Winner of the 2014 Master Dog Breeders and Associates Canine Trainer of the Year Award, The Dogfather Dog Training provides a natural approach beyond just dog training. We do not use treats for tricks, just training rewarded with something we all seek - praise, love and affection. As a Dog Trainer and Animal Behaviourist, Michael covers everything from from the dog's point of view. We work with any breed, with any issue - we don't discriminate.

We are sharing our lifestyle with our dogs.

Our methods are all about education in the skills of "effective leadership" and "creating calm" to take owners beyond the realm of pack leader, and into the realm of dog parent. We demonstrate and train "obedience for life" through our four-step process, which educates owners and teaches dogs to fit into society. We don't do one off sessions – it doesn't work!

“What I do is train dogs; what we share is your journey. It’s about creating the dog you desire!” Michael, TDF.
