EASTERN NC'S PREMIER PUPPY TRAINERS & HUMAN+PUPOLOGISTS
DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN ACTUALLY ENJOY PUPPYHOOD & STILL RAISE A BALANCED HAPPY DOG?
A NEW ERA OF DOG TRAINING HAS ARRIVED.
Here at Simply Balanced K9 we focus on preventing those unwanted adult dog behaviors that lead to either rehoming, resentment or us humans giving up things like vacations, having friends over or any other sacrifices owners make all because they love their dog. Yet, in the end no one is happy and everyone loses. Did you know at eight weeks old your puppy is equal to a year old child? With that, we want to empower owners through teaching them who dogs are and what they require to be happy. By removing the human canine language barrier, we provide owners the insight required to actually enjoy puppyhood (yes its possible!)
p.s. we actually have the experience and knowledge to back it up when we tell you it WORKS!
We shop local and support our small businesses
