Founder & Lead TrainerOriginally from Goose Creek, South Carolina, Chad graduated from The Citadel in 2013 with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Upon graduation, he was commissioned into the United States Navy where he served as a Communications Officer in San Diego, CA and Detachment Officer-in-Charge in Coronado, CA.
While stationed in California, Chad and his wife, Lauren, brought Bane into their home as a puppy. Because of Bane’s energy levels, over-excitement, anxiety, and lack of listening, Chad became a dog trainer in San Diego, California where he learned and trained dogs for over one year. Upon resignation from active duty service, Chad moved back to the Charleston Lowcountry and started Canine Revolution Dog Training.
Chad’s mission is to help as many dog owners truly enhance their relationship with their dogs despite the issues that they may be experiencing.
Originally from Summerville, South Carolina, Chris graduated from The Citadel in 2011 with a degree in Criminal Justice. Upon graduation, he served at the Summerville Police Department as a patrolman for several years. During his time at the police department, Chris additionally served on the Honor Guard and the Emergency Services Unit. He eventually left the Patrol Division in order to serve as a detective with the Criminal Investigations Division. Chris continues his service as a reserve officer with the Summerville Police Department.
Chris and his wife, Kelly, adopted Vader from the ASPCA several years ago. Due to Vader’s high levels of anxiety, and lack of pack structure, Vader began to exhibit behaviors that became dangerous to other dogs and eventually even for Chris and Kelly. Chris began working with Canine Revolution Dog Training along with Vader and developed a pack structure to address Vader’s anxiety. It was through this training that Chris developed a passion for dog training and a desire to help other dog owners overcome similar obstacles.
Chris and Kelly now have three dogs in their pack, Vader, Lola and Leia.
Customer Care AssistantOriginally from Williston, South Carolina, Lauren graduated from Charleston Southern University in 2012 with a degree in Psychology.

Canine Revolution Dog Training is focused on enhancing the dog and owner relationship, so that all can “Live the dog owner’s dream”. Revolution is “a dramatic and wide-reaching change”. Our vision is to change the way that dogs are viewed and how they are treated to better align with their natural instincts. This is accomplished through training methods that are “Tried and True” including three main aspects: education, balance, and pack instincts.
Education is “information about or training in a particular field or subject”. Our method of training educates the dog on how to behave appropriately in a domestic environment and how to tolerate foreign behavior. Additionally, our training method educates the dog owner on how to understand the dog’s language (body language), understand the dog’s mental state, and utilize the dog’s natural instincts in order to become the pack leader.
Balance is “a condition in which different elements are in the correct proportions”. The Canine Revolution method of training uses a consistent and fair approach to dog training that simulates canine interaction in a natural dog pack. A balance of training also creates trust, loyalty, and respect with the dog and owner that strengthens their day-to-day interactions.
Pack Instincts are a dog’s “natural behaviors that are not trained or taught”. In order to utilize the dog’s natural pack instincts, we must create a pack structure. This is a major aspect of the Canine Revolution Dog Training method, creating a pack structure that simulates the natural dog pack, forming conditions for living in the pack, and that is easy for the dog owner to understand and maintain at home in order to successfully “lead the pack”.
At Canine Revolution Dog Training our commitment is to provide unmatched lifelong support for you and your dog. It is an honor to work with each and every dog and owner, and our desire is to interact with as many dogs and owners as possible to help both live a naturally happy, stress-free life together while revolutionizing the way that society views our beloved companions.
