Golden Retriever Finds a State of Calmness

Ed and Oakley


You are a lifesaver! When I first called you, I couldn’t take another day with her and ever since the first day you came, our main problem was resolved….amazing. I even took her shopping at Petsmart and she walked next to me so nicely while I pushed a cart…couldn’t believe it.”  Lori O., Northville, Michigan

To help your dog find it’s state of calmness, contact Michael Burkey, a professional dog trainer and dog behaviorist.

On July 13, 2011, I received a wonderful update from Lori regarding Oakley:


“Just thought I would tell you that Oakley is doing sooo good. We have been up to our cottage a few times with many people around and other dogs staying with us (our biggest fear – as our last golden was always horrendous) and she gets along great with everyone, not as hyper as she was at all! She listens so well now. We also can let her run around the property by the lake and not tie her up. She has the “come” command down pretty well and stays right with us…not wandering off. Of course we keep an eye on her at all times and the e-collar so if she does start to go off we just call her and she immediately comes back. We are so happy and so is she because she can play with the other dogs and go swimming when she wants. Prior to this we always had her on a leash, even in the house when other people were around so she would not keep jumping on them. It was not fun for her or us. This is all thanks to you…I can’t express how much I feel that hiring you for training is the best money we ever spent.

We will probably see you in the fall at one of your classes or something. If any potential customers ever want a recommendation feel free to give them my number…I would happily give you a glowing recommendation!!!!   Lori”
