Dog Training That Works

Welcome to Carolina Ranch Dog Training! Our Trainers work with dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments from family pets to Police K9. Our programs include Pet Obedience, Service Dogs, Competitive Obedience, Scent Detection, Tracking, Search and Rescue and more!

A great first step to joining any of our Training Programs is to join us for an Orientation or a Consultation. Our FREE Orientations are every Saturday at 10:00am or Tuesday at 6:00pm. This is a group setting that allows you to get information on our training theories, programs and schedules.

For a more private introduction, join us for a Private Consultation. These can be scheduled Monday – Friday 8:00am – 7:00pm and on Saturdays 8:00am – noon.

Call us at 919-662-3200 for more information or to schedule your training.

Mike Buonasorte

Dog Training: Mike
Mike explored several different career paths after serving 8 years in the United States Navy, but his passion for dogs made his decision very clear. Realizing that the breakdown in communication between people and their dogs was causing so many problems, Mike decided to pursue the knowledge to help people learn to better communicate with their dogs. He graduated at the top of his class at the prestigious Tom Rose School. He was offered the rare opportunity to stay on and work with the staff at the school, focusing on everything from competitive sport dogs and protection dogs, to rehabilitating dogs with severe cases of aggression. Mike and his personal dogs have been on the podium at every competition they have entered.
