Testimonials

These guys are worth every penny spent! I have a Frenchie pup who has a very strong-willed personality not to mention spoiled rotten. He was a nightmare to ride in the car with as well as a door-dasher! He spent 8 weeks away from home and this team kept me informed weekly with video updates to make the process less painful for me! He has been home a few weeks and we still have a relationship with CRDT if we are having any challenges (very few). I can't express the gratitude I have for them and the peace of mind they have given me to be able to control my boy, Maverick and to be able to take him places without jumping on everyone he wants to greet.

Chad & his team are AMAZING. My dog was trained by them a few years ago & ever since they are the only people I’ll trust to board my dog with!! They’re reliable, professional, & my dog LOVES them all!! They care for your dogs as if they’re their own & I always know he’s in great hands. Jackson loves you guys & can’t wait for his next vacation with you!🤩

Canine Revolution changed everything about our lives, when they trained our little Yorkie. He was small but fierce, and made it impossible to have guests at our home (he would attack and bark without ceasing), and we definitely could not take him in public. NOW, he rides in the car well, follows commands perfectly, is less anxious when we have guests, and goes in public with confidence. We are more confident too!

Everything you have read about CRDT is true. They are every bit as committed to the training of your dog as they are to building your confidence as your dog's pack leader. I was hesitant to make the drive to SC from Texas, so I originally went with a program locally. Fast forward 6 months and now after completing training with CRDT, I wish I would have gone with them last year. The results after just four weeks have been incredible. My pitbull Astro is five-years-old, and now, thanks to Chris and the team, we have the tools needed to address his reactivity and build his long-term confidence. Walks used to be stressful and required a lot of avoidance of other dogs. Now, Astro is able to walk on a loose-leash, through busy areas, and over time we will work toward passing other dogs without any issues (he is a dog-reactive pup and I knew going into training this wouldn't go away instantly, but his progress has really been amazing). If you are hesitating because of the price or the distance from your home, I urge you to choose Canine Revolution anyways. They have changed our lives and I am so glad we found them. This picture is from Astro and I's first hike together, something we never used to be able to do before training.

We can’t say enough about Canine Revolution Dog Training! We have a sweet but high energy, strong-willed dog who was running our house. After 4 weeks of training she listens to voice commands and we are able to take her with us to so many places we would have never considered before. Not only did our dog benefit from the training, but we were provided very detailed, professional instructional videos throughout her training so we knew what to do when she returned home. She’s still as sweet as ever - she’s just obedient now. We have also boarded her with Canine Revolution, where she receives continued obedience training and recreational time throughout her stay. She was excited to return there to see the trainers and best of all they truly love and take excellent care of your fur baby. We highly recommend Canine Revolution Dog Training overall and Chris is a fabulous trainer!

Canine Revolution Dog Training did an excellent job in training Moses. The before and after is amazing. Kevin’s follow up was great after Moses came home just to make sure all was going well and to make sure Moses was following his training. We are very happy with the training and with Moses!

We sent our dog Gracie for 6 weeks of obedience training. She is a mixed-rescue breed. Kevin and the team at Canine Revolution did a great job with her. She is great to walk (heeled) now without pulling on the leash. She obeys her commands, doesn’t bound in or out of the house or her kennel. Lays down in the car and rides calmly and quietly. The training has been all we hoped for and Gracie is now a well behaved dog.

Every cent was worth the training that came out of working with Canine Revolution. Not only is my dog more confident with herself, but I'm more confident as a dog owner. I never thought I could leave my husky off leash, but now I have a hard time remembering a leash whenever we are outside of the house. The training was thorough and easily explained. This crew truly love the dogs they work with and you can tell. I trust them 100% with my dog any time!

Chad and his team are the best in the dog training arena and I wouldn't send anyone looking for dog training to anyone else. They took my hellion of a dog Titus and 4 weeks later sent me back a brand new dog, it was nothing short of miraculous. Not only that but when I had a problem with my dog biting almost a year later Chad took time out of his busy schedule nearly a year later to come meet with me personally. That says a lot about a business owner and his commitment to service.

We are a multi dog home. When our youngest pack member began viciously attacking our oldest pack member, we didn’t know what to do. All I knew was the situation was out of my scope of comfort... I didn’t know how to respond, manager or correct the situation. I had a phone consult with Kevin Miller then he visited our home for an evaluation. From the moment we spoke on the phone I knew CRDT was exactly where Georgia needed to be. Time and time again as Georgia was away at training Kevin and the entire team made us feel confident, comfortable and reassured when needed. Now as I sit here writing this Cruz, Sneak and Georgia(less than 2 weeks out of training) are all peaceful relaxing in the same room together. The only thing I regret regarding our experience with CRDT is that I didn’t call sooner.

Miraculous transformation of our 2 year old German Shepherd Rescue!!! I sent Scooby to the 6 week intensive board and train program because of his high level of anxiety and tendency to lunge at other dogs, chase trucks/buses/kids on bikes. What came back to me, was a calm, secure dog, who heels beautifully, sits at my side whenever I stop to talk to someone on the street, comes when I call, and exhibits no aggression. I'm 100% amazed and am so impressed by Chad Singer and his team...they treat the dogs with respect while helping them learn core obedience skills and adjust to a pack structure. I appreciate the 2 videos per week I received while Scooby was away...it helped me see what he was learning and reassured me that he and Chad were developing a solidbond. Chad's been super helpful since Scooby returned home and has helped me become a strong pack leader. These guys are true professionals and passionate experts in their field. I'll be forever grateful.

Toby is such a great dog but we were having some issues with him. He would pull on the leash when we walked; he was easily distracted and lacked confidence. At 65 lbs Toby was too much for me to control. We needed someone to train Toby in basic obedience and coach us on how to handle him.Chad did an outstanding job! When he brought Toby back to us I was amazed at the level of conditioning Chad had achieved with Toby in 4 weeks. I love my walks with Toby now and daily obedience work is easy to do. The structure it has introduced into my daily routine is wonderful. Now I receive compliments all the time on how well behaved Toby is.We just went to our first continuing education class on Saturday and had a phenomenal time. The individual attention we received was outstanding. It is notable that when CR trainers interact with you they are 100% focused on you and your dog and that they give you as much time as you need. They are vested in teaching you their dog magic (classical conditioning of markers). CR’s continued support after basic training is golden and reflects their commitment to the highest standards. Chad thank you so much! We look forward to continuing our journey with you all.

Louie, our 16 month old Beagle, went through the 4 week Advanced Training program and we are very pleased! Walking him is so much more enjoyable now after training and his overall behavior is a lot better. He listens better and patiently stays where he’s told without too much redirection and correction. We appreciated receiving update videos while he was away being trained. The videos were not only an opportunity to see how our pup was doing but our trainer spoke to us in the video, teaching us so we could better prepare for Louie’s return. We haven’t gone to any follow up group training sessions yet but plan to as soon as possible. Kevin, our trainer is very responsive when I email or text him with questions or concerns. We plan to use Canine Revolution in the future to board Louie if we go away because they will reinforce what he’s learned while boarding there. We are very happy we found Canine Revolution!

Having a Large breed working dog, and a special needs senior dog I knew I would need help with training so that my family could flourish. After doing some research for board and train, CRDT was recommended to me by a dear friend. I immediately set up a meeting with Chad. We spent every part of an hour standing in his driveway talking and I knew he was not only extremely knowledgeable but truly passionate about what he did, but even then, I could not truly imagine the level of service I would get from CRDT and team. Not only did my 6 month old Rottweiler come home with confidence and was secure in his commands, I gained another family with Chad and his team. Dogs are not robots and it takes a lot of work and consistency to maintain a well-balanced and trained pet, however I know with CRDT on my side we are never alone. I can not thank Chad and everyone at Canine Revolution Dog Training for all that they have and continue to give me and Petey.

