I highly recommend Fleur de Lead Dog Training. They do a great job teaching us about our dogs, They don't just tell us how to get the dogs to react to different commands, they tell us why the dogs react the way they do. I look forward to the follwing weeks to help my dog behave better. More...
Mike is a great teacher, and the system he uses is really easy to implement and very effective. My corgi was a VERY independent dog and always preferred to do what she wanted to do in every situation. Over the 6 week course, we built an incredible bond and trust with one another that I didn't think would be possible. I'm so grateful that I found this class! More...
Fun, easy, and accessible! Would 1000% recommend.
Mike's training program has helped us bond and work with our new dog in a really helpful, structured way. We had the loud, anxious dog in our classes and he made sure we were able to continue and get one-on-one help when needed. Great value for the program with a really caring instructor. More...

Teddy is our 5 y/o Shepherd mix. He is a rescue dog who was never properly trained. Before participating in Fleur de Lead Dog Training, Teddy was our “problem child”. Teddy knew the basic commands “Sit”, “Lie down”, and “stay”; however, he would pick and choose when he wanted to obey. It was always a miserable experience trying to walk him because he would pull on the leash and also get on his hind legs and bark when he saw other dogs. We were always nervous about introducing him to strangers due to him being territorial.
For a while, we were contemplating very expensive board and train programs. Thankfully, friends told us about Fleur de Lead. This 6-week training program led by Mike provided us with the tools we need to train Teddy to become a more obedient and happier dog. We followed Mike’s dog training guide and spent about 1 hour every night training Teddy. By the end of the six weeks, Teddy went from a dog that always whined and barked at dogs in sight to a dog that could lie still while I walked 20+ feet away from him while surrounded by other dogs.
We also love Fleur de Lead’s free socialization classes on Sunday mornings where Teddy has learned how to interact and socialize with other dogs.
We are so thankful to Mike for helping us change our dog-parent relationship with Teddy. More...
Mike is fantastic. I go to the dog park regularly. After the first class, I was at the dog park one night and recognized another student from my class. Soon after, who shows up but Mike who apparently had met him there just to discuss his dog! His wife spoke to me at length about my dog's littermate before I even took the class. They really care about the dogs and are very giving of their time. I loved the class and I love going to the large field socialization where I frequently will ask Mike questions about my dog. I feel like I know and understand my dog much better because of it and it gives me comfort knowing that if I have any problems, he will always be there to ask. They're wonderful! More...

Really enjoyed this class!!! Mike is very knowledgeable and a super nice guy! I brought my 3 legged dog through and she did amazing! Would recommend!
It was such a great class for the owners to learn and understand our dogs!! Not only did Mike teach us human lessons throughout his classes, but he also had us all succeed in teaching our puppies the lessons and commands for becoming great family members.
Love Mike and Fleur de Lead!! I recommend everybody to him!

Michael’s course is terrific. He is able to explain each technique in a way that is easily understandable and easy to implement. I love that I am the one training my dog & essentially Mike is training me on how to train my dog. I can’t emphasize enough just how great this course has been for our dog & I highly recommend that you give it a try. The course absolutely works, if you work the course! More...
Love Mike! He is amazing and patient. The only trainer we will ever use.

Wore my Fleur de Lead T shirt today and had a lady chase me down in the store to tell me how great y'all were and then a girl at Fire House Subs said her dog came to classes too.
Michael is the ONLY dog trainer that I will recommend any dog owner to. Very successful class lead by a very knowledgeable and compassionate trainer.
Can't wait to start training on January 7th. Very excited and have heard nothing but good things about this company. :)
If you do what Mike tells you during the 6 week class, you will love the changes you see. He is always helpful even outside of class and loves seeing your dogs. It's a fun class!

Mike is a big supporter of Friends of the Animals. He helps us work with our fosters so they will become a good member of their new family.

Dick Russell was training Michael when our German Shepherd was attending Dick's obedience class. Since then, Michael has been a tremendous help. Michael is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure you and your family are successful with the training. He will meet with you at your convenience to answer any questions you may have with your pets. He takes pride in his work and is a very compassionate trainer. Bo, our German Shepherd, loves going to socialization where he is able to interact with dogs of all sizes and people. Thanks to Michael, people always tell us that Bo is a well mannered dog. We highly recommend Michael to help you train your dog.

I love Fleur de Lead! Mike is so dedicated to the dogs and their success. I'm so glad we chose them for both of our dogs--an adult and a puppy. Our house is a happier place! Thank you, Mike! More...
Mike and Maria are the best in the business. Their unique gift for training dogs will help you train your life long pet to be well behaved, happy and a joy to be with. Find a class, show up and do your part! More...
Mike and Maria are wonderful people who are truly dedicated to helping you and your dog! My Golden Retriever Mix, Z, was terrified of everything but they helped him overcome his fears in training and socialization class. They never expected too much of him or got angry with him when he wasn't listening because he was scared. They understood his fear and gave me great advice for training at home that helped his anxiety! More...
