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.
