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!

Beth is very talented at reading dogs and working with their personality types. She makes the training easy for the person to understand and follow too, so you can reinforce what she teaches the dog on your own. My dog has fear issues that Beth was able to help alleviate. I agree with Beth's philosophy that a dog and his/her person should be partners, not one dominating the other.

Best groomer ever! Jesse expertly,professionally and gently groomed my 17 year old rescue mixed breed dog,Barnaby. Barnaby is a much loved member of our family and Jesse treated him as if he were her own dog! He is a bit frail at his senior age and Jesse was very gentle and understanding of his requirements. She is an expert and gave me professional advice on care for my dog's skin and coat. My dog was calm and comfortable during the entire grooming process. Barnaby and I are so glad to have met Jesse as our groomer and look forward to seeing her again!

I don't even have words for how fantastic Clever Canine is. I am so incredibly grateful to them, they've changed everything about the way I communicate with my dogs. I have three big pups, all 3 or younger, and each with A LOT of personality. Mandy, Lizzie, and Emma had my deaf Australian Shepherd (who used to be afraid of people) eating out of their hand within minutes, even letting Emma scratch him on the head. All three are incredibly knowledgeable on obedience training, and my Anatolian Shepherd and Lab are jumping out of the car to see them. Mandy is an expert, and a wealth of knowledge for anyone who wants to learn. She goes out of her way to make scheduling work, takes a sincere interest in getting to know your dogs, and takes the time to create a plan that will work for YOU, no cookie cutter answers. They are even willing to take dogs into their own home for stay and train, then carefully go through all of the new commands and routines your dog has become accustomed to once they're done. I am confident she can solve any problem I'm having, including some dog aggression to others not in the pack. Emma is an Aussie whisperer, I COULD NOT believe he was sitting at her feet and looking her in the eyes within a few minutes of walking in the door. Lizzie is master of agility training, in just one session she had my dog through half of the obstacles. These are professionals, people, with kind hearts and sincere resolve to help you fix whatever problem you may have, for both you and your dog. The service they provide is unparalleled, and I couldn't be happier I went with my instincts on a family-run business instead of a chain. I will be working with them as long as I have any questions (they also do nose work and other sports). I am so, so grateful to have found Clever Canine. They saved my sanity with my dogs and are helping us ENJOY each other's company while constantly learning and advancing. Thank you so much for your time, team. I recommend them to everyone I know.

Patty is awesome! She gave us the tools and knowledge to start raising a happy and healthy pup. What we've learned is that dog training is more about human training. Patty gives you all the tools and then it's up to you and your family to implement these practices into your everyday interaction with your furry friend. Our pup Yoshi is happier! We can really see the difference since Patty came into the picture.

I had A GREAT experience with Jean! I was having trouble introducing my new rescue dog to my other dog and my kids, she came to my house and showed me the proper way of introducing a new dog and it helped us out tremendously! I will be signing my dog up for basic obedience training class this month! :) I always recommend her to people who need help with training.

We were having issues with our pit bull puppy such as leash pulling, chasing our cat, and slight aggression. Katerina gave us the tools to correct her behavior and we have noticed a significant improvement. Katerina came to our home and even brought her dog to help our dog with her dog aggression. I have recommended her to friends that are having similar issues with their dog.

Judi does a great job teaching dogs and their owners. We went to her basic obedience class and FIDO. FIDO was so much fun. My whole family enjoyed the experience, especially our dog. Her new facility is really nice too.

My dog came from a shelter and arrived with some bad habits. Marianne was able to teach us how to correct these habits pretty quickly. She is an excellent teacher and is patient and kind with our dog. Thanks Marianne! Great job.

I think Run Sparky Run is awesome! If I were a dog or any pet parent, I would certainly take advantage of the services. I met Elizabeth this past summer and you can tell by her presence that she is really naturally good with animals. The services that Run Sparky Run provides is a definite asset to the landscape of Detroit!!! :) :) :) :) :)

We recently hired Anthony to work with our dogs on house training. We were fed up and had tried everything. After a consultation with our dogs he quickly determined that dominance was the main issue and that if we fixed that, the peeing and pooping would go away. It's been 3 days since his visit and the dogs haven't gone to the bathroom in the house yet! We are thrilled with their progress and would definitely recommend Tony to others.

Pat really helped me in training my dogs. We worked on a lot of nuisance behaviors (jumping/barking/etc) and both basic and formal obedience like heeling, sit, etc.

Beej has a real passion for animals! She takes my dog out 1-2x a day while I am at work and leaves detailed notes about their experiences. My dog absolutely loves Beej, who provides stimulation, attention, and even puppy massages at times. I have complete faith that my dog is well taken care of while I am away and have referred Beej's services to my friends and neighbors.

I hired Jennifer to do basic obedience with my shepherd. She charged me 75$/hr took my dog for 45 mins. Came back to house and went over with me what to work on till the next training session. Was very thorough on explaining the reasoning behind her type of training. If I had any questions in between training sessions she was more than willing to answer them. I would hire her again if needed.
