Samantha has helped me completely transform my English bulldog, Tucker. Before training with her he had zero boundaries, selective hearing, and loved to harass company as they were walking in the door. He’s now a well-behaved boy that everyone can enjoy!
You adore your dog, but the struggle is real.
OUT: Spontaneous post-work meetups, to relax and sip a Pilsner
IN: Late-night online shopping, to replace your shredded pillows
Every walk becomes a battle of wills, with your shoulder socket paying the price. And coming when called? That's just a made-up thing, like honest politicians, or jackalopes, right?
Somehow, those DIY training videos didn't prepare you for the real-life struggles of raising a dog.
But fear not, my friend!
We believe in creating a dog that wants to work for you—through fun, engaging training sessions—versus “making” your dog work for you. Yuck.
We believe your dog deserves clear, consistent training. And that with some effort—on our part, your part and your pup’s part—making better choices will become second nature.
We believe you deserve to feel calm and confident when handling your dog. You’ll get the tools you need today, and the support you need tomorrow. So you’re never stuck wondering how to handle a situation.
We believe a well-trained dog is a happy dog, because doors begin to open and life suddenly looks bigger. Come along to the coffee shop? Sure! Weekend trip to Wrightsville Beach? Why not?!
Because, ultimately, we believe that if there's one thing your dog loves, it's being with you. And food. And squirrels.

Hear why Emily chose A Dog's Life Training, and how her life with golden-boy Dwight has been transformed.
With a variety of available options, you can choose the training solution that’s right for you.
Not sure? Don’t worry. During your initial in-home evaluation, we’ll chat about your goals, your frustrations, your lifestyle, and the kind of outings you’d love to go on together with your dog. Based on all that info, you’ll get a recommendation for the best path forward.
Samantha adapts to whatever we as owners need, and the ability to have unlimited training is amazing. Sometimes I don't think I'm thebest owner, but she's been so patient with me. The process has been fantastic, and Jack has dramatically changed.
Once your dog can handle the distractions of daily life, you’re invited to join our monthly adventure-training excursions, to places like:
• Downtown Charlotte
• U.S. National Whitewater Center
• Sycamore Brewery
• Lake Norman
• Crowders Mountain State Park
• Stuart Creek Greenway
• Lake Wylie
• Sherman Branch Mountain Biking Park
These group outings are designed to help you learn advanced skills with your dog—like how to handle that pleading feed-me-tacos look.
…except for your dog, who—inconveniently—wasn't born speaking English.
So you won't find any judgment from me if your DIY training efforts have gone a litttttle bit off the rails.
Please, set aside your anxiety about scheduling an evaluation.
You haven't screwed up, failed your dog, or any of the other heartbreaking things I've heard from frustrated pet-parents.
We’ll get you back on track, with a training plan designed just for you.
