For anyone new to the forum I would like to tell you why I think Mike is one of the best dog trainers out there. I have been training dogs for years and have encountered many different trainers of which 99% are closed minded. They learned one way and they think that is the only way and won’t even attempt to look at any other alternatives that might even be better for the dog. This was Mike’s last sentence to my reply:
“Feel free to share your thoughts since the method is made to evolve with anything that works better and remains as respectful and fair as possible to the dog.”
That says it all right there. As much as Mike knows, he still understands that there could be better ways for the “dog” to learn. Mike’s ego is left completely out of the situation because it is all about the dog and their quality of life, the way it should be. If trainers would spend less time arguing and more time finding out what works best for dogs, the world would be a much better place.
Out of all of the top dog trainers including Caesar Millan, I respect Mike D’Abruzzo the most.
