Expert Dog Training in Fort Collins, CO
Transform Your Dog
No one gets a dog anticipating problems.
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 raining 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.
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 styles, methods, and philosophies out there has pros and cons. Our philosophy is simple. It takes a balanced technique to create a balanced dog. As in any relationship, good 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 what they are trying to tell you. 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. We also strongly believe dogs have innate needs that must be met for them to feel balanced. What this means is dogs like to socialize, think, problem solve, and use their instincts, and if not allowed to do this and forced to be a “human” it makes them act in ways that are not natural or balanced.

Fort Collins dog wizard helped us with our dog who was afraid of new things and new people. They did an amazing job during the training program as well as offering incredible support after the program to make sure everything is still going well. Would highly recommend using them for any training your dog needs!
Jess is a life saver! Our dog was wild and crazy and needed some work. Jess did an awesome job with him and gave us all the tools to help with him now as well as in the future!