They (Kevin) was amazing. We had a new puppy being trained, and an 8 year old deaf dog being trained as well.Both dogs came out of the experience totally changed, yet still the same and amazing.We are going to be getting another dog soon, and he will be going to training as well.

No comment yet, plan on meeting with the staff to discuss our training needs. I have met one training aid who has a very well trained dog from this eatablishmentUpdate: 25 Jan, 2021. Our dog Dixie has now been trained by Canine Revolution and we could NOT BE MORE pleased! If you love your pet and want the right training this is the place.Dixie used to bark at every bicycle, skate board and or car riding by. Since training she watches these roll by without the aggression.Dixie now listens to commands learned in Canine Revolution. She walks beautifully on leash without pulling me everywhere.We also attended our first post graduation group class with many other extremely happy dog families. The staff guided all of the families present through some training scenarios. It was a lot of fun and educational for me as the owner.Folks this is the BEST investment you can make if you want your dog to break whatever bad habit they might have. The staff is professional, caring and the best in their fields. They are also available for you after graduation, that's a sign of quality.Last comment, my nephew is a K-9 policeman and his dog went thru Canine Revolution as well as the police station for training...call, you won't be sorry.

Chad and his team were very easy to work with, provided a fantastic result, and show their care through the follow-up options available after initial training. Our rescue dog wasn't bad, but needed to learn how to appropriately walk on a leash and a boost of confidence. Canine Revolution transformed his behavior and allow us to be more part of the family by taking him out with us. We will be sending all of our future pets to him and recommend his services to friends constantly. Highly recommend!

When we reached out to Canine Revolution Training about our Daphne, I think my words to them were “We’ve had her since she was 6 weeks old—she is now 3 and runs our house and our lives.”Kevin Miller responded to us quickly, setting up a consult and sending us some video links so we could get some insight into what we were experiencing with Daphne. After her training, he made sure we understood that it would never be a case of “one and done”—that training (hers and ours) would be a lifelong commitment, but it would pay off in spades if we were patient and consistent.Well, all I can say, is Kevin and the team at Canine Revolution gave us back our house, our lives and has allowed us to make an even better life for Daphne—one where she feels secure, safe and loved.The best part of all is Canine Revolution doesn’t just “drop and go”—they continue to be a resource for us, with on-going group training classes, one-on-one time if needed, and even boarding/day care. It’s not just a business model for them—it truly is a commitment to dogs and dog owners; they want the best possible life for everyone in the family and they will be there every step of the way.

Canine Revolution Dog Training did a fantastic job with our boxer puppy Roscoe. He is a typical boxer with a lot of energy, and the 4 week board and train program he completed was worth every penny. Chris, his personal trainer, has been the most responsive person and has helped us with any questions we have had since having Roscoe back home. It is also a peace of mind when we need to travel out of town because we are able to board him with Canine Revolution Dog Training and know he is in great hands. Thank you so much to the team there! We highly recommend you to everyone!

We sent our rambunctious golden doodle to Chad and his team and could not have been more impressed upon return. Axl returned from his 3 week on leash training knowing how to behave on leash, behave in house (with and without guests), and how to behave in his kennel while maintaining his golden doodle personality. Canine Revolution did such an outstanding job that we recommended them to friends in Atlanta with their German Sheppard, Kygo. Their results were the identical. Thank you Canine Revolution!

I turned over my two dogs and I feel like I got two different ones back (in the best way possible)! I never have to worry about them pulling on the leash, barking at other dogs in the distance, or having to say "no" more than once. The difference is remarkable and I'm very thankful for that.

We sent our boxer puppy, Colt to Canine Revolution Dog Training. Before he left he was your typical stubborn puppy whom refused to listen or obey. Since he has been home (almost 6 months now) our experience with him has been amazing. He is very well disciplined and very respectful. The pack structure has worked wonders with him and our household.Chris did a great job and to this day is very responsive to any questions we have had along the way.I highly recommend investing in your dog and sending them to Canine Revolution. It is worth every penny.

On 10/31/20 my wife and I brought our 2.5 year old Rottweiler, Lou, from our home in Jacksonville, NC to Summerville, SC where the Founder/Lead Trainer of Canine Revolution Dog Training, Chad, would pick our boy up to begin his 6 Week Advanced Training program. This decision is proving to be one of the best ones we could have made for our young boy. Leading up to this day we were already extremely confident that CRDT was the correct choice since our daughter sent her dog, Boomer, to CRDT for the 4 Week Advanced Training with exceptional results. Several months prior to dropping Lou off, Chad and I had several conversations about Lou and his high level of anxiety and insecurities and from these conversations I realized the amount of passion, dedication, knowledge and sincere care for all dogs that not only Chad has but what his expectations are for his team. He was able to answer ALL of my questions, no matter how absurd they may have been and he did so with honesty and promptly. Once Lou was in CRDT's care we received 2 videos a week showing the progression of the training and also giving us, the handlers, an opportunity to see the techniques that are being used and also gives you a visual of your loved one. Lou is a dog that has always had loose stools and it was thought to be because of his high anxiety, 2 weeks in I was asked if it would be ok to try a change Lou's diet. Going in there was a plan for this issue and Chad was willing to deviate from that because he thought the food change would be helpful. As of today Lou is having very good bowel movements and he is a whole lot healthier overall because of the willingness to make changes on the fly. Upon completion of the 6 weeks we had every intention to go to SC to pick Lou up and get our "debrief" from Chad. Chad persuaded us to allow him to bring Lou to us so he could see how he reacted on his "territory" and to see if he had any of the same issues with things he did 6 weeks earlier and if so Chad could show us how to correct it. When they arrived it was very evident how great the CRDT team was to Lou, he looked great! Chad spent at least 3 hours with my wife and I ensuring we felt comfortable with all the information and the tools that were provided. Lou's anxiety and insecurities have been decreased significantly and now it is up to us to apply the tools and knowledge that have been given to us to eliminate the anxiety and insecurities all together. Chad talks about peeling the onion back one layer at a time and it is now our job to get rid of the onion! I have since subscribed to their youtube channel and have been able to get so much information from the CRDT team through the videos and they display so much passion for all the dogs in their care. If I was asked if I would recommend Canine Revolution my immediate answer would be YES 1000 times over. THANK YOU CANINE REVOLUTION for creating the pack structure for Lou and Boomer but more importantly on giving us the tools to lead the pack!!

We received a surrendered 1 year old Weimaraner last year. Goose was primarily in his crate for well over 8 hours a day for the first year of his life. We decided to take him in to see if we could find him a new home. His high energy mixed with absolutely no training was a challenge for us. The one thing that wasn’t a challenge was his absolute love for us and our other 2 dogs. If we were going to keep Goose, we knew we would need help. The vet recommended trazadone to make him more calm. We gave goose the medication but knew we needed a more long term solution which is why we reached out to Canine Revolution.Canine Revolution and Chris Tipton did an amazing job with Goose. We sent him away for the 4 week board and train and he came back a new dog. Leash walking and car rides are no longer an issue and his household manners have improved immensely. Chris sent us weekly updates and conducted post training in house visits to ensure all our questions were answered and we were keeping up with our homework.Goose receives 1 hour a day mandatory exercise followed by obedience training. The physical and mental stimulation has greatly calmed Goose down and has made him a permanent fixture in our family. We can’t thank Chris and Canine Revolution enough!

