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...
Beth is an educated and professional dog trainer. We saw immediate results with both dogs, and feel confident that we can apply her methods ourselves. Her gentle, positive training approach is exactly what we were looking for. There's no need to look any furthur for a dog trainer, Beth is the best!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
We recently hired Anthony to work with our dogs on house training. We were fed up and had tried everything. After a consultation with our dogs he quickly determined that dominance was the main issue and that if we fixed that, the peeing and pooping would go away. It's been 3 days since his visit and the dogs haven't gone to the bathroom in the house yet! We are thrilled with their progress and would definitely recommend Tony to others.
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!
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!
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!!
Barbara Jo Matson has been walking and caring for my two Westies at noon for over two years. She not only provides amazing care for my dogs, she loves them as I do. I trust her to administer medications, monitor their health, and provide useful suggestions to improve their overall comfort, safety and health. Barbara has also been part of an in-home care team for my two Westies and my guinea pig when I have been out of town, I particularly enjoy reading Barbara's entries in the "dog-log." She always includes interesting and helpful details about the pets which keep us in clear communication. She is reliable and trustworthy. I whole-heartly recommend Barbara as an in-home pet care provider. Her service is second to none.
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 have been training with Nancy for little over a year. It sounds cliche, but her positive approach to dog training has made a world of difference in our dog, Mabel. We went to Nancy because Mabel was a brat, and we were at our wits' end. With patience, Nancy helped us train Mabel to be a wonderful and happy companion who travels everywhere with us. We would highly recommend A Positive Approach.
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.
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.

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!!
