Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to start training?

As soon as possible! It is a lot easier to form new habits than fix old ones. Many behavioral issues that we see in dogs are caused by boredom so the sooner you can start forming new habits, the closer you will be to living optimally with your dog.

How long are the lessons?

Each lesson is 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the individual dog and owner. The length of the lesson is dictated by the stamina of the dog, how quickly new concepts are learned, how many questions are asked, etc.

How many times a day do I need to practice?

We recommend aiming for 2 to 3 short (10 to 15 minute) sessions per day. Do not feel limited to training during structured sessions, though! As you interact with your dog throughout the day, feel free to reinforce desirable behaviors. And of course, make sure to get in some unstructured walking time and play sessions.

When and where are group classes?

Group classes are scheduled 1 to 2 times per week at various locations around the Fort Mill, Rock Hill, and greater Charlotte area. To accommodate various schedules, we typically offer one weekday class and one Saturday morning class every week.

Group classes allow for owners and dogs to practice working around both controlled and uncontrolled distractions. Whether your dog is friendly to a fault or unsure about other dogs, working in a group environment challenges both dogs and owners to take their skills to the next level. Group classes are a great place to work around like-minded individuals who are working towards a shared goal – to better their relationship with their dog.
