I contacted Mike Dixon when I was just about at the end of my rope with my two terriers. One of them was attached to me at the hip and had severe separation anxiety and the other was aggressive and had bitten me on several occasions. When Mike stepped into my home, I noticed an immediate submission from my dogs. They respected him at first sight. Within the first 15 minutes of meeting my small aggressive terrier, Mike had already asked enough questions regarding behavior to pinpoint that the aggression was due to a urinary tract infection that my dog had had for quite some time. He suggested a great vet for us to take him to and soon after, Bo was a different dog. He was playing, he wagged his tail, he felt better. In addition, Mike worked with Bo regarding other small issues such as barking and crate issues. The bond between Bo and I is stronger than it has ever been. He’s a happy dog and he knows I am the Alpha between us two. I have had Bo for 6 years and have never seen him as happy as he is now after working with him and Mike.
As far as my terrier with separation anxiety, Mike had given me several rules to follow in order to help my dog become more independent. After following these rules, my dog has finally been able to relax more and think for himself.
I highly recommend Mike as a trainer. He is still there for us any time we have questions.
