I never had a dog in my entire life, but decided to bring a yellow Labrador puppy into my home last February, 2012. Needless to say, I had no idea what was in store for me and quickly realized that I needed help in training Eli. My children and I were actually scared of dogs before meeting Eli. My husband and I hired Michael to train Eli and it was by far one of the BEST decision we have ever made. Michael is extremely knowledgeable and possesses a rare gift, sort of like a dog whisperer. He immediately had Eli enthralled with him and soon Eli was obeying his directives and so was I. I had been very nervous with the undertaking of having a dog, but having Michael by my side gradually put my fears at ease. Michael not only trained Eli to be the wonderful, sweet dog that he is, but he also trained my family and me in understanding Eli. Eli and I both looked forward to Michael’s visits, we were both eager to learn. Eli even costarred in a channel 12 excerpt with Michael about dog training. When Eli first came to live with my family, life was crazy, but now Eli is a member of the family and we couldn’t imagine him not being in our lives. Michael is the dog trainer everyone should have for their dog(s), he is caring, knowledgeable and an all around genuine good person.
