Thriving and Heartfelt Service Dog Training Business Birthed from the Ashes of Life-Changing Medical Adversities

By: Get News

Colorado Springs, CO – Business owner, Mikayla Bass, overcame her own medical struggles and now leads the pack through Charmed Dog Training, along with the well-respected breeding branch of Charmed Golden Retrievers. Charmed Dogs not only help clients strengthen their relationship with their dogs and conquers obedience issues, but can also help at a much higher level if there is a need for a service dog.

Charmed Dogs is family-owned and was born from a determined woman’s love for animals and passion for helping those in need. As the owner of Charmed Dogs, Mikayla Bass’ primary desire for her business is to use the life-changing adversities she has experienced to provide high-level service dogs to the disabled community.


The story of Charmed Dogs is an inspirational one, to say the least. After receiving a concussion as a college athlete in 2014, Mikayla was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a rare, life-threatening neuromuscular disorder that caused a communication gap between her muscles and nerves. This means she couldn’t voluntarily lift a finger, or open an eyelid, and sometimes she was unable to swallow. Although this was a dreadful time, Mikayla drew strength from her God-given fighting spirit as a college athlete and her academic over-achievement. She also leaned heavily on God, her family, her community, and her beautiful service dog, Ava.

Mikayla was assisted by Ava in her day-to-day tasks like turning the lights on and off, opening and closing doors, fetching objects, and more. Ava could also call 911 with her doggie phone in case of a severe emergency. In the meantime, Mikayla’s mom, Kelly, researched daily to move Mikayla from incurable to a miracle. The research led her to a life-changing doctor in New Mexico that performed neurological acupuncture, and from that point forward Mikayla was set out on a path of healing. She is now considered to be a miracle by her neurologist! It was her now-retired service dog, Ava, that inspired the idea of creating a business to help disabled people with service dogs. From the ashes of medical adversity, Mikayla rose above all odds and adversities to heal herself and now strives to help others through her heartfelt passion, Charmed Dogs.


Now a leading dog training business, Charmed Dogs is helping many with their specific dog training needs and specializes in high-level Service Dog Training. Charmed Dogs is well-equipped with the required knowledge to identify and address obedience problems associated with dogs of all breeds and personalities. This remarkable company also holds expertise in advanced obedience, puppy training, and trick training.

Charmed Dog’s training results-based programs lead to an improved relationship between the owner and the dog. These services ease the tension between the dog and the owner, as well as other dogs, allowing the dogs to socialize and be included in every aspect of their owner’s lives possible.

The results-based obedience training which serves as the starting point for general pet owners as well as service dog clients focuses on basic commands. This program educates owners on the teaching methods and tactics necessary to help their dogs reach their full potential quickly as well as lays the foundation for advanced commands.


Finally, through their ultimate breeding program specially designed to provide high-quality service dog candidates, Charmed Golden Retrievers, is filling the gap for those with special needs. Charmed Golden Retrievers has invested in a well-bred program, focused on raising puppies inside and socializing them from day one until they leave for their new families. The goal is to not only better the golden retriever breed, but also provide loving, healthy companions and working dogs for our client families.

Charmed Golden Retrievers are valuable service team members (service dog/handler), sport dogs, and family members. It is clearly Charmed Golden Retrievers’ mission to provide happy, healthy puppies for high-quality needs.

Jill Wiser, a client of the company, shared her experience – “Best Dog Trainers Ever! We had Lucy trained with Charmed Dogs and we were absolutely blown away by the difference in her after they worked their magic. Lucy struggled a lot with walking nicely on a leash and jumping on strangers. We were so excited to finally be able to enjoy our walks with her and she is so much better about greeting strangers! Our favorite command is definitely the place command, where they taught Lucy to remain calm on a specific place in our home. We use it all the time now, especially when others come to visit or we are eating dinner. Our home is much more peaceful after training. We are so thankful to the whole Charmed Dog crew, they treated Lucy like part of their family and we will always use them in the future!” said Ms. Wiser.
