We signed up for a bootcamp for our puppy and we are super impressed with Rob and TipTop. Our dog did not listen to us at all and was very nippy. She was wild and would rarely be in a calm and enjoyable state. Rob worked with her until she finally submitted. She was one of the more difficult dogs to train according to Rob but he did it. She is a border collie/collie big who is quite alpha. She was stressing our family out over whether or not she would ever calm down. Rob helped us incorporate her into our family and I highly recommend tip top! Thanks;) 😍🌷🌈🐶

Robert was amazing with training our German Shepherd puppy. She was very excitable and loved to jump, chew and pull me off my feet during a walk. He has corrected all of these with love and compassion. We have so much more fun with her now while she listens to commands, even during distractions. Thanks Robert!!

We have an English bulldog who has a mind of his own. We were asked to leave doggy daycare until he had obedience training.We did the board and train program with tip top k9. It was amazing! Rob did a wonderful job. Mongo is a completely different dog in regards to obedience. He listens and now walks without pulling. We even got a compliment on our first walk at how well trained he is.I highly recommend tip top k9 for training! The training has changed our lives for the better.

Tip Top K9 is all around awesome! They were super responsive from the start and answered any and all questions that we had. The staff is super kind and made us feel very comfortable. Our pup, Henry, just came home today and the difference is remarkable! I am so thankful we sent him to Tip Top K9.

My dog just completed boot camp through Tip Top and I must say the whole experience has been great. The trainer came to our house, explained everything on how it was going to go down. Spent a lot of time with us and was very thorough from the consultation. He has offered to help in every way possible with all of our concerns. He spent hours with us to insure we know how to maintain the training and understand what we need to do to ensure we have total control of our dog. The quality of service provided definitely deserves the 5 stars that I give. Thank you to tip top for the exceptional work invested and a special thanks to Robert who was our trainer for all your patience and hard work as we are amazed at how good our dog now listens.

We used Tip Top K9 to help address issues we had with our Great Dane Opi. He came back home today and the results are amazing! He is responsive to commands and such a joy to work with! Going on walks are going to be so much more enjoyable! Robert was very knowledgeable in all the questions and concerns that I had for him and even offered to come and help me with taking my dog out in public. They really go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. You can tell they really care about your dog and reaching your goals of training. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks so much Tip Top K9!

Robert and April are amazing! The results from their boot camp training showed a night and day difference in Beatrice. The weekly updates not only gave peace of mind but a progress report of how well she was doing. Beatrice has become much more obedient and she’s still the same sweetheart who loves her toys and cuddles! Thank you so much!!!!

Rob is a true dog whisperer! During each lesson, he trained our year old 91 lb black lab pup a new command. I still can't get over how quickly Jack learned. And let's face it, a lot of the training was teaching us what to do so we could build on Rob's foundation to continue to make Jack more fabulous. We can't walk Jack without getting multiple compliments! Thank you Rob!

Our dog suffered from anxiety after being abandoned and finding his way to us. Although he was naturally very smart and sweet, he was difficult to work with, and it was always hard getting someone to watch him if we were out of town. It was frustrating to say the least - always feeling like we didn’t have control and that he wasn’t being the best he could be. We decided to reach out to TipTop K9 and ultimately ended up doing private lessons at home, which over the course of 7 lessons has resulted in some pretty amazing progress already. After each lesson we are taught different instructions and through those have been able to get our dog headed in the right direction. He gets better every day, and it is so rewarding to see him become happier and more disciplined. We were honestly afraid we would have to give him up because of how disobedient he was with us and guests- and now we have a happier, healthier, more obedient dog.Tip Top K9 is highly recommended. They treated our dog for his individual needs, and gave us the tools to continue to help him grow. We honestly can’t explain how happy we are, and how great of an investment this is. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to take help train your dogs after working with them. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made with one of my pets. If you are interested in using them - do it.

We live in the country on acreage and have 2 dogs that each had their own issues. Hank was a stray that adopted us and his favorite pastime was chasing the UPS and Fed Ex trucks that came on our property. After 3 lessons with Rob, Hank will literally lay on the patio and watch the trucks go by without moving. Sophie is a stubborn little Yorkie-Poo and was a “runner” any time she got out of the house without her leash. After her first lesson I told Rob she would never get off the leash. Rob encouraged us to be patient but consistent with her training and she would come around. I’m very happy to say Sophie has been outside, off her leash and not run away for weeks now. Even when she’s got the freedom to run, she comes immediately when called and remains in her “place” until released. I never thought that was a possibility! And it wouldn’t have been without Rob and Tip Top K9! I can’t thank Rob enough or recommend him more highly.

Before Tip Top and Rob my 4 month Malinois was uncontrollable, and he was wrecking my marriage. He would not stop vicious barking and lunging when someone would visit.Before Rob there was no social life and I was unable to enjoy my dog due to total lack of control.Now that Rob has trained me,the wife and my Malinois, life with this dog and my marriage has been saved.No more embarrassing visits and I can actually haveA nice calm and under controlled dog that is a pleasure to have.

