Dog Training in Fredericksburg, Virginia

There’s nothing quite like being a dog owner. Bringing a dog into your own home comes with fun, joy, and lots of love. However, owning a dog involves more than playing fetch and teaching it fun tricks. If you don’t implement consistent training techniques, your pet may wind up with several behavioral issues.

It’s unreasonable to expect every dog owner to be able to stay home and take the time necessary to train and optimize dog behavior. At The Dog Wizard in Fredericksburg, Virginia, we employ a team of experts who are ready to work with you and your dog to address any issues you may be dealing with. Our goal is to strengthen the bond between pet parent and pet, leaving your furry friend confident and considerate.

Dog Behavior Problems and Prevention

We help clients and their furry loved ones identify and overcome a variety of preventable behavioral issues.

We Love Helping Pet Parents!

Dog training isn’t just about getting your dog to sit when you want it to. The right dog trainer will take the time to get to know your dog, assessing its abilities, capabilities, and relationship with you. We don’t just want to teach your dog how to respond to basic commands; we aim to change the way your dog thinks, persuading it to trust you even over its own instincts. Through our classes, your dog won’t just learn how to run to you when you say “come” — it’ll know to return to you the second it accidentally gets off-leash. 

Our programs aren’t one-size-fits-all. We tailor our dog training classes around your needs, which means everybody gets their own unique experience. Whether you’re in need of basic obedience training or require assistance dealing with more advanced issues, such as hyperactivity or aggression, our team can create a special training program designed for you.

We offer our dog training services to the Fredericksburg area, including:

  • Locust Grove
  • Stafford
  • Spotsylvania
  • Triangle
  • Quantico
  • Woodbridge
  • And the surrounding areas nearby…

What Does Dog Training Include?

Our training sessions are centered around teamwork, patience, and acceptance. We don’t just cast you to the side as some training programs do; instead, we work closely with owners and pets to figure out the best way to move forward. We understand that every dog will learn at its own pace, and we will never push a dog past its comfort level. We also accept that no two dogs are the same, which is what helps our professional dog trainers deliver such a personalized level of care. 

At The Dog Wizard Fredericksburg, we offer several services for you to choose from. No matter what you select, we focus on a positive training experience; all our classes revolve around positive reinforcement and are aimed at elevating your dog’s overall wellness. Many people enjoy our private classes, which can take place in the comfort of your home or at our facility. Our private puppy sessions cover several topics, including housebreaking, tethering, problem-solving, and confidence-building. In addition to private lessons, we offer group classes to help with socialization, as well as day training and board and training. We don’t just say goodbye at the end of training; many graduates of our group class enjoy attending reunion support sessions, where you can show off everything your pet has learned to other graduates!  

At The Dog Wizard in Fredericksburg, we offer a lifetime guarantee. Our training is designed to deliver permanent results thanks to our mission of fostering trust between you and your pet. By the end of our training sessions, your dog will value your word above everything else.

Karen helped me understand my K9 by interpreting the K9’s reaction to scent, body positioning, and overall movement. Once I was trained to understand the K9 we were able to build as a stronger team.

Karen is a positive person who takes the time to explain not just how but the why we do things, and her patience in  working with the handler to ensure a balanced and meaningful training is amazing

Karen’s passion and commitment to the industry is demonstrated by her love and understanding of K9 behavior. Karen has been a personal Mentor to me over the years and has had a great influence in my training career in K9 Disaster Response.
