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!
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.
We in-board trained our newly adopted puppy with Sami ...our 75 pound puppy who was full of energy and had no manners! Her amazing way with animals and understanding of their behaviors is the key to her success. When we adopted Kade, we wanted a dog that can go anywhere with us and behave well in all situations. That is exactly what we have. We are complimented whenever we go out on his wonderful manners. I highly recommend Five Lakes Dog Training for all of your training needs. We are so proud of our sweet boy and all of his accomplishments. We couldn't have done it without Sami and Five Lakes.

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.

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!

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.
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.
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.
With over 25 years of professional experience, excellent google reviews and outstanding accomplishments we can guarantee you an excellent service.
I have always enjoyed training animals. This interest started when I was young. My family had dogs ever since I can remember. We had a German shepherd and a Rottweiler mix that I taught to sit, lay down, sit pretty and stay. These are basic commands, but I want to develop my skills more. It's a long shot, but I am hoping that someone can see the potential I have and take a chance on me. I will need to meet the dog and owner to get a handle on the situation at hand. Prices may vary depending on the skills your dog needs, traveling, general time training. I will not disappoint.
