Dog Training & Enrichment
Help your dog be the best they can be
A well-trained dog is a happy dog – and part of a happy family. At Central Bark® Atlanta, our dog training professionals use fun and positive, reward-based techniques to help dogs of all ages develop important life skills and behaviors.
We offer both individual training and enrichment sessions as well as group classes to reinforce good habits and foster the loving bond you have with your dog. Training builds a foundation for good canine citizenship and helps develop happy, social, and well-rounded dogs.
Certified Dog Trainer
Abby Seay has been a Georgia Peach all her life and knew early that animals had a very special place in her heart. Abby has been at Central Bark since 2016, beginning as a Dog Handler in playgroup, working her way up to Assistant Manager, becoming a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, and is now Store Manager of Central Bark! Abby has a fantastic relationship with all our clients – both two-legged and four-legged! As our trainer, Abby focuses on Training Tutor, Private School, In-Group Socialization, and Parent/Teacher sessions. She says that the best way to train any animal is to train the owner, and she loves to do so through education, helping families build a stronger bond with their pet through training. Abby strives to ensure parents aren’t just participating in a “training session” but instead are involved in a pawsitive relationship building experience with your best pal!!
Certified Dog Trainer
Caren embraces Central Bark’s reward-based paw-losophy that focuses on fun and positive reinforcement. Caren is a CPDT and ABC certified trainer, and has been training dogs since 2010. Caren was one of the first to join the Central Bark team shortly after it’s opening in 2014! Caren focuses on our Private School Program. Rather than training being conducted in group settings, Caren comes to your home and works with your family and your pup on a one-on-one basis. While Caren is thrilled to work with families on basic obedience, Caren’s is also truly passionate about working with a dog that may have developed a negative reaction to an experience; a dog who might be displaying some fear or reactivity. Helping these dogs become more comfortable with their surroundings is one of the most rewarding parts of training for Caren.

My puppy's tail wagging happily every morning that we arrive is the best commendation and review I could have.
