Top Dog Training Reviews in Michigan

Just 1-2 Sessions! 

"Lisa is amazing. Fixed all my problems before I even asked a question." -Brianna M., Frankenmuth

"I noticed a difference in just 1-2 sessions.  Lisa is very knowledgeable and explains things very clear!  I have a mastiff with a lot of aggression and anxiety and she has done wonders to help get my dog back to being relaxed around other dogs.  Worth every $$!! She truly is a dog whisperer!!" -Sarah K., Lansing

 "Lisa was phenomenal! I was a little hesitant when she said one hour and one training would be enough, but she was right! She was extremely caring and connected with our puppies when she first walked in the door. Now both pups are doing amazing! Thank you Lisa!!!" -Heather D., Ann Arbor

 "Lisa came to my house and within minutes had both of my dogs responding to her. I was amazed how quickly she was able to teach two young dogs better behavior. I will use her services again and highly recommend her." -Kristy S., Durand

 "Lisa is a great trainer. She is very knowledgeable about how to help the dogs and the family. I would highly recommend Lisa for all your dog training needs." -Charity P., Owosso

 My rescue/Russell Terrier mutt always jumped and barked at oncoming cars. ALWAYS. So when I moved to a new home without a fence it made walks very difficult. Nothing I did helped. So I called Lisa and the problem was fixed after one training session and doing my homework. I’ll definitely use her in the future when needed for my 3 dogs. -Megan K., Ypsilanti

Lisa came to help us with our adopted terrier pup. She is excellent! She demonstrated how to deal with unwanted aggressive behavior and we saw improvements after one session. -Mona T., Eaton Rapids

 "Lisa was amazing. I learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s super kind and has an incredible knowledge about dogs. My dog is better behaved now! And I have the confidence to train him going forward with what Lisa taught me. Highly recommend!" -Emma S., East Lansing

 "I love the work quality, professionalism, and the value but most of all I love the fact that there are real results! As long as you follow what is taught you WILL have amazing results." -Kathrine W., Rochester Hills

 "Lisa is amazing!! The support and ease you feel working with her is beyond words.  My girl is making great progress in less then a week.  Giving hope for a brighter future!! You not only gain a trainer you gain a friend!!!" -Wendy S., Cadillac

 "Lisa came to our home because I contacted her regarding our Chocolate Lab and possible aggression issues. She gave us great tools for working with him.  It is easy to see she has a love for dogs and really knows how to connect with them. We are very fortunate to have found Lisa and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing any help training their dog. After just one session we can already see a positive change." -Chris D., Detroit

 "We had one session with Lisa and right away we can see the big difference in our puppy! Its like night and day. :) We simply wanted him to stop chewing our toes (on top of everything else:) and to come to us when we call his name. Lisa has made all that happen in just one visit! We are every satisfied and will definitely call her back again for more training!" -Grace W., White Lake 

 "Lisa was wonderful. She provided me with loads of information. She is very professional and worked well with my puppy. I actually wrote everything down in my notebook after my session so I could remember everything and work with my puppy. After our session she told me to call if I had any questions or issues. She is a very good trainer, I would definitely recommend her to anyone!" -Bianca K., Deerborn 

 "I had a very positive experience.  One session with multiple suggestions and my dog was a different dog.  Easy to implement, positive for my dog and put me back in control.  Many thanks!" -Kristin L., Chesaning


 "Lisa is a gem! At first, I wasn't sure if a personal trainer was appropriate for an 8-week-old, but it was a great investment! I learned how to curb all the puppy terrors (biting, barking, chewing,etc), as well as how to incorporate and develop daily discipline. I received excellent direction and professional treatment. My pup was also thrilled to have her! I am so grateful for the services of Positive Engagements." -London H., Ann Arbor

 "Lisa is a wonderful trainer to work with.  My GSD pups took right to her instructions and adored her even when she was correcting them.  She did an excellent job of instructing us on how to train them which is what we needed.  She explained what we did right and what we did wrong without making us feel dumb.  I am a cat person so I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was on the right path with their training.  After just one visit with her the puppies are doing better and we are looking forward to pleasant walks with them around the property instead of being drug around where they want to investigate." -Rochelle W., Lapeer 


