Michael Dobson (born 9 April 1981, Isleworth, London) is an English former professional footballer.

Dobson came through the youth ranks at Brentford, a club whom his father George had played for, and spent six years at the club, including a couple of years as club captain. One of the highlights of his time at Griffin Park was scoring the opening goal in the 2001 LDV Vans Trophy Final against Port Vale at the Millennium Stadium. Vale went on to win the match 2-1. He joined Reading on loan in the 2005-06 season. At the end of the season, Dobson was released by Brentford and subsequently signed for Walsall on 6 June 2006. He was released by the Saddlers on May 7, 2008. Dobson retired from football following advice from a specialist due to a succession of knee injuries.

One of Dobson's strengths is his versatility. He can play at right back, central midfield, and central defence if required.

Dobson now runs his own business called Flexercise, specialising in personal training and sports massaging therapy.
