Quick response and was great with my dog. Learned a lot that has helped my dog's behavior...I highly recommend.Dec 31, 2018Verified
My husband and I recently adopted a large, untrained and unsocialized 5-mo.-old puppy. Though we had very little dog experience, we started working with Mike on day one and he made us feel comfortable that our dog was both safe around others and trainable. He gave us the tools to work with her properly, using a system of 100% positive reinforcement. He coached the dog, us and our kids. Nearly 6 weeks later, we have a sweet and loyal dog who plays with other dogs, walks well on a leash, is learning manners and exploring the world more confidently.Nov 26, 2018Verified
Mike is a great trainer! He was very good with Bella as she has never been socialized! He took the time to take her to parks where she could interact with people dogs and cars and you name it! After 6 sessions I feel she has come along way and we have a better relationship with her!! Thanks Mike!!Oct 2, 2018Verified
The personalized training is amazing, I have a complete different dog now than when we began our sessions with Mike at Omni Canine. My 1 1/2 year old pit bull is much calmer, listens now when I give commands and has become an excellent companion. I am so impressed with the results that we are continuing with advanced training sessions. This truly was money well spent, worth every penny!Sep 21, 2018Verified
Mike was great! He came and within the first 20 minutes he had our "out-of-control" doing things we didn't think were possible. Loved the fact that he took his time to really learn about our dog. He didn't just run in and run out. Mike gave us the hope we lost. We had hired two previous trainers that only wanted the money. Neither one cared about our dog or aboit us. We know Mike is different. He does genuinely care. We are so excited to work with him. I would highly recommend him and his partner to anyone who needs help with their dogs. They are the real deal!!!! Thanks Mike!!Mar 8, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We do an in depth evaluation of the current dog/owner situation. This takes about 1 hour and the cost of the evaluation is $75-$100 (depending on your location). Most issues can be addressed in this session, and the ways to change unwanted behavior can be implemented after one session. Once the evaluation is complete, we will set goals and expectations for future sessions. Training is often a long term commitment, and discounts are available for training packages. Pricing is based on the training evaluation, type of training involved, and your location because we come to you! The average training prices are as follows: 1 Session: $150 5 Sessions: $450 10 Sessions: $850 If you choose to buy a 5 or 10 session training package, a portion of the initial evaluation is credited towards the cost of your training package! PLEASE NOTE: The costs outlined above are for single dogs. If multiple dogs are involved, that will be reflected in the quote we provide. REFUND POLICY: If a training package is cancelled, OmniCanine does offer the following refund policy: 1) The consultation fee will revert to the original quoted price. 2) All redeemed sessions will revert to the single session price. 3) If the package is cancelled within 24 hours of an upcoming scheduled session, that session will be deducted from your refund. 4) The remaining balance will be refunded to you within 5 business days with the refund calculations included. This refund policy is in place in order to prevent any persons from purchasing training packages to receive per session discounts, and then cancelling the package once the desired behaviors/number of sessions are attained.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I will meet with the client for the initial evaluation. All aspects of the dog/ owner relationship will be examined. A set of goals and expectations will be agreed to. We all get to work to create the dog that fits your lifestyle!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 30 years of hands on training experience. This includes basic obedience to advanced dog sports. He has certified dogs for Search and Rescue, service dogs, and therapy dogs. I have also placed multiple dogs in personal protection both in the states and Dominican Republic. My personal dog is Schutzhund titled and he has trained multiple Schutzhund dogs for clients. I work with the American Working Dog Club for all my certifications.
