Atlantic Coast K-9 Training Service
About this pro
Atlantic Coast K-9 has been in business since 1999. I (Ralph Smith) have personally trained over 3,000 dogs and am recognized as one of the Top Trainers in the country. Most trainers in today's world are extremely basic and gimmicky in what they train your dog to do. That's a sure sign of an amateur. There are no gimmicks with me. I didn't get the reputation that I have for giving subpar training. My slogan is that we offer "Competition Level Obedience for the Average Dog". You can easily pick a dog out of a crowd that I have trained because that dog will be far superior to any of the other dogs around. I have titled more dogs than most other trainers and I am a National Level Competitor in Sport Dog Competition. Simply put, to get to the level that I have attained, you have to be the best of the best. That's what I have to offer you. My prices are reasonable but I'm sure that you can find someone cheaper. Just remember that you get what you pay for. I also offer a 100% guarantee that your dog will be exactly what you want it to be when I train it and I will continue to work with the dog to reach that goal for as long as it takes. See how many other trainers will offer you that. I also offer many services that very few trainers offer. This is a testament to my experience. Those services are: Basic and Advanced Obedience, Behavior Counseling, Protection Training, Schutzhund Training, Explosives and Narcotics Detection, K-9 Security Services, Search and Rescue Training, Show Dog Handling and Training Seminars. Training Dogs is my Passion! I have devoted 25 years of my life to becoming a World Class Dog Trainer. I have worked one on One with some of the Top trainers in the World. I attend seminars as well as give seminars all across the country. My goal is to take the knowledge that I've learned and to transfer that to the dogs that I train. My greatest joy in life is to see a well trained and well behaved dog that is a joy for it's owners. There is simply no greater feeling than to know that I played a part in getting their dog to be a loving, well behaved part of the family!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is very competitive, especially when you factor in my 25 years of experience. In the Dog Training world, cheaper pricing almost always means poorer quality and amateur training. I have trained dogs for 25 years and am one of the most respected and sought after trainers in the country. I have competed in National championships and have earned more titles than just about anyone.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I work one on one with every customer doing Private training. Most trainers who have reached my level of success are only doing seminars these days for large groups but I truly love being able to share my knowledge one on one with my clients and train their dogs to levels that otherwise would be unattainable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to school at Tarheel Canine in Sanford, NC which is owned and operated by Jerry Bradshaw. Jerry is a legend in the Dog Training world and I am honored to have been able to work with him. I have also attended seminars and apprenticed with many of the great trainers in the world such as Dean Calderon and Michael Ellis.
