Build a rewarding
relationship with
your dog.



You absolutely adore your dog, but he’s a handful.

When you take your dog on a walk, it feels more like he is taking YOU for a walk. He tugs at his leash and drags you through the neighborhood.

At home, your dog goes crazy when guests come over. He barks like crazy and jumps all over them. It was cute as a puppy, but now your dog is big enough to knock over grandma.

Your puppy is full of rambunctious energy, wreaking havoc all over your house. He’s peed on your carpet, chewed on your shoes, and exhausted all of your energy.

With help from our dog training pros in Atlanta, you’ll have a dream dog who...

…walks calmly beside you on a leash, bringing compliments from all the other dog walkers.

…sits and stays on command, without you having to worry that your dog is going to dive nose-first into that bowl of spaghetti you just put down.

…comes to you when called, even if the ball rolls down into the street where cars are flying by.

Hey, I’m Alan Carr – military veteran, former police K9 handler, and your new dog trainer. After 30+ years of training dogs, I’ve learned that there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” dog training – at least not training that is sustainable and lasts a lifetime. All training packages are built custom to your dog, your lifestyle, and your training goals.

Together, we’ll use positive reinforcement & a variety of science-backed training techniques to help you create the dog of your dreams & achieve all your training goals.

Getting Started Is As Easy As 1-2-3!

Schedule & attend your initial consultation with Atlanta Dog Trainer Alan Carr.
We'll work together to create a custom training plan for you & your dog.
You & your dog follow our training plan to get the best trained dog in the neighborhood.

What Clients Just Like You Are Saying


"We had tried two other trainers before Alan, to stop our 5-year-old Lab from pulling on the leash and from being too exuberant at the front door. We were shocked to see how quickly Alan got our dog focused and understanding what we expected of her. She’s truly a different dog now. And she loves Alan so much!  Highly recommend for any issue you and your dog might be having!"  - Lynne K. (Facebook Review)


"Alan’s K9 Academy did an amazing job training Tozer. He is a 2-year-old typical GSD that chased my grandchildren when they rode their motorized toys, chased and nipped at them when they rode the zip line and played very aggressively with them. Mr. Alan was very patient with Tozer to help him calm down and pay attention. He addressed problematic behavior in a firm but gentle way. He also taught my son-in-law how to be firm with Tozer and to let Tozer know who was in control. My grandchildren can now run and play without the fear of being nipped. They can throw his ball without it being snatched out of their hands. Tozer has come a long way. Many thanks to Alan’s K9 Academy and their hard work!"- Bobbie H. (Facebook Review)
