Micheal is a great instructor. He is knowledgeable, methodical, and very supportive of his students. He, Carol, and the rest of the staff work very hard to make sure students leave with the practical knowledge to be solid dog trainers. As long as you put in the work to be a good student and grow your skills, you will succeed here. More...

I love this school! Michael & Carol are amazing! Every trainer I have met is so patient, knowledgeable & friendly. Michael is a fabulous trainer! We love Xavier, the trainer we had last Tuesday! He was so gentle with Meadow & Rapha & you can tell he really loves dogs & training! The facility & grounds are immaculate & very well maintained. Their NADD Dock Diving Trials are very well organized & soon they will have more performance events! & did I mention the pool? It's gorgeous & the water is crystal clear! It's a permanent Dock, very stable so it's perfect for experienced athletes & newbies too! Here's my Meadow at a recent  Dock Diving Trial. More...

I took several courses with Michael, and he superb!  He is able to bring the best out of dogs and trainer-students alike.  His courses are full of insights, logically presented, and always consistent with his personal teaching philosophy.  I have come across other teachers who are geniuses in their fields but could not teach their skills to others.  Michael is able to clearly explain and help you to be able to do them as well.  I feel lucky to have found his school... Thanks to Michael, I am hooked on dog training :) More...

I have been doing some one on one private sessions with a staff member, Anneliese Johnson, and I cannot say how pleased I am.  She is incredibly bright, astute, and articulate.  She is a total natural and professional.  She also possesses the ability to assess the situation at hand and seemingly very easily can remedy it with the needed tools for the exact situation and also can very easily convey the information.  I haven't had the pleasure of working with Michael personally but I feel as if I'm working with a great protege of such.  Hands down, these people are the best.

I had a wonderful experience at the Advanced Obedience Course in June 2015. Michael is articulate about the science of training and just an overall amazing dog trainer and people trainer. I was struggling with some behaviors and Michael was able to break them down for me instantly and give me alternative exercises to strengthen my dogs behavior. It was really nice to have an alternative approach to what I was doing before. Now I have some fun and motivating new tools to continue to train and refine my dogs existing behaviors. Michael is a people trainer besides being a dog trainer. He is patient, kind and informative. His staff of instructors all have the same love for what they do as well. They were also very helpful. Id recommend this program to any trainer wanting to better their skills. I hope to return for more training soon. I highly recommend this program. More...
