Mike did a great job training our Rottiepit. He worked through a lot of bad behaviors in a short time. Highly recommend Prairie Kennels for all your dog training needs.

Dog Training

Effective, professional trainer. Mike is personable and focused on delivering as much training as possible in the time allotted. He will listen to the owners and then to the dog, diagnose the minimum requirements, tell the owners what he believes the dog needs and what he can provide. Once the dog has the basics of what will become the new regime, it is the owner's / handler's job to reinforce what both parties have learned over the next couple months. I'm very pleased with what he has been able to instill in my Border Collie in only two weeks.

Dog Training

Our Brittany (Posey) is a year and six months - she is high energy, very excitable, loving and stubborn dog. Her main issues were that she jumped when meeting new people, dragged us on walks (even with a pinch collar), had little to no recall, and we wouldn't even think about letting her off leash. Posey spent two weeks with Mike and his family in Cleveland (about an hr from downtown Houston). When we went out to pick Posey up after two weeks, we spent about 2 hours going through all the new commands Mike had taught her. We learned how and why to make corrections with a pinch collar and shock collar. After two weeks Mike had sit, down, climb, and here perfected in Posey. Two months after the training with Mike, Posey is maintaining what she learned. She walks with slack in the leash, can walk off leash (with shock collar), and the climb command is very handy. We point to any object: chair, bench, etc... and Posey will climb and stay. Her recall to "here" is great. Posey is much more attentive. Whenever we have any new issues or forget how to properly correct a behavior Mike has been willing to FaceTime and give us a quick lesson. Highly recommend sending your dog to Mike.

Mike got my dog so under control its crazy. He no longer pulls on the leash and he has hos commands and is immediately responsive to them. It has been a few months now and my dog is still just out of this world. Highly recommend.
