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!

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!

We have just begun puppy training but came away knowing this was a very positive experience for both the dogs and their owners. They let the puppies teach each other. What a concept! Amazing how well that works. There are several trainers around to help direct and instruct. We definitely recommend Clever Canine Dog Training.

Sit Means Sit, Metro Detroit is amazing. Amy (and Nick) runs a fabulous training service. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. The trainers are something to behold. They truly have a gift with dogs, and people alike. I've been to group class with 20 or so dogs and was still able to receive individual attention. I adopted a 4-year old Black & Tan Coon Hound/Great Dane mix and was rather scared that I might not be able to handle him in social settings because of his size. Luckily he was a fairly well-behaved dog when I adopted him, but he was in no way perfect. He took me for a kite ride across a neighbor's yard trying to chase a cat. It was then that I realized I needed help and called around. I took advantage of the at-home free demo and I was sold. I liked their attention-based training philosophy. It is a very positive approach and really helps reinforce the positive bond between dog and human. It also didn't hurt that from the moment the trainer walked up the driveway my dog was smitten with him. After one in-home session I was able to take him for a walk without fear. After two in-home sessions I was able to have him off-leash. I highly recommend Sit Means Sit, Metro Detroit. Your dog deserves it!

Deb Nitz is EXCELLENT!!! She has walked our dog(who adores her). Deb, also, stayed w/ the dog, kitty, plants and house while my husband and I were away for almost 2 weeks. Whatever the animal's needs are , Deb went above and beyond to take care of our sweet babies. Our kitty has need of a "pumpkin concoction" for about 7pm @ night...no problem! Kitty came up and let Deb hold her...very unusual for our kitty. Deb walked and took the dog to the park, to play, run and socialize w/ some of the other park visitors!! (Always on a leash!) HAPPY, HAPPY PUPPY!!!! Lots of play time ! "Oh, by the way I did a little cleaning and laundry before you came home", she told us!!! Really, WHO does that?!? DEB NITZ...that's who! Lucy Burby, her reference to us, told me, "She sure does love her dogs!!" My 89 year-old Mom told me she was , "One of the nicest people she ever met!" My husband and I are very happy to recommend Deb Nitz and her pet skills (walking, pet sitting, socialized play, etc.) to any lucky pet. Trust that she will treat them w/ talent, care and love.

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

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 experience with the Motor City K-9 Solutions was pretty amazing they were very detail with the structure of the program how it worked willing to answer any questions whenever I had them to make sure I was aware of what was going on at any time of the training. They even offered structure payments for me to fit into my budget which allowed me to get dogs trained sooner than later without an extra strain of a big payment. I recommend anyone and everyone to Motor City K-9 Solutions for all your dog training needs they get 2 Paws up from us!

When I have questions Dogology is quick to anwser! They give me great tips on how to control my pup! From techniques to walking when pup was playing tug of war with the leash, which by the way she hasn't done in weeks! Such a great walker now! When they do there lunch videos on different topics you learn so much! Even when you think you might know what they are about to say boom learned something new! Such as the video with retracable leashes... I never thought about what if your dog wanted to run after another dog or ran to the road and stop button failed? Now you have 12 feet of leash going everywhere. What do you do? I wasnt a fan of them anyway but still learned something new and can pass to friends and family about the danger. The training tips are not your normal pet shop teaching that at times I believe is not right or cruel. Dogology teaches you how to politely train and teach your dog in a manner your dog is not going to be frightened by you or harm them. Dogology not only has great tips and training but there is also military background so right away you will have the professionalism and background any customer deserves! I have recommended Dogology to many people! They can personally help train your pup and/or give you tips and tricks on how to if your training on your own.

About

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
