At The Dog Wizard Jacksonville, NC there is nothing we understand better than dogs, and there is nothing dogs understand better than our unique training programs, which are designed to fit your dog’s behavior, specific issues, age, and history. We know that obedience and good behavior are not only desirable traits for you to see in your dog, but they are essential to your furry friend’s happiness. Better behavior means more freedoms, and more freedoms mean more fun, more adventure, and being a more integral part of the family.

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.

We believe that every dog is unique and every client faces their own set of challenges unique to their life; in order to effectively prescribe a solution for you, we ask that you set up a time for a consultation so that we can get to know you and your dog better.

All of our dog trainers at The Dog Wizard come to you with the knowledge, technique, and passion for what they do that enables them to understand the best and proven methods for training your dog. After your initial consultation with your personal dog trainer, they will sit down with you and discuss the best methods of training, the pros and cons of each, and which one we believe to be the best choice for your specific dog and your expectations.
