Mike has trained dogs since he was a kid; as a child, he would rather sleep outside with his dogs than in the house! A life-long dog lover, Mike has a unique insight into a dog’s psychology, and it helps him make fast connections with trouble dogs. His positive reinforcement techniques help build confidence in the dogs he trains, and makes for a lasting impression on the dog’s lifestyle.
Mike has taught individual and group classes professionally for the last 7 years, and has been active in numerous canine competition lines (PSA Sport, Schutzhund, breed conformation trials, and more) for a decade. He has volunteered at various animal shelters, providing free training to troubled dogs … thus helping their chances to find a forever home. Mike’s love and expertise shines through with every dog he trains!