CRDT is an amazing team. Their philosophy when it comes to dog training completely transformed our dog, in all the best ways. Before training, our puppy had lots of anxiety and destructive behaviors. It made our plans to start a family very tough and induced a lot of fear. After training, our pup is attentive and so loving. We even got to introduce her to our new daughter, with the best results. I truly thanks CRDT's guidance and foundation for that change. If you have a dog that needs training, do yourself a favor and find CRDT!

Canine Revolution Dog Training is hands down the best dog training company!! I took my 1 year old German Shepherd to Canine Revolution for the 4 week advanced training. Since I live out of state, I was a little nervous at first to take him all the way to Charleston but given the high review from a friend who not only lived locally, but had also taken their dog there for training, I knew it would be a great decision for me and my GS. Chad, the owner and also the one who trained my dog was amazing with my GS over the course of 4 weeks. One of the many things I really appreciated, especially being out of state were the 2 update videos he would send me of my dog each week. It was nice to be able to stay informed with what my GS was learning and how he was doing. Chad was super responsive with any question I had and still is if I ever have any questions. My dog not only came back on and off leash trained, basic command trained, but he also came back with so much more confidence and our bond has been so much stronger. Chad and his team are absolutely a God sent and I would highly recommend Canine Revolution Dog Training to anyone! We look forward to making a trip back to a Charleston so my GS can get some extra training in soon! Thank you again!!!

If I could give 10 starts, I would. I have a rescued terrier mix named Milo (just under 2 years old). He has a LOT of anxiety and EXTREMELY strong willed. I signed up for Canine Revolution's Basic Training package and let me tell you --> it was worth EVERY penny. I'm learning that consistency is key, but I am so glad that I trusted this program. Kevin was Milo's main trainer and he has been extremely professional and reliable throughout Milo's training. I've had many questions even after his training and Kevin has been so helpful throughout it all. I love that they come to pick up and then when they drop off, they stay and answer all questions and explain commands/behavior, etc. I never once felt rushed or like my questions were bothersome. They truly take their time and explain everything. I am so grateful to the entire Canine Revolution team for everything. Milo is a different dog - IN A GOOD WAY! I don't trust people easily with my dog - but I know that he is in good hands any time he's there. I also love that whenever I need to board him, they love on him and also reinforce his training. They also have monthly group meetups which I plan on attending soon... This is not just a 3 week PetSmart training. This is lifelong reinforcement. I will definitely be doing the challenges this year. Thank you again to the entire Canine Revolution team. This has been a truly life-changing experience.

In short, Canine Revolution is fantastic. Completely worth the expenditure, 10/10 would recommend. Every dog we own forever will go to Canine Revolution. Don't hesitate to send your dog.Long Version:As our cute little puppy started to grow, we realized his unruly behavior was no longer cute and was becoming a real issue. We asked our vet for recommendations for trainers and he gave us a few suggestions, one of them being Canine Revolution. After seeing a few of the youtube videos of the dogs they've trained I was sold, but the wife needed more convincing due to the price. One day when she was walking our boy and he was being unruly, she came across a neighbor with a very well-behaved German Shepard. She asked the dog's owner how she achieved such obedience, and she replied "Canine Revolution." Sold.Chris came to our house for an initial consultation, and told us all about our dog's behavior and what he'd recommend. Based on his input and great explanations, we chose the 4-week advanced off-leash training program. Kevin picked up our boy and was his trainer; he was extemely communicative and informative throughout the entire process. Multiple update videos per week and always replied to emails.When Kevin brought Mika back home to us, he was a changed dog. First of all he'd gained about 4 inches in height and 10lbs of weight, but the most noticeable change was in his demeanor and his obedience. He listened!!Now that Mika is 8 months old and 80lbs (still growing!), we're so thankful for Canine Revolution. My wife just had surgery, and I work long hours. She's confidently able to take our boy outside during the day without me and doesn't have to worry about Mika pulling her around or hurting her during her recuperative stage, and he listens always.To reiterate my first paragraph of this long review: Canine Revolution is fantastic. Completely worth the expenditure, 10/10 would recommend. Every dog we own forever will go to Canine Revolution. Don't hesitate to send your dog.

Canine Revolution Dog Training has changed our lives! I reached out to Chad in tears in final desperation. He was recommended by a friend. We were at the end of the road with our sweet girl. We had young children and she was so scared of everyone and everything. She went into defense mode constantly and we were unable to trust her around others. We had tried other trainers, but nothing worked. Chad saved her life and ours. We leave her with him every single time that we go away and she is so happy to see him at any given moment. He taught us how to manage her, but also ourselves in situations where we felt out of control. There are often weekend training sessions that are included in your cost for life! Thanks so much to Chad, Lauren, and crew for your love of all dogs and saving ours. We love you all so much!

I can’t say enough good things about the Canine Revolution team!We have two large young adult dogs which we sent to CRDT for training for 4 weeks this past summer. One had resource guarding issues, which had erupted into attacks several times against our older smaller dog. The other dog was hyperactive and had no prior training when we got him.Chad came to our house for a free consultation and immediately identified the areas that each dog needed help with. During the training period, he sent us videos of our dogs at work with some personal words to us regarding what we should expect when we got them back home. Before the dogs came back home, he sent us a detailed training manual and a list of recommended training tools and products for home use. He also sent us a “report card” describing the different skills that were practiced and what their level of proficiency was for each.When the dogs came home, he visited us twice to train us in the commands that the dogs learned and the proper techniques for managing them at home.We were amazed at the progress that our dogs made during their time with CRDT and their ongoing progress, thanks to the free continuing training classes for alumni.Chad, Chris, Kevin, and staff all love dogs and are very good at earning the dogs’ respect through calm and gentle leadership. We are very thankful to them for restoring peace and order in our household. We highly recommend Canine Revolution Dog Training and will happily send all of our future dogs to them for training!

*** A Life Changer *** If you want your dog to be your best friend and go everywhere with you at ease you need to let Chris Tipton and the Canine Revolution TEAM get involved!!! You get what you pay for.... they have done amazing work with my Husky who had a bit of a resource guarding issue and who was a huge leash-puller, very dominant, and wanted to be the Alpha of the entire family. Vesta (my husky) AND my household have basically been given a new chance at life!! It’s amazing to me how much knowledge and energy they give to these people/ dogs who seek out their guidance for a better life. I wouldn’t trust anyone else!! Vesta loved Chris and had a great time there she has no more insecurities or anxiety issues which were the underlying problems. Day or Night I can contact them with any questions and will get an immediate response and the best part is the training doesn’t stop once they bring her back home.... they have continued educational classes for the life of you puppy!!! I can say that they have exceeded our expectations and I’m so happy to be apart of the Canine Revolution Community 💞💞🐾💞🐾💞

Canine revolution dog trainer has changed my life and the life of my dogs. Best choice and investment I made for them. My cane corso a very sweet boy to humans became dog aggressive over the years, and being a huge breed it was becoming more of a risk when I did have him out in public around other dogs. Bc I had had since 6 months of age and nurtured him back to health at the time our bond is strong and I couldn’t let him go and tear up my dog pack in which he grew up in. Chad who owns the company, and Kevin (my dogs personal trainers) gave me all the confidence in tuning into my dog and the behavior change in him. They rebuilt the trust and respect, making our bond stronger! We can now both live the life style I’ve always wanted to share with my dogs. The freedom of taking him on adventures stress free of something happening if we encountered dogs. And a year later I sent my oldest dog for the same training but more so to work on his anxiety! Like I said best decision I’ve made. It’s worth the inquiry with them if you do have hopes to keep your baby in the family.

