Testimonial from a local Veterinarian:
Mike Dixon is an excellent and professional trainer. His interaction with the dog’s and owners is superb and his skills are innovative and cutting edge. I personally use him to train my aggressive dog. Mike spent a few hours working with the dog aggressive issues and by the end of just one session; I was able to walk my dog with no pulling, lunging or showing aggression toward other dogs. By training with Mike Dixon and Tri-State Canine Obedience you will receive skilled and compassionate training. I exclusively recommend Mike Dixon and Tri-State Canine Obedience to all of my clients.
