Dog Training Classes in Canton, MI

Cloud and Venita

Due to a health crisis I am not teaching classes or taking on private training customers at this time.

Hi, Welcome to my website!

My name is Venita Bentley CNWI™, ABCDT.  I am a force Free Trainer and use positive reinforcement and  clicker training techniques. I do not believe in using “corrections”.  If the dog isn’t getting it right, the trainer is doing something wrong and needs to simplify the training layers. Let me help you get a handle on your pet’s problems with a personalized training plan.  Over the past fifteen years I have been a K9 Nose Work Instructor, Dog Day care owner, Volunteer Behavior Helpline Counselor for HSHV, Pet Trainer/Behavior Consultant, Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, Therapy dog trainer & handler, volunteer dog walker, and dog foster parent. I am proud to have personally rescued dogs off the streets of Detroit, Dearborn, and Southeast Michigan.

I am an Animal Behavior College Dog Trainer and A Mentor Trainer for ABC.  As a Mentor Trainer, I have ABC students that attend and participate in my classes.  As the students progress through their program , they begin to take an active role as assistants in my classes.  Therefore, you will get a lot of one on one attention when attending my group training classes.

My services include in home private training/behavior modification, feline phone consultations , private training and group training classes in Belleville. I have experience with fears and phobias, separation anxiety, aggression, and barking.
