Wendy Bemis and Esther Brandel


On February 19 2013, Esther Brandel, a student at Oakland Technical School in Walled Lake, Michigan learned what it is like to be a dog trainer by performing a job shadow program at Michigan Dog Training (MDT) LLC in Plymouth, Michigan.  She learned about MDT, the services it provides to clients (K9 Camp, Dog Day Camp, in-home dog training, on-site private dog training lessons, and group dog training classes) and a brief overview of how the dogs are trained from Michael Burkey, President and Dog Behaviorist at MDT.

After only  a few days of Day Camp, Billie pays attention to her mom.

She then observed Wendy Bemis, Lead Trainer and Certified Dog Trainer at MDT, train several dogs in it’s K9 Camp and Day Camp programs.  Brandel even received hands on training with some of those dogs.  Additionally, she observed Bemis conduct a private session with a client who learned how to continue her dog’s new calm behavior that she (Billie) learned at MDT’s Day Camp program. She also had the opportunity to watch Burkey work with his dog Kaboom, a Belgian Malinois, perform focused heeling and other obedience exercises. It was a quick paced and enjoyable job shadow for Brandel and MDT. Congrats Esther on a job well done!
