The true cost of training is a dog's life.

Before you or your friends are seduced by guarantees, impressed by slick marketing, or awed by 'special equipment', remember that effective training relies upon the trainer or behaviorist's knowledge and application of behavior science.

There are two main approaches: education and coercion. Some professionals adhere solely to one approach. Many trainers mix and match techniques from both schools of thought. http://www.mishamayfoundation.org/dominance.pdf

Misha May utilizes only educational methods, and will only recommend others who do so.

Misha May receives entirely too many calls from owners who have spent large amounts of money on training and now they have lost hope. Sometimes the training is simply ineffective, but tragically, through coercive measures or lack of knowledge, the dogs's behavior is now worse or even aggressive.

These owners now want to give up their pet. Misha May is committed to helping families keep their pets. Contact us before you spend your money or lose hope.

Contact us FIRST for training,
so you won't need us later for rescue!
