Board and train at a facility
I called Mike for help with my 7 month old bulldog Didi - who to me was just crazy haha but soon came to learn that she just needed a better way to channel all her energy. We signed up for his 30-day program. He helped achieve way more than I imagined, He definitely did more than he needed to & went above and beyond for Didi. To ensure she was getting the most out of the work without making it feel like work which made her look forward to do more and actually listen and behave without making her but because she wanted to. Not only did he help her be a more confident and obedient pup but he also took the time to teach me how to keep up with the work and how to use all the props/accessories in order to help her understand what she is doing wrong without making it feel like punishment. I am glad to have chosen Mike - he is a great dog trainer & person who does care about your dog and helping you with him/her. Thank you Mike!!Sep 20, 2019VerifiedCircle D K9 Advantage's reply
Wow, thank you for the kind words Yami! It was such a pleasure working with the both of you. Please keep us posted on your progress. And never hesitate to contact me with questions about your training in the future! Always ready proud to serve. #BuildAnUnbreakableBondWithYourDog
Mike has done a great job learning and implementing his young dog, Hammer, in Bart Bellon’s NePoPo system. He has made an effort to travel to and learn from many of the top trainers in the dog sport world. By adding these tools to his training toolbox, coupled with his experience titling a strong dog (Kane) in schutzhund, Mike is equipped to assist you with any pet obedience training needs you may have and/or help you get a successful start in the dog sport world.Aug 26, 2019

Mike is a top trainer and I would highly recommend his dog training services.Aug 5, 2019Circle D K9 Advantage's reply
Thank you Jim!
I wouldn’t be where I am today without Mike’s modern animal training method. I have worked with horses for a good part of my life with many different trainers. No system communicates as clearly with your animal like NePoPo... as Mike always says; “ it is the language of modern dog training!” Lucky for me it works for my horse as well! My horse is unbelievably enthusiastic about learning and can’t get enough of this awesome training. Mike is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to see their dog excited about learning...the transformation will be awe inspiring!Aug 5, 2019Circle D K9 Advantage's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Meet and great first and foremost! Important to have one on one dialog to establish training needs. Clear communication between owner and trainer is paramount to our training foundation.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The Bart Bellon NePoPo®️ Silver and Gold School which includes an E-Collar training certification. I am currently the President and Training Director of the South Florida Schutzhund Club. We have over 30 members that participate in the Protection Sport formally known as Schutzhund, now called IGP. I was introduced to the sport and my first Master Coach Phil Hoelcher in1984. Additionally, the struggle to always improve sometimes leads to unintentional mistakes, but inevitably leaves us better prepared for next time.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Started at age 13 showing German Shepard’s in AKC obedience and conformation.
