Mike's Services

In today’s world, many dog training schools offer impossible results that are obtained through the use of tricks or gimmicks. These methods often involve the use of food to entice your dog to do what you ask. The shortfall to this approach is that when your dog is not hungry or when there are distractions around that are stronger than his desire for food, he will not do what you ask.

Mike does not use food, clickers, or gimmicks, just gentle touch, voice praise, love, and affection to gain the dog’s trust and loyalty so that his one desire is to please you with whatever you ask of him. Mike teaches you hand signals and body language that your dog learns to respond to. His goal is to take your dog to a one command response to a complete off-lead where you no longer need the leash to control your dog. All breeds, all ages, and all sizes benefit from his program. Mike will provide you with practical solutions for any and all problems or situations that you may come up against.

Mike does not work with structured classes as these do not simulate a real-life environment. Instead, each client has an individualized program geared to them that works at your convenience and pace. Mike’s course is 6 month in length for one price and, if life gets in the way of training, he make allowances. Everyone gets sick or needs to work late or wants to take a vacation. Mike’s program allows you the luxury of not worrying that you have to be in class at a set time, or that you lose out on that particular lesson. Mike encourages his clients to work at their program during their absence and to pick-up where they left off when they next come in. All prospective new clients are encouraged to visit the training facility during the open hours posted below to assess whether the program, environment, and facilities are the right fit for you, your family, and your canine.

Training is half-an-hour and Mike encourages you to remain for some playtime and socialization after your workout. Mike operates with open hours where you pick the times that best suit your schedule. He likes to see his clients twice weekly to ensure that you and your dog are processing the lesson and that if, you are having some difficulties, Mike can address them quickly and provide positive solutions for correction the problem. Family and friends are welcome to attend the training sessions and observe.

Mike is committed to helping you train your dog, throughout the program and beyond, from the time you sign up. He asks for your commitment in return. The fees for the program are non-refundable.
