What We Can Help Your Dog With
Dog behavior can be mystifying for someone who doesn’t work with canines on a daily basis, but we know exactly how to motivate change. Some of the things we can help with include:
Our Dog Training Programs
When you get a new puppy, you need to dedicate resources and a significant amount of time to prevent it from picking up behavioral problems as an adult dog. If you do have an unruly older dog, there’s no need to worry. With structure, strong leadership, and clear communication, we can help any dog to become the best version of itself possible.
Most of our classes include basic obedience and address different specialties depending on the needs of dog owners and their fur babies. Below are the Greenville dog training classes we provide.
Private Training for Puppies in Greenville, SC
This class is for brand-new pet parents who are looking to make sure they build a forever bond with their puppies and prevent any behavioral issues from forming in the future. In addition to basic obedience classes, pups between the ages of six weeks and five months old learn the following:
- Sit on command
- Potty training
- Object socialization
- Health and safety
Perfecting these basic skills sets you and your furry friend up for a joyful lifelong companionship.
Puppy Jump-Starter Courses
With puppy jump-starter courses, your little bundle of joy stays with us for 14 or 21 days, which it spends with our team of expert trainers. Our classes are perfect for busy pet parents with pooches aged between 10 weeks and 6 months old. We take care of all the foundational aspects of training at our friendly boarding facility, from leash walking to housebreaking.
Group Training Classes
We know that helping pet parents understand the training we put their dogs through is just as important as the actual process. Group lessons mimic real-life scenarios, with all the potential distractions you’d expect to find outside. This provides a unique opportunity to teach lifelong lessons to your furry friend. Some of the group sessions at The Dog Wizard include:
- Foundation classes for basic commands and moderate behavioral issues
- Freedom-class for off-leash skills
- Therapy preparation training classes
- Preparation for bringing a new baby into the home
- Socialization classes
- Our ongoing support class for long-term behavioral success
For some pet parents, the most important thing is learning how to work together in harmony with your furry friend. While we have the skills to teach your dog just about anything, it’s ultimately your responsibility to maintain what it’s learned. Private lessons allow the whole family to sit in on training and learn by getting involved with the process. We also offer advanced goal-oriented private sessions that we hold at our upstate dog training facility.
During bog boarding, we whisk your adult dog or puppy away to our training facility and teach it all the skills it needs to live a content and happy life. It’s not easy for a dog to learn how to make the right choices, especially with so many distractions like people and other pets out in the world. However, if it doesn’t learn how to remain calm and take positive action, it can lead to frustration and behavior problems.
We’ll work closely with your dog to devise an individual training program that addresses its unique needs. Programs for adult dogs last for 7, 14, or 21 days, and puppies come along for 14 or 21 days.
Ongoing Support Group Classes
For the best results, we provide everyone with the opportunity to attend ongoing support classes to ensure your dog retains what it’s learned. It’s also a great way of refining all of its skills and teaching it anything new that we learn.
You’ll benefit not only from our expertise but from the other members of your Greenville Dog Wizard community of dog owners.
