Dog training is essential to a dog’s growth and development. It helps build confidence, provides mental stimulation, and strengthens the bond between the owner and their pet. What has often been considered undesirable pet behavior is normal in a dog’s mind. Our specialized dog training methods teach a dog the fundamentals of right from wrong. Our board-certified dog trainer help clients understand the science behind canine learning & behaviors. Our goal is to create programs to promote positive dog behaviors using appropriate dog training methods & techniques best suited for the client and their pet.

Leash Training



Per Lesson

For puppies under six months of age, it’s recommended to teach them the fundamentals of maintaining attention and confidence while being trained. We all know puppies have a very short attention span. That is why our Walk Doctor Program introduces puppies to proper leash training and the standards of structured walking. During this program, your dog will learn the heel, wait, and release commands. This program is offered at our location or performed at your residence. Please call 678-402-5025 for a phone consultation to discuss your goals and personalized training plan. Pricing and the number of sessions are based upon in-person consultation.

Per Lesson

Does your dog pull on the leash? Does your dog sniff everywhere or like to chase things while on a leash? Does your dog mark every sign, bush, or random object on a leash? Does your dog become distracted by other dogs or people while on a leash? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you need the Walk Doctor Program! During our program, your dog will learn to wait, release, and heel commands. Our Walk Doctor classes can be performed at our location or your residence. Pricing and number of sessions based upon in-person consultation. Remember, you’re the one who takes your dog for a walk. It’s not your dog who takes you on a walk.
