More about Michele
Michele Ellertson, CNWI, is the owner, founder and training director at The Dog’s PACE. She has been training dogs professionally for well over a decade. Although she focuses on scent training today, her background is in behavior modification. This gives her a unique perspective on engaging with all kinds of dogs.
In 2009, Michele was among the first dog trainings in New England to become involved in the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) and the new sport of K9 Nosework. As such, she was instrumental in establishing the foundation necessary to make the sport a success in this region. She currently works with the NACSW as a Certifying Official, in addition to her intense schedule of classes, private lessons and specialty clinics around the country. Michele maintains her own knowledge by attending as many workshops as possible.
Michele has trained in a variety of dog sports, both personally and professionally. However, her primary goals are in the sport of nosework. Her fondness for the sport comes from the tremendous benefits it offers to all dogs, including building confidence, bonding, mental stimulation and pure enjoyment.
