Dog training in Michigan

Your dog is an instinctively social animal. As they grow up in their dog pack, they learn certain behaviors that are expected and acceptable. When they grow up in your family, they have to learn new behaviors that aren’t always instinctive for them. The great thing is that they want to be part of your family. They can learn good manners and live by people expectations.

Behavior problems such as dog aggression, anxiety, or biting can be replaced with good behavior with effective and humane dog training. Michael Burkey, a professional dog trainer and dog behaviorist will show you how to get positive dog training results.
