My goal at Companion Canines is to help your dog become a happy, well-balanced and reliable companion. I work to find out what training methods work best along with giving you information to make you and your dog’s lives better. Scientific learning theories have proven dogs to be a social- and community-driven animal, each with their own specific language.

All of the training done with Companion Canines is built around positive reinforcement as well as non-physical punishment. Through mental and physical activity, the goal for your animal is to become a well-balanced family member. As a result, your dog will not be lonely or develop destructive behavior when left alone, and will be better behaved during human and social interactions.

Dogs won’t always be perfect, but they certainly deserve to be happy!

Interview with Ron Jolly (WTCM 103.5 | 93.5), November 7, 2018.

Feel free to contact me@810-969-2956. Serving from Suttons Bay to Gaylord to Houghton Lake and beyond. I welcome dogs from other states too!!

My family and I have been taking our dogs to Janet for 5+ years now for training and boarding- she is truly the BEST. Janet is so spot on with her training and direction not only with dogs, but owners as well. Janet has extensive knowledge about dog training and health. I look to her for any advice related to my dogs. Janet is experienced, hard working and professional. My dog and I leave her home feeling comfortable and confident to conquer anything! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

My aunt is a dog whisper I swear! She is so great with animals! I couldn’t imagine anyone better to train or board your dog with.
