Serving northern and central Delaware from Wilmington to Dover.
Regional Training Director - Michael Wendel, CDBA
Michael Wendel, CDBA, is the Director of Training for Canine Dimensions’ Delaware Valley Region (State of Delaware, Chester County, PA and Delaware County, PA).
After more than 20 years in the private sector, and years of volunteering at local shelters, Michael decided to devote his full time efforts to a position as a Certified Dog Trainer for Canine Dimensions. Since he was young, Michael has been a dog lover and has personally rescued numerous dogs during the past 15 years and taken them into his home. With training, time and patience all of them have become a part of his family.
Michael still finds time to volunteer at local animal shelters training dogs so that they improve their behavior and increase the likelihood for adoption. Over the years, he has developed a reputation for being able to transform the toughest "project" dogs into polite, well-mannered companions.
Michael maintains that "Being a dog trainer is not just about the dogs, it’s about teaching owners the methods to communicate with their dogs. This helps them become well adjusted family members. Working with families and dogs is great fun! It never ceases to amaze me the happiness that well-trained dogs bring to people. With all the training methods out there, I’ve tried a number of different approaches over the years. I have found that the Canine Dimensions training program gives the best results, by far. It is grounded in Cynopraxic (dog friendly) methodologies, so it works with all ages and breeds."
Michael is recognized by both of the nation’s most prestigious dog training associations: the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the International Association of Canine Professionals. He is also certified by the American Kennel Club as a CGC evaluator.
