My daughter lives in Philly with her little 9 months old Maltese. Unfortunately, the puppy yapped so much that she was getting complaints. We needed help training the puppy; otherwise our daughter would face eviction. We are so happy we found Michael. The first time our puppy met Michael, he started yapping non-stop. As soon as Michael took his leash, he quieted immediately and sat by his side. Michael explained to us that to train a puppy, WE needed to be trained first. He taught us how to be a puppy owner so we can teach our puppy to behave. The puppy is back in Philly, adjusting well to city life. We think very highly of Michael and would recommend him, in a heartbeat, to anyone in need of assistance with their dog. We hope to have Michael back to conduct more advanced training with us once we have mastered the skills he has provided and puppy is a little older.
