Certified Dog Trainer, Mike Harvey can provide you with all the training you need, from basic house training for puppies to clearing up adult dog behavioral issues that may have gone on for years. Here are some common dog issues that are addressed at training:

Aggression and Anxiety

Dogs are not born with aggression and anxiety. 80% of these issues are caused by insecurity and fear. It is developed over time due to lack of leadership and communication. When we see a dog in distress we as humans tend to go into nurturing mode.

We try to reassure them by saying “it’s ok” and petting them to calm down. What your actually communicating is its ok to think that way and inadvertently praising them for thinking in that manner.

These problems can be solved through dog obedience training. If your dog reacts aggressively in the presence of people or other dogs obedience commands will “override” his or hers thought process. When you achieve this level of control your not only becoming a leader in your dog eyes but you also building confidence through success.

K9 Coach encourages you to take advantage of our free consultation. Talk is cheap. Seeing is believing! Let us show you what our training programs can do for your dog aggressive issues.



Is your dog jumping up? Running away? Pulling on leash so bad that your pet is walking you around the neighborhood? Then K9 Coach Dog Training can help.

Hyperactive dogs are in a sense high drive dogs. That high drive made them the ultimate working dogs. In our present day these dogs have become companion dogs and members of our family. Without a “job” or a way to expend that drive your dogs energy can manifest into unwanted behaviors.

Exercise is an important part of lowering your dogs energy level, but physical exercise alone doesn’t always solve the problem. Dog obedience training has a better impact on lowering your dog’s mental energy. It teaches your dog boundaries and self control. It also provides you a better relationship with your dog that is not based on screaming, yelling and frustration. Having control of your dog will give you the ability to take your dog anywhere and spend more time with the family and not at home.


Puppy Development & Housebreaking

Puppies that are from the ages of 8 to 16 weeks might not be ready for formal obedience training but should be taught rules upon arriving in their new home.

Teaching your new pup things like:

  • How to establish a consistent housebreaking schedule.
  • What to chew on and what not to chew on. (Play biting)
  • How to prepare them for future vet examinations and proper socialization.

Feel free to contact us if you are in the Sarasota area for fees and scheduling.
