Author. Professional Dog Trainer. Presenter.


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.

Melissa will be presenting a live webinar on October 2nd! Raising Canine has invited Melissa to give a presentation on what to consider for dog trainers who are working in more densely populated areas. More information is here:

New England Federation of Humane Societies! Melissa has been invited to speak at the 2020 NEFHS annual conference April 4-6, 2020 in New Hampshire. Stay tuned!

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