Michael Carmona, M.S.
Mr. Carmona has a Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis, and is a Certified Dog Trainer. While in graduate school, Mr. Carmona worked as a certified Senior Pet Training Instructor at Petsmart, an accredited Dog Trainer at Petco, a Dog Trainer and Behavior Specialist at Heavenly Pet Resort, K9-Loft, and private contracting for many veterinarians, groomers, and boarding facilities.
As part of Mr. Carmona's graduate program at CSULA, he conducted behavior modification services to the human population. During this time, Mr. Carmona realized 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. Mr. Carmona felt that these well-validated practices used to help humans exhibiting behavior problems offered a rich and robust set of procedures and solutions for dogs with behavior problems.
Learning that behavior analysis provided a humane ethic from which to understand, predict and change dog behavior, Mr. Carmona decided to devote his life to helping canine owners with behavioral problems and founded Master Dog Training. Mr. Carmona believes in teaching dog owners about their dog's natural drives and how to work with them opposed to working against them for a harmonious relationship.
