Do you have a new canine companion who needs guidance? For some, watching a few episodes of Cesar Milan simply won’t cut it. In most cases, the need for a formal regimen of obedience training will become necessary.
Granted an A+ by the Better Business Bureau, Sportsmen has been serving the metro Detroit area since 1942. In addition to beginner classes for new dog/puppy owners, their seasoned staff can prepare more adventurous customers for advanced levels of obedience training. All courses are American Kennel Club-approved, including S.T.A.R. (Socialization, Training, Activity, and a Responsible owner) for puppy training and Canine Good Citizen (CGC) for adult dogs. Course lengths range between 4 to 6 weeks, at roughly one hour per week.
Their 7,500 square foot facility provides space and safety (with rubber padded floors) for you and your four-legged friend. Additionally, Sportsmen’s offers training in agility, rally (obstacles), tricks, and scent work. Beginner and advanced courses, as well as friendly competitive trials, are available.
Sportsmen’s Dog Training is located at 1930 Tobsal Ct., east of Dequindre and south of I-696.
Hours for classes vary, though most occur during evening hours. For information on classes and other events, contact Training Secretary Barb Popyk via email, or call 586-754-DOGS (3647).
