Quality Dog Training
With Jim Blau
Mid-Michigan K9 Academy is a dog training academy dedicated to providing your furry friend with the best training possible. In just one week, we guarantee a well-trained pooch to enjoy casual public outings with.
My name is Jim Blau, and I’m here to help teach your dog good behavior. My training method involves a combination of balanced and positive reinforcement-based learning techniques. This makes training exciting and fun for your dog and makes them want to do better.
Let’s start helping your best friend maintain good behavior and adapt to your current lifestyle.
7-Day Doggy Bootcamp
For seven days and nights, your dog will undergo an immersive program designed to change the way he thinks. From following his own impulses to jump up, pull on the leash, ignore your come commands, and generally be obnoxious, he will learn to engage with you and seek your approval. I use balanced training methods with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and engagement. $1000 All Breeds and Sizes.
14-Day Doggy Bootcamp
For those wanting to polish their dog’ behavior a little more, they can extend their pup’s training for another seven days. The first seven days are great for eliminating some unwanted behaviors, such as leash pulling, and putting the dog on the path to engagement. The second week can really lock in the newly learned positive behaviors and reinforce hard-to-master commands such as recall. $1750 All Breeds and Sizes.
10-Day Aggression Program
Is your dog aggressive to other dogs or people? This program is an intensive deconstruction of the dog’s unwanted aggressive behavior, using remote collars and advanced heeling and recall work.
All programs include video progress reports, tools—like leashes, training collars, gentle leaders, treats, food—and an end of session coaching session where I show you how to keep these good behaviors flowing and the unwanted behaviors in the past. $1500 All Breeds and Sizes.
One On One Personal Training
One-on-one personal instruction for you and your dog from a skilled trainer. Lessons designed to meet your specific needs, and cover topics such as recall, manners, impulse control, reactivity, and basic obedience. Five weekly one hour sessions for $500.
In the Saginaw area we will come to you for at home training sessions. These at home lessons cover your household specific needs as well as gives you the owner the opportunity to see first-hand the results in the comfort of your own space. $200 for first session, $150 every lesson after

what They’re Saying
“Jim did a board/train for our puppy Jack while we were on vacation. He was a good puppy before we left but we came back to a different animal; in a wonderful way! The positive improvement in Jack’s behavior and consistency was amazing!
While we were on our vacation, we got regular written written and video updates which were comforting to us and fun to show the kids that Jack was also having a great time.
Jim clearly loves dogs and has a calm, collected presence that commands their respect enabling him to make quick and substantial improvements in obedience.
We highly recommend Jim and MidMichigan K9 Academy!”
