Lisa Freeman was my instructor for Therapy Dog Training. She had family members at the ready to be in a wheelchair or on crutches as needed. She prepared myself and my dog, Comet, to pass the TDI test-- which we did. And, she took us on a visit to a nursing home which was my favorite part. A photo of an elderly lady resident, myself and Comet even made the newspaper. I'll never forget how excited someone who couldn't talk and was in a wheelchair was to see my dog. Her eyes lit up when we entered the room and her arms popped right out to hug and pet him. How is that for non-verbal communication? Both Comet and I knew she wanted him to come over and provide some pet therapy. Heart warming. Also, my 3 boys got to come along. I thought they would be difficult and bored and want to leave. It was quite the opposite. A great all around experience on many levels. Thank you, Lisa!
My experience with Kaybees K9 Training has been very positive and rewarding. Her approach to training is thorough and precise. I recommend Kaybees whenever I can.
Seven years of experience working with dog of all ages. Also, one year of experience as a Holistic Nutritionist for dogs. Offer beginner training, advanced training, and training for dog and human aggressive dogs.
I have the ability to adapt training strategies for each individual canine and human partner. I use balanced training strategies.
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.
Dawn is a fabulous instructor. She is so knowledgeable and commands such a comfortable assertion with my puppy that is still warm and friendly, but still puts my dog and I at ease when working with her. She believes strongly in positive reinforcement (both with dogs and owners, haha!). She is timely and comes to each private session very prepared. She is also always available when I have questions outside of our classes. It has made obedience so easy and my dog super happy. We always look forward to her next visit. I strongly suggest working with her. You'll see the difference after the first visit.

Behavior is modified by what happens before and after a behavior of concern. It does not matter which animal, only the correct identification of the behavior's function and the consistency of the outcome which follows. I am a licensed professional and the State of Michigan designates my education as Behavior Specialist
Tonia at Pretty Puppies is absolutely fantastic. Norman always has a good time and we love the care she showed.
I have four dogs of my own, a beagle, chocolate lab, dachshund, and pitbull. I showed dogs for six years and worked with all types of different breeds. I showed in obedience, showmanship, and agility. I am comfortable with any breed and any attitude they may have!

This is a basic obedience program for you and your dog. Sit, down, stay, and come, either on leash or off leash, will be gone over during the program. I also will assist you with any behavior issues that you might be having with your dog, such as destroying property, inappropriate pottying, refusal to obey, or any other issue that has become a problem for you. I will come to you once a week for four weeks in a row. The first session is usually 1 1/2 to two hours, and the sessions after that are dependent on how well you and the dog are doing with the lesson. I give the program to you in written form on the first visit, so you have each lesson at your fingertips for review. I take phone calls at any time during the program for assistance with any problem you might be having. I provide dog training for dogs that have owners who care.
