Karen has done an excellent job of working with me and my dog on our issues. I was at a loss of what to do with him and she swooped in and got us right on track. I would recommend her and wouldn't want to train with anyone else after meeting with her. Her techniques work. If you are struggling with behavior issues with your dog, don't hesitate to call Karen.
Jeannie is really great! I absolutely love her approach to dog training... because it ACTUALLY WORKS ... yay!!! I've taken my dogs to other trainers... and I just ended up wasting my money because it covered the symptoms... and we never go to the root of the problem. Jeannie actually teaches the why AND how... LOVE IT! I definitely recommend her!!!
mondoucu is a great group to belong to. Dog information that is shared about canine issues/training. You and your dog learn how to work together and develop a great relationship.
A wonderful and caring dog sitter. Will be a customer for life.
I have a rescue German shepherd, he was found severely emaciated running the streets of Miami. I tried numerous trainers and techniques with no luck getting a handle on his reactivity towards other dogs (barking, lunging aggressively, almost dragging me down) and his "taste" for cats! I think he may have had to hunt one down for food during his life on the streets. He almost broke through my windows trying to go after my neighbors cat. That's when I knew I needed the help of a true professional! No YouTube videos were going to help me. I noticed a difference in Rex's reactivity towards other dogs in just 2 training sessions! Mike not only trains the dog but he trained me as well! I had been giving my dog a lot of cues that I didn't even notice I was doing. Now I can comfortably walk Rex and even have him coexisting happily with two dachshunds who are now his "baby dogs" who he loves to take care of. He now will walk by the neighbors cat no problem and abide by my commands! This has given me such confidence and an interest in dogs that now I am looking into competition obedience and tracking with my lovable Sheppy! Thanks talon k9!!
Erica was outstanding helping us to integrate an adult dog, with lots of energy and enthusiasm, into our house that already had two cats who do not like change! She created a thorough plan and helped us to implement this plan at each step. As new challenges or situations arise she is always willing to offer helpful advice and tips. I would highly recommend her!
Best GSD puppies around! They also offer fabulous training for all types of situations.
I can do that for you a lot of things but you can do it for you all the time you need it now but it doesn't work with
I am a professional dog groomer (dogs only) with 5 years of experience. I also walk dogs and will pet sit animals of any kind.
I have the ability to adapt training strategies for each individual canine and human partner. I use balanced training strategies.
I'm a Dogs Lovely and I'm very good with dogs and I like to take dogs on walks and played with dogs
I would love to walk, play and bring your small dogs to the park. I offer half or full hour service for $8 per hour rate. I have my own little Yorkie.
I work with individuals and there lovely pets to ensure forever homes. I can go to them or we can find a spot training area that will help resolve other issues elsewhere. Obedience and manors are easier to teach if someone can show you how by demoing with other dog and walking you through the steps. A person does not train a dog in a hour. It is a gradual and consistent project over time.
I love dogs, and I love to watch them. Dogs love me, and I will be happy to watch your dog and to see them.
Thanks to for all good things and we strive on this to make it up a little better to do it all and sundry a better

My price is negotiable, and I am willing to work with you to get the best experience for your fur kids!
Im only 16, so you can be safe knowing your furry friend, wont be in any harm, plus i love animals!
KK provides in-home training, consulting, and the much needed advice for many owners who need help in understanding their canine partners. We also provide dog sitting in our home. We offer consultations on behavior, nutrition, health and understanding. She has been to numerous clinics on dog behavior. Her most beneficial being the clinics held by a Canadian trainer. In order for you and your dog(s) to have a successful relationship, you need to understand how a dog thinks and what he/she needs. This is something we would love to help with. There's nothing better than a "talking dog."
Our focus and commitment is this: Helping improve dog and owner communication through positive and effective training techniques. I am available by appointment for in-home training sessions to work on behavior issues you may be experiencing with your dog. We also offer dog and puppy training classes during the summer months.
I have the time and patience to work with any dog, from aggression to shy dogs.
The Well Mannered Dog Centers fantastic facility in Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan, offers outstanding dog daycare, boarding, dog classes and events. We offer dog daycare, boarding and classes in Grand Rapids. Dog lovers have a deep desire to talk dog and spend time with others who feel the same way. That is just what The Well-Mannered Dog Center was created to provide. The facility is designed to be used as a base for the many area dog training clubs, breed clubs, 4-H clubs and all citizens who enjoy the company of their canine companions. Its a place to play, learn, compete, and network with dog-loving kindred spirits. During our daytime hours, we focus on canine daycare and exercising our boarding dogs. Our nights are filled with competitive action. Our indoor areas are large enough to simultaneously handle three separate training classes and a regulation-sized agility course. This translates into plenty of indoor space, so people can drop in for a few hours in the evening for play, to practice, attend classes or even join a flyball league. Flyball is a furious relay sport for teams of four and their dogs. The competition is ruff and is a great spectator sport as well. Dog Daycare When you are away from home, do you often worry about your canine companion alone waiting for you, and wish there was a dog daycare facility where they could receive some attention and healthy activity? At The Well-Mannered Dog Center of Grand Rapids, our dog daycare staff members are ready to tire out your pet, so you dont have to. Our staff of canine professionals knows that dogs are social critters who crave interaction with people and other pets. At our dog daycare, canine play groups are matched to size and personality. Seventy-five clean and safe kennels provide feeding space and quiet rest time in between rollicking play periods in our large indoor and outdoor areas under the watchful eyes of our staff. We screen all prospective four-legged clients to ensure that they can get along with other dogs. We insist that dogs be spayed or neutered, current on their vaccinations, and on regular flea and tick maintenance programs. Pets found to be ill or with fleas will be quarantined and held for the day at an additional charge. Classes Beginning obedience dog classes are geared to our clients who want more control and a stronger team work bond with their companion canines. Our goal is to enable our clients to handle their dogs in all situations, indoor and outdoor, with confidence. Obedience dog classes are an excellent beginning step for having a well-mannered dog, and can serve as ground work towards advanced performance AKC and UKC competition dog classes. At The Well Mannered Dog of Grand Rapids, our obedience dog classes refine the control behaviors to a faithful level of execution. Beginning obedience dog classes are offered only in a group setting because we know that a group class will yield the best results, as it provides the distractions of the other clients and their companions. Agility dog class provides a positive approach to agility training. Control and accuracy will be emphasized while introducing you and your dog to AKC and international style obstacles. The well-mannered dog freestyle dog classes combine tricks and basic dog obedience to form a musical routine you and your dog perform together. Big or small, formal obedience skills or not, all dogs can do this! Freestyle is a great exercise and fun for both you and your canine partner. Whether you just want to have fun in your own living room, entertain at a local nursing home or get out and compete, freestyle dog classes are a great way to build a wonderful relationship with your dog with a focus on fun, fun, fun!
