Hello, My name is Jacob Medlin and I would like to tell you a little bit about why I am so passionate about Sounds of Obedience. I grew up in Statesville North Carolina and have always been drawn to working with dogs. I graduated from Animal Behavior College with a certificate in dog training in 2015 and have been professionally working with dogs ever since. I interned in agility and behavior modification dog trainers, I have taken a continuing education course through the Charlotte Humane Society, and have previously worked as a kennel tech at Mooresville Animal Hospital. I volunteered at the Iredell County Animal Shelter for four years as a dog trainer and a dog tester.

During that time I grew fond of one dog, he was a champagne-colored pit-lab mix with lots of energy and one big heart named Duke. Duke was one of our abuse cases and had severe separation anxiety. I would always go get him when new dogs came to the shelter and needed to be tested for aggression before being put up for adoption. No one seemed to want to adopt my testing buddy; after working with him for two months, I took him home and he is now my best friend. Duke was not alone, there were so many dogs like him who had severe behavior problems due to their abusive pasts and struggled to get adopted out or brought back to the shelter after being adopted, that's when I came up with the Sounds of Obedience Save and Train program. In the save and train program, I adopt dogs from a local shelter and then house break, crate train, leash train, and teach them basic commands while correcting any unwanted behaviors. When the dogs complete the program, then we put them up for re-adoption to find their forever home. 

already have a four-legged best friend? I still offer private one-on-one dog training sessions as well as board and train options available. I can't wait to get started empowering you towards a better relationship with your furry best friend.


Success Stories

Jacob is so amazing! He has worked with me and my GSD who was not trained as a puppy at all. There were immediate results with just 1 hour working with Jacob, she immediately took to him and was like a completely different dog. I highly recommend his services and will continue to work with him with my dogs!

Jacob is AH-MAZING with dogs. He can make the shyest dog his friend, and the craziest his ever attentive student. He rescued two dogs, and has trained them extremely well. If you want a kind, smart, and considerate dog trainer; Jacob is the one for you and your pup.
