About Our Trainer:


Michael Carmona Jr. is a master degree holding behavior analyst, certified dog trainer, and AKC CGC Evaluator.

While in graduate school, Michael worked as a pet training instructor at Petsmart and Petco. After graduating from CSULA, he worked as a behavior consultant with California PsychCare conducting behavior modification services for humans with severe problem behaviors.

Michael ultimately decided to cross completely over to the world of canines as he discovered that many of the behavior-change techniques used by behavior analysts were universally applicable across species, as were the scientific principles on which those techniques were based. Michael also realized that these well-validated practices used to support humans exhibiting behavior problems offered a rich and robust set of procedures and solutions for dogs with behavior problems. He found that behavior analysis provided a humane ethic from which to understand, predict and change dog behavior.

Michael conducts business as Master Dog Training and has provided dog training services for various pet stores, groomers, rescue groups, veterinarians, boarding facilities, and private clients accross the San Gabriel Valley, CA, U.S.A.
