Daisy, a hound mix attended our puppy socialization and basic manners group classes. She received the socialization and training that she needed as she was on the shy side but her family realized they needed more specialized help. Therefore, they enrolled her in Michigan Dog Training’s Day Camp program. Day Camp is like board and train but without the boarding. Dogs attended training three days per week for four weeks and receive training and supervised socialization play times throughout the day from several instructors. There is certainly time for play but the emphasis is on the training and socialization.
On September 11, 2013, Daisy successfully completed the Day Camp program with five stars and her mom reports her behavior at home has improved dramatically. We were very honored to receive this testimonial and puppy pictures of her during the past four weeks.
“Thank you for helping us to train Daisy. Daisy first came to the puppy socialization class with Wendy. My puppy was afraid of the other puppies, and I can remember her hiding in one of the dog tunnels. She now looks forward to playing with other puppies and dogs, and does well in interacting with them.
She then went on to the Basic Obedience Class with Wendy. She learned basic manners of sit, down, stay, wait, etc. while on a leash. She was able to do well with this class. However, at home when not on a leash and during her play time, it was a whole different story. It was like “No, Off, and Down” was in a foreign language. We needed some extra help and her teeth were razor-sharp. We were able to enroll her in their day camp with Michael, Wendy and staff.
During a holiday weekend, there was a point that we thought we would have to
re-home her. They were right there to help us, and we were able to keep her. I am especially amazed with the remote collar training. This way, she can be in the yard, and we can reinforce what she has learned with consistency. Michigan Dog Training (MDT) is an amazing team – so dedicated. ….Daisy’s mom S.S.”
We are also excited that Daisy will continue her learning and socializing with us in the ongoing Dog Day Care program.
