Solution-based, results-driven training for you and your best friend

Whether your dog needs special attention for a specific behavior, or you just want your dog to be the smartest among his/her peers, Canine College is here to help with professional, solution-based, result-driven and dog-friendly force free training for dogs of all stages of development. Choose from a variety of obedience and behavioral training programs led by one of Michigan’s best dog instructors, CJ Bentley.

Always a Positive, Dog friendly, Force-free Approach

You and your dog will experience Canine College’s unique approach to training by developing a personalized plan that is effective but also fun while we train and teach discipline through positive reinforcement. We do NOT use Electric Collars (known as Remote Training Collars or e Collars). Canine College’s training methodology rewards positive behavior and emphasizes dog friendly force-free training practices which help to build a better relationship with you and your dog. If you have been seeking a Michigan dog trainer you can trust, look no further.
