MOC (Making Outstanding Canines) Training is one of Colorado's top dog training services.
Owned and operated by military veteran Adam Deaver. Based in Castle Rock, MOC K-9 focus on Customized Training Plan to ensure that owners and their dogs have better communication, an improved relationship and a better quality of life.
Our training takes place at our Training Facility and we ensure that owners understand how to utilize our training properly to ensure the most effective, and long-term results.
I’ve always had a love for dogs, and dedicated my adult life to help others get the most out of their dogs / K9 Partners. In November 2021 I graduated from NePoPo® sliver school and following that graduated from NePoPo® gold school in April 2022. My goal is to help everyone benefit from the skills that proper, effective training can have on a dog. I work alongside my team and K9’s Maverick, Grimm, and Copper.
I am also the owner of Echo K9 group. Where we provide narcotics, explosives, and firearms detection solutions for a vast array of situations.
Mitch has 3 passions that are his whole life and love: his family, dogs, and teaching.
His love for teaching is rooted in 15 years of professional ballroom and Latin dancing and instruction. During that time he was consistently in the top 10% of dance instructors in the U.S. with his students. In his professional dancing he had multiple podium finishes around the world throughout his career and won a world championship in 2010 in Germany.
Dogs have always been a big part of Mitch’s life but he started working more seriously with dogs when he began training his first service dog Clark in 2014.
The psychology of learning and behavior has been an interest for Mitch since he majored in psychology at CSU. He enjoys not only the training and coaching of dogs and people, but the physical and mental health that dogs and the relationships we build with them give to us. He believes that in order to train and build a better bond with our dogs, we must first look at ourselves.
Mitch is happy to be part of the MOC team and works alongside his K9 partner and service dog Abari.
WHAT WE DO
We are Balanced / Science Based Trainers. We use proven science and phycology like Classical Conditioning (Pavlov) which is learning through associations and we use Operant Conditioning (B.F Skinner) which is learning through consequences both good or bad. We believe dog training is about balance and that balance is there to create clarity for the dog, owners, and families.
