Make Life With Your Pet More Enjoyable!

dog training programs

There’s a lot more to dog training than unlearning aggressive behaviors. In fact, most dog owners experience frustration from less serious, yet chronic, behavioral issues. We have a wide range of programs that correct many negative behaviors and provide training for positive ones that will make your life with your pet much more enjoyable.

Success Stories

Carolina's Dog Trainer | Lancaster, SC | working with diamond the beagle


I feel extremely grateful for the time Richard spent with my beagle, Diamond. During the consultation, I was given many useful tips and tricks for establishing a calm presence for Diamond when she is around other dogs. I was also provided with suggestions that will help me train her so she will be a disciplined dog, not just a loving dog. Richard was very quick to identify some things we can improve on, and I know Diamond will be even more amazing by following the advice he provided. Thank you, The Carolinas’ Dog Trainer (Caughman’s Canines).

OREO & chunky monkey

Richard trained me as much as he did the pups. They are so much better. And I learned so much about dog behavior and my interaction with the dogs. He was extremely honest about each dog. I would recommend him if you have a dog that needs to be trained.

Carolina's Dog Trainer | Lancaster, SC | cooper after training


Richard Caughman trained Cooper in his 21 day board and train and we are amazed! Cooper was an easily distracted boy who could not walk on a leash without pulling before his training. Now that he has graduated he is a calm, well behaved boy who I feel confident taking on a walk or pretty much anywhere! Thanks so much Richard!
