My wife, myself and our Golden-Doodle would like to thank Michael for assisting us in the training of our dog. We had a total of five private lessons with you coming to our house when our dog was about 11 months old. Your teaching and coaching skills are excellent and gave us the wherewithal to manage our very spirited dog. Each lesson built upon the prior sessions and the plan for the hour was established when we explained the difficulties we experienced the week before. We have had three dogs over the past 25 years. The present dog was a much greater challenge! We became confident in our ability to manage the problems we had and to continue her training as she matures and becomes more tractable. Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge and for providing continuous encouragement.
