Happiness is a well trained dog
Are you looking for a gentle, modern approach to dog training? The training director and professional instructors of Best Friends Dog Training (founded in 1992) utilize their experience and skills to help you to build the relationship with your dog that you've always wanted. Effective Training is achieved using friendly, reward based methods to help your dog become a well-behaved companion in your home and in public places.

The strangest thing’s happened ... it’s time to go!
And so the time has come… I entered semi-retirement at the end of October 2013 and after so many happy and productive years, I will no longer be training dogs on Detroit's East Side.
I want to express my sincere gratitude for the excellent support that local rescues and veterinarians have offered Best Friends Dog Training over the years, and for the friendship we have shared. Your help and referrals have been part of our success and brought dogs and their owners great happiness.
Many thanks and warm regards to my training team (past and present)... and others, I will miss you all. Most of all I will miss the time spent building relationships with our dogs and with each other.
I wish you all well in your business and personal life and hope we meet again some day, in business or socially.
In the meantime, as my families health and time permits, I will continue to train dogs at my Lake Orion facility.
