Our Board and Training Programs in a Home Environment


Welcome to Atlanta Dog Trainer LLC and our unique way of thinking, training and communicating with you and your dogs.  We do NOT use fear or pain based training methods.  It is about having a well behaved child/furry that has been taught the appropriate behavior to have in a human world We proof the exercises so  your (fur-kid) has a chance to practice those behaviors even if they are at a doggie Chunky Chez.  My dogs have bad hips and I have a ladder up to my bed for them.   My dogs are truly my kids and we have a life long loving respectful relationship! They are very respectful of me and I of them.  We are communicators whose goal are to have the family understand how your dog communicates and vice verse.   We teach through clear, consistent and motivating methods.  Whatever motivates your dog we will use, toys, games, food, scents and try and reach all their senses.  You are welcome to call anytime to discuss.  Each trainer only takes 3-4 dogs maximum at a time.  We ARE not a MASS production type of training place.  We are in a fun environment, your dog will be with dog loving people that volunteer hours to rehab dogs and keep them out of shelters.

It is also for dogs not suited to pet boarding kennel training, dogs that might have anxiety, or have undue stress in a dog boarding kennel environment.

Our Dog Training program in our home is suggested for dogs that have had a hard time house breaking and need to maintain their training by using the crate techniques used in our dog training school program. The training in the trainer’s home is where we work on helping dogs to be calm and obedient in many areas such as, but not limited to; kitchens, dens, bedrooms and areas where multiple guests visit. Dogs will go to our doggie daycare during the day for periods of time when they are not in training to socialize and play with other friendly dogs. They go on several nature walks a day and spend time inside with us so they can learn house manners such as not taking food off the counters. They become a part of our pack and learn to act accordingly.

We are offering a few a la carte training options that allow you to see your dog every evening or we can train your dog over a one week rather than a two week boarding period. We realize we all miss our pets and want to be near them as much as possible so we have worked up a few shorter term economical training options. However, for puppies or dogs that need training from the ground up, we will need more training time so our 2 week board and train course or other training options would be more appropriate. It also should be noted that these new programs still require you, as the pet’s owner, to do some homework to reinforce what your dog has learned with us. Our “Go Home” meeting with you will cover what you need to do to maximize your pet’s training results.       All training will be at our Farm in Alpharetta/Milton unless discussed prior to stay.
