    Leash Life

    (24 reviews)

    It is not just a job for us. We love animals. We love getting to know their wide range of personalities and their quirks. As a result of this, pets are not just here and then put away or locked in a kennel. We interact with them like family and help them to feel safe. Our concern is your pet's ability to feel as little stress from a schedule interruption as possible. We tailor our work to your schedule and adjust accordingly. We will adjust and yield to your pet(s). We truly want this to be a new "leash on their life." The pets! We love animals. I grew up on a farm caring for 23 cows, 6 bulls, 2 horses, one of which was blind, 11 ducks, 14 chickens, 9 cats, and four dogs. There was a lot of responsibilities but working with animals is where all the joy was.

  • Understanding Our Dogs LLC

    (27 reviews)

    I am Lena Skov, MBA, KPA, and I am the dog trainer covering a very large area from Charlotte, NC to Kings Mountain, NC and from Statesville, NC to Rock Hill, SC. I have vast experience of 18+ years of working with dogs of many breeds and personalities, as well as formal education. I graduated from the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior. Among many, there are two main aspects that set my business apart from others: 1. While dealing with anxious and aggressive dogs, I try to get to the source of the problem. We have to change the dog' emotional response to the trigger. If we just tell the dog to be quiet or ignore something or punish him for his behavior, we are simply putting a BandAid over the issue instead of getting to the source of it. At some point, the dog will not be able to continue to suppress the emotions and will have another outbreak. I want to make the dog feel more relaxed around other dogs or things that bother him. I want to relieve the anger and panic. 90% of aggression is fear or anxiety based. If we address fear and anxiety, we are going to be much more successful in helping the dog in the long term. 2. I have a very successful Puppy Program. It is based on impulse control or teaching the puppy patience. Puppy learns to compose herself to obtain what she wants from the owner. We not only work on basic behaviors but also teach the puppy to be polite when asking for attention, learn to give owners space and settle. We address no jumping and biting very early on. I teach my clients how to replace behaviors they do not like with the ones they prefer. The training program is very efficient and easy to follow. I am a positive but not a permissive trainer, and I do believe in having rules, but I prefer following through without unnecessary coercion. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients and their dogs lead harmonious lives together. All owners deserve a great dog and all dogs deserve great owners.

  • Furever Home Training

    (22 reviews)

    I am passionate about helping dogs stay in their home and helping their parents get the best from their dog using positive training methods as recommended by The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior. I am a rescue volunteer and love helping dogs deal with baggage that they may have acquired as no fault of their own. I love when clients tell me that the dog's behavior has improved and so has their relationship. I love to show people that training can be fun for them and their dog. Nobody wants to do it if it is not fun!
