Welcome to Northfield Dog Training

Northfield Dog Training offers weekly dog training classes at our southwest Ann Arbor facilities. Our instructors, dog trainers who have all been teaching dog training classes for a minimum of 10 years, have a combined 85+ years of experience. Our big building was custom built for dog training activities and has the best cushioned floor in the area. We have a large variety of breeds training with us, including many mixed breeds.

What's Happening @ NDT


Terry Jacobus, of Pawzitively Positive, is teaching her classes at NDT on several evenings a week in the small building and Saturday afternoons in the big building. Among other offerings, she teaches Treibball, Nosework, Canine Freestyle, and C-WAGS classes. See her website for more information.

Important Announcements


June 30, 2020 update While we certainly plan to reopen for numerous group training classes eventually, Adele (who owns and lives on the property where the buildings are) is still not comfortable having large numbers of people on her property and in the buildings at the same time.

Adele has started up OUTDOOR Proofing and Novice Practice classes on Tuesday morning and Proofing on Thursday morning for up to 8 people per class. We are holding the classes in the large fenced yard, with all participants and instructor wearing masks, which are optional but strongly encouraged.

We are working to start an OUTDOOR Puppy Kindergarten class sometime in mid-July and some older puppy and dog Jumpstart classes in early August, days and times to be determined. These will all be OUTDOORS, weather permitting.

The best thing you can do is to sign up for our Mailchimp newsletter (see next entry for the link), which we will use to notify you about when class sign ups are available.
We understand that you are eager to start or resume training with your dog. We all want to start some return to normalcy, but it will be a while for that, unfortunately.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. Stay safe!
