Dog Training Now
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.

Mary Leonardis, our Owner and Lead Trainer, has been working with dogs for her entire life.

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!
