Professional Dog Training Benefits Your Dog — and You

A well-behaved dog is more pleasant to be around, for you, your family, and for others. Here are some of the differences training can make:

  • You’ll see improved behavior & obedience at home and in public.
  • Your dog will get along better with other dogs and people.
  • You’ll notice reduced aggression so you can worry less when your dog interacts with others.
  • You’ll enjoy a stronger bond with your dog as you learn to work together better.

Our Dog Training Process

We’ll start with an initial consultation and evaluation so we can understand you, your dog, and what you are hoping to achieve. Then we’ll create a customized training plan to help your dog get there.

Your dog will board with us during the program. This gives us the necessary time and space to develop the one-on-one bond of trust that is the foundation of effective training. We offer a 5-week board & train program, or a weekly board and train option.

At Kanupp Kennels, we don’t use any training tactics that involve forceful or hurtful discipline. Instead, all training is based on love, trust, and praise as rewards for your dog's success.

Come and see why we were voted one of the best kennels in Catawba County for dog training. Click below or give us a call to schedule an evaluation.
