CPT’s highly accomplished staff ensures that training is fun and successful. All CPT Head Trainers and the majority of CPT Staff Trainers have titled dogs in competition and earned collegiate degrees, including graduate degrees, with high gpa’s. Moreover, all our trainers are highly educated and experienced regarding teaching basic obedience skills and resolving common household behavioral problems. Furthermore, our staff is not only educated at how to teach the skills and resolve the problems, they are taught how to communicate effectively to our clients in one-on-one and small group conversations and how to impart large group lectures that are organized, informative, productive, and entertaining. Our skilled staff and effectively designed programs will deliver you a lifetime of pleasure from your canine companion.
Close to 50,000 human and canine teams have graduated from CPT’s Group, Private, and Board Training programs. CPT’s student body has flourished due to outstanding feedback from clients who pass the word on to their friends and neighbors. Our clients appreciate the successes they achieve working with CPT and they appreciate the positive, motivational focus of CPT’s training methods. We emphasize cognitive methods (rather than force), so that you and your dog enjoy learning and training.

Animals trained by CPT have appeared in print advertisements and on television programs, television commercials, and multiple feature films. Yet, what we are most proud of is that close to 50,000 pet dogs trained by CPT have provided superior companionship and pleasure to Atlanta’s pet owners, pet owners residing in outlying areas of Georgia, and pet enthusiasts residing in multiple states within the USA, including as far away as New York and California.
