Michael has been involved in the sport of dog agility since 2001, he is considered one of the pioneers of the sport. Since the earliest days of dog agility, he has always been one of the leading innovators of training and handling techniques bringing many of the European training styles back with him to the United States. He believes the most important aspects of agility training are always teaching the fundamentals and being consistent with your handling.
One of the reasons Michael loves dog training and especially agility is that it is constantly evolving. New training techniques are being developed. Everything can be accomplished by using games, tricks, and positive reinforcement. Whether it is a personal protection dog, a family pet, or agility or an obedience dog they all should be happy dogs. That is what I strive to train - happy dogs and even happier handlers.
