About OurCornelius, NCDog Training

AweDogs Dog Training provides you with comprehensive dog obedience training in Cornelius, NC.

Our approach is different from other dog training companies. Our professional dog trainers are equipped with the latest training strategies and our programs are designed not only to create happy, confident, fun dogs, but to also prove that the behaviors created work against the most severe distractions. We offer training for all levels and breeds, from minor dog obedience issues to severe aggressive behaviors.

This unique and gentle approach to dog training allows us to start training puppies as early as 8 weeks old and progress them quickly. Unlike traditional training programs, we concentrate on teaching dogs a system of learning rather than a few basic commands. Once the foundation of learning is established, they can begin to figure out any new behavior in a matter of a few minutes.

Our Cornelius, NC dog trainers are here to make your life easier by teaching positivity and confidence!

Behavior Modification Training

Apart from our training programs, we can help your dog or puppy overcome specific behaviors and emotions, ensuring a happier, healthier pet.


Dealing with an aggressive dog can be stressful for your household and challenging when integrating your pup into daily life. At AweDogs Dog Training, we specialize in transforming these behaviors into positive, harmonious interactions. Our structured sessions and expert guidance can help you address and resolve aggression concerns effectively.

High Anxiety/Fear

Training a dog with anxiety can feel like a daunting task. Whether your dog is fearful of other dogs, strangers, or being separated from you, having the guidance of an experienced trainer can make a significant difference. We specialize in assisting dogs in overcoming their anxieties and fears, helping them lead happier, more confident lives.


Is your dog easily distracted by other dogs, people, or noises, making it challenging for them to listen? These distractions are a part of everyday life, which is why our trainers specialize in high-distraction training. We teach your dog to ignore these distractions and focus on you, making training enjoyable and fulfilling.

Reactive dogs often become overwhelmed in ordinary situations, reacting with barking, lunging, and growling at minor stimuli like a person or another dog across the street. This reactivity is typically rooted in inadequate socialization, fear, or improper training and, if left unchecked, can escalate into aggression. Our training programs are designed to identify your pup’s…


Socialization plays a crucial role in shaping a well-mannered and confident dog. The optimal window for socializing your pup is between 10 and 16 weeks of age, yet not all dogs have the opportunity to do so during this time. Our program is tailored to offer a safe and structured environment for these dogs to…

I have a dog training business in California. I flew out to North Carolina from California to learn from Ryan as part of a personal continuing education program. Ryan is an amazing trainer of dogs and a teacher of people! So much so, that it is difficult to form the words to describe him. Ryan’s passion for dogs and his commitment to helping people is overwhelming. I think one would be hard pressed to find a better trainer in this entire country.
Ryan is charming, witty and fun!! His style makes training with him not only the most informative education opportunity for his clients, but a blast to be a part of. I look forward to the day that I can spend time learning from him again!
