Smart Dog Programs


Dogs need safety, proper nutrition, training, physical exercise as well as mental stimulation to be relaxed and confident. Obedience is the foundation for a well-mannered family dog. Let us give you and your canine the education and tools for a successful relationship that will bring a lifetime of enjoyment for both. I have trained dogs and their humans for 15 years, it is my passion and life.


Off Leash Obedience

Send your dog away for approximately six weeks to the beautiful countryside of Metamora, Michigan to gain an off-leash obedience education. They will spend their time training, being properly socialized, hiking the fields and trails, and playing. Your dog will come home relaxed, confident, and attentive with a vocabulary of 16 commands. Smart Dog’s In Kennel Program produces a well-trained dog with its natural personality intact.
