Pet 'N Play makes us feel safe. We are working professionals and it's hard to be home mid-day. It's wonderful to know Bea is in good hands. To her and to us, Pet 'N Play is like family. We are so glad we found you!!" Jose and Cesar

Local Dog Trainers,

Dog Training Tips and Videos

There is a lot of information on how to train your dog, from using a local trainer to online instruction to do-it-yourself. And this section by no means covers everything. But it is a great start!


Looking for an actual, in-person dog trainer? There are Ann Arbor dog trainers, several dog trainers just outside Ann Arbor, and some mobile dog trainers (they come to you!). The listing at the bottom of this page lists local trainers in the greater Washtenaw County area, including a pet first aid training company. The listing (in alphabetical order, starting with Ann Arbor dog trainers) includes their location and contact information (just click on their name to go to their web site), and whether they offer in-your-home or one-on-one training (and the areas they serve, if applicable). Note that costs can vary a good deal between trainers, and the techniques they use may also vary from trainer to trainer. So do your homework, talk to them, and find someone you are comfortable with.


Prefer online training? There are a lot of resources available online, and we have listed only a few of the better ones that we are aware of. This includes two of the most popular trainers around, Cesar Millan and Victoria Stilwell. Again, costs vary. And don't be afraid to check out others you may find.


For those of you that like to do-it-yourself, we have included some dog training videos. The videos are from Victoria Stilwell, and the tips are from the ASPCA.


And finally, we list a couple of Pet First Aid training resources.


If you are a local trainer and are not on our list, please contact us at We are happy to include you! Or if you know of a trainer that is not on the list, or one that is on the list that is no longer in business, please let us know.


We hope you will find something that works best for you. Good luck!

Pet First Aid Training


There are a number of online companies that offer pet first aid training. The only one we are familiar with is the American Red Cross. They offer an online only pet first aid training and certification class for $25. They no longer seem to offer an in person option.


The only other local pet first aid training we are aware of is offered through Huron Valley Ambulance. But you may want to call around to the local vet offices, they might offer classes or know someone that does.

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too." Samuel Butler
