We just finished a six-session package with All Canines and I can honestly say that it was life changing for my family! Emily and Mike work like a well-oiled machine and made the whole process as easy on us as possible. From the very beginning, Emily took care of the organization of our sessions and communicated with us all along the way through their company’s portal (which is very user-friendly). Once our schedule was set and payment plan was determined, Mike came to our home for each hour-long session right on time and with all the supplies he needed for the session. He was always respectful of our home, our dogs, and our family and never once rushed out the door to leave when the hour was up. In fact, he stayed late every single session, making sure to answer all the questions we had before leaving. We have two rescue dogs, both with very different personalities and needs, and Mike was able to genuinely tap into what motivates them and what we could do to train them as efficiently as possible. He was patient with all of our dogs ‘problem behaviors’ and never once made us feel ashamed for the lack of training our dogs clearly showed. On the contrary, Mike helped us feel empowered to continue our training after each session and he was always available to answer any questions we sent to him in between sessions. Whether in person or through messages, he explained everything in a very clear way that just helped things to ‘click’ for us. Plus, his approach with our dogs was always reinforcement-oriented, which we really appreciated. It was easy for us to engage with the training because it all revolved around what motivated our dogs and what was feasible for us as dog-owners. It honestly even made our training experience fun and something we looked forward to because we felt confident about being able to do the actual training, and we enjoyed the bonding experience it provided for us and our dogs. The progress we have made in regards to communicating with our dogs, reading their body language and understanding their needs, as well as, the progress our dogs have made with learning commands has been astounding. Needless to say, we are grateful for all of the support and guidance from All Canines and we will be booking more training sessions in the future! Less

Can't recommend All Canines enough! We worked with a trainer from a different company when we first got our puppy and had a mixed experience with his approach. Mike and the team at All Canines couldn't have been more different. From day one it was a positive experience, and our pup has progressed by leaps and bounds after just a few months of work. Our dog Frankie has always been an anxious guy and it only got worse in the pandemic. Lockdown in Brooklyn and then a move to Philadelphia, got him really anxious around strangers and very territorial around the house and yard. Mike's style of positive reinforcement has helped him immensely--we've been able to have people in our apartment and introduce him to them without fear of a bite or other calamity. I'm not going to lie...its been a lot of work outside of the sessions themselves, but Mike gives you the tools to communicate effectively with your dog in a way that I didn't realize was going to be possible. Frankie doesn't react on walks the way he used to, has now had several positive interactions in the house and yard with strangers, and we can't wait to see how he progresses even more in the coming months and years ahead thanks to the lessons we've learned from All Canines!

I cannot even begin to say enough good things about this company. We have an absolutely beyond tough husky puppy (whom we love) that we needed help with.

I cannot even begin to say enough good things about this company. We have an absolutely beyond tough husky puppy (whom we love) that we needed help with. I found this company through another website and really liked the idea of supporting a U.S. Veteran. Mike, Jennifer, and Emily are incredible. They are quick to respond, they do not make you feel pressured in any way, are there to help with any questions at all times of the day, and are super professional. From the moment we met them, we knew that they knew what they were doing. They helped us in so many ways. Jennifer researched huskies in particular and helped us with problems specific to this breed. She never gave up and would stay at training sessions longer than contracted when she witnessed certain behaviors so that she could work with our puppy in that moment and see what worked best to correct the problems. Even though our dog has finished her sessions, we still hear from them to see how things are progressing. You will never be disappointed with this company. I truly feel that they are a part of our family. Less

Wonderful experience. Mike is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He didn’t mind answering tons of questions we had about our puppy. Although we still have a long way to go before Fergus can be considered well-trained, Mike’s help has definitely contributed to our puppy’s improved behavior. We would definitely recommend All Canines to anyone seeking dog training. Thanks so much Mike!

All Canines made a dream of ours become a reality. The process of getting a puppy and training him was intimidating. Knowing we could rely on such knowledgeable and trustworthy people for the 4-week board and train program gave us the confidence we needed, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Our puppy Smoky came back to us potty trained at 11 weeks! We loved the fact that our program came with 4 follow up lessons included to reinforce the principles learned at the board and train and to continue to progress with learning new things. A puppy was out of reach for us with our busy work schedules, but All Canines came through and had our backs. Mike and Emily are the best. Smoky looks forward to a lifelong relationship with them as we learn new things but more importantly have so much fun. Less

We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Mike & Emily. Our new rescue Olive was a puppy mill breeding mom who spent her first 6 years of life in a crate. We just finished 3 sessions with Mike where he’s been helping us better understand Olive’s behavior, building truest, giving us the tools we need to help her gain confidence and learn what it means to be a loved, happy dog! Mike’s approach is my favorite part. He really cares about the well-being of the dog and with Olive’s past and her shy nature that insight was really the most helpful. Mike and Emily are also super responsive and their portal for messaging, scheduling and reminders was great! HIGHLY recommend them! Less

I can only recommend All Canines for training. Our Georgie needed a little help (or us, parents, needed help!) and All Canines gave us all the tools to achieve proper training.

