One-on-One Dog Training

Dog training in Charlotte and the surrounding area is easy with DSL! One-on-One dog training is a great way for you and your dog to learn the common language.  We offer courses in basic and advanced obedience as well as in agility training and Canine Good Citizen! Let our professional dog trainer teach you that language!

-Our basic/puppy obedience course teaches both you and your dog the fundamentals. You and your dog will learn the commands for “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “down”, “heel”, “leave it”, and “off” and can modify the sessions to suit your individual needs including loose leash training, mouthiness, etc.                                

-Our advanced obedience and behavior modification courses are based on the same principles; establishing roles and learning a common language so each partner knows what is expected. Growling, snapping, food aggression and other unwanted behaviors can all be addressed with the same basic ideas.

At DSL: $300 for 6 sessions    

In-Home/Community: $600-$675 depending on drive

***All payment is due at time of booking, in full, and is non-refundable. We block the trainer’s schedule for 6 weeks and therefore cannot hold spots without payment nor give refunds for cancelling.***

Boot Camps

Sometimes One-on-One training just isn’t the best fit. Whether your dog needs some extra help learning the basics, or learning to overcome a behavioral issue (ie. separation anxiety) our bootcamp service might be the way to go.

Taking all the same principles and practices of our One-on-One dog training philosophy, we bring your dog into our facility to board and train for 3 or 5 weeks so that they can learn the “common language”. Bootcamp dogs receive multiple training sessions throughout the day and all the benefits of doggie daycare!
