About Patience Inspired Dog Training 

Patience': Noun
    1. The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset

    My name is Michelle Alexandre and I got into dog training because I love to help people and their pets. When I adopted an 8 week old Border Collie 
    I had no idea of what I was getting into.
    I went through basic to advanced dog classes and still had major control issues.  I needed help, but couldn't 
    find it. So I decided to become a dog trainer myself.  I've worked hard to be the best trainer I can be, and Patience is a much better behaved dog!

    My journey (15 yrs and counting) has taught me how integral and difficult patience is in dog training. This is why I named my company and my 
    crazy, high strung, highly driven, never napping, always moving Border Collie, Patience. Without her I never would have become a dog trainer, 
    and certainly not one with so much experience with incorrigible"BAD DOG!" behavior. 

    I can help you with everything from Puppy Manners to Competition Obedience.

    So if your dog is 
    jumping, pulling, 
    nipping, barking, chewing, peeing or just won't listen, let me help you.

    I will show you how to have a dog you will love AND be proud of!
