Welcome to The Dog Wizard Knoxville

It’s not magic.

It’s dog training done right.

Expert Dog Training in Knoxville, TN

Transform Your Dog

No one gets a dog anticipating problems.

We do not dream of our dog being hard to walk, destroying the sofa, or having aggression. We rather dream of leisurely walks, playing fetch, and lounging on a raining day.

We are here to make that dream come true.

No matter if it is hyper, out of control behavior, aggression, nervousness, separation anxiety, or helping your puppy start his life off right, we have just the program for you.

All of our dog trainers at The Dog Wizard Knoxville 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. Our training is not just about teaching commands like sit, down, and come.  We believe teaching your dog how to relax is equally important – and this is skipped in SO many other training approaches.

Treats or no treats, collars or harnesses, toys or no toys, corrections or no corrections, electronic collars or no way?  Truth is, almost every training styles, methods, and philosophies out there has pros and cons. Our philosophy is simple. It takes a balanced technique to create a balanced dog. As in any relationship, good communication is essential. We believe your relationship with your dog is hinged on you and your dog’s ability to understand each other.

Most trainers concentrate solely on the dog understanding you, but we put just as much value (if not more) on you understanding your dog and what they are trying to tell you. By establishing an effective two-way line of communication between ourselves and our dogs, we are able to actually have communication back and forth instead of just command after command.
Besides getting to do more with their family, what does your dog get out of all this? A more balanced and productive life with happier owners!! Half of our job is training the dogs, the other half is coaching and teaching you, the owners, so that you can become confident and skilled handlers for your dogs. Unsure that our training approach will be a good fit in handling your pup’s issues? Not to worry! We offer free evaluations, unlimited lifetime follow-ups, and a money back guarantee…what do you have to lose?

Trent has made our life with Molly and Prince so much easier. We have had them since 8 weeks old Trent came and met us and our babies and we have been so lucky to have him help us. He trained us humans and the puppies and it has been worth every cent.

Truly life changing!!! I was so discouraged, I was ready to rehome our new Weimaraner puppy. I decided to call Trent he came the same day and did an assessment. Exactly a week later he took her for 14 days and did whatever he did and she is like a totally I mean totally different dog. No biting, jumping, clawing, chewing, also she knows all basic commands. We can finally enjoy being in the same room with her! We highly recommend Trent and his training program!!!

I have not experienced The Dog Wizard, however I had the pleasure of working with Jen and let me just tell you she is awesome. I have two female pit bulls (one being deaf) that got into a horrible fight and I didn’t know how we were ever going to get our normal life back. But we did thanks to her amazing skills. I highly recommend her and her team.
