About

Not all dog trainers are the same - some are good with dogs and not great at teaching their owners. We love people just as much as dogs, so we’ll talk together with you to come up with a plan together that fits your life and your preferences.

We have been bringing our dog to Clever Canine since he was a puppy and they helped us a great deal transitioning as first-time dog owners and being a rescue dog. Clever Canine continues to be a second family for my dog and a place I can trust to care for him. More...

Wonderful over the phone consultation. The information was very informative and helpful. I was also guided in each class offered. what it would offer and how it would benefit our puppy. Unfortunately, my internet lost connection and Ms. Mandy was kind enough to call and finish our conversation. More...

I cannot explain how incredible my experience with Clever Canine has been. I’ve worked with them for over a year and a half training my service dog, Lopez (Squishy is what he’s known as around here tho) and my other two doggos! I’d recommend this place to anyone/everyone in a heartbeat! More...

We are moving soon and won't be able to use Clever Canine for boarding anymore but we've been using them for years. Our dogs are NOT easy (anxious for one, stubborn for the other) but are both super sweet. It was such a relief taking our dogs here and seeing that the trainers/boarders loved them either way and saw past their troubles to see that they are both good boys at the end of the day. We're so sad to say goodbye but I just wanted to leave this review and encourage you all to use Clever Canine for training and boarding if you want to leave your dogs in good hands while you enjoy yourself on vacation. :) More...

I've never written a review before but she absolutely deserves 5 stars and praise! If you're not sure, she has a FREE preliminary meeting you can do with her to cover what course you'd like and what behavior concerns you. Mandy has made this whole puppy process much easier and is extremely informative. If you're a new puppy owner, you will learn A TON from her. She is very kind, considerate, and thorough. When I got extremely ill and busy, she completely understood and enrolled me in a new puppy group training class. When my automatic payment declined, she was very patient as I got my funds together. When I had concerns about my puppy's, turning teenage now, behavior she invited me to come to the building and have a talk about my puppy's behavior. Of course, she was spot on about everything and I'm working with my dog right now to correct her grumpy teenage behavior. If you have any concerns about any training method, she will offer alternatives. I HIGHLY recommend Clever Canine as Mandy is fantastic to work with and the group training is great as well! Bailey is a wonderful group trainer and has made socializing my anxious pup much less stressful. Thank you again guys! More...

Our experience with Clever Canine Dog Training and specifically the owner Mandy has been EXCEPTIONAL!! We rescued our dog that came in as a stray to a shelter in Detroit. The one year old pup had never been socialized and was reactive to strangers and had other minor behavioral issues. We attempted to do some private at home training with a couple of well-known training companies - but they all ended badly, and my family getting really stressed out. That's when we approached Mandy. We cannot say enough good things about how AMAZING Mandy has been. She has a very keen understanding of dogs as well as people's psychology. We signed up for the "Great in 8" program. Mandy, very expertly, guided us and our pup through 8 weeks of training and several offline discussions on the phone and email. Today, our pup is EXTREMELY well behaved. Mandy and her team have a lot of compassion for dogs. She always advocates for the dog and taught us how to understand our pup's mindset and provide the best care for the dog. By the end of the training, we were much more closer to our pup, and he was much more integrated with our family. We went from being stressed out every day to being a joyful household within two months - it has been miraculous to say the least!! Their day training service (day care + training) is a very good supplement to the Great in Eight program and our pup LOVED going there! I would whole heartedly recommend anyone with any kind of dog behavioral issues (or who just need obedience training) to take their dog to Clever Canine Dog training - and experience the same amazing results that we have.

Response to the owner: This rating was left at 3:19 am because I was scarred from my experience with one of your trainers who abused my dog. So yeah, it's really not that "strange". You guys know exactly what happened. Years later and my dog struggles with severe anxiety and it was at the hands of one of your trainers. He may have been fired but you can't undue what has been done and your response to my HONEST review is shameful. Own it and take responsibility. More...

I spoke with Mandy in a preliminary consultation about my dog, some concerns and potential training. We spoke for 30 minutes and determined my dog was just fine. He’s a bit spoiled and probably gets too much attention if that’s possible but he doesn’t need the training they offer. It’s clear Mandy’a focus is on what dogs need, not just about making a sale. I appreciate her honestly. More...

I can't speak highly enough of Clever Canine. Their trainers are literally dog whisperers who can turn the most stubborn dog into an obedient companion. My dog came into training barking his head off at every other dog and the trainer, Bailey, literally just walked over and said "Be quiet" and he stopped. I've never been so shocked in my life! Definitely worth the money for the miracles they perform over there! More...

Highly recommend Cleaver Canine. I brought my 5 month old lab there for the 3 week boot camp and her progress is amazing. She will heel, sit, come, go in place, stay, wait, fetch, give, release and leave it . Mandy took great care of my pup and sent me weekly updates on her progress. If your on the fence about sending your pup there, get off it because you won’t be disappointed. More...

We received great tips and feedback on ways to move forward with our dogs training! I would highly recommend Clever Canine Dog Training's services. More...

My 2 year old dog Meg is very hyper and destructive if not crated. So we don’t have to crate her 5 days a week while at work, we take her to Clever Canine Doggy Daycare a couple times a week. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Many of the employees love our dog and they take good care of her when we travel too. There are suites available for boarding and Meg does very well while we are away. She has many friends among the staff and other dogs. Clever Canine, keep up the good work! More...

You can tell everyone on the team loves dogs and they develop connections with the dogs. We always feel comfortable knowing Ranger is being well taken care of whether he is going to daycare or boarding. More...
