At the Humane Society of Charlotte, our pet behavior/enrichment program has been designed not only to make sure animals who stay with us are happy, active and fulfilled – but also to help ease their transition from shelter life to forever homes. Once you bring a pet into your life, HSC wants to do whatever we can to help them stay part of your family, and that includes behavioral support from our experienced behavioral team.

We believe that with a positive training plan and basic life skills your dog will lead a happier, healthier, and more productive life. Our training philosophy is based on behavioral science, the human-animal bond, and positive reinforcement.
