Mitch is the owner and head trainer of Christian K-9. He also serves as the president of German Shepherd Rescue Ohio which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue. Mitch has been training dogs since his teenage years starting with his family’s pets as a hobby. He is also a Marine Corps veteran which is where his career in dog training sparked from. During his time in the Marines, Mitch got to witness first hand the capabilities of the Marine Corps working dog teams. Although he was not a handler he was often at the kennels with his friends learning how to train dogs. At the end of his active duty service Mitch worked as an engineering technician for Honda and Battelle for a few years. He attended THE Ohio State University and soon realized the engineering industry and school wasn’t for him. He decided he wanted to follow his passion in dogs and attended a world renowned dog training school, Highland Canine school for dog trainers, where he became a certified pet, military & police k9 instructor/trainer. He currently assist in training and decoying for police departments all over region. 

We love people just as much as dogs and promise to give you the best experience possible with training your dog. We may be a small company but we have invested thousands of dollars into our education and attended one of the best dog training schools in the world, Highland K9. We operate out of our 5 acre property in Galloway, Ohio and have served people from all over the east coast. 

We feel dog owners should have a place they can trust to train their dog that provides safety, comfort of a home, and the best methods possible backed by science. It can be scary when trusting someone to train your dog for a couple weeks and not knowing the best methods to use. We would love if you stopped by to meet us just give us a call! We will answer any questions or concerns you may have. Please check out our website and reviews, feel free to reach out to past clients and ask about their experience too! Our business is built on the foundation of honesty, quality, and the love for our clients and their dogs. If we can’t fix the problems with your dog or meet your expectations we will refuse to take your money.

“Passionate. Patient. Honest. Dog-lover. These are just a few of the characteristics that describe me. I know each animal is different and I will work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. More importantly the guidance you need as well. Whether you’re thinking about getting a dog, or already own a dog with behavioral problems; I’m here to help you get started on the path to success and truly enjoy a well mannered dog. I treat every dog as if he were my own. All training is guaranteed to meet your expectations; if it doesn’t, I will continue working with you until you are satisfied, free of charge. I love this job and would do it for free as I have before and still sometimes do. My main goal is to help people have a better relationship with their dogs and to keep dogs out of shelters, and that is the ultimate payment.”
