Dog Training in Grand Rapids, MI

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 issues or struggles. Rather, you dream of having the perfect companion. A dog to enjoy walks in the park, a relaxing hike off leash, playing fetch on those wonderfully warm days, and snuggling on the gloomy days. If we’re honest with ourselves, no dog is perfect and we love them even more for their imperfections.

Rarely does anyone get a dog that they don’t need guidance with. So your journey begins with research for the right trainer for your family. It can be overwhelming! There are so many philosophies and techniques in the dog training world, each having pros and cons. So what makes The Dog Wizard different?

We believe in balanced techniques to create a balanced dog, and refining your dog’s comprehension of obedience so it becomes a way of life. Our goal is to create happy and confident dogs who are eager to be a part of a balanced and working part of their families.You’ll be amazed how much happier and calmer your dog is when they are using their brains! The benefit of having a reliable dog is TONS of freedom. You and your family will enjoy including your dog in more activities, feel less stressed about your dogs manners, and be at ease knowing your dog is just as happy as you!

Sarah is AMAZING!!!! I just finished the 8 week freedom program with her and she truly is a dog wizard. My pup and I are so much happier together, I can’t thank her enough. Grand Rapids Dog Wizard is worth every penny! Sarah’s patience with the dog is endless, she treats them as if they were her own fur baby. My family and I will forever be grateful for Sarah.

Andy did great with our 4 year old German Shepard. My wife, who has spine issues, can now walk her without the pulling, she is like a different dog. The training not only gave our dog more confidence, but also her humans. Grand Rapids Dog Wizard not only trains the dog but also the people in it’s life. We wish we did this a few years ago.

We can’t speak highly enough of Sarah and the work she did with our dog Sophie. Sophie is a rescue and has always been very nervous around people and new situations, and had some dog reactivity. But, she was also so energetic and crazy excited. Sarah worked with Sophie to increase her confidence and channel her energy. It is like having a different dog. Sophie is much more confident and calm( but still has her spunky personality). This was truly the best money we ever spent!
