We believe in the five “C”s of Confidence, Calmness, Consistency, Communication and Concentration with both the dogs & their owners. Our core belief is that no living person or animal benefits by learning from a "fear based" reality. We do not utilize ANY shock, choke or Prong collars in our training. Yes, establishing a leadership hierarchy is important but we prefer teaching you how to have a mutually healthy & respectful relationship.
Dogs love to please their owners and also like to have a job, we teach them to love their job!

Our beloved pets are all unique and have different personalities. For that reason, a variety of "Pawsitive Leadership" training styles are implemented capitalizing on their strengths and together we build a sound foundation. It is our pleasure (truly) to see each "Aw-Ha!" moment of you & your dog's transformation. Our techniques are all humane and each dog is progressed at their own pace. It is proven that WizeDogs "Pawsitive" methods have lifelong results. We cannot hear it enough of what a therapeutic experience owners have while in training with their new well-mannered dog.

Let's Get Started!
It is never too early to start training your puppy; it is a misconception that you should start them at 6 months. At 6 months the dog is almost 4 years old in human years – would you wait to teach your child until then? This early stage of development will shape your dog’s behavior for life. The bond you will build with a well-trained puppy will benefit the relations with all your family members and you will be glad you did it!
If you truly want a positive training program we suggest you shop around. At WizeDogs we pride ourselves on not using any Shock, E-Collars, Prong or Choke chains. WizeDogs true testament of a well-trained dog is one that does not require a painful device and as humanitarians, we discourage the use of such devices.
These are now commonly referred to as "Training Collars" or
"Educator E-Collars" - Yiks!
