Training

Whether your dog is new to you or has been with your family a while, Pitt K9 Academy can help.  Expecting every dog owner to perform obedience training on their own is unreasonable.  It takes a lot of time and effort, which most owners don’t have in their busy lives.  It also requires knowledge of obedience training methods, which we have here at Pitt K9 Academy.

Our dog trainers understand that all dogs are different and we cater to every pet and you as well.  We will meet both of your individual needs so your dog meets its full potential and you are a happy pet parent.  We are experts in dog training and want to make sure we not only get the best results, but also provide you with the tools to maintain a well-mannered dog for years to come.  The end result: happy you and happy dog!

Meet Our Trainers

Macon Moore, owner of Pitt County K9 Academy, spent 15 years working with and training dogs as a K9 Handler. After his K9 Partner, Asa, was retired due to health reasons, Macon was transferred to the Patrol Division with a local law enforcement agency here in Pitt County, where he now serves as a full-time Deputy.

Training Courses

1-Week Puppy Training Course

Pitt County K9 Academy offers a 1-Week Puppy Training Course for pups that are 4 to 4.5 months of age and after they have received all of their puppy vaccines. This training is an introduction to sitting, staying, laying, and leash walking. This training is also helpful for socializing your pup, which is very important. We will also work on any jumping or nipping issues during the one week of training. By the end of training, the pup will respond to commands by voice and hand signs.

Please note that this is boarding and training, not a class. (Occasionally, we can work with you, if you request to drop the pup off in the morning and pick up in the evening.)

The cost for the one-week puppy training is $600.00.  The deposit for puppy training is $300.00 and the remaining $300.00 will be due on the day of pick up, after we do a one-on-one demonstration with the owner.

8-Day Board and Train Course

The 8-Day Board and Train Course is normally for dogs 5 months and older. During their stay, we will work with sitting, staying, laying, and leash walking. Typically, towards the end of the training, we will work with some off-leash obedience as well. By the end of training, the dog will respond to commands by voice and hand signs.

The cost for the 8-Day Board and Train Course is $950.00. For this course, a $475.00 deposit on the day of drop-off is required, with the remaining balance of $475.00 due on the last day, after a one-on-one demonstration with the owner.

No-Leash Training Course (2-Week Board & Train Course)

The No-Leash Training includes everything mentioned from the 8-Day Board and Train Course, but all off-leash. This training consists of E-Collar training. During this training, your dog will be 100% trained off-leash, with the help of an E-Collar. We will properly teach the dog how to respond to the commands given during the training and teach you how to properly use your new E-Collar at the end of the course.

The cost of the No-Leash Training Course is $1,700.00. For this course, a $850.00 deposit is required on the day of drop off, with the remaining balance of $850.00 due on the last day, after a one-on-one demonstration with the owner.
