Dog Training Classes

Private In-Home Training

This option is wonderful for all dog owners, and it’s convenient as we come to your home and teach you how to instill the guidelines and structure for your dog. We will work on designating the boundaries and expectations for your pet: Do you want your dog in every room and/or on the furniture? We will also teach them where they are permitted to “go potty,” where to relax when company is over, how to respond to the doorbell, and how to wait properly for meals at thresholds (gates/doorways) until released. Together we will make your expectations clear, thus making it easier for both of you to live comfortably together.

We service the following areas: South Charlotte, Waxhaw, Marvin, Weddingtion, Wesley Chapel, Matthews, Indian Trail, North Carolina, plus Indian Land and Fort Mill, South Carolina.

*Discounts available with packages  ** Travel Fee may apply
