    Hi Kathryn!
    We were referred to you by Marcia at Northville Dog Training. We would like to talk with you about private sessions with our 12 month-old Black Lab-Coon hound. He has been through basic and intermediate classes but we need to learn how to work with his nose and possibly train him for other activities like S & R. He’s a sweet and beautiful dog and very fast. Please call me 734-678-5584

    Hi Kathryn – We we’re referred to you by Marcia Cavan. We have a 7 mo old Havanese who completed Puppy Kindergarten with Marcia. He needs additional training. Marcia said you might be willing to do a home visit and make recommendations on further training steps. Please let me know if this is something you are willing to do. We live in Adrian, MI

    Hi Kathryn!
    I have a nine month Papillon. I would like to compete in AKC Scent Work Trials. My friend Linda Owens recommended I work with you. I’m very excited about getting started.
    I could do classes at Northfield Dog Training.
    Please put me on your Beginner Class list or let me know how else I can start.
    Thank you,


    1. Hi Margaret, I will be starting a new beginner class within the next month or so at Northfield., I can add you to the wait list. Alternatively, I have a beginner class that meets at 5:30 on Wednesday in Fenton. You could join that one starting next week–you would have only missed one class. I also do privates, mostly at Northfield. Best, Kathryn
