Hi, I’m Michelle Blackman – head trainer and owner of Port Paws Dog Training, in Port Douglas.
I have always been a dog person. After fostering and owning dogs for the past 8 years, I decided to take my dog training skills one step further.
I am near completion of a Certificate III in Dog Training & Behaviour through the NDTF (National Dog Training Federation). This certification is the only nationally accredited certification for dog training in Australia.
On top of studies, I have travelled around Australia completing mentorship programs with well-established behaviour trainers.
I combine these skills with my love for dogs to create outcome focused dog training programs – not just about teaching commands but consider the whole dog and its well-being.
