99% SUCCESS RATE--
I have a 99% Success Rate in improving/modifying unwanted behavior using Positive Dog Training Reinforcement Methods.
In 2009, I adopted a 4 month old Rottie who became my inspiration in training dogs. My then newly adopted pup was born with Addison's disease and a challenging behavior. It wasn't easy for my family in the beginning but I could not and would not give up on him. He lived for 7 years and he paid me back a thousandfold. ...
It's like a miracle! Two days later, he's still like a whole new dog!

We loved working with Michael. He was funny, considerate, and always looking for ways to make our lives better. He was great with our dog, and always very supportive. The lessons he taught us will help us with every dog we adopt from here on out.

Michael is awesome! He trained us how to be good dog owners and how to train with her and not against her! Luna was all over the place at first but now she has more self control and listens to commands and has more focus! Loved it!

I really enjoyed our training session with Truffle. We have been practicing and the pulling is already getting much better. She does not bolt when I open the door. She also responds to the hand signal to come from more than half way across the back field. The down command is much harder. I have only gotten her to do it once. The heel is improving, but we have a long way to go.

After 90 minutes with Mike I feel comfortable with what I need to do to control my dogs leash pulling, jumping and how to prompt her to come. In person is key! You Tube and google don’t match because he is a dog whisperer and gets to know your dog within the first 20 min.
I'm so impressed by how much my dog has improved with just one in-home session! Michael was great to work with, he gave us some really valuable advice.
It’s been just about a week since our appointment and my dog has more direction around the house and it’s better behaved, he seems to follow well to the leadership we even thought him some tricks at 5 years old! We are working on the leash reactivity, which was the main problem but Michael gave is the right steps to correct it and it really seems to be working !
I feel more confident because now I know how to handle it and he knows what I’m asking, our walks have been more enjoyable ! It was all thanks to Michael he is very knowledgeable about any type of dog behavior would highly recommend !
Michael is an excellent trainer.
He helped train both our very reactive 2+ year old German Shepherd (Toby) and more importantly helped train us to better work and deal with Toby.
We used Michael several times including a few sessions to assist us (and Toby) better manage
Toby's reactiveness to people coming to the door, etc...Michael also helped us work with Toby so that he was more controlled around other dogs, people and in crowded situations.
I can't recommend Michael enough... excellent trainer, listener, mentor...

Hi Mike! AN AMAZING THING HAPPENED THE OTHER DAY.
About a month ago you came to our house to help train Sara, our black lab/vizsla rescue. You showed us how to use "the zone" when someone comes to the door as a means of taming her jumping and craziness. We've been working on it with her, and today, when the doorbell rang, sara went straight to the zone on her own! She didn't stay, but did return when I sent her. I was just amazed.
Thank you! Along those lines, I'd like to schedule some training sessions with you after the holidays. I know there's a great dog trapped inside this crazy rescue puppy!

Cocoa has improved significantly.
We have stopped letting her claim the doorway as her territory and we feel a lot more relaxed when guests come over. They barely even bark we when we come home! She still tries to climb on us when we walk in, but not as bad as before. We reward good behavior with treats and everything is going well INSIDE the home. We still need to do more training interacting with other dogs. We are hoping that by late summer we will be able to pick up where we left off.
I thank you so much for your professionalism and this miracle that we thought we would never see! I will reach out to you when we are ready!

Michael has trained both of our dogs. We first used him to help us with our min pin that was very reactive on the leash. With Michael’s help, we were able to learn techniques to improve how we handled our dog. Many of our friends and family have commented on the significant behavior improvement, and you can also tell he feels more confident when we are walking him. We were able to apply many of the techniques we learned to our younger dog. We went to Michael again when we noticed she was having trouble meeting dogs while on the leash. He has helped our family so much, and we appreciate his patience and knowledge. We highly recommend his services.
