About Your Trainer. Former Police K9 Officer turned Dog Trainer & Behaviorist, Michael Peer had found his "calling" when he created dOgbedience (short for Dog Obedience) in 2011. Around that time, he had rescued a 4 month old Rottweiler who was battling Addisson's Disease (Auto Immune Disease); Rogue became his inspiration in helping other dogs and their families. He eventually became Michael's Dog Training Assistant by bringing him to client's homes with dog to dog aggression issues, where Rogue spoke the language of dogs and interpreted it for him: Sadly, he passed away from Addison's disease at age 7.
Ofc Michael Peer is a graduate of Police K-9 Dog Training School and was Certified for Narcotics Detection-by the USPCA. He and his K-9 Police partner of 8 years, Lazer, received recognition and medals for their outstanding police work. He left the K9 Unit when his K9 partner (Lazer) passed away but has continued to work as a patrol officer up to this present time. He is a graduate of Michigan State University with a B.A. Degree from the School of Social Work.

PROVEN TECHNIQUE, PROVEN RESULTS
Along with voice commands, you will learn hand signals that open up new horizons in dog training; as well as, distance control by voice and hand. With my proven techniques, you'll be taught correct posture, positioning, voice inflection, praise and reward. My dog training program is customized to your own personal experience along with your dog's current obedience level--you and your dog can progress at your own pace without limitation unlike that of group classes. Since all of my classes are private sessions, it offers an opportunity for your family members to train together with your dog, including children (if any).
EFFECTIVE LEADER-FOLLOWER ROLE
Unlike other Dog Trainers who offer various titles and classes that can be confusing to dog owners, as your Dog Trainer my focus is to help shape your dog's obedience and behavior as a whole, and to help you achieve a Leader-follower relationship. I also incorporate Dog Park Mentoring & Agility Training in my dog training program, to help instill in dogs the Leader-follower relationship between human and dog in a fun way.
Are you considering Hiring a Dog Trainer who uses an E-Collar, Prong Collar or SHOCK Collar to train your dog?
If so, you may be misled that it's "the way" to train your dog. In fact, using an e-collar or prong collar as the primary tool to train a dog should never be the default choice of any dog owner. Training dogs using punishment stimuli may be a quick fix but is not the right fix in the long run. I have helped many dogs be released from the confines of E-Collars, Shock and Prong Collars implemented by other dog trainers, by using good old-fashioned collars instead. Your dog will feel and know the difference and will result in your dog feeling less anxious.
