Having spent 15-years in the people business as a pastor, counselor, and life coach, Mike decided it was time for a change of pace in 2016. A lifelong animal lover, a chance part-time job in a box store grooming salon ended up birthing The Doggie Concierge. While offering personal concierge services, clients began approaching him about offering private dog training lessons. In 2018, Mike graduated the animal behavior college. Since then, he has trained hundreds of companion dogs and even dogs of players and coaches in the NFL and NBA. He uses scientific, fear-free, force-free methods and does not utilize choke, prong, or electronic collars. Mike is an (R+/P-) Trainer.