Kevin took our extremely wild German Shepard mix, Monte, and trained him (and us) SO well. Now I can take him for walks without fear of aggression, we can leave our home and not worry about anything being destroyed, and he does not rush the door when we have guests. What a transformation! We also plan to utilize the free group training classes in the future for keeping his skills up to date and also for learning new challenges for Monte to overcome. I can't say it enough that Canine Revolution is the reason we are a happy family once again.

Worth every Penny! We needed help after we adopted a second adult dog and he had periods of aggression towards our other dog. Canine Revolution training was able to train him (and us) to understand pack structure. Our dogs are have never had an issue since, and are best friends. Wonderful support community as well and alumni resources with continued group classes for life! Chad and his team are absolutely amazing and you can tell they love what they do and it shows!

I decided to use my home improvement savings to send my 5-year-old Scottie for 6 weeks of basic training with Canine Revolution, and I have not regretted that decision at all. Dory was a rambunctious love when she met Chris Tipton. Before training I could take her anywhere with no issues as long as it was in a neutral location. Once Dory established a place as her turf, the peace was over because she was extremely territorial. No other dogs were allowed to be visible. She growled or barked at humans who came near. Even a year after moving to the mountains, she loudly barked at the comings and goings of our nextdoor neighbors as if they were intruders. All of those annoying behaviors are history now. Fortunately, we never encountered a bear on our daily walks prior to her training. But now if I hear a low growl or a single bark, I know Dory has spotted one - soon enough for us to safely change our course. CRDT was the best investment I ever made! I will be forever grateful.

Canine Revolution has changed our lives !!My dog Rudy is leash reactive while passing other dogs and this was making our neighborhood walks very difficult to endure. I didn’t want to live with the anxiety of how he would react towards other dogs on walks for the rest of his life, so I searched for help. I tried everything..an in home trainer , many many hours on google search, dog day care and self training for many hours. NOTHING changed this behavior. Someone suggested board and train because of the countless time and energy the trainers will put in helping with Rudy’s anxiety and fear aggression. I was hesitant about my “kid” being gone for a period of time away from home, but knew this was the best option for us. I researched/met with 3 companies and HANDS DOWN I signed with CRDT! Chris (trainer) came to my home punctually and evaluated Rudy. Chris was calm, full of knowledge and hit the nail on the head with all of the problems I was having with Rudy and how they will work with Him in making him a more confident dog with decreased anxiety and fear. Chad (trainer/owner) was Rudy’s trainer. Chad sent me weekly videos, emails and updates of Rudy’s progress which made me so excited each time I received them. I could see his progress step by step. When Rudy came home I received a detailed handbook and training session. I had 5 follow up sessions of choice and I continue to attend every Saturday group class (for the rest of his life) to continue with his training and being surrounded by Alumni! The trainers are the most professional, punctual, and caring group of people I have ever met in the dog community . The CRDT advanced package was one of the best things I have ever done! Rudy is doing super well and our training continues daily !I’m living the dog owners dream!

I remember when I was so scared to pass by another dog while walking mine because my dogs would DRAG me anywhere they pleased. In just a few weeks of training my dogs WANTED to listen to me and wouldn't dare pull me towards anything again. Canine Revolution absolutely transformed them into more comfortable and confident dogs. I love working with them and bringing them with me everywhere I go.I never would have imagined this is how good they'd returned to me, I wish every dog could go through their training.

I couldn’t say enough about the great quality of training our puppy received from CRDT! Our life with our puppy has completely transformed. We were struggling to manage our puppy’s disobedience and high anxiety and CRDT sent back a dog that listens, is obedient, is more focused, and her anxiety is greatly reduced! I have confidence in her skills on and off leash, at home and out- I know she’s going listen to me.The extra value comes from all of the support once the board and train portion is over: everything from one-on-one follow up visits, detailed videos about specific training topics, to monthly group classes. You need training too!! And CRDT makes sure that you have everything tool necessary to be successful. Our trainer has been with us every step, always available to answer questions. I would highly recommend Canine Revolution Dog Training!

I can not thank the Canine Revolution team enough for what they have done for my family. Their comprehensive training program and instructors are second to none. Two years ago we rescued our "Stella" from the shelter. Unfortunately Stella had severe anxiety issues, coupled with massive amounts of resource aggression. My wife and I struggled for months trying to help Stella, but her condition only seemed to worsen. Finally we were faced with the decision that Stella may have to return to the shelter. Not wanting to give up, we reached out to Canine Revolution after receiving a recommendation from a friend. Canine Revolution and their experienced team observed Stella and she went through a four week training program. The results were amazing, Stella returned significantly more confident and comfortable with her environment, and continues to benefit from her training received by Canine Revolution. Highest recommendation!

Our beloved rescue Stella had severe insecurities and anxieties and we were struggling as a family to cope. Lost on how to find a balance, we took her back to the shelter; our hearts broken. The very next day we went and retrieved her - we could not live without her. THANKFULLY a dear friend suggested we put her in training with Canine Revolution. The training program was transformative for Stella!!! We absolutely love the continued training and look forward to seeing her evolution continue! Our family and Stella cannot thank Canine Revolution enough! We highly recommend Canine Revolution !

We can't say enough good things about Canine Revolution. Our Bernedoodle, Henry was 13 months old when he had his training. We tried several other dog trainers during his first year with little to no success. Henry would bark, constantly jump on us and was a professional "counter surfer". We have 7 grandchildren and that behavior was totally unacceptable. Chad and Kevin came to our house to fully explain the process. We were very impressed with their professionalism and confidence that they could help us, so we signed him up. We now call our dog Henry 2.0, since he has had a complete upgrade 🙂 Kevin was our trainer and he kept us updated every step of the way. When they brought him back to our house they gave us the tools to continue to reinforce his training. Kevin has followed up with us to make sure we didn't have any questions. We continue to follow the schedule and process that they gave us and we absolutely love our dog. If you're looking for a solution to your dog training needs, we highly recommend Canine Revolution. Thanks Kevin - Jeff, Nancy and Henry.

Although our experience with the CRDT pack was a little different, the results remain the same. There is no company like this one, because they are a family, a pack.This company truly is a family and from the very first moment you interact, you feel that dedication and love. These guys truly know what they are doing, and love your pets as their own.When we first met part of the team (pack), they were introducing us to our new fur-baby, Ella. She was being re-homed and had already graduated from the CRDT program. Chris and Ben were an endless wealth of knowledge and information, always able to answer any questions immediately. They eased us into the transition of bringing Ella home maintaining constant communication and having so much patience with us.They not only sent us Ella's training videos and an extensive manual detailing every training and meaning, but also took the time to train US for Ella. Never once did we feel like we did not belong in their family or feel silly when Chris came to our home. Chris made himself available any time, day or night, for our questions or concerns, and I know that every single employee of CRDT has that same dedication and love for their work, and our pets.We are so in love with our Ella and are able to take her anywhere with us in public and not be afraid that our dog will act out. In all cases, we are more concerned about everyone else's untrained dogs, because we know our girl and the extensive training she has. From lunch on a downtown patio, to routine trips to Lowe's, we are constantly complemented on how well-behaved our dog is and we are EAGER to give them Canine Revolution's name. We cannot imagine our lives had Ella not been with Canine Revolution and we are proud to be part of their pack and continue our training as part of their Alumni group!

