Loyal Companions, LLC, Certified Master Trainer
I am a graduate of International Acclaimed
Highland Canine School for Dog Trainers in
I was not only a graduate of the Master
Dog Trainer program, I was also a student in the
Excellence Training Program which focused on training non-canines.
I have been active with dog training my entire life, a strong desire for excellence in this field led me to Highland Canine where I learned invaluable training skills for all canine needs. I am experienced in training basic and advanced obedience, behavior modification, in addition to specialty skills (Service Dogs) for mobility, scent, and protection training.
I am a Professional Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, a Professional Premium Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and a member of the National Assn. of Canine Scent Work. Mike is also Certified as a Pet Dog First Responder with K9 Medic and a CGC - Canine Good Citizen Evaluator with the AKC. I am an approved Evaluator of Service Dogs with FSDS, Inc.
Middle Tennessee residents no longer must live with the problem pet. I will help transform your bad dog into your best dog!
I currently am accepting applications for a few young service dogs in training that are available for sale.
Upon approval of the application, I will finish out their training according to your specific needs and complete the required registration for your new service dog.
I also offer Pet Photography services.
Please contact me if I can be of any assistance.