I turned to Tip Top K9 after I adopted a Staffie puppy and she developed dog aggression towards my other female dog. They were absolutely wonderful to work with and helped us get both girls to the point where we can manage any aggression issues. And as a bonus we can even let our cats come out of their room and be a part of family again, which had previously been impossible without endless chasing. Absolutely incredible training! I'm also a veterinarian and will be recommending them to any client who has any behavioral concerns!

Tiptop dog training are absolutely wonderful. I rescued a golden retriever who is 18 months old who had nothing done with him. He was a wild man he ran through the house knock things over grab things he tore up things he was a mess. In six lessons tiptop took him from those bad behaviors to excellent behaviors. He’s so good I can have him outside without a leash and he comes when I call and sits at my feet. There can be other dogs out there can be cars going by, nothing distract him from where he needs to be doing. He’s a very frisky boy and I never thought it would sit still but he will sit in a place for 30 minutes without moving and I can leave the room. A friend of mine referred me and I would say any dog could benefit from a few lessons. And the best part is I can take him back to a group class anytime I want to keep him in top training shape. Tip Top far Exceeded my expectations.

We have a rescue dog and wanted to travel with her on RV trips; we knew in order to do that we needed to train her. We met with Ryan, he was very knowledgeable and helpful. My wife was skeptical about the e-collar system, but after a few days we decided to give this system a try. We worked with Bethany first, she was great! Due to scheduling issues Robert took over training, we love him! Our dog knew basic commands but was hit and miss on obedience. Also, she needed training on how to walk on leash, she was always pulling and tugging, so walks were difficult.Since going to training she now walks right beside us even with all types of distractions. She knows how to place, will come when called, and is a very obedient dog. We are really looking forward to group training to help socialize her even more. I can’t say enough good things about Tip Top!!! It is worth every penny that we paid. We will now be able to travel together and hopefully will get to take her with us when we play golf!! Thank you to everyone at Tip Top!!

We have two lovable terriers but after one of them was given a steroid by their vet to heal a cough, she changed and grew aggressive and started attacking our other terrier without provocation. We refused to simply put her down, so we reached out Tip Top K9 and they helped us bring her behavior down from agression and anxiety (along with help from the vet with ant-anxiety meds) and now she's back to normal and even better behaved than before! We learned to make our dogs come to us when called, we get them to be quiet when we don't want them to bark too much and we learned out to make them heel when necessary during walks and how to stay in a place while needed. It saved our family and made our dogs relax to learn this training.

I had two very dog aggressive dogs that needed training before moving into an apartment. Rob did an incredible job helping me with this issue. They went from being extremely reactive if they even saw a dog on the other side of the street to sitting and staying in one spot while dogs walked right past them. The more aggressive of the two even let rob’s Malinois sit on the same box without even letting out so much as a growl. They walk perfectly on the leash now. They don’t try to rush out the door when someone knocks. I couldn’t be happier. I have much more trust in my dogs after this training and as a result , a stronger bond with each of them.

Tip Top K9 has been great for my dog Leia. I saw immediate improvement in her behavior after just a few lessons and she is blossoming from a sweet but wild dog to a sweet and under control dog. I highly recommend Tip Top for any dog training needs. Customer service is top notch and I couldn’t be happier with Robert and the whole team.

Robert's enthusiasm and passion for dogs, truly manifests in his training abilities. In order for your dog to be thoroughly trained, they need to feel comfortable, confident and to trust the trainers intentions. Robert is well rounded in his technique and you won't be disappointed in the outcome!

Rob was awesome with my Bowser. As he called it, he has a furry thumb. My boxer mix has done a complete 180 in the 3 lessons. I really can’t wait to go to group lessons now. I dreaded taking my dog out of the house or even letting him off leash in the back yard. Now he is off leash in the front yard with no issue. I recommend anyone on the fence with dog training... do it!!!

Rob is amazing. Highly recommend for dog training. We have two dogs that before just wouldn’t listen to commands, pulled hard on leashes and generally didn’t get along with other dogs. Within 3 weeks our boys have done a complete 180 and can now start group classes. Not only does he train the dogs, but he shows you how to continue with the training. There is a lot of at home training, or homework, but if you do the work the results are amazing.

If I could give them a 10-star rating, I would do so without hesitation! We have a 7-month old toy poodle, which gets treated like royalty. He's the first pet that I've been able to have because, typically, I have an extreme allergic reaction immediately upon contact, so he's my baby, and I'm very protective of him. When he joined the family, we noticed that he's very stubborn and mischievous, and so we decided to enroll him into a dog training program with Tip Top K9 due to their highest rating in town. Rob was our trainer, and he treated Teddy as if he was his own. Our pup has grown so attached to him that he'd sense him the moment Rob would pull into our driveway and take off running to meet him by the door! To say that Rob has done wonders with Teddy would be an understatement! During our training sessions with Rob, we realized just how highly intelligent our pup is and that his stubbornness was the real issue. We noticed a huge difference in him just after one lesson, and by the time we were done with our 6th lesson, he was able to respond to "Come," "Place," "Sit," and "Off." He used to hate going on walks and fought the leash every time. Now, he LOVES going on walks and exercises the perfect "Heel" command every time! Also, Rob has armed us with such a wealth of information that we'll now be able to continue training him on other commands and teach him tricks! He's already doing a "High Five," and we know that this is just the beginning. If you are looking for a dog trainer you can trust that will treat your dog only with kindness and support him/her every step of the way, look no further. Coming from an overly-protective dog mom, Rob is your guy. He's the best dog trainer and an overall wonderful person!