I cannot find enough good things to say about Canine Revolution-the people, the process, the results! Our 10 year old daughter desperately wanted a dog and her dream came true about a year ago. It was a perfect match when we were able to rescue Myles and bring him home. For the first few months, he would go everywhere with us and he was such a positive part of the family. As more time passed, he started growling at children, aggressively leash pulling and Vet visits required large doses of medications (that did not work), muzzling and a ton of anxiety for the person who had to take him-ME! Myles continued to grow in size and could no longer be leash walked because of his pulling and prey drive. He stopped listening to basic commands around the house and he was slowly becoming a fearful force to be reckoned with. After multiple attempts with multiple trainers, our Vet diagnosed Myles with anxiety and suggested Canine Revolution. I reached out via email and the rest is history. Kevin was the first person that I made contact with. He was prompt and professional-always answering my barrage of questions in a timely manner. He and Chad came to our house for the meet and greet. They were both so relaxed and confident around Myles. I was so relaxed around Kevin and Chad. I knew that we needed their help and that we needed to be invited into The Revolution. We are now just past our 3 week transition home from the 4 week advanced program. What an incredible transformation! Myles is mannered and gaining more and more confidence everyday. He is able to walk around the neighborhood off leash and really has become quite the celebrity because of his good behavior. Our 10 year old walks him solo and I had him outside with me all day doing yard work. He stayed in his down stay despite those taunting squirrels, barking dogs and enthusiastic walkers by who tried to entice him. It. Is. Just. Amazing. Chad has been so patient with us and making sure that the entire pack feels comfortable with the training. He is planning to come to one of our Vet visits to help Myles-Me and the vet. Is that not incredible?!? Watching our daughter bond even more while training Myles has been a magical experience. They are so much more connected and seem to need each other more than ever. We are eager to participate in the monthly group classes once the quarantine is lifted. The online videos have really helped to reinforce our training at home. Canine Revolution dog training was a game changer for us. We now have our family member back and look forward to growing old with him. I highly recommend making the call today. You’re only regret will be that you did not start training with The Revolution sooner.

So I have two large dogs. Athena (cane corso) and scout (full Aussie Shepard). I got Athena when I was in the army and living in New York. She was a huge mess. She was three months old when we got her. She wasn’t potty trained or house trained. She chewed on things barked all the time and was super high energy and almost too much for my wife and I to handle. I got in touch with Chris and asked if he could train my puppy. I sent her to SC in September 2019 and got her back October 2019. I was extremely thankful for the care he took and love he gave my dog. When I picked her up she was a completely different puppy. She was calm and collected and very well disciplined. The results were amazing. The other puppy Scout, was adopted from the pound. He had separation anxiety and massive abandonment issues. We sent him to train with Chris for only two weeks and what we got back was a strong dog who was more secure than ever. It’s amazing what Canine Revolution can do in just a matter of two weeks. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for our pack!!!

Canine revolution helped my family and I in many ways! The owner really knows his stuff. My dog would not listen to any command I asked of her. I had her sent for boarding school for 3 months last summer. The best decision I have ever made. If your looking to have a stress free life with your furry body! I totally suggest bringing your dog to school with canine revolution. The trainers are nice. And they always send you updates and make you feel comfortable with the new learning techniques.Thanks canine revolution!!!

The trainers at Canine Revolution are incredible. I have a 1 year old border collie who was dog-aggressive, pulled me everywhere on his leash, chased cars, and had endless amounts of uncontrollable energy. After going through one of their training programs he’s a different dog. Walks are enjoyable, he knows how to settle when asked, and I can take him anywhere with me and not worry about any bad behaviors.I have been impressed with Canine Revolution through this entire process. All communications and meetings have been very timely and professional. They are available to answer questions after the training, hold group classes, and have a community page to connect with other alumni from the group. This training is a quality product that is worth every penny.

GAME CHANGER!My husband and I have a two year old lab-pit rescue who was full of severe anxiety and was completely out of control. We couldn't have friends over to our home, even our families stopped visiting us because they couldn't deal with how wild the dog was. We'd been through a few different trainers, and no one seemed to know how to really contain his energy or get him to listen.Chad completely changed all of that!! After sending our pup, Zeus, to Canine Revolution Dog Training for 4 weeks, we now have a dog that listens, obeys, does not struggle with anxiety, and the best part is, we can take him practically anywhere!My entire family, husband, and I were so skeptical that this dog could even be trained. And now, when I go out to lunch, to the lake, to Lowe's etc., my dog comes with me. It's the best feeling walking past strangers, or a child running past my dog and not feel that "panic" feeling of the dog going after the person, or snarling, or scaring the child. People are so impressed with how well behaved he is, and in turn, respect me.Thank you Chad, and Canine Revolution Dog Training for giving me my quality of life back! For letting me now share amazing life experiences with my dog, and giving me the tools needed to continue the training throughout my dog's life. I'm truly so grateful!

I cannot say enough about Canine Revolution and their wonderful trainers. I have a 70 pound German Shepherd that has been a handful. I knew about Canine Revolution when we got her as a puppy but I did not want to send my baby away and I thought I could trained her, I had trained my other dogs! I was not long before I saw I needed help and all together I hired five different trainer. My Shepherd just became more aggressive and reactive. The last trainer gave up and told me to put her on drugs and get her a choke collar and muzzle. She bite that trainer and he never came back.After being gone 4 weeks my little girl is wonderful! I can, and do, take her everywhere with me with the confidence of knowing I can totally trust her. She is so much happier now, so calm! We could not be more pleased!

I made the decision to send my dog King Louie to Canine Revolution after a long string of incidents (emergency surgery to remove a backpack strap from his intestines, two destroyed Bibles, a destroyed passport, picking fights with other dogs, escape artist tendencies, etc). I was worried that I had waited too long for any training (Louie is 3), but my mind was put at ease from the moment canine revolution came to meet Louie for our free in home evaluation. They assured me that it is never too late to start training your dog, answered all questions I had, and made recommendations of which of their programs they felt was the right fit for Louie. From the start everyone was so professional and are obviously experts in their field. Louie loved Chad and Kevin from the start, and left with them for the boarding program happy as a clam, and his tail almost breaks from wagging whenever he sees them now. During his 4 week training time I received video updates so that I could keep up with his training and information on how I could prepare for him to come home. Louie came home a changed dog, but still his same goofy loving self. I am still so impressed with the work that Chad and Kevin did with Louie, they really gave me the ability to communicate with Louie that I didn’t have before, resulting in a lot of stress on both sides. Louie trusts me when we’re out in public, resulting in less incidents between him and other dogs. He is able to relax in a down stay in our house if we have guests over or at a busy brewery with kids and dogs everywhere. People are constantly complimenting his behavior when we go in public, and my friends and family were so amazed at his 180 change in behavior. One of the best parts of Canine Revolution is that they do not leave you to fend for yourself once your dog is home from training. The support that comes from being a part of the Canine Revolution alumni family is unlike anything I’ve ever heard of with other training programs. From individual follow up training sessions to group classes, to boarding services, to a network of all the other alumni, we are never without resources if I have questions or concerns with Louie’s behavior. I cannot recommend Canine Revolution enough, they eliminated the stress of not knowing how to communicate with my dog, and now that we are six months out I am so impressed and grateful that Louie had maintained his training with the help of all of the alumni resources we are offered! Also Kevin now trims Louie’s nails after we were banned from every Petsmart/Petco grooming in South Carolina...what more can I say!

