Dog Training Now


Potty Training

Our potty training program is intensive, but with successful results. We offer consistency and praise that translates into good habits your dog can be proud of.

Board and Train

This is a great option for owners who are headed off to vacation, as you can return home to a happy and obedient dog. And don’t worry about missing your pooch while he is with us.

Day Training Academy

Your dog will work in our busy studio, a high distraction environment, to reinforce their new commands during the day before you pick them up in the afternoon. 

Your dog is your best friend, but do some of his behaviors make you crazy? Most dog owners have at least a few complaints about their companion but have no idea how to solve the problems. With obedience training at Dog Training Now Charleston, your dog will learn the manners you have always wanted him to have.

Who We Are

Mary Leonardis, our Owner and Lead Trainer, has been working with dogs for her entire life. For the past decade, she has dedicated her life to Professional Dog Training, focusing on providing obedience skills to dogs to make their relationships with their owners even more fulfilling.

What We Do

Our training programs are tailormade to give dogs obedience skills and time to practice them in different situations. We can help you and your dog with:

  • Potty Training (puppies and older dogs!)
  • Daily Obedience and Manners
  • Obsessive Behaviors (chewing, barking, etc.)
  • Leash Manners
  • House and Guest Manners (no more jumping!)
  • Safety Skills
  • Off Leash Obedience
  • One-on-One Consultations

How We Do It

Each of our training programs is based on an immersive approach. We give your dog the skills, practice it with them in a variety of situations, and give you the knowledge to continue the positive behaviors at home. Our Trainers will work with your dog and with you so that you have the confidence to lead your dog at home as well.

We offer multiple options to suit your needs and your schedule. From Puppy Preschool to socialize your new addition to Day Training Academy, where you drop off and pick up your dog daily, to Boot Camp, where your dog stays with us for 12-day boot camp, 10 days drop off, we are ready to give your dog the best – and most practical – obedience skills for your investment. We also love to offer clients Private Lessons, giving us the chance to work 1:1 with your dog and family.

But we aren’t all training and practice – we are play and snuggles too! After all, we are dog lovers and can’t resist a good cuddle session or game of fetch with our visiting dogs!

Are you ready to give your dog the chance to learn obedience skills that will make them safe, happy, and healthy?
Let us partner with you and your family to make it happen. You’ll love the results!
