Dog Training in Washington D.C.

Welcome to The Dog Wizard

Let’s Get Started

It’s not magic.

It’s dog training done right.

No one gets a dog anticipating problems in Washington D.C. and our dog training experts can help!

We do not dream of our dog being hard to walk, destroying the sofa, or having aggression. We rather dream of leisurely walks, playing fetch, and lounging on a rainy day.

We are here to make that dream come true.

No matter if it is hyper, out of control behavior, aggression, nervousness, separation anxiety, or helping your puppy start his life off right, we have just the program for you.

We believe that each dog is different just as each human being is different. Different methods of training can prove more or less effective depending on the dog. That is why we have educated ourselves on all established methods and integrate this knowledge when appropriate based on your dog.

Our own unique method of training at the Dog Wizard is what we have found to be most effective in various circumstances and settings. For instance – the goal is not just to teach your dog the “come” command, but to ensure your dog understands that it must be listening for your voice or watching for your command in any calm or anxiety producing environment.

Our vision as a local dog training company in Washington, DC is to help make training your pup fun and beneficial for the two of you. Whether your dog needs training for obedience, aggression, or separation anxiety, put your trust in our DC dog trainers. We take the time to get to know your dog so that our training techniques properly motivate them to learn new tricks teamed with great behavior. At our dog training company near you in Washington, DC, we strive to not only teach your dog to respond to commands, but to help them understand and grow emotionally. Each dog is different, which is why we believe it to be important for you to educate yourself on your pup with the help of our dedicated DC dog trainers.

Scott did a great job helping our two suburban dogs adjust to the city life!  They are walking much better and are much more confident with all of the noises around them.  They are happier and I’m much less stressed about walking them and taking them to the dog park!

My Dog Maya (American Bulldog) is sweet but scared and powerful and simply could not tolerate other dogs near her. Scott worked with us for six lessons and we used a special collar and immediately saw results. Today after graduation Maya behaves with other dogs beautifully and our own anxiety abated. This was our second trainer … I wish I went to D.C. Dog Wizard first

Scott is an outstanding trainer, he trained my two chocolate Labs and let me tell you they were unruly. However, the training doesn’t work if you don’t do the work which is daily repetition with your dog. I noticed a significant change in my dog’s behavior in 2-3 weeks. I can even take them off-leash now and they sit still until I tell them to move. DC Dog Wizard lives up to his name!
