The best! I have been bringing my Belgian Malinois to MDT for over a year. She has completed two private training packages, an array of nose work training, multiple group classes and she currently attends daycare with Mike & his staff. They are incredibly professional as well as always reliable and responsive, getting back to me almost immediately, no matter the time of day. Staff communicates with me throughout each day my dog is at daycare, sending updates and even photos of my dog having a ton of fun. It is a huge relief to me to know that my dog is safe, happy and genuinely loved while I am at work. Not having to worry about her takes a huge weight off of my shoulders. I simply will never trust or send my dog to any other dog training/care facility, ever - MDT is unmatched.Sarah Johnson & Calypso
Michael and Michigan Dog Training helped us with our 4 year old German Shepherd rescue we had for 2 months. Prior to entering the private lessons, at Michael’s recommendation, our dog walked poorly on leash and had a very high prey drive including towards other dogs. He tailored our private lessons to work on basic leash walking and working with exposure to other dogs. Within the 6 private lessons, he has been walking with nearly no pulling on leash and much improved in his response to not only dogs but also other animals. The training and information provided have certainly changed our rescue dog for the better and each step with Michigan Dog Training was easy and yielded great results.Kevin Respondek & Kodiak
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. You will receive:
- Quick response and solutions to your dog’s behavior problems (all breeds, large and small)
- Dog training done for you (Board and Train)
