About The Presenter

Michelle Martiya is a dog trainer and pet stylist with over 20 years’ experience in the dog grooming industry. Having worked in both grooming salons and mobile grooming businesses, she is very familiar with the problems that can develop when an animal is not groomed on a regular basis. She is also familiar with the challenges that owners face in maintaining their dog's coat between grooming sessions, such as not knowing how to properly brush their dogs, or how to resolve behavioral issues that may arise when introducing grooming to their pet. Along with her mobile grooming business in Boca Raton, Florida, Martiya also works with other groomers and their clients to help dogs that are fearful and/or anxious during the grooming process. She teaches owners how to use positive reinforcement to prepare their puppies for a lifetime of grooming, or how to counter condition their dogs to difficult procedures, such as nail trimming and blow drying.