We had a fantastic experience with Rob! We were worried that we were going to have to get rid of one of our dogs because she kept fighting with the other one. Rob came into our home and helped us work out what needed to be done to fix the situation. The dogs now get along great and if either dog begins to get testy with the other, we can confidently break up with situation by calling either dog to us. He was great with both of our dogs!

Rob was an excellent trainer to our two dogs and coach for me and my wife. We were having trouble with a new addition to the family not listening. She wouldn’t come inside with the other dog, would hog the toys, and caused a couple fights due to her need for affection and attention. After the first couple days of training, we saw a night and day improvement. We aren’t the best parents as far as doing the homework assigned, but we feel we got our money’s worth! Both dogs come every time we call them. If you want them to come in from outside, there’s no hesitation from either dog. We are able to place them when our 14 month old son is eating so they don’t hover begging for food. We can even play with toys with one while the other is placed. There has been a marked improvement from both dogs and we can’t thank Rob enough for the knowledge he passed on for us to continue training and developing their skills. Thanks, Rob.

My experience with Tip Top training has been fantastic. I am pleasantly surprised at how quickly my dog was able to improve with "Come", "Place", and "Heel". My dog is a five year old Pit mix female and she was pretty well behaved before, but with the first three lessons she has improved on her ability to pay attention to my commands. I would never have believed she could improve so much in such a short period of time. She has a ways to go, but she definitely has a good foundation. Our trainer was patient, informative, and completely professional. I am looking forward to the group lessons and building on what we've learned so far.

Robert and April are the only trainers that I have left my dog Pandora with. They took such good care of her. I have seen the dogs they have trained and they are amazing. They all listen very well and my favorite trick is when they are trained to sit on top of a fire hydrant. I've seen it with my own eyes it is all possible. Robert and April are Very sincere and honest in what they will do for you. They were very involved in church and Tulsa as I'm sure they are in Troy. We love them and miss them here. Please if you're looking for somebody to help you with your dogs this is who you need to contact.

Rob at Tip Top K9 helped us completely change our puppy’s behavior in just 6 lessons. Charlie (our golden doodle puppy) used to jump on people as soon as they walked into our home, but now she excitedly greets our guests without jumping! Charlie also used to drag us on a leash during her evening walks, but now she heels like a good girl. Tip Top K9 has helped us enjoy our puppy more and more each day and we can’t thank them enough. I highly recommend Tip Top K9 for professional dog training in your area.

Some of our recent Troy and Birmingham dog training success stories:

Maverick - Golden Retriever

Maverick was so excited to find his forever home with a very nice family in Troy, Michigan when he was 4 months old! However, like all puppies, he needed a little bit of direction and a quick search for a Troy dog training professional brought Joanna and her family to our website!  Maverick  was chewing things and jumping on people as well as not letting the family know when he needed to go potty but having multiple accidents a day. We addressed all of these things during our board and train program.

Maverick’s family decided to invest in our 4 week Boot Camp. Their goal was to have the best dog and that is definitely what they got! Maverick is now able to heel during a walk, come every time he is called, and goes to the back door when he needs to go potty. The family is super happy with the results and looks forward to maintaining Maverick’s training through attending our group dog training classes in Troy.

Buckeye - Cocker Spaniel

Buckeye was a very anxious 2 year old cocker spaniel when we started training. His owner Gary was concerned about his his anxiety as well as growling and started looking for a Michigan dog training company to do some basic obedience training with.  They decided to enroll Buckeye in our 3 week Boot Camp where the pup comes and stays with our team until fully trained! 

Throughout the board and training program, our dog trainers worked on getting Buckeye to understand how to handle his anxiety as well as how to behave and now his obedience is much, much better! He can now go on walks with the owner and the growling is now under control. He is still the same love able dog but now he obeys and his owner has confidence that Buckeye is going to listen to his obedience commands.  Buckeye will need some continued reinforcement with his dog training skills but he is well on his way to being a model citizen!

Harlee - German Shepherd

Harlee came to us as a super sweet but super hyper girl!  We met Harlee’s owners at the home show and they told us they had been looking for a Troy dog training company to help them with their wild pup.  Her owner Crystle wanted to take her on walks but Harlee would never stay calm and walk with her but really enjoyed dragging her down the street. There was a lot of pulling on the leash. Their family, like alot of our Troy dog training clients decided to do a Boot Camp with us. 

We were able to keep Harlee’s personality fun and excited while working her hours a day and gaining control. She is now able to go on walks with no pulling and is able to run around off leash as she comes when called. This loveable girl now knows how to have fun and be safe so her family can enjoy spending time with her.
