atlanta dog training



All dogs need to be pre-registered and paid in full before in home lessons begin.

At Central Bark Doggy Day Care Atlanta, Ohio native Caren Lloyd heads up the training program. Here, Lloyd embraces Central Bark’s reward-based paw-losophy that focuses on fun and positive reinforcement. Rather than training being conducted in group settings, Caren comes to your home and works with your family and your pup on a one-on-one basis. Each training package includes three, one hour sessions, thus ensuring that your pup accomplishes all of their desired skills.

Additional sessions are always available upon request.

Lloyd, an ABC-CPT Animal Behavior College Certified Pet Trainer, traveled to Atlanta from Ohio State with Habitat for Humanity and during the trip to Stone Mountain made the decision that this was where she wanted to live. The energy in Atlanta was just different. After graduation, Lloyd started her career with the Education Department at Zoo Atlanta.

Lloyd explains that the key to dog training is to understand “why” certain dogs do certain things. Lloyd doesn’t just understand dogs she has experience training over 200 exotic species of animals from rodents to psittacines.

Understanding the dynamic between the pet and the parent is another key to dog training. Behavioral issues are actually the number one cause for dogs being surrendered to shelters.

The best part about dog training at Central Bark Atlanta, according to Lloyd, is the staff. Dog training is a difficult task, where performance reflects leadership. In her extensive career, Lloyd has seen things that have made her shutter, but Central Bark is a safe place where dogs are treated like royalty because of the amount of love resonating from everyone in the facility.
