Professional Dog Training in Mooresville, NC

We use a personalized, balanced approach of techniques, leadership and affection to help pet parents improve their relationship with their pets, in a luxurious, fun and safe environment.

POSITIVE AND PROVEN DOG TRAINING

Our balanced approach means we know how to train your dog from all angles instead of relying on one method. This allows us to personalize the training process for each dog, leading to better results. We’ve successfully trained dogs of all groups, ages, and issues.

Our system is designed to do three things:

  • Teach dogs to listen to important commands through a positive approach
  • Teach you and your family how to maintain a dog’s positive behaviors, and even improve them over time
  • Ensure that your dog retains the new knowledge through ongoing support and coaching

We provide luxurious accommodations for our training students, so they enjoy all the same benefits as our other guests.

We also pair our training lessons with daily group play sessions.  A well-exercised and happy dog is a better student. This also provides excellent socialization opportunities to further their growth.

WHY IS SOCIALIZATION SO IMPORTANT?

Socialization goes beyond your dog’s comfort around other dogs. It’s a tool to help your pup process environments and new experiences in a healthy and safe way. Though puppyhood is the most critical time, social training benefits your dog all through life.

Dog Training Outcomes

We offer one-on-one training at our facility to teach basic and intermediate obedience.  We’ll work on skills like sit, stay, come when called, place and walking calmly on a leash as well as address problem behaviors like jumping on people, bolting through doors, and play biting.

Once your dog’s training is complete, we conduct a comprehensive lesson with you to show you how to maintain and continually improve on your dog’s new good manners.

After the initial training, we can also help you keep your pup’s skills fresh with Manners Practice, which can be added on to any Lodging or Daycare visit.

Common Training Myths

  • Older dogs can’t be trained
    We can all agree that canines are smart animals. After puppyhood, it may take extra effort and repetition to break a dog’s unwanted habits, but older dogs tend to be more calm and focused than puppies.
  • My dog behaves this way to show dominance
    Many people commonly believe that their dog jumps, pulls his leash, or chews your shoes to establish dominance. In reality, your dog displays this undesirable behavior because he hasn’t learned the correct way. Proper training can re-establish an understanding between you and your dog.
  • My dog will grow out of this behavior
    If you let your puppy chew on everything because “that’s what puppies do,” you’re not doing yourself or your dog any favors. Discouraging bad behavior right away forms a solid foundation for training.
