Jessica was a miracle worker with our pomsky Miney. She came and picked her up and spent the next 10 days training her. Miney has come home a completely different dog. Jessica is an animal expert like I've never seen before. She has an ability to tap into exactly what the dog and the owner needs to have a successful training experience. When she brought Miney back she gave me an extensive worksheet on everything about my dog and a complete breakdown of everything I need to do to insure that her training continues successfully at home. I'm completely blown away and would highly recommend Jessica to anyone with any dog training or boarding needs. I cannot thank her enough for all of her help with Miney!

We were having some trouble with our dog Dooley (Miniature Schnauzer). He, in the past had shown signs of aggression towards people (mainly small children). I found Beth through an online search and we had arranged an in-home visit. I am a strong believer in ‘Positive Dog Training’ and it was evident that Beth was more than qualified. Beth was very knowledgeable and caring towards Dooley. Her patients with us was extremely helpful. After working with Beth and reading her book we have been able to build up Dooley’s confidence and better understand his needs through being more aware of his signs of stress or discomfort. We have not had a problem with him since. My wife, Dooley and I would recommend Beth! Thank you Beth, Bryan C.

Had a great experience with Paws Around Motown. They took very good care of my dog at home while I was away for a long weekend! Would recommend them and plan on using them again. Thanks for the love you gave her!

We have just begun puppy training but came away knowing this was a very positive experience for both the dogs and their owners. They let the puppies teach each other. What a concept! Amazing how well that works. There are several trainers around to help direct and instruct. We definitely recommend Clever Canine Dog Training.

I cannot express how happy I am with the care and service provided by Claudia Ann and Berkshire Meadows. She went above and beyond each day, not only pottying my dogs, but ensuring they got enough exercise and water, training our puppy and providing them mid-day love. Her pricing was extremely fair and I felt the value was exceptional. She also was sure to follow up via text anytime she had a question or suggestion for our dogs, and always responded promptly to any of my questions. I am beyond pleased with my experience and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable and loving caregiver for their dogs!

Sit Means Sit changed our life!! 2 years ago we purchased an American Bull dog puppy who we thought would be a bundle of fun. I never thought such a sweet face would turn out to be a nightmare. Not only did she try to attack my little dog she also was just to out of control and strong to manage. I met Nick at a previous office I worked at and called him right up. They came out and I sent Bella away for 1 week and that's all it took for them to transform her into what we expected from her. The trainers have been nothing but a blessing and I tell everyone how amazing Sit Means Sit is. We will never have another dog without them. Its the best feeling in the world to have everyone tell me how well behaved my puppy is. My husband and I only use the best! Thank u Sit Means Sit!

My experience with the Motor City K-9 Solutions was pretty amazing they were very detail with the structure of the program how it worked willing to answer any questions whenever I had them to make sure I was aware of what was going on at any time of the training. They even offered structure payments for me to fit into my budget which allowed me to get dogs trained sooner than later without an extra strain of a big payment. I recommend anyone and everyone to Motor City K-9 Solutions for all your dog training needs they get 2 Paws up from us!

Linda Morin is such a blessing to my whole family. My husband wanted a boxer for our anniversary. I knew nothing about the breed except that they needed to have obedience training. Linda educated not just myself but my whole family on the behavior of the breed along with the proper training that our dog required. Working with her was absolutely wonderful, especially when I could see the progress not just with our boxer Rocky, but also with my kids as they also learned how to properly work the dog. The looks on their faces when they realized they could do it too was wonderful. Linda took the time to make sure we were doing everything correctly and that our boxer Rocky was progressing as well. I loved the personal touch she put into every training class. When she felt like we were ready, she invited us to start working in group classes. Wow what an experience to see her command a group of owners and dogs to process commands. It was quite amazing how she was able to control the whole class, while also giving personal attention to different individuals. She was also able to help us address a few problems we were having with our boxer. For example our boxer Rocky liked to jump on people when they would come to the house. She showed us how to stop that behavior. Linda Morin I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for not only showing us how to properly handle Rocky, but also for educating us on the breed. What you have done for us is priceless. Because of you I will always have a boxer in my life. Thank you so much. Mikki Vinton

When I have questions Dogology is quick to anwser! They give me great tips on how to control my pup! From techniques to walking when pup was playing tug of war with the leash, which by the way she hasn't done in weeks! Such a great walker now! When they do there lunch videos on different topics you learn so much! Even when you think you might know what they are about to say boom learned something new! Such as the video with retracable leashes... I never thought about what if your dog wanted to run after another dog or ran to the road and stop button failed? Now you have 12 feet of leash going everywhere. What do you do? I wasnt a fan of them anyway but still learned something new and can pass to friends and family about the danger. The training tips are not your normal pet shop teaching that at times I believe is not right or cruel. Dogology teaches you how to politely train and teach your dog in a manner your dog is not going to be frightened by you or harm them. Dogology not only has great tips and training but there is also military background so right away you will have the professionalism and background any customer deserves! I have recommended Dogology to many people! They can personally help train your pup and/or give you tips and tricks on how to if your training on your own.

Bonny is very knowledgeable and experienced and you can tell she loves dogs. She gave me very thorough instruction on training my dog. She is patient and understanding and knows that every dog is different and she tailors her lessons based on the dog and myself. I would hire her again in a minute - highly recommended!

My training is based off of positive reinforcement. I absolutely refuse to use things such as static collars, choke chains and potentially harmful diciplinary actions. My goal is to create a bond between the pet and the pet parent and help each individual live the life they want happily with their pet by their side.

    I am dealing with a dog who will be a year on11-6, I have had the dog for about 2 months. I am having aggression problems with him. It started out with food but now he is becoming aggressive while he is resting. He gets agitated if he is laying on me and I try to move him. Or if I go to pet him while sleeping. I have tried to do some training with him, asking him to "stay" and "leave it" while putting a piece of food on the ground. He will do this but will snarl at me. Once he stops and looks at me I will give him a treat. During this time he will do a submissive urination.
