About US

So why are we called WizeDogs, because dogs are exactly that! With the proper training and care the sky is the limit! We believe they are old souls and a treasured gift to us. Dogs give us unconditional love and shape our lives forever, why not give them all the care that they deserve.


At "WizeDogs Training & Boarding" we understand that your dogs are an extended part of your family so we sincerely have your pet’s best interest at heart! Whether your best friend needs “pawsitive” training or cage free boarding, look no further…

Meet The Trainers

We are students of dog behavior, our methods and techniques have evolved over decades of teachings & practical field experience. We have had the pleasure of working under many Champion Canine and Equine trainers and the biggest lesson we have learned in this industry is that “you never know it all about anything”!  With this in mind, we remain open to various styles of training techniques and update our knowledge on an ongoing basis. We only believe in “Pawsitive” dog obedience training, this provides a happy experience and dogs are then eager to learn.


No two dogs are alike and it our job to discover what makes them “tick”. Once we find out what motivates a dog we will capitalize on their strengths to help build their weaknesses always keeping in mind to set them up for success! We believe in the five “C”s of Confidence, Calmness, Consistency, Communication and Concentration with both the dogs that we train and also working with their owners. Establishing hierarchy & having sound training mechanics are critical; by having a calm and confident approach it imparts calmness to the dog and allows him to focus on the task at hand. In today’s world of instant gratification many dog owners look at their pets as prepared – pre-packed or take-out food. We love to live in the world of “presence” and slow it down a notch. Animals give us that gift of truly living in the “now” and a good trainer progresses the dog at his own pace. This presence is a gift that animals give to us and it is proven that because of this people gain a therapeutic experience when they have a well-trained dog. It is our pleasure (truly) to see each “Aw-Ha” moment of the dog’s transformation and we measure success by aiding in building your relationship with your dog to a respectful, well-behaved and loving life-long partnership!

When I'm away from home man, oh man, do I miss my lil' dude. The only thing that makes me feel better is knowing that he is on a mini vacation of his own with WizeDogs! I love getting texts and pictures of him having a blast at the park or snuggled up for a nap. Cherene is incredibly professional, kind and flexible. She's gotten me out of a few last minute binds when I get called on a last minutes work trip. I am so glad that I found WizeDogs!
