“Canine College is the BEST of the BEST. The Staff are wonderful. My dog loves going there, and they take such good care of him. Whether it be daycare or boarding I have peace of mind when he's there. I love that he isn't in a crate and just let out a couple of times and that he is out playing all day long. Well, he might take of a couple naps since he is one of the old guys on the young freshman field :-) but he loves it and can't get out of the car fast enough when I pull up. I would be lost without them!!!”

Common issues our trainers work on:
🐶Barking
🐶“Go to bed”
🐶Separation anxiety

We’ve seen an increase in separation anxiety since the world has shifted back to “normal” and our dogs are left home alone for longer stretches of time. We can help your dog with any of these issues—call 248.427-8245 and we’ll set up a plan for your pup!

If you’ve returned to work or other roles that take you outside the home for hours at a time, your dog might not understand why they’re suddenly alone for so long. It could lead to unwanted behaviors and separation anxiety. Help your dog learn appropriate behavior with positive-reinforcement training at Canine College. Visit caninecollegemi.com to learn more about our training!

No reservations required for dog daycare—and the first day is always free! Our furry students are never left unattended in the playfield, and they’re separated by size and temperament so they can have hours of fun with similar pups. Our playfields are climate-controlled, and each is attached to an outdoor field so dogs can relieve themselves on the K9 grass to reinforce housetraining. Private webcams let you check in on your dog at any time of day. Our coaches are skilled in dog management, pack behavior, and first aid. Learn more here: https://caninecollegemi.com/daycare/ or call 248-427-8245 to enroll!

“I would highly recommend Canine College to any pet parents in the area. Our Fur baby comes here for daycare, as well as training and we are thoroughly impressed with the results. The staff/coaches are all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Canine College is a full service facility offering grooming, training w/ customized reports to show student progress, and age/size based supervised play. I frequently check in whenever our puppy is at daycare via the convenient cameras on their app, and I'm able to watch him play and frolic. He is living his best life and we're very pleased.”
