Laughing Dog

Training for Calm + Confident Dogs

Hey Y’all! 

We are  Carrboro + Chapel Hill based dog trainers devoted to teaching YOU, the modern pet parent, how to communicate better with your dogs. We believe having the love of a companion animal is a powerful healer. Our mission is to help you cultivate the strongest bond possible with your dog through canine psychology, communication, and a whole dog holistic approach.

Our offerings

private training sessions

Our private 1 hour training sessions are designed for you and your dog and can be held at your home, our day training site, or in public. We teach you all about canine psychology, communication, and how to train from a whole dog holistic approach. We will show you how to make training second hand and naturally apart of your everyday life by teaching your dog boundaries, giving them structure, and deepening your bond. $150 an hour.

day training

Let us train your dog all day while you're at work! Our Day Training program is tailored to whatever you and your dog need help with most, that may look like crate work, cultivating calm energy, reactivity with people and other animals, loose leash walking, separation anxiety and more. Drop your pup off at 9am and pick up at 3pm with video homework and notes of everything we covered that day. You must book an initial private session to be eligible for Day Training. $120/day

Pet Sitting

We know it can be tough leaving a pet at home while working long hours or traveling, but we’re here to step in and take over the snuggles until you get back!
Not just dogs and cats, we're experienced in many exotics and farm animals!
