Mike is the guy you want standing next to you if an angry dog was charging your way. He has successfully trained hundreds of dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes, in a variety of contexts. He has a wealth of experience training household dogs, from puppies needing to get off on the right foot, to the smaller breed with submissive urination, to the large adult dog with serious aggression problems. He has also trained protection dogs, police dogs, competition dogs, and other “professional” canines.
Most recently Mike took on a rescued Pit-bull puppy to train her to smell out peanuts and peanut products for a family with a child that has severe peanut allergies. Identified new concept Luxury Pet Facility with every element (Boarding-Grooming-Training-Vet Hospital) under one roof and became business partners with NFL Legend LaDainian Tomlinson (LT)
San Diego loves Absolute K-9 Training. Mr. Stone was asked by KCBQ to start his own radio show giving the listening audience help with their pets via the airwaves. The program has grown into a two-man show with both Mike Stone and Dr. John Boyd of Pacific Pet Care in Delmar. The radio show is called “Pets and Vets” airs Saturdays on KCBQ 1170AM. Mike also works closely with local radio host Rick Roberts of KFMB 760. Rick has Mike train his shepherd and frequently has him on his show to talk dog training. From Ryan Klesko of the Padres to Charger’s MVP LaDainian Tomlinson, Mike has earned a reputation in San Diego for being not only the best dog trainer but also the most responsible and helpful.

Q. What is “Schutzhund?”
A. One of the toughest training feats in the world!
One of Mike’s greatest accomplishments is successfully training the first-ever female American Bulldog, Moxie, in the history of the breed to a Schutzhund three title. For those that do not know about Schutzhund training or the amount of hard work that must go into it, please see our Schutzhund page. Currently, Mike is training Moxie’s daughter, Alabama, in Schutzhund and hopes to take her to the same top level earned by her mother. Mike is also currently helping other dog hobbyists reach their goals in the sport of Schutzhund with their dogs.
