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!
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.
Mr. Cooper explained what we would be receiving with the dog training sessions.
Friendly on the phone, Scheduled classes in the future, gave me a competitors name who will work with my young puppy until he's old enough for them. Thats how you get a customer
Becky and Laura are outstanding! I kind of hate to give his glowing review because I want them all to myself! They are so patient and kind. I have a fearful dog and they have been amazing working with her. I can tell they are excellent with animals and want the best for them. They are amazing!! I highly recommend!
We adopted a dog from K9 Petz and we had an awesome experience! I worked with Randi exclusively and she was so great to work with...Lots of communication back and forth, very informative and explained what was required of us and what our new family member, Vinnie, needed in a home. She kept me informed every step of the process, allowed me to visit Vinnie several times, including visiting with our dog and kids to make sure everyone got along well. Randi was very up front about what was expected of us. I had an amazing experience adopting our Vinnie from K9 Petz and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to expand their family with a new pet!! We couldn't be happier!
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!
Kasie is very gentle with the dogs and yet she is firm with them.
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!
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...
Chelsea picked up my dog and trained her for 30 days. My dog came back like a different girl! She has a true love for what she does and I felt like our girl was in great hands! So glad we chose Sidekicks!
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
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. ,

I love all animals and take the very best care of them. I'm patient, very timely, and very reliable. I have been taking care and training dogs since I was a child. I would love to give your dog my professional expertise. I will be loving your dog like a child.
