What is life time support?
All our programs have life time support. Life time support means that for the rest of the dog’s life we are here to assist you. weather you need refresher lessons or your dog is exhibiting an unusual behavior, we will help you! Part of our life time support includes access to our free board and train refresher group class.
Does the dog have to wear the E-collar for the rest of its life.
No, the E-collar is a tool like any other and eventually does come off. once the dog has generalized the good behavior they’ve learned, the collar goes away. However, we always recommend clients keeping the E-collar on their dog to reinforce and/or punish behaviors. It is also recommended to have it on when going to distracting areas as a means of having 100% control of your dog . It’s always better to be safe than to be sorry!
Do you spend time teaching the owner everything the dog has learned?
Yes! that is the most important part of training and typically the hardest. Our “Turn over” is conducted the day we drop off the dog back to you. The turn over is typically 2-3 hours long and we will explain to you everything the dog has learned, we will demonstrate it and then we will have you practice it!
How much time for training do we have to set aside a day for training?
That is up to you! remember the more training you do the better your dog will be. You can turn everything into training.
Cooking? watching tv? eating dinner? cleaning the house? have company over?
put your dog on place! yes that is training!
do you take your dogs on walks? guess what, you are training!
Don’t think of training as something that is going to consume your time, involve it into your normal life style!
Do you offer basic obedience?
No, we don’t offer anything basic nor are we a basic place. All of our training is aimed to the same off leash standard! having 100% recall and control of your dog!
What methods do you use?
We are balanced trainers and utilize all four quadrants of operant conditioning as needed by each individual dog.

Having a working breed is no simple task. Each of our trainers own one or more high energy dogs that have come to be a direct reflection of us as trainers. They keep us motivated and constantly push us to be the best trainers we can be. We pride ourselves in bringing you the best dog training that North Carolina provides.
