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!

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!

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.

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!

I walk dogs and clean and feed them. If you need anything else, just ask. If the dogs stay overnight, owners have to pay more even on weekends.
