My name is Elle Bee and I am a professional dog trainer and an AKC certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. My passion for dogs and all animals has always been a part of who I am. My dog training journey began when I was 14 years old and my family became volunteer puppy raisers for a national nonprofit service dog organization. My love for dog training was discovered in December 2005 when my first service puppy came into my life.
After that, I spent my time shadowing various trainers across multiple animal training industries learning all that I could about animal behavior modification. It wasn’t until I took my first job as a Professional Dog Trainer, while in college, that I realized I had found my true calling.
After getting married in 2016 my husband and I decided to move from Colorado back to his hometown of Posen, MI where I would begin my next adventure of starting my own dog training business.
Today, I have over 10 years of professional training experience and am getting to meet new and wonderful dog lovers every day in Northeast Michigan. My focus is on developing the relationship between you and your dog. I use positive training methods, basic manners, and enrichment activities to enhance the human-dog bond. I specialize in puppy socialization, basic obedience, reactive behaviors, as well as therapy dog training.
