Hoffman Haus and North Carolina K9 Academy offer basic obedience training for a well-mannered dog. Here we use a natural method of training where we want to motivate our dog to perform certain behaviors on their own instead of using force which makes the training exercises more enjoyable for you and your dog. However, there may also be certain behaviors we do not want them to perform therefore teaching them a correction comes with those behaviors. Our trainer will instruct you how to properly do this discipline in a way your dog will understand naturally and not at all be abusive. JIM our owner/trainer has over 30 years of experience in the dog world. He has trained hundreds of dogs from 8-week old puppies to elderly dogs for basic obedience and also personal protection dogs. With his personal dogs appearing in WIRED magazine and a FORD F150 commercial. You will be in excellent hands to teach your dog to be a wonderful addition to your family. Call to book an appointment to meet him and get started.

Training Options

Boarding and Training Program

Our boarding and training program are designed for those busy pet owners that would like to get a strong foundation to continue once the pet is home. In this 4 week program, we will be teaching your pet all of its basic obedience commands along with working on controlling behaviors around competing distractions. Once your dog has learned all the commands and doing well we will set a "take-home" class to train you on your dog handling skills and answer any questions. We will continue to be there for instruction if any issues may occur as unlimited follow classes are also included in the program.

Private Classes

Our private classes are designed for those who prefer a more hands-on approach and are willing to do the daily homework at home. We will meet with you and your dog once a week to instruct you how to communicate with your dog and teach them the basic obedience commands. We will also help you thru any behavioral issues you may be having with your dog.

Our doors are open
