Meet Michael Ward
After training dogs for the past 13 years, Michael decided to turn his passion into his profession. So he attended the Tom Rose School in High Ridge, MO and gained theoretical knowledge as well as additional hands-on training. He is now accredited as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
Since graduation Michael has developed his own training approach, combining elements of both, the traditional and the motivational method, as well as the use of your energy. His training involves a balance of praise and correction, and he is more than happy to explain that in greater detail during the evaluation.
Regardless of age or temperament, Michael loves all dog breeds. He believes no dog is too old or dumb to be trained. While living in Germany, Michael saw that well-trained dogs were often brought to restaurants, malls and stores. It is his dream to achieve the same level of dog tolerance in the United States.
Michael has a natural bond with dogs. They are drawn to him and show him a high level of respect due to his calm confidence. This mutual understanding makes him comfortable around all dogs and able to fix even their most challenging behavioral problems.
