Susan was great! Kodi our mini goldendoodle puppy loved the training. She is very professional and knows what she is talking about. She takes the time to go over the food you have and treats to make sure they are good for your dog. You can tell she loves all dogs and uses positive reinforcement to train. She encouraged us on what we already had done training wise and what we needed to correct/work on. If you need a trainer, stop researching and call Susan! You will not be disappointed. She is very responsive to get back to you.
I highly recommend Angie as a trainer. We had Angie come to our home to help with behavioral issues/aggression with our dogs. Angie spent three hours with us working with the dogs and teaching us training techniques. We have been following her recommendations and the dogs have been responding well to the training!! Great experience!
First, this method works! One of the reasons I believe we had success with it was because Jeannie does a great job of explaining the philosophy of this method and takes a lot of time and care in demonstrating how to work with troublesome behavior. Working with your dogs behavior is a whole family process. Everyone needs to get involved. One of Jeannie’s strengths is that she not only works well with the adults and dogs, but she was able to communicate all the information and guidelines of training to my 10 year old so that she could participate in the process. Jeannie spends a great deal of time getting to know your dog, your home, and the humans involved!
Carrie helped trained Wimbledon and then generously offered to board him when I travelled. I boarded him six or seven times with her and every experience was outstanding. In addition to providing him with a safe and clean home she accentuated some more training points and brushed up on his obiendience. Her prices were more than fair and I was never concerned about my woofer in the least. I highly recommend Carrie and her training/boarding services.
Lin Morin of K9 Solutions is in my opinion Michigan's very own "Dog whisperer". No one that I have encountered knows a K9 better than her. Her compassion exceeds any limitations when it comes to our furry companions. Not to long ago I found out that I would be under going surgery and would need help walking, keeping my balance, sitting, and every day activities. I have a young beautiful female German shepherd and thought she could help me after my surgery. I consulted Lin about her, not knowing if my shepherd would be able to do such a task. When I approached Lin about my idea she greeted me with kindness and understanding, and most of all honesty. So many people now a days just see dollar bills when a person is in need and I must say, I never felt that way when talking with her. Also, my shepherd is small she is blond and not the poster child of "German Shepherd" identity in fact to look at her you would wonder what breed she is, and Lin did not treat her like a mut or un beautiful. That to me speaks volumes. I am sure if your reading this you know as well as I know our dogs aren't just dogs they are our babies. Lin evaluated my Opal Marie my shepherd to see if she would be a good candidate for service. After her training Opal was able to help me up and down my stairs, my steps and to help me around the house. When walking down steps Opal will allow me to place my hand on the middle of her back allowing me to balance and she waits for me, she does not rush or walk until I do. She also can do all of her training with no leash! I can hold her bandanna and give her the command and she stays right with me. She helps me get up from the sofa or any where I ask for her help. I cherish Lin Morin for what she was able to do for me and my Opal. I would recommend Lin Morin for any K9 service.
Alex is very professional, prompt and I feel confident that once I place my dog in his hands, she will be well cared for by an experienced dog handler who cares for her like she is his own. Alex has a wide range of experience and is always willing to help with any problem. I highly recommend BusyPaws Dog Training.
Passion Fur Paws did a great job training our dog Koda! Crystal made sure when we left training that we didn't have any questions and made sure we were training our dog properly. Just after a couple of days from the very first session there was a difference in our dogs behavior and listening. It just got better after each training. Crystal also called during the week after each session to make sure training was going good at home and to see if we had any questions. Would highly recommend taking your dogs to Passion Fur Paws training.

Ms Griffith can equip you and your pets live happily ever after with her gifted guidance.
My initial visit with Kathy was awesome, she really helped me with the behavioral problems with my dog, and I enrolled in her dog class as well as having her come to my home. She noticed interactions that i never noticed that i do with my dog. (i ask questions to my dog not commands!!) Otis will be a better dog for going thru training with her. well worth the money for the home visit and the 6 week class.
Best GSD puppies around! They also offer fabulous training for all types of situations.

I am a certified dog trainer, but I love animals, so I am willing to do other jobs as well. I have experience with special needs pets as well.
Included in my cost if a guarantee I will not leave until my cutomer is satisfied with the training their dog is getting. I always make sure my work is 110%. I provide several dicferent methods unlike most trainers because each dog learns better by a different method.
I am certified through the United States Department of Labor. I also earned and successfully completed pet care service tech program. I have worked with a variety of dogs, everything from a 7-pound toy poodle to an over 100-pound Great Dane. I use positive training methods and provide healthy structures.
I'm a Dogs Lovely and I'm very good with dogs and I like to take dogs on walks and played with dogs
My prices are cheaper than most and I take my work very seriously
I've worked around dogs for years since I was young, so they are pretty much second nature to me. I have a strong love and passion for animals.
I want all of my clients to feel powerful with the tool I show them. If you have a tea cup Chihuahua or a Tibetan mastiff, I want you to be in control no matter what and feel safe wherever you go.

I will help you train you dog to be a good companion for you and your family. I can help you get your retriever started. Remember: they are dogs, not people. You can't reason with them. You have to show them what you want and keep showing them till they get it.
