Dog Training in Raleigh, North Carolina

Bringing a new dog into your life comes with a lot of love, but it also means a lot of work. Among all those cuddles, walks, and games of fetch, you’ll need to address behavioral issues to ensure your dog grows into the respectful, well-behaved adult dog you envisioned. 

It’s not reasonable to expect every dog owner to be able to perform obedience training on their own. Not only does it require knowledge about training methods, but it also takes a lot of time and effort. At The Dog Wizard in Raleigh, North Carolina, we offer the expertise and compassion you need in training. Our dog trainers understand that all dogs are different, so no two dogs will receive the same training plan. Our goal is to cater to every pet — and pet parent’s — individual needs so your dog meets its full potential.

Dog Behavior Problems and Prevention

We help clients and their furry loved ones identify and overcome a variety of preventable behavioral issues.

We Love Helping Pet Parents!

The purpose of dog obedience is more than just teaching your dog basic commands. The main goal is to establish trust between dog and dog owner, persuading your pet to listen to your voice above anything else. It can be difficult to get your dog to listen to you over its natural instincts, but it’s essential to keeping your dog safe and healthy. 

Our team is passionate about training dogs — we know how important good behavior is. We don’t just want your dog to sit when you wave a treat in front of it; we want it to return to you instantly if it ever accidentally gets off-leash. Our professional dog trainers use tried and trusted methods to encourage your pets while simultaneously personalizing each training class to meet whatever your unique needs may be. 

We offer our training in Raleigh, NC, as well as the following areas:

  • Raleigh
  • Apex
  • Cary 
  • Garner
  • Wake Forest
  •  Holly Springs
  • Fuquay-Varina

What Does Dog Training Include?

The key to behavior modification is teamwork. We don’t leave pet parents out of the process; rather, we work with both owner and dog to achieve the desired results, taking into consideration your concerns and training goals, and never push your dog past their personal boundaries. 

We offer a variety of services and training sessions including private lessons and board and train options for your puppy or adult dog. After your dog has participated in one of our classes, it can show off its skills in front of its new friends at one of our frequent reunions. You can learn more about the types of services we offer through our site.

No matter which training program you choose, you can expect the same level of dedication and care throughout. Our experienced dog trainers will take into account your dog’s behavior problems and devise a plan that calls for patience and acceptance. Your dog will be more susceptible to learning if it’s happy, so we strive to create a comfortable environment where your dog can learn at its own pace. Whether you’re interested in basic obedience or addressing larger issues like separation anxiety, we will work with you until your desired results are achieved. We’re only happy when you and your dog are.

Our Programs

I can’t thank Greg enough for working with my dog Spud for 2 weeks. He left home with obedience troubles, and was a bit embarrassed when it came to walking him in public on a leash. The day he returned from his training, he has been a completely different dog on and off leash, and now obeys commands better than ever. Greg has been extremely thorough when it comes to staying in touch with Spud’s practice at home, as well as helpful tips and adjustments that I can try to further improve his behavior around friends and family. It all starts at home with being his owner, staying on top of his daily routines and forever improving the quality of life between me and my fur baby. There’s so much more to be said, but to Greg and the support staff of Raleigh Dog Wizard, I thank you so very much.

My 4 year old doodle completed the 14 day board and train program to address gentle greetings, loose leash walking, and coming when called. I was SO nervous to send my dog off with someone I didn’t know for 14 days but Greg made me feel so comfortable. I know Bennett was well taken care of and loved receiving pictures while he was away. Bennett came back with amazing leash manners! Greg spent time with me to go over all of the new things that Bennett learned so I could follow through with it. The next day I had a new couch delivered and Bennett listened to stay on “place” (his bed) the entire delivery time! I was so impressed! Thanks to Greg for helping give both Bennett and I a tune up on training!!! Highly recommend the Raleigh Dog Wizard!

His work with our lab/pit mix really changed our lives. Our doggo is happier and looks and listens for queues taught by Greg. With that foundation and continued reinforcement from us, everything from leash behavior and basic commands have really given us a quality of life improvement. I have already recommended Greg and The Dog Wizard to my friends. Give him a call! Thanks Greg!!
