We love our job and we are passionate about seeing the transformation in both owner and dog when they learn to work together. In addition, while we can teach your dog almost anything, it ultimately comes down to your (and your family’s) relationship with your furry-friend. With our private dog training lessons, we not only teach your dog the skills it needs to be obedient and well-behaved, but we teach you, your spouse, your kids, and anyone else how to best use those skills so you can have a long, healthy, and happy relationship with your dog. 

Our dog training is not just about teaching behaviors (sit, come, down). Instead, we believe in teaching your dog how to make better choices and how to listen to you instead of their impulses. Group dog training classes are a great way for you to learn to teach your dog how to best communicate with them. Group Class environments teach them how to be engaged and to follow through with these commands even in the most distracting of environments. Interested in speaking with our dog training experts?

Therapy Preparation

A dog can be great for using its positive energy to brighten the everyday lives for all those who are sick, in trouble, or elderly. The therapeutic value of dogs is undisputed, and can be a very rewarding experience for both the dog and the person they are assisting. Therapy dog work is one of the most amazing ways to share your dogs delightful energy and spirit with others. Not all dogs are suited for this type of work, but at our Mooresville center, we can help you prepare your dog for their certification and evaluate if they would be a good addition to the therapy world. We will prepare you in all the necessary ways for your dog to pass their test and become a therapy dog so that your team can visit therapeutic facilities whenever you would like. If you are seeking a more intense Service Dog training and certification, we are partnered with the Paws for People Foundation, which is an organization that trains and places service dogs throughout the country. Start spreading the love with your dog — get in touch with us to learn about our therapy dog training classes.

Baby Preparation

Are you expecting a baby soon? Are you anxiously waiting to see how the dog reacts when you bring them home? Do not have the added stress of not knowing how to handle introducing a dog to your new baby — come to our Greenville location for your Baby Preparation, dog training classes and learn how the transition can be quite simple and easy. Whether this your first baby, or it is just your dog’s first baby, we can help prepare for your new arrival, so you are not worried and stressed about what might happen. It is never too late to start the dog training classes, but we recommend that you try to start between your 4th and 6th month of pregnancy. Our Baby Preparation classes are held monthly, so sign up for our next session today!
We suggest that you do NOT bring your dog to these classes so you can concentrate on the information being taught without any distractions.

Socialization

Our socials are run for any of our clients who have been through our dog training programs, or for any of our Puppy Preschool graduates that are six months or older. Our sole purpose for these socials is to improve social skills for dogs that are lacking in social graces (don’t worry, any dog that is not great with others has a muzzle on, and only one non-social dog is in the group at a time). These dogs depend on happy-go-lucky friends to show them the way! Our socials are run with structure in mind, but also letting dogs be dogs. We feel it’s so crucial for young dogs to learn the skills to understand that not every dog wants them all in their face. Learning how to have good manners with ALL kinds of temperaments may save your dog from harm in the real world. But mostly, it’s a nice, controlled, safe play group for your pup! We like to take the opportunity to work on human social skills for our pups as well, like no jumping! Contact us to learn more about our dog training socials.

Support Group Class

This is our way of saying….we are here to help you for the long haul!

We are here to support you, so we promise our graduates lifetime support through our Support Class. Upon graduation, you will begin coming to our weekly group class once your pooch has completed their dog training. These classes are designed to reinforce your dog’s skills in high-distraction settings, and provide a forum for continued support for our clients.

Class is held in different area locations which are listed weekly in our Events Calendar, and we highly encourage people to come as much as they like for the rest of their dog’s life! We consider our clients to be a part of our Dog Wizard Family, and we look forward to seeing all of our graduates at Group Class each week! Contact our dog training experts with any questions.
