Meet the Trainers

Stacy Fodrie
Franchise Owner & Trainer

Stacy started out as a client to the Dog Wizard searching for help with her dog who was very timid and scared of everything! She met a couple of trainers and learned a lot but the thing that stood out most to me was how much more enjoyable her life was with her dog after his training! I gave it some thought for about a year and decided I also wanted to be able to make a difference in a dogs life through training. He gets to watch volleyball games, go to the beach, and participate in all the activities I go to! I love rescuing dogs and giving them a great chance at life.

I have a pitbull named Gary and he is one of the best dogs I have ever had. He showed up one morning under my car, he was very underweight at 27 pounds, skittish, and had heart worms. That was about 4 years ago. Today Gary is heartworm free, 65 pounds, and loves interacting with others. My very best friend is Bear. I rescued him when he was nine weeks old from the animal shelter and we bonded immediately. He has been through the best and worst times of my life and my goal as a trainer is to be able to give others the relationship I have with him. I wouldn’t be who I am without the influence of these two dogs and I am always ready to help another.

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.

Puppy Programs

Puppy class is a lot like breakfast

The most important meal of the day. Starting a puppy off right is like giving your puppy the roadmap to success with the fastest route already highlighted. We can prevent so many behavioral problems that we see in older dogs. Bad habits can form quickly, so please do your puppy the best favor you can: sign up for for a puppy program! You can find more specific program information on the location page specific to your area.

Private Lessons

Private & Group Training

We have several programs that offer private lessons.  Private lessons are best suited for clients that have tricky schedules or prefer to meet one on one with a trainer.  Depending on your dog’s needs, your trainer will create the screws to make your program a success. Private programs will consist of a set number of lessons and 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

Matt did a great job with our dog, Juno. She did the two week Jumpstart program. We are so impressed with the progress she made in just two weeks. We have much higher expectations with her now that Matt showed us what she is capable of. We’ve really learned a lot from him on Juno’s journey to being a civilized dog. We highly recommend the Dog Wizard Jumpstart Program!
