Courteous Canine Dog Training
Positive dog training, at home! Serving Charlotte, Waxhaw, Lake Wylie, Fort Mill and the rest of the country via Zoom!

Courteous Canine employs positive, reward-based training methods. Their focus is to teach the pup the desired behavior in a given situation, and then reward generously, rather than to focus on correcting “wrong” behavior. Dogs repeat behaviors that are rewarding, and avoid behaviors that are not! By learning how to manage reinforcements in your dog’s life, you help teach your dog to offer certain behaviors in pursuit of rewards and privileges. Your trained dog will be a pleasure to have around and will enjoy a stronger bond with your family. More at
