Dog Training Pluto's Way uses current positive reinforcement training methods. Every dog learns differently so we have a variety of strategies and tools to ensure training success. There are 3 ways animals learn: shaping, luring & capturing behavior.   We are the only positive reinforcement training facility in the triad who trains dogs with severe behavior challenges, aggression, reactivity and resource guarding.  We have years of training experience with dogs of all different sizes, shapes and ages.

Private Classes

Board and Train


Board and train is a program for extensive, intense one-on-one training. Board and train has limited availability. 

Private classes are available to create a program specially tailored for your dog. 

In home training is great for those struggling with specific challenges inside the home and want one on one training for you and your dog. 

Our Motto


"Where dogs learn because they love you" is our motto and it stands us apart from any other training facility. We believe dogs should have fun learning and using our positive reinforcement techniques we help teach you how to better communicate with your dog.

"Highly Recommend"

We had two big, unruly, incredibly loving Great Danes and Alicia was able to help us get to a place where they were happy and we were happy all living together. We're able to walk them, have people over, and just enjoy being together without a bunch of craziness. We did a board and train session with them and it was worth every penny. I highly recommend them!! - Evie C.

Alicia helped my 1 year old mini goldendoodle and I work through issues with resource guarding. Since then, my dog has been through Intermediate Obedience, Therapy Dog Training, and Advanced Obedience with Alicia and Andrew. My 6 month old recently graduated from Beginner Obedience. I look forward to continuing their education and mine with Dog Training Pluto's Way. Being a mom to such smart, high-energy dogs is so much better when I know how to work their minds and bodies! - Joy M.  

What Pet Owners Say

"Much Better Now"


Alicia is an amazing trainer. She is willing to help you with any questions you have and is always making sure that you walk away with the most from the class. Even though it is really for the pups, I learned a lot as well. Chloe loved going there every week and we can't wait to start the intermediate class!
