1. Board and Train

This program is ideal for clients wanting an accelerated training program and / or who are not able to commit to a consistent training schedule.
Your dog stays with us for their training where we will accomplish a lot of training in a short period of time. We then train owners with their pets in both private and group sessions that are included with each package.

2. In-Home Training 

This program is ideal for clients that are wanting a convenient option and have the training conducted at their home.  Our trainers will travel to your home or other location dictated by your training goals and train your dog and you.

3. Private Lessons 

This is our most popular program and it is a good option if you would like to be involved in the training process. You will meet with your personal trainer once per week for private lessons, to focus on obedience basics and behavior modification training. Once basic obedience skills are obtained with your pet, you will attend group classes which will help to desensitize your dog when confronted with distractions.

4. Drop-off / Pick-up 

Get everything that board and train has to offer but you would prefer it if your pet came home every night? With our Day Drop off program, we work with your dog to teach them everything that they need. These are scheduled by the day, and our staff will focus training based on the needs of you and your pet.

Happy Pet Parents

Great experience. Our adult dog needed some retraining and is doing much better. Megan worked with our hectic schedule which was very appreciated. I recommend giving them a try.

Highly recommend Dog Training personalized. They truly showed us how to interact with our 1 year old GSD. Megan was great at communicating with us and demonstrating how to best train our dog. Our dog is happier because of the training and now gets to go on regular walks without issues!

Contacting Dog Training Personalized was the best decision we made for training. From the consultation with Steve Dunham to the training with Sami Clark (she rocks!!), we were hooked. You will be too. Sami was very patient and loving with Crosley. Sami was able to train Crosley, and us, with all the commands needed to have a happily trained puppy family. Thank You!!

Megan is a very knowledgeable and patient. She taught us so much with our labradoodle puppy. She knows and loves dogs. We highly recommend her!

My 3 yr old Shepherd was with this facility for a 2 wk board and train. I can’t give trainer Megan, and the team at Dog Training Personalized enough praise, for the training outcome with my 3 yr old Shepherd. Megan was the main trainer for my Shepherd and my gosh! This girl has an unbeatable passion, talent and professionalism for training and towards the Canine. She went beyond just using tools and commands. She used the very approach that I find so important with training. She built a personal relationship, along with building a “working” relationship with my Shepherd. She accomplished in a limited time, what I was unable to do for years. I was amazed to watch, through updated videos and pics, how happy and eager he was to be working with Megan. Trust me when I say, it was difficult to be away from him, but Megan’s constant communication and updates through pics and videos gave me reassurance that he was with the right trainer, team and training facility. For me, seeing is believing. I would have “never” believed that he would be in a sit or down, that someone could not only walk away from him, but leave the room, out of sight, and he would remain until released. The entire facility was clean and sanitary. The staff was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, not only in “training” but the physiology of my breed. I was impressed with all of the team who help with his training. Each one off them, Megan, Sydney, Sami, (sorry, I’m sure that I have forgotten someone) brought their special talents during his training. Megan, put her heart into every moment she could, bringing the best out of Atlas while he was there. She accomplished every bullet point that I had concerns with or had ask for with his training. Most importantly, I was the one, as his handler, who needed the training. She continued to educated me, in many techniques and approaches with training. She helped with understanding the dogs thought process. Giving me a better understanding as to why and how, along with correctly handling and carry on, the training he learned. Trust me when I say, we are grateful for Megan and to this facility. Beth and Atlas

Life with a dog is never perfect. But it can be better.

Leash pulling is a common problem that motivate many of my clients to pursue training help. Most dogs can quickly learn how to walk on a loose leash next to their owners, without pulling. The following are pictures of a dog and owner during their first lesson practicing a heeling exercise. Notice the dog is learning to pay attention to the owner, there is no tension on the leash, and the dog is walking next to the owner. These photos were taken after 10 or 15 minutes of practice.


This is an example of off leash training and practicing “Door Manners” with Lulu. Lulu lives in Detroit is here for boarding and training. She is a 7 month old Bernie Doodle puppy.
