“Very Knowledgeable Trainer”
Adam has made a significant difference in my 1 year old Lab’s behavior. I thought he was pretty much un-trainable, until I took him to training with Adam.

Bless you Adam!
This message is for anyone who is looking for a great trainer and or advice on improving the quality of YOUR dog or YOUR life. I have used several trainers throughout my life for my dogs and I must say, I am so blessed to have come by Adam. He has a simple way of teaching that you and your dog will pick up immediately. Your dog will understand rewarding for good behavior and you will understand how a dog thinks and why Adam’s techniques work. You and your dog working together to create a harmonious life together is what I got out of this experience. I have just finished classes with my Great Dane and will start classes for my Australian Cattle Dog. I highly recommend Adam for training in group classes or one-on-one and trust him completely to solve and behavior issues you can think of.

Wonderful! Exceeded my Expectations
Adam was amazing with Kai. He was great with explaining how to carry over what she learned from training and how to implement this into the home. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone who is seeking training. As for the facility, I felt incredibly comfortable with leaving Kai there. This is where I would also board Kai if I had to go out of town. Very Pleased.

Our golden retriever puppy started with Adam at Carolina Ranch around 14 weeks. The combination of private sessions and Stay and Learn for a few weeks has produced a 6 month old who is controlled and respectful of authority. Adam has a very unique and layered approach to training which is easily implemented. The results are indisputable and we are reminded of his great work each time we go on a walk and Coach receives compliments for being “so well behaved”. It’s been a game changer for our family as we happily and peacefully adjust to a new puppy!

While there, I saw they also had a dog trainer, Adam Bush. I scheduled an appointment with him, as Norman and I started training in Vegas, but we both needed more. If you want to see an amazing trainer, look at Adam’s videos on their website. Within MINUTES of his handling Norman, I saw a difference. Since I needed to board Norman for a week, I thought it would be good for him to also enroll in the “Stay and Learn” program. He would be in daycare and also get individual training from Adam. It was a great decision as I received excellent feedback from Adam and Norman was improving his skills while boarding.

Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Chance and I had a great experience since we started going to training at Carolina Ranch. When Chance was a puppy, I took him to another place that was about $30.00 cheaper, but he did not learn at all. Chance is a very special dog with a energetic and strong personality. His first successes happened after having private lessons with Adam Bush. Chance became a much better dog and I a much better owner. He still has his strong personality but he chooses better behavior and we are both much happier. We have just finished our first group class, the Canine Good Citizen class. It is thanks to Carolina Ranch Trainers that Chance received his certificate. Sweet crazy Chance was always treated with love and respect in all of his training experiences at the Ranch. Chance and I definitely love the Carolina Ranch staff!! Thank you all for leading us to success!! We are looking forward to starting our new class!

Like a new dog!




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

In a few weeks, Adam was able to train our dog in ways we honestly didn't think would be possible. We are both happy and relieved at the behavior she is now exhibiting. She is so much easier to enjoy now, and seems to have grown up out of her bratty attitude and into a more mature and loyal friend.

Canine Good Citizen Class




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

This class was lots of fun and a great learning experience! Adam and Diane were both extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to ensuring that all participants were successful. We received detailed training instruction both verbally and written along with one-on-one assistance as needed. I'm very happy with the huge improvement in my dogs demeanor. We will definitely continue on with more classes!

Amazing Results, Great Follow Up!




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Adam taught my lab mix confidence. Training on the climb has given her a safe place where she has control. This translates to a less fearful dog. She now makes non aggressive choices when encountering other dogs as well as new people and situations! After the session ended at Carolina Ranch, Adam came to my house to check on her progress and address questions. Amanda had also helped tremendously with introducing a new dog into my two dog pack. Her insight into dog behavior has been incredibly valuable. Her hands on style was vital for ensuring a successful outcome. Without question, Carolina Ranch offers the best in dog training. I would not consider going anywhere else.

Skilled and Patient!




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Adam is extremely patient with our challenging pup. He is constantly working on new ways to keep her motivated.


Stay and Train was a great way to go on vacation and come back to a well behaved dog.




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Roman stayed at the Ranch for 2 and a half weeks and did their stay and train program with Adam. Adam basically is like the dog whisperer. Our dog pretty much just got on board and began listening to Adam right away in the consultation. He was a 4 1/2 month old puppy at the time and we definitely returned to a dog with a good foundation more self control which helps everywhere with a puppy.


good course for mature dogs - probably not for puppies

Adam Bush's expertise is awesome.




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Adam is an amazing dog trainer! The title "master trainer" describes him perfectly. He is efficient, gentle and caring with my dog, and gets wonderful results. All the staff that I have dealt with have been very friendly and helpful. I could not be more pleased.


We both needed training




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

I adopted Norman 9 months ago. He is now 1.5 years old and 94 lbs. We were professionally trained and he has the basics down. Having recently moving here, I needed help, as something was missing. Norman tends to be "punk" and does not always pay attention to me, especially on leash with distractions. After one session with Adam, I saw the difference. When Adam modeled the techniques with Norman, he was the dog I knew he had the potential to be. I will be practicing what we BOTH learned, and returning for more lessons.


Informative, Helpful, Comfortable Environment




Review of Carolina Ranch Dog Training

Very glad we signed our Great Dane up for the Group Obedience. Adam clearly took the time to be familiar with all the dogs that signed up before they even arrived for the first session. He demonstrated wonderfully how to handle our dogs, and gave reference material to help us thru the week. This class helped Horace, but more so it's helped me learn how to handle him to get great results.

Misty did well in her go-home lesson yesterday. She had been working with our trainer Adam, in our day training program. She gets some obedience training in the morning and gets to play in doggie daycare throughout the afternoon. That makes for a well trained, social and tired pup.
