About Us

Merissa Micochero

Having been raised on a farm, Merissa's passion for animals began at a very young age.  Her upbeat personality combined with years of knowledge makes each session a positive experience for both dog and handler.  She thrives watching the dogs in her charge improve and advance in their skills bringing joy and relief to their handlers. She pushes herself in the crazy sport of IPO that she's totally hooked into, and loves the gratification she feels when her clients overcome challenges and develop their understanding of how to yield better results with their dogs. She specializes in the areas of human aggression and reactivity, leash skills, foundation obedience, tricks, obstacles and competitive obedience.
