About AvidDog

AvidDog is a professional dog training company serving Wilmington, NC and the surrounding areas. As a small, family owned and operated company, we put a huge emphasis on customer service, and strive to not only meet, but exceed all of our clients’ unique goals and expectations.

We offer a home sweet home feel to our training that sets us apart from our competitors. Our home-based, pet paradise is situated on a 4 acre plot of land conveniently located off of Highway 210 in Sneads Ferry and just a short drive to Topsail Beach. 

We bring a different meaning to the phrase “real world training”. Instead of operating solely out of a facility, all dogs that come through an AvidDog Board and Train Program train in our homes and are treated as one of our own. We can guarantee that you will have a peace of mind during your dog’s training experience with us because we will grow to cherish your dog just as much as you do!

All of our trainers are highly educated and experienced in all aspects of dog training:
  • anxiety and fear
  • rehabilitation
  • overarousal
  • dog psychology
  • dog behavior
  • dog body language
  • classical and operant conditioning
  • counter conditioning and desensitization

Our trainers have completed countless hours of schooling, both online and in person, attended seminars with some of the industry’s top trainers, and titled our own personal dogs in a variety of dog sports/competitions. We have trained and been trusted with hundreds of dogs just like your own, with problem behaviors ranging all across the spectrum. We take a specialized, innovative approach to training your dog.

The team at AvidDog has been fantastic working with me and my new puppy! I’m so glad I started early with them and have used both the in-home training and just finished a board and train. The team is knowledgeable and professional – and fun. Strong recommendation for anyone wanting to have a well trained dog and take advantage of Wilmington’s dog friendly environment. It is a lot of work for the dog and the owner, and Avid really helps both of us focus for success.
