Free to Be Dog: Fear Free Certified Dog Training for Moore County, Wake County, and Wilmington Dog Owners
Do you have a dog that jumps on guests, pulls on the leash, is exhibiting aggression or is stressed when you're not home? Issues like this can leave you feeling overwhelmed and a little lost, but you're not alone, and you don't have to navigate this journey by yourself.

Our philosophy is rooted in the conviction that happiness arises from understanding, clear communication, and positive reinforcement training methods.

This strengthens your bond and makes for a more confident, well-adjusted dog that you can share your life with.
“We rescued Tilly when she was a little over a year old. Apparently she had been chained in a yard for much of her young life. Her immediate instinct was to escape through any open door. Thanks to Tiff and her ‘magic word’ training when Tilly does escape now she comes running when we use the magic word.“
“Amanda has been amazing! She has been patient, calm, and understanding with Moya [our dog], the very stubborn Shiba. She has helped us make great strides with Moya. The whole family feels more comfortable with our dog now thanks to Amanda!”
“Free To Be Dog’s group classes helped transform my dog’s behavior. Most importantly, she [Tiff] taught me the significance of building a trust-based relationship with Rex [my dog]. I recommend the Free to Be Dog team if you are seeking a trainer who is passionate and highly qualified in their field.”
