Mike wanted to empower everyday dog owners with his life’s work using the same training methods and strategy of care he vetted with high-level working dogs. Mike built an easily accessible and practical online training program called TeamDog.Pet — a training program based on his best selling book, “Team Dog; Train the Navy SEAL Way.” Team Dog has successfully helped tens of thousands of family dog owners train their way to a better dog. The program features hours of training videos that span from puppies to working dogs and from “sit” to K9 CPR & First Aid.
Through Trikos International, the Warrior Dog Foundation, and consulting with tens of thousands of subscribers via online dog training, Mike has established foundational principles that are essential for all dogs to operate at their optimum level of performance and health. After 20 years of experience, he began creating products born from the battlefield, not the boardroom. From his training methods and gear found in the Mike Ritland Co Store, to his Fueled and Trained by Dog Food and Treats, Mike is giving you the tools needed to provide your dog with an active and fulfilling life.
As a former Navy SEAL & K9 Trainer, New York Times Bestselling author, expert speaker on K9 applications, and host of the raw & unfiltered podcast, “Mike Drop,” Mike is dedicating his life to the health and well being of all dogs, no matter the breed, size, age or health as well as giving every dog owner the resources needed to be their dog’s hero.
