Jerry Board and Train

On March 29, 2019 Jerry completed his 6 week board and train program with flying colors. His parents Will and Sara were very happy with Jerry’s progress of being able to heel off leash instead of pull hard on the leash, stay on place off leash and to wait at doorways instead of pulling through them plus other obedience skills. They can now attend our Perfect Practice group classes for ongoing support. Great job Jerry!!

Channel 4 News

  On May 19, 2017 News Reporter and Anchor Steve Garagiola aired an earlier interview with Michael Burkey, CEO and Dog Behaviorist at Michigan Dog Training for their news story entitled, “Big dog behaving badly gets attitude adjustment thanks to good training.”  The interview highlighted one of MDT’s client’s dog, Duke, a South African Mastiff who had been aggressive toward the client’s son, other people and other dogs. Duke is a different dog and his owners say his behavior has improved dramatically. Click here to hear Duke’s story as told by his owner Mike Runyan.

Michael Burkey and MDT is Veterinarian Preferred! Many of the area veterinarians and their staff trust Michael and the MDT staff with the training of their own personal dogs as well as those of their clients.
