Edel Miedes was born in Cuba to a life-long animal rescuer and advocate his mother. He started training dogs professionally in the early 1990’s and has developed into South Florida’s Premier Severe Behavior Dog Trainer and Behaviorist. He is a graduate of Florida International University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology with his primary focus being canine behavior assessments and modifications. He is trained in all levels of obedience, from basic to off leash, K9 protection training, from family protection to Police K9 work, and severe dog behavior problem solving. He spent 10 years in the financial services sector gaining business experience and financial stability.

He followed his dream of founding his own dog training company based on his training principles and methods. Today, his company, K9ADVISORS is well known in South Florida, especially within the dog rescue community, for resolving many different dog behavior problems for many families and for helping many “un-adoptable” dogs in rescue groups be adopted out to good, loving homes.
