In only a few months, Mike has taken my large, out-of-control puppy to a gentle, obedient dog who is eager to learn new things and can be taken places because he is so well-behaved. Mike is very clear on how I can reinforce the training. My dog is a wonderful Read More

Michael customized a specific program for 6 month old rescue and my family (two young kids 3,5 yo included) and set us up that we had tools even when he was not there. He made himself super accessible and worth every penny. Myself and my family recommend him highly.

We have 2 dogs Shelby, is a chewer and Ebony has some anxiety issues. Mike came for the consult meeting and was very compassionate and said what he would do in our training sessions. He did not use any sprays just verbal commands and is not rough with the training. Read More

We used Michael’s Pack to help train our puppy Zoey. When we first rescued Zoey, she was full of unbridled energy (to say the least) and we needed some guidance as to how to communicate effectively with her. We had 5 sessions with Adam and he was an absolute godsend. Read More

Michael trained my dog to behave in all the ways I needed him to. However, my very favorite part of Michael’s Pack is indoor doggie playtime. It’s for dogs weighing up to 35lbs, it’s supervised by a trainer, and it’s ‘almost’ year-round. When it’s too cold/rainy for my 10lb lil Read More
- Lori Iskowitz

Michael Schaier has saved our lives. Our family thoughtfully decided to get a dog and went to the Westminster Dog Show, “Meet the Breeds” to find the right dog and we fell for the Japanese, Kishu Ken. After proper vetting by the Texas breeder, we picked up Belle from Laguardia Read More
Thank you, Michael! At first, our puppy was so out of control, that we wondered whether we could even keep him. After 6 sessions with Michael training both our dog and us, we could not imagine our lives without Petey. His expertise, consistency, and patience helped us in addressing all Read More