I highly recommend Canine Revolution Dog Training (CRDT). We chose them after reviewing several schools, and discussing CRDT’s training approach with the breeder of our Berniedoodle (Finnley). Our decision has proven to be phenomenal and I can’t say enough about how knowledgable, dedicated and patient Chad and his team have been with Finnley.Their approach of positive behavior recognition while holding the dog accountable is a great balanced approach, which has proven to be extremely effective. Chad and his team are always available for questions, and their library of video instructions and other support material are world class. It’s incredible how fast Finnley learned and retained all of the basic commands as well as more advance training such as distraction work, and their policy of post-graduation follow-up sessions and group classes helps to reinforce the training for the owners and for the dog.The result of this training has allowed Finnley to be an integral part of our family, and has given us the ability to have family and friends over with the peace of mind knowing that Finnley will be calm and respectful. This is especially important for us as we have four small grandchildren and Finnley is a large breed dog.We are constantly receiving accolades from strangers on how well behaved Finnley is when we take him out in the public for walks or into retail settings.Thanks Canine Revolution Dog Training for a job well done!

The staff at Canine Revolution have made such a huge difference in our lives. We reached out to canine revolution because one of our dogs was very aggressive towards other dogs. We had become reactive instead of proactive in our lives (keeping Blinds drawn, sliding in and out doors, strategically walking our dogs). We decided to send three of our dogs to training (a puppy, a aggressive/anxiety dog and a stubborn independent dog) and it has honestly been life changing. Our dogs who were notorious in our neighbor hood for being “crazy”,”bad” dogs were now being complimented on their new skills. The staff not only trained our dogs but provided us with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to handle our pack. They provide opportunities to continue working on the bond with our dogs in group classes as well as personalized follow up classes! I highly recommend the team at Canine Revolution for all types of dogs! Thank you again to the Canine Revolution team for the whole experience!

We contacted Dr Carmichael Premier Doodles because we were having issues with Berlly our Bernedoodles puppy. Even though we did not purchase Berlly from Dr Carmichael he was extremely attentive and helpful, and highly recommended Canine Revolution to us. As a result, we drove Berlly from Seattle, WA to Summerville, SC for his 8 weeks' training. What an amazing experience it has been. Chad and his team are extremely professional. They have transformed Berlly from an uncontrollable lovable monster into an amazing Bernedoodles puppy. We can now fly our 75lbs anxiety free Berlly in the airplane cabin with us all over the country. Berlly is now a much happier dog. Chad and his team spent several days helping us before flying Berlly back to Seattle. Chad gave us unparalleled support, training and tools to work with Berlly once at home. We will drive anywhere to have Chad and his crew to help us develop another successful dog/owner relationship. What an honor… Thank you very much Canine Revolution Team!

We have three dogs that are Canine Revolution alumni. There is a small amount of time that we have with our pets, and there is no reason that time should be anything other than amazing. The program that the team has created gives you the tools and the support that you will need to have a successful dog/owner relationship. The program allows the owner to have an amazing time and bond with their dogs. I will never let any of my dogs go untrained by the Canine Revolution Dog Training crew.

When you make the decision to join the Canine Revolution, you are not just committing to the training of your dog, you are joining a family. Chad, Chris and their crew are amazing people first and even better dog trainers. Our dog Luna is a black Lab who has endless energy. Chad and Chris taught Luna how to heel, come, go to her “spot” and hold a down-stay in the middle of any situation – crowded room, busy store – anywhere. And then they taught us how to ask her to do those things and keep her accountable. They also include continued education classes to keep all our skills fresh and they are so valuable and helpful. My family loves the Canine Revolution family and we recommend you check them out if you have a dog – especially a wild lab. You will not be sorry.

We’ve had the fortune of seeing Canine Revolution in action for the first time at the Summerville Farmers Market last summer. Chad and his team help the dogs and their owners better navigate real life, everyday situations. Fast forward a year and our daughter adopted a five year old schnauzer mix who had been homed three previous times. He was very anxious and showed very aggressive behaviours including going after our neighbors’ children. After a month of training, a different dog arrived home. He is a loving, adorable little guy who loves our older, gentle lab mix. Chad and his team have a human, tried and true method that can involve all members of the family. Through simple commands these pups literally gain control of their environment and can live very productive, happy lives and so do their families. Post training workshops allow for continual learning, reinforcement and socialisation. Thank you Chad Singer your program is awesome and so are you and your team!!!

Chad and his staff are absolutely the best at what they do. They continuously perform miracles with the dogs they work with. My daughter adopted Sulley and it was a nightmare as he was very aggressive going after anyone and anything. Chad worked with Sulley and he is the most lovable dog and you would not believe how well behaved he is. Chad also works with the owner and family and that has helped make the relationship between dog and family a love affair. Thank you Chad and we look forward to your continued classes

Chad and his team at Canine Revolution are amazing. Once your dog goes through the training they are part of the Canine Revolution family for life. You continue to get a great return on investment even after training with the ability to board your dog coupled with alumni training classes. I couldn’t recommend the company or the trainers more. Very worthwhile for those in the Charleston area and those out of town making the trek.

I fully vetted CRDT when considering board and train for my Picabo. Scottish Terriers are known to be challenging and needing a firm but caring hand. They do not trust easily and will test your leadership. This was also my baby and I would not; could not leave her with just anyone. Feeling as sure as anyone could I trusted them with my baby and I am fully reaping the benefits. Picabo loves CHRIS Tipton (her primary trainer) to this day and we continue her training through free alumni classes. This group is a family and they are the best and coolest dog trainers around! Highly recommend!

Having a breed with an extremely high prey drive, I knew I would need extensive training so our family and our Doberman puppy could live the best life together. After much research for the best board and train around, we chose Canine Revolution. Just talking to Chad over the phone, I knew they were the ones for us. I could have never imagined the training my pup came home with. Of course it takes daily working with your dog, but the life Canine Revolution gave us is priceless! The dogs stay in house with their team and that was huge for me! Their Alumni group classes are so AMAZING! I know if I ever have a question, I can always call and get answers anytime. The knowledge their team has and puts into training dogs is nothing short of amazing. The passion they put into training dogs amazes me! I can take my Wesson anywhere I go and know that he is well behaved and we can have a day out together STRESS FREE! Everyone always comments on how well behaved he is.Our walks are so fun. Having a powerful dog like a Doberman, I need full control at all times, I never doubt that I do not have that after training. Did I mention they also board their Alumni dogs too? That was also huge. I can now go out of town and not worry about my boy and he knows exactly where he is and he is stress free (extra training is a bonus while there). I could go on and on...but you can't go wrong with them. Plus I gained new friends along the way with Chad and his team along with all the Alumni!

I cannot say enough about Chad and his team for what they are doing to change the minds of dog owners. Baxter came to us from a 3 way broken home in less that 3 months. Anxiety through the roof, and just off the charts. Wife was about to give him back, when I said training will fix this. We reached out to Chad through our Vet services and pretty much the rest is history. Baxter and our bond is strong, and while he is not perfect, he has become a model family member and a true companion to his fullest ability. I love that the training doesn't stop at the exit plan with you. Weekend, and now one Weekday group outings to alumni to brush up on skills and work out trouble areas is invaluable. I highly recommend Chad and his team to fix whatever you need with your dog. Being able to manage and control your dog at any given moment is detrimental to not only the safety of others, but the safety of you and your dog.

