Excellent help with my dogs training
Since this is our first experience with an obedience/dog trainer with (2) Austrailian Shepherds which were rescused from a puppy mill earlier, we were very impressed with Angie's knowledge and experience with dogs. Angie definitely was on time and spent considerable time explaining specific situations and educating us as owners as well as working with the dogs. We look forward to meeting with Angie again on April 22. And I am sure my sister, Pat and I, including Cider and Lucy, will learn many good pointers from Angie.
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.
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
Chelsea picked up my dog and trained her for 30 days. My dog came back like a different girl! She has a true love for what she does and I felt like our girl was in great hands! So glad we chose Sidekicks!
Valerie has been fabulous - not only has she helped us to train our dog, but she has helped us to be better puppy parents. From helping us to find the best food for our dog, to house and crate training and beyond, we have found our time with Valerie invaluable. I HIGHLY recommend Ann Arbor Canine Coach!!
We attended some classes at MDT with Michael and Wendy in the summer of 2014. Our dog Casey has made leaps and bounds improvements in his behavior thanks to MDT!
Laurie definitely is a legit trainer. Everything I know about training and behavior modification I owe to her. Laurie is my aunt, so Ive picked up a lot of experience through watching classes, taking 4-H dog groups, showing. She definitely knows how to break it down to a teaching level. The dog training is definitely the easy part, it's re-training the owners. In a lot of ways, her sense of control with all animals has rubbed off on me and ultimately provided me with a long lived career in veterinary medicine. As tough as is its sometimes dealing with your pets at the times you just feel you can't live with them, you just have to work that much harder with them. Can't ever quit. Laurie taught me that. So take her courses, THEY WORK! She makes them fun and enjoyable for you, your family, and your pets. Plus you learn on how to make you dependent on praise and love for your dog than stuffing 100 treats daown their throats.
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!
Amanda is reliable and responsibile with a passion for animals. She treats my animals like they are her own. I would highly recommend Amanda as a caretaker for your furry friends!

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 offer basic obedience, advanced obedience, AKC canine good citizen, beginning of service dog work, and beginning agility.
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.
I provide custom solutions for each dog, owner, and situation.
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.
