Laughing Dog

Dog Training, Pet Sitting, + Advocacy

Balanced Dog Trainer currently servicing 

Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Chatham Park.

We understand dog training can feel like learning a new language, and that’s because you are! We’re here to teach you how to become a calm and confident leader of your pack so that your pup is looking to you for guidance and all the good things!

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 psychology, communication, and a whole animal holistic approach.

Our offerings

Pet Sitting + Overnight Care

With over a decade of experience caring for all kinds of species, we've got you covered when you can't take your friend with you! Whether you need potty pop ins or overnight care in your house for added comfort and security, we're on it!

Not just cats + dogs, we have extensive experience with exotics of all kinds to include, guineas, bearded dragons, snakes, and even bugs! Farm animals are no problem either as we have many clients with chickens, goats, and horses.

Our pet sitting is broken into time frames with a flat fee. Anything your beloved needs during that time frame we will accomplish!

We also care for gardens, lawns, and flowers during the summer months and it's surprisingly one of our most popular summer services.
