Charlotte Certified Dog Trainers

Another crucial factor is education. Your dog wants to please you, but until you he’s been trained, he does not know how. We won’t just train your pet; we’ll give you an understanding of his nature and behavior so you can understand the why as well as the how of each technique.

Jason & Red
Dog Trainer

I can’t wait to help you! Dogs don’t sit, stay, or heel because they think it’s the right thing to do. They do it because those habits have been ingrained through training. I’ll work with you to hone your training until good habits are second nature for you and your pet. Together, we’ll develop the deepest possible relationship between you and your dog with the least amount of tension.

Chris & Leyna
Dog Trainer

I want you to get as much joy out of your fur family as I do! I take pride in providing pet parents with individual attention and professional instruction rooted in the science of animal behavior. My goal is to help you better understand your dog so he or she can be not only a lifelong companion, but a true best friend.

Happy Clients

What a transformation in our beloved Yorkiepoo! We tried two trainers prior to reaching out to Jason. I truly wish we... had contacted him first. Our furbaby was transformed from a nervous, biting, non-stop barking, disobedient dog to a well-behaved obedient dog. We could barely take her outside and many days could not even make it to the end of our driveway before she would see something or sense something and begin barking incessantly. After working with Jason for 2 weeks, we can now enjoyably walk around our entire neighborhood and encounter people, dogs, cars, deliveries and lawn equipment. Our dog is focused on us and her "job" or command and not hyper focused on her surroundings. She is building trust and focusing on us and not stressing out at every sound and sight. Choosing Canine Scholars is one of the best decisions our family ever made.read more

I am super impressed with Jason and his training. Other trainers I tried in the past were no better than YouTube or... online articles. Jason has very specific tips and methods which are not covered anywhere else but really make alot of sense.I'm only 2 lessons into my puppy sessions but so far I am really impressed. (and seriously I have raised another dog read alot of books and articles and have had other trainers so I am not easily impressed).read more

We absolutely loved our experience training with Jason and we are so happy with the results! Before we went through... training, walks were stressful as our pup loved to pull, pick up everything she found on the ground, jump, and play tug of war with the leash. After working with Jason for a few sessions, she walks right at our side, is less distracted, and can even play off leash! We've received several compliments from our neighbors about how well behaved she is now! Jason was flexible with scheduling and answered all of our training-related questions. We're so glad we used Canine Scholars!read more

Our experience with Canine Scholars and Jason was excellent and I highly recommend them for any training services.... Jason is very patient and knowledgeable. We wanted our golden doodle, Whiskey, to be trained off leash. Jason did an excellent job in a short time. Whiskey is fully trained and we really enjoyed our sessions with Jason.read more

Where do I even begin?! I never knew how much my dog controlled me until after the two week training program with... Chris. I was at a loss with my dog. He was overly hyper, jumped on everyone, pulled the leash, nervous biting, and of course would run away at any chance he got. After two weeks with Chris, ALL of those nasty habits were gone! My golden retriever now comes when he’s called, we have the most enjoyable walks now, he will place and stay on things. I’m truly blown away. And so so thankful! Now instead of worrying about my dog 24/7 we have fun together and I don’t have that stress that I constantly had before. The only problem I have is WHY I didn’t do this sooner?! We were lucky enough to work with Chris and have never been so pleased to work with someone. He’s knowledgeable, understanding, and very talented in what he does. I’m so thankful for canine scholars!!!read more

Why choose Canine Scholars of Charlotte NC?

It’s simple, let us show you how our dogs compare. Sure, you don’t need your dog to throw trash out or do a handstand, but you’re hiring a professional…shouldn’t their dog blow your mind? And really, don’t you deserve the best trainers – with the best training?

Do you own a dog?

I’m a dog trainer, of course I own a dog! A dog trainer without a dog is like a handyman without any tools…

I don’t need my dog to be off leash, why should I care?

Getting your dog to the next level is our highest priority. When we leave, Canine Scholars wants you to feel confident that, regardless of the situation, your dog will respond even if his best buddy in the neighborhood just stopped over to see if he could play.

When is training and how long?

Training appointments are scheduled at your convenience. Typically sessions last approximately 1hr and are on a weekly basis. After the first session you will be amazed at the results!

I don’t really need all those tricks!

Our dogs perform lots of fun tasks, maybe you don’t need all of it, but as a company we want our dogs to be the best they can possibly be…that leads to the best trainers in the Charlotte NC area.
