Atlanta Professional Dog Training

We are located in Northeast Georgia in the country an hour north of downtown Atlanta. We are serviced by Hartsfield’s Atlanta International Airport. We have continuously been in business both breeding and training since 1975. Our facility is second to none and we service customers worldwide. Unlike most trainers we do have an indoor training area. It enables our staff to train in the summer without your dog being subjected to extreme heat, rainy weather as well as winter.

We offer Full-service Training in both Basic and Advanced courses for pets, competition AKC and Schutzhund dogs (now known as IPG and VPG) as well as Police and Service dogs. Our owners still compete at the highest levels of Local, Regional, National, and International competitions (Please see About Us).

WE ARE NOT Inexperienced Dog Trainers with a limited amount of training in our craft. Our results have been proven in real life and high stress situations.

We offer Private Lessons and Board and Train programs as well as problem correction to be determined by consultation.

Our dogs proudly serve individual owners, as service dogs, members of law enforcement and the competitive working dog community.

Client dogs that have graduated from our courses get free refresher courses while boarding their dogs as well. We train all dogs from small to large.

Courses Offered by Private Lessons or Board and Train

This is only an overview. Specific training for each dog is designed after an owner consultation and evaluation of the dog.

Puppy Foundation

Puppy Foundation –

It’s important to lay a solid foundation for our pups. Starting at 8 weeks old puppies begin to “learn,” and in many cases, misinterpret our expectations.
By beginning training in this critical stage, we’re able to mold our dogs’ behavior, as opposed to modifying them.
Puppies have a small window of development that we like to call the “imprinting stage.” This is the time where most knowledge is consumed. Imprinting takes place between the ages of 8 weeks and 6 months. This is the best time to shape your dogs’ temperament and disposition, made possible through effective communication. To avoid conflict between you and you pet.
In most cases, the undesirable behaviors our dogs exhibit are due to miscommunication. Before we can correct any specific behavior, we must first establish a common line of communication. Once we are able to communicate our expectations effectively, we can begin to address behavioral issues. Clarity in communication is vital.

Public exposure and manners – 

All dogs have to observe their own space and exhibit manners. Jumping on anyone is not normally accepted. Mouthing on many breeds is an issue that is addressed as it is one of the most common problems in pups. Dogs have to be exposed to many environmental conditions; public exposure, slippery floors, crowds and strangers etc. This is addressed in this course.

Dog training

General Obedience –

The ability to listen to an owner’s command not only makes your life more enjoyable but may save your pets’ lives. In this course pulling on the leash, protesting and avoidance are addressed. The pup is trained in basic obedience such as, heeling on a leash while paying attention to the owner, automatic sit when stopping, sit, down, stay, recall and place. This is done with distractions on leash.

Advanced Obedience – 

Depending on the client’s specific needs this course offers off leash obedience. The dog will be expected to work off leash while under distraction and to “own the commands.

Competition Heeling for Owner and Dog –

Whether you plan to compete with your dog in AKC, IPG or other sports complete obedience at an impeccable level is expected. You and your dog will be expected to perform as a team. Your performance will be trained as well. This level of training is not understood by most trainers as they have not actively competed. We have been successful at the highest level of International competitions both here and abroad.
