Able to stabilize the aggression of two dogs and make life pleasant again for all....me and the dogs.
Our family recently moved to Novi MI from Sri Lanka with our "village dog" Charlie. Charlie had extreme dog/ dog aggression issues and walking her was very difficult and dangerous. (We live in a dog dense neighborhood) When Beth contacted us we found out she too had raised a "village dog"! (Beth's daughter had brought the dog back From Africa. ) Beth was knowledgeable about the breed. She understood and could relate to the many challenges we faced training Charlie- most importantly she knew how to help both Charlie (and her family) learn and apply positive techniques to manage and gradually decrease undesirable behaviors. Beth has extensive experience training dogs and also brings along a wealth of knowledge due to her background in Biology and her work with Wolves. She is a highly experienced, competent, caring and compassionate trainer. We are so happy with Charlie's progress. Beth has also helped us, Charlies family understand our dog, her behaviors and taught us how to be better parents to Charlie - Charlie's also learnt some new tricks! Thanks Beth
She taught me how to teach Sarah Palin every thing she knows.. Anna real good dog trainer. Plus she is a good hard working person...
I don't even have words for how fantastic Clever Canine is. I am so incredibly grateful to them, they've changed everything about the way I communicate with my dogs. I have three big pups, all 3 or younger, and each with A LOT of personality. Mandy, Lizzie, and Emma had my deaf Australian Shepherd (who used to be afraid of people) eating out of their hand within minutes, even letting Emma scratch him on the head. All three are incredibly knowledgeable on obedience training, and my Anatolian Shepherd and Lab are jumping out of the car to see them. Mandy is an expert, and a wealth of knowledge for anyone who wants to learn. She goes out of her way to make scheduling work, takes a sincere interest in getting to know your dogs, and takes the time to create a plan that will work for YOU, no cookie cutter answers. They are even willing to take dogs into their own home for stay and train, then carefully go through all of the new commands and routines your dog has become accustomed to once they're done. I am confident she can solve any problem I'm having, including some dog aggression to others not in the pack. Emma is an Aussie whisperer, I COULD NOT believe he was sitting at her feet and looking her in the eyes within a few minutes of walking in the door. Lizzie is master of agility training, in just one session she had my dog through half of the obstacles. These are professionals, people, with kind hearts and sincere resolve to help you fix whatever problem you may have, for both you and your dog. The service they provide is unparalleled, and I couldn't be happier I went with my instincts on a family-run business instead of a chain. I will be working with them as long as I have any questions (they also do nose work and other sports). I am so, so grateful to have found Clever Canine. They saved my sanity with my dogs and are helping us ENJOY each other's company while constantly learning and advancing. Thank you so much for your time, team. I recommend them to everyone I know.
I used the immersion training as I had two female dogs, 7 and 3, that had their first fight a year ago, followed by one a few months later, then about six months after that two fights, one severe enough to have two bloody dogs. I knew I needed some serious help, and after talking with their trainers, we chose this option. The change when they got home was very noticeable. It wasn't the idea of correcting the dogs when aggression was shown, but redirecting their heads to acceptable behavior. The added benefit of the dogs heeling nicely, and the other commands taught is good. ,
Patty is a fantastic dog trainer. She's extremely professional and personable. She was able to answer all of our questions and teach us useful techniques to train our dogs. While it's up to us to use those techniques regularly, Patty's given us the tools we need. We look forward to continuing working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dog trainer!
Before I contacted K9AdvantEDGE I was at my wits end with my family dog. She was having such issues focusing and following commands. After her 2 week board and train with Tyler and Esther, Rooney was a completely different dog. I'm so pleased with the amount the two of them taught her. She is now one of the best behaving dogs in our neighborhood! If I ever get another dog they are the trainers I will be going back to!
We hired Tony because we had a vicious German Shepherd Dog and in 1 hour Tony broke our dog's willingness to attack anything and anyone. He is now calm submissive . Tony is an excellent dog trainer we highly recommend him.Tony said Ares was his hardest case to date. Thank you Tony we love you. You are very brave!
Valerie has been fabulous - not only has she helped us to train our dog, but she has helped us to be better puppy parents. From helping us to find the best food for our dog, to house and crate training and beyond, we have found our time with Valerie invaluable. I HIGHLY recommend Ann Arbor Canine Coach!!
I've been having trouble with my dog pulling on the leash. Tyler showed me some tricks & gave me some great tips to keep her by my side on a loose leash. Not only was he great with my dog, but he was very nice & patient as he was helping me work towards a more well behaved dog. I highly recommend him.
Patty's trained both my dogs and they adore her, she has a wonderful way with animals. I would definitely recommend her.
Steve is an awesome trainer!! I thought it was too late to get my dog trained but sure enough it was a smooth course!! Definitely would and will recommend Motor city k9 solutions to anyone that wants to get there pups trained not to mention the prices are amazingly low you won’t be disappointed.
Watching your dog master a command that you'd been working for five months in FIVE MINUTES...priceless.That is when you know you are in the presence of someone's professional.I first brought TJ to Mike at MDT as a rambunctious ill-mannered 10 month 90 lb German Shepherd. After taking a remote manners class, it was nice to be able to take him for walks and have friends over without worrying about someone getting knocked over. We came back to do the day camp to fine tune him and teach him to be more social with other dogs. In one week he has done a 180° turn and actually played with other dogs. I still can't believe the pictures! Meet Mike or Wendy or Kylie (or any of their wonderful trainers) and you will understand why we wouldn't take our big guy anywhere else.
I highly recommend this dog trainer. She agreed to travel to my son's home to accommodate his crazy work schedule.
My initial meeting with the trainer was excellent. She was very thorough and informative. She was very timely and accommodating. I was so confident in the service that I am seriously considering upgrading my package. I will definitely recommend Pro K-9 to anyone searching for a dog trainer.
Meghan arrived on time & was pleasant. She was not intimidated w/my aggressive dog & worked quickly. I loved the fact that she came to my home! I will definitely use her in the future.

Every dog that comes to me I do not give up on! No matter how easy or hard a dog is to train, I always do me best, keep my calm, and in the end I will succeed.
With the exception of two years in college, I've had dogs my whole life long, so it is second-nature to me to live with, care for, and train them. I've been through "obedience," "puppy school," etc. classes, with my own dogs, so I've been exposed to a the techniques used by a number of trainers. I'd call myself eclectic in my training approach, though I think that dogs, like people, require individualized approaches. In general, I think that dogs (again, like people) perform best when strong motivators are used to elicit desired behaviors.
I take pride in working with all dogs I teach. I'm passionate about getting the lines of communication open between Canine and Pet Parent. I want the dog to look up their owner for Guidance and not be an unruly dog. We all need to teach our Dogs Boundaries, Limitation and Rules and make everyone Happy. I will continue my services with a client til I feel they are confident in keeping up the training on their own. I guarantee My Services, if your Unhappy I will come back and give you 2 more sessions FREE!!
