Dog Training in Atlanta, GA

Welcome to The Dog Wizard

Let’s Get Started

It’s not magic.

It’s dog training done right.

With all the different training philosophies out there, we believe there is one thing everyone can agree on; no one gets a dog anticipating problems or issues. Everyone dreams of a dog to take relaxing walks with, cuddle on rainy days, play fetch with, introduce to their friends with no jumping, and most importantly that unconditional and no judgement love that only a dog can provide. Dogs are actually complex thinkers and processors, so with a high number of dog related issues in the world, a lot of opinions have formed.

Treats or no treats, collars or harnesses, toys or no toys, corrections or no corrections, electronic collars or no way? Truth is, almost every training style, method, and philosophy out there has pros and cons. Our philosophy is simple. It takes a balanced technique to create a balanced dog. As in any relationship, clear communication is essential. We believe your relationship with your dog is hinged on you and your dog’s ability to understand each other. Most trainers concentrate solely on the dog understanding you, but we put just as much value (if not more) on you understanding your dog and their behavior. By establishing an effective two-way line of communication between ourselves and our dogs, we are able to actually have communication back and forth instead of just command after command.

The goal of our training is to create happy and confident dogs who know what we need from them and are equally happy to be part of a working and balanced relationship with their families. Our dog trainers Atlanta also strongly believe dogs have biological needs that must be filled for them to feel balanced. Dogs have been bred for centuries to be our companions and work with us. So, it’s important to provide them some mental stimulation and leadership.  They socialize, think, problem solve, and use their instincts, and if not allowed to do this and forced to be a “human” can result in numerous undesired behaviors.

Justin and the rest of the ADW team were quick to respond, super helpful, and very friendly. Kat is absolutely AMAZING!! I highly recommend Atlanta Dog Wizard to those of you on the hunt for a solid training program.

Wiley was reactive – lunging/barking at runners and bikers, jumping on guests in our home, pulling on his leash, barking, etc.  Kat worked her magic and now Wiley can walk calmly on the Beltline, which we never thought would be possible!

Having both of my dogs go in their program has changed my life and allowed me to enjoy my time with my now well behaved dogs even more. My experience with them has been nothing but positive and would recommend using them in a heartbeat for anyone looking to get their dog trained.
