Mike's Vision

Mike started off with a goal: to save any troubled dog or canine relationship that would have otherwise ended in a shelter, or something worse. This underlying mission is what drove him to open Spot On! in August 2015.

Boasting 15 years of experience, Mike is well equipped to give your dog the best approach to success and obedience. His expertise allows him to connect with dog owners, explaining how to train their dogs in a logical and sensible way. This method thereby equips each dog owner with the skills and tools needed to maintain training with their dog after Mike’s work is done.

Mike’s method of training produces effective results all while keeping your dog’s tail waggin’! With no shortage of positive stories resulting from Mike’s training, you’ll know that your pup is in good hands while also getting the training he or she needs. Mike is also the proud owner of two Belgian Malinois named Zeus and Ziva.

What Our Clients Say

I'd say training is going well. 🙂
Huge congratulations to Max the German Shepherd from Orange Village on his recent graduation. Max recently completed our private lesson program due to minor aggression issues which are much more manageable since training. Great job Max! 🎉🎉
Huge congratulations to Willow the 8-month-old Golden Retriever from Aurora on her recent graduation. Willow just completed our 7-Day board and train and did extremely well.  We wish them nothing but the best.  Great job Willow!!! 🥳🎉🎉🎉
Here is Sierra having some quality time with Rudy a Great Dane mix.  Not only do we provide training and socialization but we also spend quality time with the dogs just having fun. It's not always work and the dogs love it.
We get to see so many different breeds of dogs at Spot On! ⠀
Can you guess what breeds students Roma, Walden and Griffey are? ⠀

Our kennel manager hard at work in her new office.
We had an employee appreciation night at The Foundry in Medina with indoor go kart racing. Here's a picture of our amazing All-Star team of trainers from left to right Cassi, Kristian, Racheal, Carolyn, Danielle & Brigid.  We couldn't do it without you!!!
It was a doodle party here at the kennel. This is Halle, Bear and Sunny showing off their obedience.
Here at Spot On! we train dogs big and small.  This is Caine and Bentley on a field trip to the store for more distraction training.  Looks like they are both doing great!!
Sorry I had to. 😃
