I am just getting into training my dog, but what I am impressed with so far is her patience and kindness with the trainers as well as the dogs.

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.

Had an out of the country trip and needed a solid trainer/boarding while we were away. After about two minutes on the phone with Anna I knew I had found my trainer. I took my dobie pup out to check out her place and meet with her and even after one 5 min session I could see a difference in our dog's demeanor. Whether it's basic obedience and house manners or schutszhund training, Anna is a no nonsense gal who gets it done right in a fun and positive atmosphere. I was worried sick when we dropped off our pup because we'd essentially spoiled her and made her an overgrown baby! lol. By the time we got back she was bigger and happier than before because she had a JOB and was having a blast doing it! I cannot recommend Anna enough and can't wait to head back for more lessons and more bootcamps. Our dog had a great time and we felt good knowing she was in capable hands. Thank you Anna, you're life saver!!

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!

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.

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.

About

Borderhauss Builds Brilliant Dogs by using reinforcement and choice training. This means we teach your dog to want to do the right things and therefore respond quickly and consistently to your every request. It's not too good to be true, it can be done with a little time each day from the household pet to the extreme canine athlete. Think about how your life would change if your dog did exactly what you liked all the time, after just a couple months. All our instructors are educated and/or certified using positive dog training skills. We can take the most complex behaviors and explain them in a way the whole family can understand. If your dog is showing unwanted behaviors like lounging, barking, fear, anxiety or you just want to get off on the right paw, take a look around our website and drop us a note. We would love to meet with you. Laura Maulbetsch, CPDT-KA, CTDI, AKC Evaluator

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.

As first time dog owners, we would be lost without the Learning Dog Academy and Delores. Delores was a master at leading us through what to do with a new puppy. She customized a training plan for us based on our goals, life style, and individual needs. Having that specific training schedule made our transition with our puppy, Niko, made progress so much faster than a group class, and cost us less money in the long run. In addition, our whole family has learned and progressed together with sessions at our own home! Delores also has a wonderful style that makes us feel open about asking questions and is a joy to work with. I would very highly recommend the Learning Dog Academy!

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.

Patience is key. Patience with both kids/adults, as well as with the horse/pony. Good things can be rushed, great things require time. I pride myself in being patient, kind, and forgiving. It is much easier to create a "pretty picture" correctly from day 1, than trying to fill in the holes left behind from others.

About

Does your dog jump, chew, bark, run away, have bad manners, or, even worse, have aggression? My in-home training offers basic obedience and help with solving everyday issues. Not every human learns the same, and not every dog learns the same, so we find the training methods that are best for you and your dog.

Every dog is different; therefore, every training plan needs to be implemented differently to fit your dog's individual needs!
