Trent Steele
Franchise Owner & Trainer

Trent began his dog training career in 2009 when he decided to train dogs for DockDog competitions. He helped Smoky Mountain DockDogs push off from the dock as a founding member. Trent’s trained dog, Alex, placed third in the DockDog World Championship, Master Division, in 2012.

Trent has also trained dogs to hunt and chase geese. Hunting and geese chasing both require that dogs are trained with great recall and restraint.

Over the years Trent has continued to develop and expand his skills and knowledge in dog training. In 2017 he decided to take his love of dog training to another level by becoming a very successful franchisee for The Dog Wizard.

Training Programs

Board and Trains

Extended Day Training Program

Board and train programs are great for clients that have busy schedules and need help getting a jumpstart in their training.  Although a big part of the program’s success lies within you the client, we can get a major jump on the repetitions and practice, making it a much easier process for a busy owner to follow through.  Essentially, it is like you send you dog away to learn a new language, and when we bring them home, you have to continue to speak and follow through with the new language.  Board and Train also include a lifetime of free support to clients that receive their program graduation certificate. You can find more specific program information on the location page specific to your area.

Puppy Programs

Puppy class is a lot like breakfast

The most important meal of the day. Starting a puppy off right is like giving your puppy the roadmap to success with the fastest route already highlighted. We can prevent so many behavioral problems that we see in older dogs. Bad habits can form quickly, so please do your puppy the best favor you can: sign up for for a puppy program! You can find more specific program information on the location page specific to your area.

Private Lessons

Private & Group Training

We have several programs that offer private lessons.  Private lessons are best suited for clients that have tricky schedules or prefer to meet one on one with a trainer.  Depending on your dog’s needs, your trainer will create the screws to make your program a success. Private programs will consist of a set number of lessons and include a lifetime of free support to clients that receive their program graduation certificate. You can find more specific program information on the location page specific to your area.

Testimonials

We got a German Shepherd puppy for Christmas and had no idea what a handful she would be. We were to the point that we dreaded having her out of her kennel because she was so jumpy and biting and nipping at us and we didn’t know where to start to train her. We wanted a dog that could be a loving family dog that we could trust to be around small kids and a dog that would listen to us. We found Reagan Williams and called her and she was able to come out the next day and help us with our puppy. We chose to work with Reagan and we signed up for the two week program. Reagan took her home and started immediately working with her. She sent us videos daily and gave us updates and pictures. We were amazed at how well she worked with our puppy and how much our puppy retained from her. When Reagan brought her back to us it was like a totally different dog. I can’t wait to start working with her and for her to become our family pet. We will definitely use Reagan in the future for any other training needs we have. I loved knowing that our puppy was in Reagan’s home and she worked with her like our puppy was hers. She took her places and socialized her around other dogs and it was a wonderful experience for our puppy and for us! Thank you a Reagan!!