Mike helped greatly with training our puppy during the 3 month to 6 month age range. Mike is very knowledgable and passionate about what he does and it shows during the training sessions. Would highly recommend for puppy training or any age dog for that matter. Thanks again Mike!

Mike is a gem. My daughter and I were lucky to have met him at an event in Manayunk. We took his business card as we had a new puppy at home. We purchased a three session package and Mike was able to come to our home for the training which was very convenient. We learned so many valuable tools for help with issues that we were having trouble with such as how to reduce leash pulling, how to discourage barking, and which dog treats were best and many other helpful tips. One thing in particular is really worth mentioning. I was struggling on my daily walks with my dog due to her stopping snd eating twigs, chasing squirrels and birds and lying down and not moving along. Mike gave me a whole different perspective on how to approach the daily walks and make them more enjoyable. The next day after our session, I used some of the tips that Mike suggested and it was like I I was looking at the walk from a completely different perspective . I was much more present in the moment and felt more calm and engaged on the walk. It was so helpful. I am continuing to work with Mike as life is always changing and new situations arise. You will not be sorry if you hire Mike. He would never make you feel like any question is unimportant and you will get valuable tips to improve your dog’s behavior and how you react to it. Less

Michael explained to us ways to help our foster dog become more comfortable with us - it was great advice - all with a positive reinforcement.

Mike came on a recommendation of a co-worker. A German Shepherd that I pet sit was constantly barking inside & fence fighting outside. Mike showed us new games to play in the yard with treats and how to manage her inside. It was a challenge to turn this dog around; so thanks to Mike and his expertise for keeping the peace. Reach out and consult with him for your problem Furkid.

** this is a 10 star review ** Mike has to be the BEST dog trainer EVER. My boyfriend and I rescued a 6-7 month old deaf border collie/brown lab mix puppy from Philly Rescue Angels… never having a deaf puppy before, we had no clue how to train or communicate with him….. Mike came to our house for the training sessions. Very personal, kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. He was teaching us how to communicate with Noah using our hands. We taught us how to hand target, lay down, sit, and paw. After our first training session with Mike, Noah was a pro at all these things Mike taught us in the first training session… our second session he was teaching us stay, walking on a leash, and how to get his attention while walking with him on leash….. we’re still working on stay and house training…. But Noah seems to be improving with both…. I can’t thank Mike enough for everything he’s done for us in the first two training sessions….always allowing us to text or call him with any questions or tips we need help with…. I highly recommend mike to anyone who needs help with training their dogs… We can’t wait to work with Mike in the future! Less

Working with Mike has been an absolute pleasure! He has helped us socialize our pandemic puppy. We recently got another puppy as well and he was instrumental in helping us social both dogs together to create a positive environment for not only us but for our dogs. Mike is absolutely wonderful to work with, we highly recommend him and his services.

Mike was awesome to work with. His approach makes everything a game and my dog loved it! He provided plenty of resources so that I felt comfortable keeping up with training outside of the sessions. I saw improvements in my dog's behavior much faster than I expected.

As a first time puppy owner, I quickly realized that I needed to find a dog trainer to help answer my countless questions and concerns about raising my pup, Leo. I am so thankful I found Mike. Not only is Mike super knowledgeable about dogs and positive reinforcement training, he is also very patient and empathetic with both Leo and me. Mike listens and responds with thorough information 100% of the time, and he never makes me feel like my questions/concerns are silly. Mike provides straightforward training techniques/tips and solutions to common training issues, and he always goes the extra mile to ensure his clients are successful and happy. As a result of Mike’s guidance, Leo has become a more confident and better behaved pup. I feel empowered to continue advancing Leo’s training by using the positive reinforcement techniques that Mike has taught me. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a kind, knowledgeable, and truly genuine dog trainer! Less

Michael always takes incredible care of my pup, Richard. Michael has watched Richard on multiple occasions and is always super responsive and flexible with my (sometimes unreliable) schedule. Every time I drop Richard off for a day of dog-sitting, his ears perk up with excitement and he sprints to Michaels door and when I go to pick him up at the end of the day, he’s always exhausted from all the walks they go on. Michael has also helped to work with Richard on his basic commands while dog-sitting. Not only is my dog happy and safe, he’s also better trained. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Less

Michael is not just great with dogs, but he is also incredibly reliable, helpful, and professional! I have been utilizing his services for 2 years now and have lost track of how many times he has come to the rescue for my dog Kasey. I would highly recommend him!!!
