animals. Positive reinforcement doesn’t only work with puppies. In order to continue the lessons at home I had to pay close attention to her instructions. I also had to build my confidence (to show my puppy that I knew what I was doing). We still have work to do and I will continue to reach out to Melissa for training.
