Canine training is essential in helping your dog learn to be a calm, confident and well-behaved member of your family.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, dog trainers were required to temporarily close their services. This was not only financially difficult on local trainers, but also to the clients who require their expertise in properly training and socializing their pets.
HSLM has turned to Melissa Millett, Founder and Head Trainer of In Dogs We Trust and The Ultimutts, for assistance with training shelter dogs, primarily those who exhibit behavioural issues, for many years. Melissa
also commits to donating her time on a frequent basis by hosting training sessions for HSLM staff and volunteers. Her support of HSLM does not stop there; she and her incredible Ultimutts perform live every year at the HSLM Bark in the Park Festival. HSLM’s signature event was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Melissa has taught thousands of family pets. In fact, 80% of the professional trainers working in London have taken lessons with Melissa!
As an animal expert in obedience, Melissa has been featured on every major Canadian TV network. She is also well known and respected internationally as an advanced trick trainer and performer with Ultimutts.
After being 'discovered' by a 30 veteran animal coordinator, Melissa collaborated to create Ontario Animal Actors. Since then she has been working with major movie and commercial production houses across Canada. Most notably the team co-trained cats for Stephen Kings 2019 Pet Sematary, animals in the 2019 Super Bowl commercial, Krypto the Superdog in Titans (Netflix) and commercials for Duracell, Yoplait and Gund.
