If I had a dog who needed training or who had some behavior problems and I lived in the greater Denver area, I’d head to Michael Curran. It’s been my pleasure to know Michael as a fellow dog trainer and behaviorist for a few years now, and you just can’t go wrong with him. He really understands dogs at a deep level, and he uses humane methods that motivate dogs and that help build people’s relationships with their dogs. He has special skill in reaching shy and reactive dogs, even those that are extremely so. His photography is wonderful, too, as is his writing. Simply put, he is a very nice man who has great skill in reaching and teaching dogs and their people. He has earned my very highest recommendation!