 Lisa came to my house to help with my 1 1/2 yr old Aussie's separation anxiety.  She gave me several solutions and things to work on.  I loved her and so did my dog.  I would highly recommend her and found her very easy to work with. -Margaret P., Northville

 "Lisa was just awesome she helped with the issue my puppy has (separation anxiety) and more!" -Victoria S., Novi


 "My lab and I attended a class with Lisa Freeman. My intent was to expose her to men because she was afraid and showed aggression.  I was pleased with the outcome right after the class. Lisa's class also was training higher level dogs to be certified therapy dogs to be able to go into nursing homes and other facilities.  My dog did experience some of that training as well.  7 months after class, I took my dog into a group home with mentally handicap adults. She was a little shy at first, but settled in like she belonged there. Thank you Lisa!" -Christine N., New Lothrop


 "Lisa worked wonders with our newest dog who was causing chaos with our other two and being a chronic barker on top of it all.  She showed us some very simple techniques that set us on the right path.  She saved the day!" -Sue D., Davison 

 "Lisa A Freeman did an outstanding job teaching my husband and I and training both our dogs today. I would recommend her to any of my friends. Only after 1 session we can see quite a positive difference in both our dogs. Job well done!" -Maryann A., Brighton 


 Lisa shared tips & educated me about how to train my little rescue Yorkie, who was, believe it or not,  almost impossible to cope with! She also told me about a piece of doggie equipment that no other trainers had told me about. All this combined has turned my dog into a whole new personality. I now have the confidence to give my dog commands & know how to follow up if she doesn't listen. A lot was accomplished in a one hour session! -Natayla M., Ann Arbor

BEHAVIORAL (Jumping, Barking, Counter Surfing, Mouthing, Chewing, Leash Pulling)

 "She has good methods for the various problems you may be having with your dog. I liked that she came with collar and leash options you could buy after trying them out with her methods." -Jeff N., Novi

"Lisa was very professional from beginning of training until the end of training , she was very open to any question I had. She made sure I understood exactly what she wanted us to do before starting. I am extremely happy and would recommend Lisa for any dog training you need or help you may need with a current problem you have with an animal. She truly loves what she does and it shows in her work." -Elaine D., Grand Rapids 


 "Lisa was awesome with my Aussie/Lab Sulley! She was able to break his terrible leash reactive episodes and make him a calmer dog when guests arrive. I would highly recommend her training services." -Katie C., Lansing


 "Lisa has a common sense and calm approach. We already see a calmer dog as a result of her suggestions. I also liked that she came with several leash/collar options and we were able to keep them. It saved me from trying to go find them myself. We were impressed with her knowledge and look forward to working with her again." -Debra D., East Lansing

 "Thank you so much Lisa, You were amazing. I was at my wits end and worried. Now i am feeling so much better after our session. She is doing great. Thanks again." -Jamie H., Saginaw



 "Lisa was amazing to work with. I adopted an older shelter dog who has some PTSD issues which were causing her to be very protective over me and aggressive toward others (growling and showing teeth to people that came over), and she even put her teeth on my arm once. I thought I would be locked in for months once I found a trainer but I only worked with Lisa twice! A week after the first session I had already noticed a huge difference. She definitely has a special way with dogs. And she came out to my place the second time! I would highly recommend her to anyone having aggression issues." -Lauren L., Lansing

 "We did our evaluation session with Lisa last week and we are thrilled to be working with her in the months to come! Our dog, Belle, warmed up to her immediately and she has given our family such great advice already." -Kerry R., East Lansing


 "Our trainer Lisa is the best trainer. She is caring and firm with her training methods. She is very clear, as what she expects and is also training us the best methods to teach our GSD pup. I would recommend Lisa as a trainer to anyone who wants the best for their dog.  Michael G., Highland
