Puppy Training Classes Grand Ledge MI

Dog Obedience Training in Grand Ledge, Michigan

Nana-N-Paws offers a variety of training classes to suit every need. We have everything from basic obedience to advanced competition level training. We also offer classes in agility, conformation, and Good Citizenship Certification preparation. Classes are held in our 4,000 square foot, heated/air-conditioned training facility, complete with a UV air purification system and padded flooring. We also have a large outdoor training area.

If your schedule does not work with our group classes, we also offer Play n’ Train, where we can do a private training session with your pet during a daycare visit, or Stay n’ Train, where we do private daily training sessions during their sleepover.  The trainer will then schedule time with you to review what your dog has learned and how you can continue with the training at home.  All of our dog obedience training classes are taught by highly qualified instructors who love, honor and respect the bond between people and their pets.

In addition to the owner, Patty Lance, who has over 40 years of training experience, we are pleased to have the following expert trainers on staff here at Nana-N-Paws:

Tinetha Parker

Tinetha Parker has been training dogs since 1993 and has rehabilitated countless dogs deemed untrainable, fearful and/or aggressive, including those ordered to be euthanized in shelters. She has often been the only chance they have left just before either being surrendered or euthanized. She has worked with dogs in Obedience, Personal Protection, Agility, French Ring, Good Citizenship, Rally, and Dock Diving.

Tinetha is also the Head Pack Leader and Behaviorist at Nana-N-Paws, where she has been integral in developing behavior modification processes and training staff members to be consistent and well informed. Her many years of experience have taught her various breed-specific strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and learning styles. She specializes in all-breed training and realizes that each dog and owner are unique with their own individual training needs. She approaches each dog and owner as individuals and gears the training to meet their needs. Tinetha has a special gift with animals and understands their needs and what it takes to earn their trust and respect.

I first met Patty Lance when I needed help in training my two very young, exuberant Golden Retrievers. Patty’s passion for dogs radiates from her. I’ve watched her countless times, with her characteristically unflappable calm wisdom, maintain control over situations involving several dogs of varying heights, weights, and energy levels. In fact, I believe she may even have a sixth sense in being able to read what a mischievous dog’s next move is going to be even before he does it! So when I found out she also operated Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center, I was ecstatic. I had never left my “boys” overnight or boarded with anyone. I mean, we all have hopes, wishes, and expectations of whom we would wish to entrust our fur kids to, right? My personal wish list: I don’t “crate” my Goldens and I appreciate someone who believes that dogs have individual needs and that they shouldn’t all be lumped together. I want my dogs to receive firm but loving care. I always envision the perfect center to have space with lots of playtime for my dogs with others of equal energy. And, of course, I expect my dogs to be fiercely protected from harm. When my dogs are in Patty’s care, I find all these are met and more. I highly recommend Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center for your dogs. Oh, and if you’re having a specific behavioral issue with your dog and need some great advice or assistance, Patty’s many years of training experience can be invaluable in helping you turn things around.
So whether I’m dropping off my “kids” for a day of play while I’m at work or on sleepovers when I’m out of town, my mind is at rest knowing they’re having a great time at Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center. My only worry when Mac and Rusty stay at Nana’s? That when I stop by to pick them up, they won’t want to come home with me!

Meet Cooper, our now six month old Golden Retriever. My husband and I knew from the day we got Cooper that we wanted to train him properly (like every dog should be). We set out to find the perfect trainer! My husband found Patty through a co-worker. WOW! What a great find! Cooper started classes at 11 weeks old and continued personal training (at our house) for six weeks. Without Patty as our trainer, we don’t think we could have trained him on our own. She taught us that patience is the key to successful dog training and she made herself readily available for any questions or concerns that we had about Cooper. Hands down Patty is the best dog trainer that we know of in the area and we would recommend her to anyone. Cooper loves her and is very excited to be started on the next stage of dog training with her. Thank you, Patty for all your hard work and dedication as we train our Cooper to be the best dog we’ve ever had in our family!

I have been working with Patty Lance for about a year now. My husband and I adopted a Welsh Corgi, Bella, from a rescue and she came with more issues than we had bargained for. Our dog had very severe separation anxiety, along with issues with the blinds, the trash and keys. Patty came to my house for on site training and within a couple of weeks we saw a complete turnaround with Bella. She was finally bearable to live with…it was like she had a visit from the dog whisperer! Not only has Patty helped make our house more pleasant, she also has provided us with freedom and peace of mind when going out of town. When we have to leave our furry babies, Patty is the only person I trust to leave them with. I know that when they are with her, it’s like they are at home. She is the most loving, trustworthy, reliable person available to watch anyone’s dog! She truly treats them like one of the family. I highly recommend Patty to anyone who is looking to train or board their dog. She’s just so good a what she does!
