Who is Ultimate Companion?


Phil Michaud is the owner of Ultimate Companion dog training and Pet Stop® of Northwest Connecticut.

I have been in the Pet Professional business since 1981. I started working at a kennel learning the art of pet grooming, dog training and the business of management of the kennel.

As the demands of our jobs, careers, family and personal life increase, we have less time for everything… including our pets. I saw a need for a more personal one to one pet service to help people and their pets to cope with these changes.

In 1996 I started Ultimate Companion, which provided private home dog training lessons and also a pet sitting and dog walking service. This enabled people and their pets to have more flexibility within their lifestyle, to continue without stress and anxiety. The in home private dog training lessons provide a customized approach to deal with any and all behavior issues at a time convenient to the pet owner.

In 1999, we started to expand our Pet Professional service with pet containment systems. As our lives have changed, so have our relationship with our pets …they have become our family! We spend more time with them and also demand more from them. The Pet Stop® pet containment system allows us to enjoy our pets more freely indoors and outdoors with safety and protection in mind.

With all my experience training pets, it was an easy fit for our company to offer such a great product to keep your pets safe and happy on our Pet Stop® pet containment system.

We have thousands of pets on our system enjoying the freedom of the outdoors safely that tie-outs and pens cannot provide.

We no longer have our pet sitting service. We are continuing to provide private dog training lessons as well as the Pet Stop® pet containment system. Please call or email for a phone consultation.
