Professional & effective dog training for real life!


Whether you’re overwhelmed by your new (bitey!) puppy, or struggling with your adult dog’s behavior, we get it. We’ve been there too.

Our training solutions include supportive group classes, personalized private training, and easy drop off day training for your new puppy.

We use force-free, positive reinforcement training methods not just because they’re effective, but because just like you, we also want the best training possible for your dog.

Group classes

Come and learn in a fun and supportive community of other dogs lovers! Our Durham-based small group classes are designed to be both fun and effective!

puppy school

Need someone else to take the leash? Drop your puppy off at our Durham training studio and a professional trainer will do the training for you!

Private Training

Training for new puppies or dogs needing work on basic manners like leash walking or coming when called, or problem behaviors like jumping and counter surfing.

Why Choose Us?

We all have an idea of what we hope life will be like with our dogs, but dogs rarely come into our lives knowing what we expect from them. That can make life frustrating at times, not just for us, but for our dogs as well.

We like to think of training as a way to provide a roadmap of our expectations for our dogs, one that is clear, predictable, and achievable.

We can help by providing:


  • Professional, credentialed trainers
  • Modern science-based methods that really work
  • Customized training plans – because every pup is an individual
  • Fear-free, reward-based training to create a LOVE for learning
  • No judgement. We’re here to help.