Canine Revolution Dog Training gave me and my Belgian Malinois Roca a quality of life that we would've never had without the training. My Roca needed extensive training because she's very anxious, protective and was becoming aggressive towards adult humans and other animals. She's a very dominant female but with this training we have built a bond like never before. She's trusts me and follows the command structure. She also has massive amounts of energy and quite a high prey drive. She's much happier now that she can just be a dog. She loves to work and she's very busy and with the skills that have been instilled into her thru Chad and the family at Canine Revolution Dog Training. They genuinely care about the animals and the parents of the dog. They make it personal. We are all one big happy family. Anytime I have had a question or a crisis there's no question they make time to help out at anytime. I'm forever grateful that they have given us the tools and abilities to keep us together. I would refer Canine Revolution Dog Training to anyone looking to train your dog or dogs. There will not ever be anyone else to train my dogs but this very committed and dedicated company called Canine Revolution Dog Training. Hollywood should hire them... They're the absolute best!!

Chad's training saved our family!! We were having issues with our dog Remi having extreme animal aggression, attacking her sister Raja to what appeared to us as "without reason or warning". Chad was patient and well versed as he trained US to see how the dogs' body language and behavior can be read to help prevent these instances. Before calling Chad, we had been in touch with many different dog trainers all promising the same thing, but no one felt right until we had our consultation with Chad. I immediately felt like I could trust him and his judgement, he never made me feel stupid or wrong he just confidently and calmly guides you to the answer. Chad is literally the only person in the world I trust with my dogs, I know he has any situation handled! We all feel so blessed to have met Chad and been through the revolution, I would (and do) recommend Chad and his team to ANYONE especially those with behavior issues!!!

Canine Revolution Dog Training is the BEST way to go! We went with CRDT due to the multiple programs offered, professionalism of Chad (and Chris), the follow up lessons, and the classes offered on weekends! They also have weekly videos posted on social media where Alumni can ask questions and received feedback! We love the classes since it's a great way for our dog to socialize with other dogs and people! The CRDT team is very prompt in responding to any questions or issues that arise.Go ahead and save yourself the hassle of having Canine Revolution Dog Training fix the "Other Trainer's" lack of customer care and give CRDT a call! You won't find a team that cares for you and your pet as much as they do!

Through friends and future family I was able to meet and work with Chad at Canine revolution. Our dog Hugo is phenomenal due to Chad's training. I personally will bring my future dogs to him and always recommend.

We are so thankful for Chad and Chris and the wonderful job they did training our Cane Corso, Hank. Our lives were so chaotic trying to manage our days with work, kids, a multi-pet household, and most of all, our out of control Hank. I had honestly given up on ever being able to walk him on a leash, have visitors over without locking him in our bedroom, or having anything delivered without making sure he was distracted in another room in his kennel. After his six weeks of training, we cannot believe the difference. It’s truly changed our lives. Hank can finally really be “a part of our family”. My three year old even said “Hank is a good doggie now!”. My kids can now play with him, the other pets can actually sit in the same room as him, and we all finally get to spend time with him, and just enjoy being around him now that he is calmer, and more well behaved. He truly seems like such a happy dog since being trained and our lives are so much less chaotic. I can’t say enough great things about what they have done for Hank, and in turn, our family as a whole.

Having Chad train my pack of house dogs has been life changing! It was always so chaotic dealing with all the logistics of going in and out for potty, walking, having people over with the four of my sweeties. Enter the board and train process with Canine Revolution Dog Training and it really is “living the dog owner’s dream”. Everything is structured and routine, and life is so much easier! With the “logistics” down pat I’m free to simply enjoy loving life with my doggies! They are orderly as I take them in and out of dogs and vehicles. They will sit in place when friends come in without rushing the door. They will walk nicely on leash, no pulling. I use the “hands-free” leash option much of the time in town environments and this is great with my arthritis and other health problems. When not in city environments but rather at home in the country I can take them for long walks without the leashes and they stay close and safe. If you haven’t had your dog off leash on a country path you need this in your life! Gus, my sweet Golden Retriever, used to run away anytime he was loose and I was Never able to let him be loose. He is dependable to walk with me off leash now and we both love our walks. Petey, my hound mix, was so scared of everything and everybody yet wild that there was no walking with her at all. She would go crazy over every squirrel or other distraction and not come when I called. I can do yard work with her keeping me company now; if she sees something to chase she looks to me and without my approval she won’t move. The Poms are a joy as I hang out inside or out, staying in place where I tell them. In the evening when I want to just rest in my chair with a book, the whole gang will stay in their “spot” so I can escape into my book without interruption. My and my pack are so happy. Thanks Chad!!

We sent our bernedoodle puppy to the 3 week advanced board and train program. We are beyond thrilled at how he is transitioning home. Chad worked with us at drop off to ensure we were comfortable with all the commands. As a family we are all working together to ensure Buster knows all he learned while he was away will continue to be the expected behavior.

5 stars isn't enough. Canine Revolution is LIFE CHANGING! Our dog Recon is a pittbull/mountain cur, and has a history of dog aggression and all around unruly behavior. After he began attacking our new pitt, I looked up dog trainers in the area, and decided to give Chad a call. He came to our house and spent nearly 2 hours getting to know Recon and discussing in depth with me how he trains. Recon took to him immediately, and after he left I knew I could trust him with my dog. Chad made room in his schedule to take Recon early, and sent me video updates throughout his training. My boy came home yesterday, and y'all, he is a new dog. Chad determined that the root of his aggression/dominance was insecurity, and he helped Recon learn to work through those feelings and make better behavioral choices. I have to state that this process has been just as much teaching me as it has been my dog. Chad has taught my family how to communicate properly with Recon, so that he understands what he needs to do. We have also learned structure, and this is important for any dog living in a domestic environment. Walking him is an enjoyable experience now. The atmosphere in our home is peaceful. Recon is no longer stressed and anxious, he is calm and happy. Chad even taught us some drills to work on with our other dog, so that he can learn too! I am beyond grateful for the dedication Chad puts into his training, there is no doubt he truly cares for dogs, and teaches them in a positive way. Ceasar's got nothing on this guy! Chad is the real deal! We are looking forward to our continuing ed classes, which are included in our training package! I mean, come on.. ya can't beat that! Call him. NOW. 😉

