Have you adopted a puppy or dog?  Does he or she need to learn some manners? Do you need some guidance in training? Dog Obedience by Gina (D.O.G.) will come to your home and teach you how to teach your puppy or dog how to become a well-behaved member of your family. Keeping a happy and healthy relationship between your family members and your furry family members is our priority.

While obedience training can be taught at any time in your dog’s life, it is faster and much easier to train your dog as a pup. Good habits are just as difficult to break as bad habits so the sooner your dog learns proper manners, the better. Remember that training your dog is a life-long commitment. It does not end when class ends. You will always need to refresh his (and your) skills.

We will teach your dog to sit, sit/stay, down, down/stay, leave it, focus or watch, loose leash walking, heeling and most important, to come when called! We will teach him what to chew, where to eliminate, how to greet people, where to dig, when to bark and how to walk nicely on a leash. We can also address puppy nipping or bolting  out the door and almost any other behavior problems you may encounter.

Gina is an honors graduate of Animal Behavior College. Her year-long commitment to this program has provided her with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives. Her certification, education and experience provide her the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog while keeping alive the spark that makes your dog so special to you.

In addition to her certification, she is a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, has a certificate of completion in pet CPR and First Aid and is bonded and insured through The Business Insurers of the Carolinas.

Whether you have just adopted a new puppy who needs to learn from the ground up or have had a dog for years with some new or old “issues”, we would love to work with you and your family.
