OUR Mission:

At KeenDog our life's mission is to provide dog training programs that result in obedient and confident dogs that are eager, and enthusiastic to work with you - not for you. Using our unique KeenDog training method, our experienced and dedicated trainers will coach you how to have both on and off leash control of your dog in a way that results in a happy dog who looks to you for guidance no matter what environment you are in.

Our belief is that proper communication in a fun and consistent manner is the key to successful obedience training and behavior refinement. As you learn to communicate with your dog using the KeenDog Training System, you will begin to enhance your life with your dog, instead of your dog hindering it. Private one-on-one sessions, board and train, group classes and real world KeenDog activities are are aimed at building a bond with your dog who looks to you as their leader and best friend, gaining both love and respect from your dog. This innovative approach to dog training will ensure a lifetime of enjoyment for you both.

At KeenDog we use a wide variety of training methods and tools that benefit the dog, as we do not want dogs to be reliant on one training system (think if we only use treats, once that treat goes away so does your dog's listening skills). We use marker training, lure training, body motion, play, leash training and e collars in our training program. All behaviors are taught in private and then you and your dog advance to our  group classes to continue your skills in real world environments.


OUR TRAINING INCLUDES:

  • Ability to walk your dog on and off-leash with other dogs and people around.
  • Consistently and confidently call your dog back to you no matter what environment they are in.
  • Extended place stays - 30+ minutes
  • Calm indoor behaviors.
  • Automatic side sits when you stop of your walks.
  • Place command - ability to send your dog to a specific boundary and stay there until released.
  • Focus on you, the handler, through severe distractions.
  • Confidence building for skittish, nervous and aggressive dogs.
  • Eliminating unwanted behaviors such as jumping, nipping, chewing, destructive behaviors, soiling in the house and excessive barking.

The KeenDog lifestyle is meant to be one of enjoyment for both you and your dog! We don't believe that training should stop after you solidify the fundamentals, thus why we offer many group classes that are held throughout the Greater Charlotte area! Training with your dog should be a fun activity for you to do together as a cohesive team.
