Dog Training, Charlotte, NC
We are committed to providing well-rounded, high-quality training for dog owners.
A well-trained dog is able to communicate and function in your home and around others. At Dogs By Andy K-9 Services, we believe training is about function, control and prevention. If you haven’t invested in training for your dog in the past, allow us to tell you some of the benefits that come with professional dog training. The first is the ability to trust your dog when he or she is in your home. A dog that hasn’t been trained on what is acceptable behavior may act in ways you don’t like, but they don’t understand that what they are doing is wrong. The safety of your pup is also a crucial factor in choosing to invest in professional training. When your dog is trained to listen to your commands and respond to them, the risk of injury or becoming involved in a dangerous situation goes down.
Dog training can also establish a fundamental and core connection between you and your furry friend. Dogs need boundaries to understand what behavior is okay and what is not. Their nature dictates that need, so forming that connection can help you build a better relationship and encourage trust between you and your pup. Professional dog training can also make it easier to take your dog out in public, since you will feel confident in how they will behave.

Teaching Necessary Functions
We teach basic commands that are necessary functions for your dog’s safety and the well-being of people and other animals. Commands are important at all times for a variety of reasons. If your dog is well trained, you have the control and that is important if you are a responsible dog owner.
A well trained dog is also able to communicate and function in your home and around others. Training is about function, control and prevention.
Consider the following: A well-trained dog always responds to a command — not just some of the time or part of the time. Why is this important?
- A dog cannot SIT and jump on a person at the same time.
- A dog cannot SIT and STAY and run out the door into traffic at the same time.
- A dog that obeys the HEEL command will not pull you down the street.
- A dog that responds to DOWN and STAY can enjoy being in the room with you without interfering with your mealtime or guests.
- A dog that COMES WHEN CALLED is not going to have to be chased.
Environmental Issues such as Barking, Unwanted Jumping, and Climbing on Furniture are also taught during our training.
Six Basic Commands
A well-trained dog is not a destructive dog. Destruction is expensive! PLEASE do not hit or yell at your dog. Even if you are frustrated because of your dog’s behavior. Here’s why…
Verbal and physical abuse can never be a part of the relationship between you and your dog. Abuse destroys love and trust in dogs as well as people. How is a dog going to learn if he is afraid of your hands, your feet or your voice? Why should a dog “Come” to you if he is frightened? Yes, yelling will scare him. Your dog’s hearing is five-times better than yours. If you are yelling at him and he cowers, it’s not guilt. He is afraid of the sound.
We teach you and your dog six basic commands that will help ease your frustration and help your dog better understand you. Commands taught include:
- Place – The “Place” command teaches your dog to go to and stay at a pre-determined “place” within the house. This command is very useful when entertaining or when delivery people are at your door.
