Wicked Good Dog, LLC provides a one stop place for all of your pet service needs. We provide Dog Daycare, Grooming, Training, Boarding, Walking, and In-Home Pet Sitting Services. We strongly believe that every dog and family are different and that services should be tailored to the specific needs of each and every furry family member.

Our journey began in 2007 when Michelle Carlin, our owner, sought training services for her new puppy, BB. Michelle had a Master’s degree in psychology and spent 20 years working with people with behavior challenges. BB was becoming aggressive and Michelle was unable to find a trainer that understood scientific learning theory. She decided to take matters into her own hands and enrolled in Animal Behavior College to help BB. Inspired by BB, Michelle became a certified dog trainer, left human services, and went to the dogs! She opened a training studio, and started dog walking and pet sitting for all the special dogs who don’t do well in a traditional kennel. She later added playgroups for more social dogs and now has a daycare facility located on 2.5 acres of land. We are continuously developing the yards and maintaining a high staff ratio to make a more personalized and enriching experience for the dogs who attend daycare.

BB is the inspiration for our name. Every time someone asked Michelle why she didn’t give up and re-home him, she would say “But he’s a wicked good dog in the house”. With the belief that all dogs are wicked good dogs and can be successful and happy in the right environment, we continue to add services designed to meet the needs of each dog. We are excited by the challenges fulfilling our mission holds and look forward to meeting you and your special friend.
