Dog Training at Your Home

For owners who have the time and desire to commit to taking an active role in the dog training process, consider dog training at your home. Carolina Dog Training, LLC will train you and your dog in the familiar environment of your own home and neighborhood, including local hot spots! Pet stores, greenways, and dog walking sites are a few good examples where we will work together to achieve a customized list of your goals.

In this program, you are given everyday homework to complete as both a firm foundation is built, and skills are mastered in typical life settings containing triggers that would typically elicit excitement and distraction. The end result is that your dog will learn to pay attention and develop solid self-control in everyday life environments confidently and reliably, both ON and OFF-leash!

Private, one-on-one instruction with your entire family working together consistently is the focus of this program. A team approach is created and practiced in your home and / or in a local community park setting where typical distractions are often found. Your dog will learn to pay attention and comply reliably and consistently with rules and boundaries that you set and reinforce as a loving, kind, fair and firm leader. Your dog will learn to trust your leadership and become a cooperative member of your “pack” as you fulfill his or her needs and balance is created. Dog’s communicate mostly with body language and energy. Therefore, you will learn to “speak dog”. And, you, as leader, will learn to “read” your dog’s body language and communicate clearly and effectively and in a way that your dog understands as you foster a relationship that includes both love and respect, trust and harmony.
