Meet Lark & Hazel

These gorgeous girls came to us after going through another local trainer’s program. This trainer has been known to use aversive training methods, including putting shock collars on puppies! His methods made Lark & Hazel reactive to other people and dogs, and they barked whenever strange people or dogs came anywhere near them. What’s worse, they chased every squirrel they saw, and would bark up the tree at it after it escaped!

Using our Focus-Based Training methods, we’ve been able to get them over their fear of other dogs, and eliminated their separation anxiety. They now leave squirrels alone, and their parents can take them biking on the trails without a shock collar!

Our Programs

Boarding School

Our seasoned trainers lead the program, customizing their approach to address the unique needs of each student, ensuring effective learning and behavior modification through two, four, and six-week programs.

Our campus is designed to offer a secure and nurturing space for our students, and we keep owners engaged through regular updates and weekly private lessons. 

What sets our program apart is actively involving parents through daily progress updates, weekly private lessons, and weekends at home for a gradual reintroduction, ensuring ongoing success and a smooth adjustment for students returning home. 

This comprehensive and family-oriented training program is the ideal choice for busy pet owners committed to fostering the well-being, harmony, and lasting bonds with their beloved canine companions.

Day School

Day School is a dog training experience like no other in Southeast Michigan. Designed as an innovative solution for busy pet owners looking for professional training for their dogs, this program combines the convenience of daytime training with the expertise of our skilled trainers.

Every Monday through Friday, we pick your dog up in the morning, and take them for structured training and field trips, focusing on essential obedience skills and socialization. 

Dogs enjoy a day filled with structured activities, learning, and play, tailored to their individual needs and behavior goals. The program also includes owner education, ensuring seamless integration of training techniques at home.

With flexible scheduling and a commitment to positive reinforcement, Dogology University’s Day School Program is perfect for those looking to enhance their dog’s behavior and social skills in a supportive and engaging environment.

Group Class

Dogology University’s Group Classes offer a dynamic and interactive way for dogs and their owners to learn at a self paced rate. 

These classes focus on building essential obedience skills, socialization, and addressing common obedience challenges in a group setting. 

Led by experienced trainers, these sessions not only provide practical training techniques but also foster a community atmosphere where owners can share experiences and tips. 

The group format encourages dogs to learn in the presence of other canines, enhancing their social skills. 

Ideal for those seeking a collaborative and supportive training environment, Dogology University’s Group Classes are perfect for enhancing the bond between dogs and their owners while mastering key obedience skills.

What Our Customers Have to Say.

Introducing the Dogology Teaching Method

At Dogology University, we employ our distinctive 3-Point Teaching Method to guarantee effective canine and human learning, and lasting behavioral change for both the dog and their parents. 

We focus on teaching the dogs, educating the parents, and providing ongoing support and aftercare beyond the initial training program, ensuring comprehensive support throughout your entire journey with us.

Teaching the Dog

At the heart of our methodology lies focus-based dog training. We adhere to a comprehensive approach encompassing clear communication with the dog and the human, ensuring that both parties understand what is being asked of them, and refining the behavior by testing it in different environments (ie proofing for perfection).

Our trainers specialize in capturing and maintaining your dog’s attention, fostering an environment where learning is not only effective but also enjoyable. This focus-driven training system establishes a profound connection between the dog and the family, resulting in more responsive and enthusiastic learning experiences.

Educating the Family

Our main focus is (and always has been) helping families understand how to reinforce the skills that their dogs learn with our trainers in real-world environments. We are one hundred percent committed to making you a part of your dog’s training, which is why we hold weekly lessons with you and your dog. 

When we first meet, we talk together about what the family wants their dog to learn, and tailor our training program around their goals. Whether you’re teaching your new puppy to sit or perfecting your older dog’s off-leash recall, we’ve got you covered.

Every week, we share videos of your dog’s training, so everyone can see how it’s going. In our weekly meetings, we teach you all about our training methods, show them what your dog has learned, and practice together to make sure everyone understands. This way, your whole family can have fun and succeed in learning with your dog!

Ongoing Support

After you and your dog complete your initial training sessions, we offer support through weekly group classes and online courses to help you and your dog continue learning and doing well. 

In our experience, we’ve found that canine and human learning is always ongoing, and we’re committed to helping you and your dog thrive in your new-found partnership together.

If you’re busy and you’d like even more support, we offer daycare services where our trainers can take your pup for the day to brush up on their skills. We’re here to make sure you and your whole family succeed!
