CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 24, 2021 – The Dog Wizard Charlotte is proud to announce it has won the category of Best Dog Trainer for a second consecutive year in Charlotte magazine’s Best of the Best Awards. Referred to as “The BOB Awards,” the annual awards recognize the city’s finest service providers in a multitude of categories, from food and entertainment to retail and wellness.

“We’re thrilled to receive this honor for a second year, and beyond proud of our team for standing out as the top dog trainer in the Charlotte area,” said The Dog Wizard Charlotte Owner Danielle Kharman. “We strive to foster an environment in which dogs thrive and their owners gain new perspective, and look forward to continuing our award-winning services for many years to come.”

Winners in each category are determined by Charlotte magazine’s dedicated team of current staffers, as well as former staffers and regular contributors. Judges have personally experienced each winning establishment, as well as their competitors, to determine the “Best of the Best.” In addition, select categories are open to the Charlotte community for voting, which begins in January each year. The May “Best of the Best” print issue of Charlotte is dedicated to highlighting each winner, showcasing their business, accomplishments and more. The awards have been presented and celebrated for more than 20 years.

The Dog Wizard Charlotte is owned by Kharman and Emily Nolan, whose dog training goes well beyond basic teaching behaviors such as “sit,” “come,” and “down.” They teach dogs how to make better choices instead of giving into their impulses, how to be engaged and how to follow through on commands even in the most distracting of environments. Their end goal is to instill obedience that becomes a way of life for dogs, and not just tricks or occasional following of commands.

The Dog Wizard is a nationwide mobile dog training and facility-based franchise that offers an alternative to traditional obedience training. Focused on the individual needs of both the dog and the dog owner, the company prides itself on an open-minded approach based on the unique learning style of each dog. Pet owners are immersed in the training experience in a “train the trainer” format, as a way to strengthen the bond with their dog for long-term success. The Dog Wizard’s unmatched behavior modification tactics lead to dogs becoming trusted family companions.
