Mike Kunzelman - Owner & Trainer
Professional Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals
AKC CGC Evaluator
Certified Dog Obedience Trainer/Instructor - Penn Foster
“I started working with dogs in the late 1980s, when I got my first German shepherd in Germany. Not having any experience with training dogs, I went to a club looking for someone that could train my pup. They told me, ‘That is not how it works. You have to train your own dog.’ Before I knew it, I was in the scratch suit and bite arm, training dogs for protection work and out watching others lay the tracks for their pups to follow, then on to competitions as a hobby. Training at the club lasted about 10 years before I came back State side, where the only work I did with pups was my own, until I changed my professions. I started training dogs professionally in 2019 and love every minute of it.”
Kelly James - Trainer
“I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2018 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Health Services and a minor in Business Management, which focuses on alternative methods of care, as well as ethical distribution of healthcare in the system. My passion, however, has always been working with animals. My focus has primarily been among the equine realm, but the basic fundamentals of horse training translates very well to dogs. I started training full-time in early 2019 and quickly adjusted to the effective techniques used in obedience and behavioral modification. I love these four-legged creatures, and find fulfillment and peace in helping both dogs and their owners live better lives together.”
Megan Longrie - Office Manager/Trainer
"My passion for dogs started the second I met Hunter, my first dog. The desire to follow a career path in training dogs was when I fostered Data, a Merle Phantom Poodle. Seeing Data (and other wonderful pups) grow into his roll as a service dog is what has inspired me to work into this area of expertise. My primary responsibility (at T.C.C.) is to manage the office and ensure smooth operation. Currently I am working on my Penn Foster Dog Obedience Instructor certificate and hope to have my AKC evaluator certification next year."
Caleb Murley - Multimedia/IT/Trainer
"I worked as a professional Videographer/Photographer for over 5 years, But back in 2017 I started working for a dog training facility as the creative director. During my time there I fostered a service dog for about a year which peaked my interest even more on how to train dogs. My primary role at TCC is Multimedia, Social media, Advertising, and Customer Relations. Soon I hope to have my certificate for Penn Foster to become a certified dog trainer."
