(Yes, you read it correctly! We have a dog trainer named Mike Vick. But don’t worry, ours is the original and absolutely loves dogs!)
Dee enjoyed mentoring Mike so much that she hired him in December of 2010. Mike is third generation farmer originally from Miami, but after a long career in agriculture and tree farming, he wanted to follow his heart and do what he is most passionate about… working with dogs and people. Yet despite all the dogs and owners he’s helped, he still feels that his greatest accomplishment is raising his three, now grown children as a single dad, and who are his entire universe.
When he’s not training dogs he enjoys to scuba diving, fishing, and other outdoor activities. He is also a licensed pilot and US Army veteran. Mike currently has a Chihuahua named Buddy and a cat named Miss Kitty.
“I enjoy working with all dogs and puppies, but I have a special place in my heart for dogs who are fearful and anxious and need help working through their fear issues. I love to watch them go from nervous and scared to relaxed, confident and more secure in their relationships with other dogs and people.”
