Welcome to Trained By Elaine ™

A division of Carolina Dog Training, LLC

Life with a well-behaved, well-balanced dog begins here!

At Trained By Elaine™, we train dogs of every breed, age and behavior imaginable. From the day we first opened our doors, it has been our guiding mission to transform each of our dogs into one that is balanced and well-mannered. Our promise is to deliver a dog you can be proud to take anywhere, and we take this promise very seriously. We help frustrated dog owners learn better ways to ensure a lifetime of enjoyment and harmony with their dog. At Trained By Elaine™ our calling is to transform the dynamic relationship between people and their dogs from challenging to fulfilling, thus creating a healthy, harmonious and respectful relationship between human and dog.

The "Pack Leader" Concept:

We are firm believers, practitioners and teachers of pack leadership. In order for any dog to reach its full potential as a well-behaved companion, it must feel secure in knowing that he is under the guidance of a trusted, loving and respected leader who will make appropriate, thoughtful decisions for the well-being of the entire pack. This allows the dog to do what it does best: be a follower and cooperative member within the pack. While our focus is on training dogs, we also train the humans who care for them. It allows us to reach training goals faster and make the results we achieve sustainable long after the training sessions have been completed. Thank you for taking time to learn more about Trained by Elaine™! I would love to talk with you personally regarding your dog and discuss how we can develop a customized training program that will get you the balanced, well-behaved dog you're dreaming of!
