Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers

The Michael Ellis System of Dog Training


Michael Ellis

Michael Ellis explaining his philosophy of dog training

If you are considering our school, and would like more detailed information on our approach to training dogs, watch this video from one of Michael's lectures: Philosophy on Dog Training.

We also have video of opening lectures for some of the protection courses. As time goes on we will have opening lectures that explain the course for every course. You can find these in the section on COURSE OUTLINES.
