Dog Training in Orlando and Central Florida

In our opinion, dogs learn best from other dogs that they observe. When introduced into a group of relaxed, well behaved, and working canines, they see that it is OK to trust a human or another dog. Not many dog trainers have a sizable pack of their own dogs working as “canine instructors”. We have a big group – thirty dogs of various breeds, sizes and temperaments. They will help your anxious or aggressive dog to relax and learn quite a few good manners.

While rehabilitating and training the dogs, we also work with the owners. At the end of the training program we present them with easy to follow instructions. This is why our dog training methodology provides visible, lifelong results.

Curtis and Meredith have trained thousands of dogs from all over the USA…

…as well as dogs from Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Colombia, and even Afghanistan!

Is it too late to train my dog?

Often times, owners come to us as a last resort after trying out other dog obedience training schools. We have even had cases where we rehabilitated animals recommended by a vet to be euthanized due to extreme levels of aggression. Without endangering ourselves or our K9 pack, we have introduced these dogs to a new life full of structure, rules, and human leadership. The transformation was remarkable. We have achieved these amazing results by providing the dog with what they were lacking – human guidance.

We have many wonderful success storied about our K9 students. The most memorable is a story about Charlie, a stray dog from the Dominican Republic. He used to live on a street, tied to a tree, abused and neglected. His future “mom” was there on a Peace Corps mission. She couldn’t pass by a suffering dog. After spending a lot of her savings, she was able to bring Charlie to the United States. But the reunion was far from being euphoric. Charlie has developed mistrust for humans and severe aggression. When we first met Charlie, he was a growling aggressive monster. With lots of patience, training, and help from our dogs, we have taught the Charlie how to control his fears and anxieties and make appropriate behavioral choices.
