    Does your four-legged friend have issues like walking you down the street, getting into the trash or jumping on people in your home? Do you just want to do something fun with your dog like teaching them to shake, bow or crawl? Our Behavior Buddies® Durham dog training program can help get your pup off your “naughty-dog” list or just help you have more fun with your dog using reward-based methods.

    Our Certified Behavior Buddies Trainers complete an extensive training program with top dog behavior experts and can help you with anything from basic obedience and tricks, all the way up to the tougher issues like leash reactivity. Whether you want to participate in a group setting, take private lessons, or have us train your dog while you’re away, our trainers are ready to work with you and your pup.


    Our dog training obedience classes are split into levels to help you and your dog learn at a progressive pace. Our classes will help you create the well-behaved dog you have always dreamed about using only reward-based training methods.

    Level I – Basic Puppy or Basic Adult

    Builds the foundation of reliable obedience commands like sit, leave it, coming when called and walking nicely on a leash. Your trainer will also address behavior issues that you have, whether it’s potty training or chewing, digging or barking, they can help you with any problems you are having.

    Level II – Advanced

    Teach your dog to heel by your side, go to their mat, come when called, and add distance and distractions to all of their behaviors so your dog listens to you wherever you are.
    The prerequisite for this class is a Level I – Basic Puppy or Adult, or trainer approval.

    Level III – Public Polishing CGC

    Learn how to get your dog to sit politely when they are greeting a stranger heel through a crowd, and much more! If your dog progresses through all three levels of our training, they will be prepared to take the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) exam.
    The prerequisite for this class is a Level II – Advanced or trainer approval.

    Tricks are Fun

    Our tricks class is great for teaching your dog some fun stuff you can show off to your friends, and your dog will love it, too! Teach them to spin and twirl, crawl, bow, shake and more. This is also a great class for kids to interact with their pup in a fun way.


    Let our Certified Behavior Buddies Trainers work with your dog while they are at Camp. With our Play & Train and Board & Train options, our Certified dog trainers will spend 30-minutes of one-on-one time with your dog during the day. Your trainer will recommend how many sessions your dog will need to learn the desired behavior, and you can pick up a well-mannered dog!


    Our Certified Dog Trainers will work one-on-one with you and your dog in a private setting that is most comfortable for you and your family. Private training can help you with addressing basic behavior issues, obedience or more serious issues.
