Lance has loved dogs since he was a young boy. He began developing his dog training skills with his first dog. Lance has worked for many different trainers, being exposed to many different systems and methodologies. Lance has been involved in dog sports like French ring, mondio ring, psa, and DockDogs.

After 20 years of developing his dog training skills under other trainers and retiring from the Essex County Sheriff’s Department, he decided it was time to branch out on his own by becoming a The Dog Wizard franchisee in 2017.

Training Programs

Board and Trains

Extended Day Training Program

Board and train programs are great for clients that have busy schedules and need help getting a jumpstart in their training.  Although a big part of the program’s success lies within you the client, we can get a major jump on the repetitions and practice, making it a much easier process for a busy owner to follow through.  Essentially, it is like you send you dog away to learn a new language, and when we bring them home, you have to continue to speak and follow through with the new language.  Board and Train also include a lifetime of free support to clients that receive their program graduation certificate. You can find more specific program information on the location page specific to your area.

Testimonials

Lance is amazing. We decided on the jumpstart program for our 4yr old dog. From the beginning Lance was nice and very easy to work with. He kept us updated on how she was doing and posted pics and videos on the Facebook page. When he dropped her off you could tell Athena had bonded with him and enjoyed her time with him. He spent as much time as we needed to get comfortable using the e-collar and educating us on her training. From the moment he brought her back we were impressed. She wasn’t easily distracted anymore and we could have her not on a leash in our front yard which is a very big deal. He was easy to get in touch with for follow up questions.

We are very happy with upbeat K9 and especially Lance he has given us the freedom to be outside with our dog without the fear of her running off. He has given us everything we were wanting and more.
