Michael was a pleasure to work with. I contacted him about a VERY high-energy 5 month old puppy (viszla) to help us give her a good foundation for obedience, but in a positive way. He spent many hours with us teaching our puppy the “basics” like patience and focus through positive reinforcement. He clearly loves dogs, especially puppies, and it was great to work within someone who cares about our puppy as much as we do. He never rushed us, and offered endless resources. I enjoyed hearing his perspective on the psychology of dogs, such as reading their signs, and this helped us understand our dog better. Finally, I was pregnant, and his tips/resources for planning for dog/baby were also much appreciated.
