Matthew & Ashleena Lamarand met in Arkansas when he was a K9 handler for the government. Once they were both out of the military they moved back to Michigan and began researching what they could best do with their skills. Dogology University was born!
There was an abject need for dog training that educated parents. Dogs can be trained to do anything, but that doesn’t matter if the dog parent’s can’t get them to listen. The Dogology University program, with its unique formatting, can help parents integrate the training that the dogs have been given. The format includes support after training is completed.
There has been an overreliance on boarding schools, stay-away programs, and e-collars. Most of which the parents are not involved in during the process. Dogology University is the only trainer that does not use e-collars.
Dogology University’s mission is to help educate and empower dog owners to create enriched and fulfilling partnerships with their dogs.
Along the way, Matthew conducted hundreds of hours of research, and worked with numerous trainers (including Randy Hare) to formulate his focus-based dog training curriculum. In 2008, he started Dogology University to provide world-class dog training programs for owners in Michigan and the surrounding areas.
Matthew has completed several projects, including writing two books that have helped thousands of owners train their dogs.
After realizing 96% of surrendered dogs never went through obedience training, he has dedicated himself to train them for service dog work, and rehome them for children dealing with diabetes or behavior disorders, and veterans battling symptoms of PTSD.

Matthew Lamarand is a United States Military veteran K9 handler who disagrees with methodologies that rely heavily on equipment, which he thinks is ineffective and inhumane.
While working with a local dog training company, he noticed the dogs were obedient to the collars and treats, and not the owners. He started out to find a better way, by researching and studying hundreds of different theories.
From these efforts, he was able to create his revolutionary training method that eliminates over-reliance on equipment and treats. His method has helped thousands of dog owners around the world through his best-selling book, online courses, and seminars.
