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!

Beth is an excellent down to earth teacher. In our first session we learned many techniques to calm down our pre-rescue dog Ruby and to have her obey commands. This week we are following written instructions from Beth to continue to train Ruby and our selves. In our first session, through Beth's help, our life with Ruby is so much better. Beth gave us a book she wrote on dog training and I have been eagerly reading it. It is a great reference book to help us continue training.

Anna has been absolutely amazing! She is so understanding and so realistic about training. My dog has only been with her a little over a week and she has kept in great contact with me about his improvements. Highly recommend her service! Not only a great trainer but just a very reasonable person :)

Had a great experience with Paws Around Motown. They took very good care of my dog at home while I was away for a long weekend! Would recommend them and plan on using them again. Thanks for the love you gave her!

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 changed our life!! 2 years ago we purchased an American Bull dog puppy who we thought would be a bundle of fun. I never thought such a sweet face would turn out to be a nightmare. Not only did she try to attack my little dog she also was just to out of control and strong to manage. I met Nick at a previous office I worked at and called him right up. They came out and I sent Bella away for 1 week and that's all it took for them to transform her into what we expected from her. The trainers have been nothing but a blessing and I tell everyone how amazing Sit Means Sit is. We will never have another dog without them. Its the best feeling in the world to have everyone tell me how well behaved my puppy is. My husband and I only use the best! Thank u Sit Means Sit!

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.

Bonny is very knowledgeable and experienced and you can tell she loves dogs. She gave me very thorough instruction on training my dog. She is patient and understanding and knows that every dog is different and she tailors her lessons based on the dog and myself. I would hire her again in a minute - highly recommended!

Need a Dog Trainer for a Boston Terrier

    I want to help my dog be nicer to other dogs and kids. We joined the midwest boston terrier rescue last year and Magglio was our first foster dog. We ended up falling for him, and adopted him. He is 4 years old and was given up for adoption because of jealousy issues. The previous owners were a young couple (like ourselves) and babied him a lot. When their new baby came along, he apparently nipped at the baby so they gave him up. The foster home that watched him before I took him in has all female boston terriers and he apparently grew up with all females, Doreen, the previous fosterer (and facilitator for the Michigan part of the Midwest BT rescue) said there weren't any problems with her dogs. The first time we saw Magglio's aggression was when he met my dad's dog (Bo, Jack Russel Terrier, 14 years old) for the second time. The first time we took them for a walk together and then brought them back home (dad's house) and they got along just fine. The second time we made the mistake of assuming they were fine and let Magglio come inside right away and after a minute of rolling around he lunged and latched onto my dad's dog. He has very strong jaws; when I picked him up to separate them, he lifted my Bo with him. After that, he seemed to want to take every opportunity to lunge and attack Bo. Bo is an old timer and was very shaken up and wouldn't even look in Magglio's direction. Since Bo is near death and was very shaken up by the incident we decided it best to just not have them meet eachother anymore. Last week, my sister gave birth to my niece. She had tickets to a concert in my area with her partner before the birth and I offered to watch her while she and her partner went to the show. The baby was less than a week old, so I didn't want to test Magglio at all, I kept him gated in the other side of our apartment. I did allow him to smell the baby from the gate, and when I was changing her in the bathroom he stood up and smelled her. He did jump up at her, and I threw him away before I knew what he was up to. He can be playful when he lunges, but I just never know when he is playing and when he is going to latch on. Just today I was walking him and I saw another boston terrier 6 month old we had met the other day with another younger but bigger dog. Magglio was fine with the boston terrier, but I was wary of the bigger dog. For whatever reason, magglio seems to not show aggression towards dogs about his size or smaller, but he seems to want to show his dominance over bigger dogs. He nipped at the bigger dog today and after pulling him away, I thought I would try again. They got close and smelled eachother but Magglio latched onto the dogs scruff on his head and wouldn't let go for a few seconds, it was really scary. I grew up with Bo and we had him since a puppy, so we never had an issue like this aggression with him and it is very disheartening to see Magglio act like this. I want him to get along with all dogs, and I especially want him to be okay to have kids around because we may want kids ourselves someday but we don't want to give up Magglio either. He is a sweet dog about 95% of the time. Anyways, he is a little big for a Boston, he probably is mixed. He is probably almost twice the height of a boston terrier and a bit stockier, I think he may have more bull dog in him than terrier.
