Welcome to DogHaven, where it really
is all about the dogs!
DogHaven is located in Charlotte, NC and have been serving our
community since January 1999. We offer private and group training in
agility, obedience, rally and behavioral management. Our methods are
based on positive reinforcement without the use of force or pain. We
endorse the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior's
positions on punishment,
dominance and puppy socialization, and
support a 'do no harm' policy.
Doghaven is owned and operated by Karl and Deborah Knowles.
Deborah is certified through Certified Professional Dog Trainers
(CPDT) and a graduate of Companion Animal Science Institute (CASI)
with a diploma in Animal Behavioral Technology. Karl and Deborah
have had combined over 45 years experience in working with
people and their dogs. Our primary
goal is to make living with your dog easier and more enjoyable.
Join us and the DogHaven family in an enjoyable time while
learning in a relaxed, stress free environment. See why we