Canine Revolution Dog Training with Chad Singer, has been the best decision I made to build the relationship with my Belgian Malinois, Charlie. Prior to meeting with Chad, I was loosing my mind with Charlie. He would pull me down the road on a leash, run off anytime he had a chance, and would pace in the house after coming in from the outside kennel. We kept Charlie in a inside kennel lots of the time because he could not calm down. After Charlie went through training with Charlie he did a 180 turn around. Now Charlie is a wonderful addition to the family. Charlie now is cool come and collective after Chad taught us how to properly manage his energy (very high endurance dog), keep him accountable for his obedience, and keep up with his training. Now Charlie goes places with us as a family, plays with the kids in the yard, and goes on walks, as well as bike rides off leash. Chad helped our family and Charlie more than I could have ever imagined. Chad's training is worth every penny! If you are having any issues with your dog Chad Singer is your Man!!! Chad is wonderful at keeping you up to date with progress with you dogs training and great at keeping up with the follow up visits. Most important listen to Chad and follow all his instructions when you get your 4 legged family member back!! I have posted videos before and after videos of Charlie on Chad's Facebook page.New Post (same email) Different family member!!My name is Ella Rogers and my daughter, Joan Rogers bought a Belgian Malinois, named Charlie. Joan has written a previous review, however, I wanted to add to hers with my relationship with Charlie before and after training from Canine Revolution Dog Training with Chad Singer.Prior to training, I wanted ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with him unless I had to until Joan came home from work. I am retired and stay home. Joan wanted Charlie to be an inside dog, however, she purchased a kennel for outside, so I only had to deal with Charlie on a need to basis until she came home from work. Once she came home and after exercising him, she would keep Charlie in an inside kennel, until I went to bed (which is very early). Joan decided the best option was to send Charlie to be trained for the benefit of the whole family. After speaking with several trainers, Joan selected Chad to be the best fit. I will be honest, I thought the training was a bit pricey. However, it was Joan’s dog and money. Now, after 3 weeks for the Advance Training Plan with Chad, all I can say it was the best decision and worth EVERY penny. Not only did he build Joan and Dalila’s (my granddaughter) relationship with Charlie, Chad gave me have a relationship with Charlie. I LOVE Charlie now!!!!!!! He has become my best buddy and companion during the day. Charlie is a joy to be around and I enjoy my days with him keeping me company. I miss him when Joan takes him places and I even take him places myself. Charlie has not once been in the outside kennel or inside kennel from the first day he came back from training with Chad. Again, Chad has not only changed Joan and Dalila’s life, but mine the MOST!!!I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Chad Singer with Canine Revolution Training to EVERYONE who needs to build their relationship with their dog!!! Chad has a magic touch with dogs! I must also recommend that not if, but WHEN you pick Chad to be your trainer, listen to all his advice. We have kept up with all Chad’s training lessons and advice, because it has been the best thing we could have ever done with Charlie.Thank you, Chad, for giving me a relationship with Charlie.

Canine Revolution is amazing. My wife and I used Chad after researching several dog training programs for our little boy Scout. From the beginning Chad made us feel like family and you could see the passion he has for animals. He ensures that not only is your pup well prepared after graduating but that you are as well. His follow-up sessions and group classes are fanatic to continue building the pack leadership skills. Scout and I can't thank Chad and his family enough and are happy to be called CRDT alumni!

Chad is the best. Made me feel comfortable knowing that he would take care of my baby and teach my puppy everything she needed to be a great companion.

If you’re looking to live the dream life with your dog, then you need to get in touch with CRDT today. It is the best investment that I have made for my beloved pup, Rosie. I researched many different training programs in the low country before I decided to give Chad a call, and I’m so happy that I did! His kind spirit, hard work ethic and passion for animals are only a few things that make him an amazing trainer. I can’t thank CRDT enough for giving me the leadership skills to live an amazing stress free life with my girl. We are honored to be apart of the CRDT alumni!

F.A.Q

What kind of training methods do you use?

We train in a balanced, rewards-based dog training system.  What this means is that we are going to teach your dog through rewards.  Most commonly we will use food rewards to build focus and engagement and teach the dog obedience behaviors.  Once the dog fully understands the expected behaviors, we will then begin to randomize rewards and begin to hold the dog accountable for disobedience with a leash.  Once a dog understands accountability with a leash, we will then condition the dog to a remote collar which allows you to control your dog’s behavior from a distance or off-leash.  After the dog has a full understanding of reward and accountability, we will proof all training through distraction work by taking them to a wide variety of places (hardware store, park, restaurant, coffee shop, farmer’s market, beach, etc) and ensure they understand the training even with distractions present.

Where will my dog stay during training?

All dogs enrolled in a training program will stay at our Lead Trainer’s home for the duration of training.  He has converted an entire area of the home for dog’s to remain at.  Your dog will be fed twice a day (unless special dieting requires more or less feeding), exercised a minimum of twice per day, and be trained throughout the day.  Anytime the Lead Trainer, other trainers, or caretakers are not present, or the Lead Trainer is asleep at night, your dog will remain in a kennel.  Dogs that have had previous bad experiences with kennels are rehabilitated to view the kennel as a good place to be.

Do you use electronic collars in your training?

We do not believe that a remote collar (electronic collar) should be the “backbone” of any training system, however it is an extremely valuable training tool that we can utilize.  Once a dog is taught all expectations and obedience work we will condition them to a remote collar.  This is because we consider the remote collar to be your “invisible leash”, meaning you will be able to influence and control your dog’s behavior with a remote collar off-leash or from a distance.  The sensation from a remote collar is very similar to a TENS unit, however it is something that our dogs have never experienced before so it can be surprising to them.  We have an extremely thorough process to teach the dog what the sensation from the remote collar means and how to respond to it that the dog clearly understands.  We DO NOT endorse the use of remote collars without thorough and appropriate conditioning for the individual dog.  Remote collar conditioning should only take place after the proper relationship building, teaching of expectations, and training have occurred.

How much do your services cost?

We have a wide variety of training services and programs available.  All of our board & train programs vary in pricing depending on the length of training and are paid in two payments.  Our behavior modification and rehabilitation services depend on the level of rehabilitation required (determined at consultation) and are added to a board & train program.  Our specialty training is typically conducted in a “private lesson” format and priced depending on the amount of work required for the particular dog with the selected specialty program.  Seminars and clinics depend on the topic and number of attendees in the event.  We do offer services outside of the lowcountry area however we do charge for mileage and travel operating costs for travel requirements.  Contact us to discuss particular fees for your situation and desires.

Do you offer Group Classes?

We offer group classes for all alumni who have graduated from one of our board & train programs so that we can continue to support the relationship they have with their dog.  We do not offer group classes for non-alumni.  If there is a group of friends who would like to train together, we can set up a seminar and / or clinic, or a series of them, to help them work with their dogs.  This will be dependent on the individual dogs in the group, some dogs are not compatible for this type of teaching environment.

My dog has already mastered all obedience commands / behaviors. Do you offer a lower rate to only treat anxiety / insecurity / etc.?

If your dog has already mastered all obedience commands / behaviors, you must be able to demonstrate this on a level that is equal to the obedience that we train.  We typically ask to meet with you in a distracting environment such as a market, hardware store, outlet mall, park, etc.  Your dog must be able to demonstrate the following obedience behaviors:

-Heel (left side of body)

-Stay (Down position) for 20 minutes with varying distances between dog and owner

-Recall from a minimum of 15 yards away

If your dog can demonstrate these obedience behaviors, we will evaluate your dog and can provide a lower rate to treat specific undesirable behaviors.

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes we offer discounts for active duty, veterans, law enforcement, first responders, and for multiple dogs being trained.

Do you have a wait list?

We typically have a two month or greater wait list.  In order to reserve a training spot we require a signed contract.  We can either email a contract to you upon request or bring one with us to a free in-home consultation at your house.

My dog has bitten 9 people, my friends say I should euthanize him. Do you think you can train him?

There is no need to euthanize your dog, we have rehabilitated many dogs that had a biting history and have yet to encounter a dog that could not be trained or rehabilitated.  The process to achieve rehabilitation is not easy, we must change the dog’s association of the cause for biting.  We do this through a proven process that follows this progression: build trust, build engagement and focus, teach obedience behaviors, socialization, proof all behaviors in distraction work.  Once your dog has completed training and returns home, you must maintain your dog’s training, but we will be here to support you every step of the way through training sessions, follow-up sessions, our alumni online resource, facebook alumni community group, alumni group classes, and you can always call, text, or email us.  What maintenance of training entails on a daily basis is physical exercise and daily obedience practice as well as maintaining the provided structure and boundaries.  We also recommend that you perform socialization and distraction work at least twice per month, which can be done by attending our free alumni group classes.
