Regional Dog Trainer, Mike Obalde, CDBA
“Provide your dog with positive, strong leadership and you will be amazed at what the two of you can achieve,” says Mike, whose experience with unruly dogs began when he was growing up with his Bloodhound, Ralph. “I remember Ralph following his nose and pulling me through the woods. Like many families, we put up his nuisance barking, jumping and pulling because we didn’t have the right knowledge or techniques.”
When Diggs, his English Bulldog, began displaying dominant, aggressive behaviors, Mike and his wife, Jerri, began looking for a way to change her behavior. After so-called “purely positive” and old school dominance-based dog training methods failed, Mike began a deeper study of how dogs learn. Drawing from his experience leading Marines and working with difficult horses, Mike began a training regimen that built upon the basic commands to provide structure for Diggs.
Years later, after discovering Canine Dimensions and its balanced dog training philosophy, Mike chose to leave his career leading high-visibility projects to become a Canine Dimensions certified dog trainer and help people build a stronger bond with their dogs. “Many people become frustrated because they catch bits of information from books and television, and those pieces of advice may not be a fit for their dog. The Canine Dimensions program is unique, in that it not only solves dog behavior problems but it also enhances the bond between dog and owner.”
