May 24, 2013, Michael Burkey, an expert dog trainer and behaviorist who owns Michigan Dog Training, has developed a new service for owners to drop their dogs off for the day for training Day Camp which will transform their behavior.
Serving the Detroit metropolitan area, his specialized headquarters is located close to Interstate 275 and Interstate 96 East for easy access. The optimum training location is just north of the scenic Kellogg Park downtown district in Plymouth. The 4,000-square-foot training facility features a large training room along with a living room and kitchen to stimulate home conditions, in addition to professional offices.
Burkey, a professional dog trainer, is a search and rescue K9 handler and a former K9 police officer and social worker. He also is a board member of the Association of Humane Dog Training, a non-profit organization which promotes the safe and effective training of companion and working dogs.

Michigan Dog Trainer ready to tame pooches from new Plymouth digs
Michael Burkey, a former K9 police officer, federal officer, social worker and canine expert, has opened a dog training center in downtown Plymouth.
Burkey, who also is an expert witness in court cases involving dogs, has hired five trainers and a customer service rep into a 7,000 square-foot space at 1031 Cherry St. to staff Michigan Dog Trainer.
Inside MDT's building are two large training rooms and "Michigan's only 20 1/2-inch long Nose Work wall," says Burkey. He is also a competitive handler and volunteer behaviorist for the Humane Society of Huron Valley, the location of his first training center.
The Nose Work wall is fitted with 13 scent detection tubes for training police dogs and and such to sniff for narcotics, explosives and other illegal substances. Birch oil is also one of the scents and is used to train dogs in the sport of nose work, a sport that will soon be sanctioned by the American Kennel Club, Burkey says.
The space, a former photography studio, also has a professional white photo wall for dog pictures and videos and four offices. MDT opened July 20 and held a grand opening celebration with dogs and people on Aug. 1. It might be the only business able to claim a blind Dachshund, which performed a Nose Work demo, as part of the festivities.
Burkey says he'll use Kellogg Park and nearby "dog friendly" stores as well as Maybury Park and Proud Lake Recreational Area as an extension of the training center. While the dogs are the focus, "many times," he says, "it is also the people that need help in understanding the dog and its behavior.
