What Others Are Saying
Mike has been so great to work with. He taught us the logic behind the training - not just the training ... And I haven't once yet had to assert dominance by raising my voice which is so much more pleasant than methods I've learned in the past. Today, we had a salesperson in our house. She was amazed at how well behaved Olive is at only 14 weeks. Sure - she's still a puppy and I had to remind her of her manners but with gentle reminders she was a total show off and made me so proud. Thanks so much, Mike, for such a great experience!!!

A lesson in your home with Mike is definitely the route to go. Mike clearly loves/understands dogs and knows how to work with and train the owners for a good experience for everyone involved. He gives lots of homework but in the lesson you see glimpses of what your dog will behave like after you do your work with your dog. That motivates me to do my homework. Mike has a great way with dogs and people and that makes the lesson fun for everyone, too, while getting some good work accomplished.

Mike’s course and hand feeding helped Rocky tremendously. I get instant recall 99% of the time. Pretty good for a Husky. He looks at me lovingly after connecting me with a resource and he does not even like food that much. We have a ritual now that he gets pets and love before he will eat each meal. Huge difference in attentiveness and interaction. Still working with my foster fail GSD.

This weekend we took a class from Mike Deathe of Keep it Simple Stupid (KISS) Dog Training on how to introduce a newborn to your dog family. I don't care how long you've owned a dog or how perfect they are, his classes will definitely open your eyes to techniques that make it simple and safe for everyone. Please check them out if you are expecting!

I can say we used KISS for our dog almost 3 years ago. Mike was very transparent as to cost and what he expected from us as owners and what he could provide. This was our 3rd shelter dog and presented us with some challenges. We had Mike come to our home after evaluating comments from a vet and the doggie day care we used. Very pleased with the help Mike gave us. Was worth every penny. Mike, Chance says HI!!!

OK my claim to fame as a dog trainer is “I train owners, not dogs!” Each and every one of my books follow the same principle… I want you to be able to pick up a book and easily get tips and tricks to help you and Fido work together! I have priced both my eBooks and printed books reasonably to help you get some answers without breaking the bank!
