About Mike

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been training dogs for the last 10 years and previous dog owner for 30 years. I specialize in teaching owners to regain alpha lead in the home and help dogs go through rehabilitation to follow masters lead. My focus is to capture a dog's attention before they become fixated on a bad behavior. This process is then repeated until a new behavior is established. I then put together a plan for the dog owners to follow so then can duplicate the teaching process at home. I live out a positive lifestyle and dogs feel relaxed with the positive energy I give off. Some of my priorities is to monitor and observe dogs behavior and personality, exercise and walks and providing direction so that the dog feels safe. Note: Will only accept dogs that get along with other dogs. As a professional courtesy please bathe your pet before dropping off for boarding, Thank you.

Great job! the pups love being with Mike. Coming home is a breeze and the pups are new dogs, relaxed and under control.
Mike was great and took great care of Duke during the weekend. Duke is a senior and takes medication and has a special diet that Mike easily took on and made sure that all of Duke's needs were met. Times to meet and drop off were flexible and worked for both of us. Mike is definitely a great dog sitter and I felt very secure leaving Duke with him.
From the minute Mike walked thru our door he started working with Gracie, within minutes he had her under control. Gracie, a one year old rescued American Staffordshire Terrior, has issues jumping on folks, nipping and becomes easily distracted. He focused on the jumping and nipping on his first visit. Within the hour of our scheduled visit Gracie was a changed dog. He was professional, patient and above all personable...he showed us what "we" needed to do in order to affect change in Gracie. He practiced his technique with us, and Gracie, and left us with homework. A day later and we have noticed immediate results in Gracie's behavior. We plan on scheduling additional time with Mike to assist us with both our and Gracie's behavorial requirements. For one visit, Well done Mike! We highly recommend you consider Mike should you have a pet that you are having a difficult time controling.
