Hi my name is Michelle, and I'm a dogaholic!!
After working so many years in various canine professions, I kept seeing dog owners suffering from the same problems over and over, and so with my very own unique vision... Michelle's Canine Care was born!

What "Meet Me" page would be complete without a picture of my very own beasties??
Cooper is my American Bulldog, my project dog, he very much keeps me on my toes and is deemed by society as "reactive".
I personally like to describe him as sensitive... hes a sensitive soul who gets a little anxious when in new environments and new experiences and is learning to deal with those emotions in a more appropriate way...

Bailie is my Staffordshire Bull Terrier, my soul dog. He is my boy, my baby, my other half... From being a puppy to his almost 11 year old self, I've never spent more than 10 days away from him! He's just perfect, but then, we all say that don't we?

You may have noticed that my boys were the inspiration behind my logo too....
Ryder is the youngest member of the family! She is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and is currently 14 months old! She is the whirlwind of the house, very active and extremely affectionate, she fits perfectly into our lives. Ryder is working through her Training Level Dog Parkour at the moment and accompanies me on most trips when I'm out. She excels at reading other dogs and interacting accordingly.
