About Us

Hello!  Our training team is here to help you and your pet have the best relationship possible.  We are Fear Free Certified, use only positive-reward based training techniques and focus on making training fun for everyone involved.  

Our training plans and classes are designed to be easily understood and implemented.  Positive reward-based training allows you and your dog to learn with no pressure or fear from corrections, and studies show that dogs that learn under these training conditions retain the trained behaviors for life because they are associated with fun and treats.  

We are based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Check out our classes and private lessons, and if you don't see what you are looking for let us know, we will create a training plan to fit your needs.
