I have had the opportunity to work with Candy training several dogs. She is very knowledgeable and works very hard to meet your training needs. If you're in the Lakeland, Florida area and looking for a great trainer look no further.

Candy Hart

Candy Hart has spent more than 20 years working to learn the languages of the wild. Working at Sea World for 7 years, hands on with aquatic life, lead her on a journey to find a more communicative species to work with. It was a natural progression for her to step into dog training.


She moved forward with this dream and went to National K-9 Dog School for Dog Trainers.  Upon completion of this training she gained the Master Trainers Certification and began working with Southland Dog Training located in Lakeland, FL.  


 Working with all breeds of canines and their behaviors there is always one thing that reaches your heart more than the others. For Candy this is service dogs. For her what makes this so special is seeing your dog become more than just a pet. They are someone you and your family come to rely on. Watching the progression of your dog take on a role that is so meaningful is a reward in and of itself. 


For each and every dog Candy trains, her goal is to make your experience as positive as possible, while making sure your pet becomes a member of your family.
