I’m Michelle Huntting
Hey there! Michelle Huntting here. I am thrilled to be a part of a growing DOG community both in Austin, Texas and across the United States! Glad you have or are thinking about joining us!
Just a little bit about me, so you know what you are signing up for: I have been busy in the last 13 years, not only with my twin boys, but also with my profession. Training dogs is not just my life passion and purpose, but it’s also something that I work daily on improving my skills. In the past decade I have written four books (Gotta Go!, Control On Leash, Come, Boy!, and The Holiday Survival Kit), hosted a pod casts with some of the most well-respected scientist, trainers, and authors from around the world (we’ve had over 20k listens!), been a contributing author to magazines (including Autism Parenting Magazine), created a school for dog trainers, had my own therapy dog (his name was Boy), and so much more. It has been a fun journey and one that I am glad you are thinking about joining!
I am double nationally certified (Animal Behavior College & Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers) in professional dog training) and earned my bachelors degree from Laurel University in High Point, North Carolina. While I lived in Dallas for two years, I was named top five Dog Trainers in the “Best of Dallas” both years in a row.
I was one of the first dog trainers to use online courses to train and have been doing so successfully for over 10 years! In fact, it has been such a huge success, we decided to revamp my entire business to being on-line. Now all of my students coast-to-coast can enjoy every group class and one-on-one coaching right in there own living room! We have created a national dog community (Team Dog ATX) and that’s really where the heart-center is at with my company. My goal is bring us together, learn from one-another and really just become better pet guardians.
And for those of that you that live in Austin (aren’t we lucky?? I love this place!), we have many events going on through-out the month and for those of you that join the Team Dog ATX Elite membership, we will be meeting in person once a month for two hours in different places around Austin to work on handling and training skills.
Thank again for checking us out! I look forward to getting to know you and your canine more in the following months. Oh, and if you have questions, please let us know! Otherwise, join Team Dog ATX and let’s get started at “training the dog you’ve always wanted!”
