Author. Professional Dog Trainer. Presenter.



As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Melissa has moved all her classes to an online format.  There is a #DogTrainingChallenge (updated 3 times a week) on her brand new Youtube Channel . All currently enrolled students at Everydog Training Center have private playlists (scent work, manners 1 and tricks/games classes) while everything else is public to encourage people who are home with their dogs to stay active with them in new ways as we ride this out together, from our own homes. Stay safe.

Melissa is working on another book!

This is geared towards those who are interested in working with animals professionally (basically, the things “they” don’t tell you about being a dog trainer). As a result, she will not be taking private sessions or in-home clients for the foreseeable future. Contact her directly for responsible, reputable recommendations for dog training and behavior consulting.

New England Federation of Humane Societies has been canceled

Melissa was so excited to be invited to speak at the 2020 NEFHS annual conference April 4-6, 2020 in New Hampshire, but as a result from the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference was (correctly) canceled. Stay tuned for more information as it comes out.

Please be patient while Melissa moves everything, including her MuttStuff blog and her parenting writing over to this new website.
