Finally! A Local Dog Trainer That Provides Both Owner and Dog Training in Charlotte.
It feels good to be back in Charlotte training dogs
When I started my last dog training company in Charlotte, back in 2008 we made a positive impact on the entire Charlotte dog training scene.
And We are doing it again!
Back in those days, dog trainers were almost militaristic, and nearly exclusively focused on rigid obedience. It was great for dogs in a military or law enforcement role but not so much for everyday dogs and owners who just wanted to happily live together.
I created a new way of dog training method in 2008 and called it Train as you live™.
I (and my trainers) began teaching about the dog owners’ energy, explained dogs’ emotions, and the importance of the connection between the owners and their dogs as the cornerstone of my dog training system.

Carolina’s Dog Master
The word got around quickly about “the guy who was successfully training dogs that could not be trained.” and before I knew it, I was a regular guest on WCNBC TV as “Carolina’s Dog Master.” Spending 2 years on TV helped me share my message about my dog training philosophy.
Over time, some trainers I had trained in my methods left the company and opened their own dog training companies in Charlotte. They took the philosophy and techniques we had developed with them, and just like that the Charlotte dog training scene became gentler, more loving, and more balanced.
Funny enough I did not recognize nor took any credit for any of this. Maybe because I was too busy “working” and “growing the business” to appreciate all the good work we were doing.
It took selling the business, getting away from dog training and a few years of “retirement” to truly acknowledge the real impact I & my trainers have had in the lives of thousands of dogs and their families. Right here in Charlotte
I went and did other things that retired entrepreneurs do
When I decided to come back to dog training, especially back to Charlotte where the company I sold, and at least 4 of my former employees have their own dog training companies, I wanted to create something special. Something that encompasses all the knowledge and wisdom I’ve gained from my experience training over 4000+ dogs, and also the professional dog trainers I’ve trained and supported over the years.
Dog Owner’s Academy is that company.
As we at Dog Owner’s Academy gear up for a Thanksgiving with our families, we thought we’d share some tips and fun scenarios to ensure you and your pup have a memorable holiday.
Chubby pups might be endearing to look at, but when thinking about the health of our dogs, it’s best they maintain a trim figure. Unfortunately, similar to humans, a significant number of dogs struggle with weight issues.
With Halloween swiftly approaching, neighborhoods are buzzing with preparations. While our focus might be on choosing the perfect costume or decking out our homes with eerie decorations, it’s crucial to keep our four-legged friends in mind.
