Dog Training In Michigan

Are you looking for dog training? Do you want a better relationship with your dog? Did you just get a new puppy or rescue dog from the shelter, and you want to enroll them in training classes?

Hello, I’m Matthew Lamarand

I’ve spent the past 10 years learning a lot about canine psychology and dog training during my time as a military canine handler, and I’m still learning from each and every dog and owner that I work with. 

Whether you want your dog to sniff out IEDs, or come when called, I’ve learned that all behaviors start with the same thing: engagement and building a bond with your dog. If your dog is focused on you, they’ll do what you ask them to. 

 Here are a few issues that we’ve helped owners to solve:

  • Come reliably when called
  • Sit to greet guests at the door
  • Walk on a loose leash
  • Be calm when handled
  • Take food nicely from your hand
  • Sit and lie down from a distance
  • Be calm when playing with children
  • Follow commands when playing

It's Miss Gracie Poo's last day 😬
And how sweet did her watercolor come out?

It was a pleasure working with Gracie and her mom and we are so glad we will get to see them in January for a refresher group class! Gracie is a very spunky and lively girly who loves to play and work!! We will definitely miss having such an eager and willing student with us 🥰

Bentley is in the six week boarding school because he barks, lunges, and growls at other dogs. But, before we can focus solely on that issue, we need to create a solid foundation of obedience first.

He is on his second week here with us, and as you can see, he is being a good boy with sit with added duration and distance 😁

We are doing absolutely nothing this Sunday but watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix and playing with puppies 🤗

Have any of you seen Schitt's Creek and how are you liking it? 🤨

Mr. Bentley had a successful first week in his six week boarding school program. Despite being so anxious being away from his momma and drooling excessively because of it, he is gradually starting to become more focused and engaged with us in small 5 minute increments.

Like we always say to our doggy owners, work to the level of the dog... not where you think or want them to be 🙂

This little girl who I fondly call Gracie Poo 😂 (I don't know why, it just comes natural!) has serious enough focus to rival even the most intense Shepherd!!

We start every dog off by working on engagement. This teaches the dog to enjoy the training process and gives us a foundation to build on 😊

This is where Bentley is at on his first week here with us. As you can see he isn't very engaged, but give it a few weeks 😉

What our customers say

They are amazing people who know how to effectively train your dog to be a better part of the family. They also do a fantastic job at training the family how to control their dog and make the home environment more pleasant.

Jason Ley

“I’ve had an absolutely fantastic experience with Dogology University and trainer Matthew Lamarand working with my two puppies. On our first training day my dog was pulling at the leash and nearly yanking my arm out of its socket on walks. Less than two months later, we just went for a walk around the block off leash and my dog stuck right with us the whole time! I’m thrilled to throw my support behind Dogology University…my experience with Matthew has been nothing but positive.”
