I called Mike weeks after adopting a blue heeler. I wanted to be sure that I had a good handle early on with such a smart and stubborn breed. Mike was quick to respond, and help us. All his methods are positive, and super helpful. He taught our family how to respond to our boy, and trained us as well! Our now year old dog is absolutely wonderful, trained well and noticeably so much better behaved. My neighbors tell me all the time haha! I would definitely recommend Mike, and use his service again if our dog ever requires additional training.
