The Dog House Resort and Spa
Voted #1 Best of West Michigan 10 Years and Counting!
Hello, My name is Elizabeth, I am the trainer at The Dog House Resort & Spa. Growing up I always wanted to be a vet or help animals in some way. I quickly learned that more pets are given away or even put down due to having behavioral problems over anything else. I knew I would prefer to help people understand their dogs and make living with a pet a constantly enjoyable experience, more than I would working medically on dogs. I graduated from The Animal Behavioral College in 2013 with honors. I really enjoyed their program and continue to work with dogs every day to solve behavioral problems, making better habits. I am a firm believer that it is easier to make good habits than it is to break old ones. Starting every dog off with basic obedience is extremely important, and a great bonding experience for all dog owners!
