No one gets a dog anticipating problems in Lake Norman and our dog training experts can help!

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 rainy 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.

The Lake Norman Dog Wizard is a dog training company that seeks to make humans’ lives easier and dogs’ lives better throughout the Lake Norman area. The number of discarded dogs placed in shelters for behavior problems alone is heartbreaking. We know that if these dogs had the opportunity to be trained, they would be sitting at their owner’s feet in complete contentment. We know all dogs have the potential to be great companions and we want to give every dog in Lake Norman the chance to reach that potential.

Don’t become a statistic or “put up with” an unruly dog.

No matter what your goals are, we can give you the well trained dog that you’ve always wanted. A dog that will reliably come to you, does not jump on people, or destroy your home. The Dog Wizard Lake Norman can show you how to walk your dog off leash. The possibilities are endless for your canine companion. What does your dog get out of all of this?

They get to go on more walks, visit new places, and most importantly be more involved with the family. You would be amazed at how many businesses there are in Lake Norman that allow dogs into their businesses. We offer free evaluations and we guarantee results. We are a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, so you can be confident that your pup is always in safe hands.

Melanie is indeed a dog whisperer. My three and thirteen year olds when to her “camp”. Went in as devil children. Came back angels. I can’t explain it, but they are now socialized and 100% house trained. They seem happier. Melanie’s magic was the best thing we have ever done for our family.

Melanie was a huge help with issues we had with our rescue pup and helped us out when it was time to expand the dog family. We have had Jessie with us for a week and she is well trained and a joy to have. Thank you Melanie for always being available and truly caring about the dogs

We are so happy with the results of the 2 week camp and in-home training session! Our rescue, George, is less anxious and less reactive. Scott truly knows what works and has taught us how to continue to help George using his techniques at home.
