If Your Dog Is Easily Distracted, Too IMPULSIVE, Or Just Doesn't Listen...
WE CAN HELP!
Professional, Loving Training From Melanie Perry, “The Dog Wizard of Gastonia”
No matter how severe your dogs problems are, I have the tools and training to turn your wild child into an obedient, friendly member of the family in 3 weeks flat!
Here's a sneak peak at some real live training:
And here we do some training that even breaks through a dog's BIGGEST distraction:
Oftentimes, I’m the 2nd or 3rd trainer a dog owner has visited and I can get it right when everyone else fails!
I’ve been a dog owner for 30 years and a professional trainer for 8. Here are the 4 “secrets to my success:”
1. I change the dog, not just the behavior.
There are A LOT of trainers out there who don’t get this right. A dog can be punished into submission, but it will just cause different kinds of problems down the road.
For example, giving your dog a swat on the butt every time he barks might stop the barking, but won’t erase the anxiety that causes it. In fact, he’ll probably get more anxious.
Instead, I teach dogs to be mentally calm by introducing them to new rules about how the world works. This takes consistency and structure, but can be achieved in a matter of weeks when done correctly – not months or years like some less effective sources might tell you.
2. I truly understand dog communication.
If your dog ran off into the hills tomorrow to join a wild dog pack, how would he communicate with them? How would the new pack communicate back? Understanding how dogs think and communicate is key to effective training.
Now, I don’t get down on all fours and growl or anything weird like that. But I use the same nonverbal commands dog use with each other – concepts like spatial pressure, eye contact and consistency – and the dog quickly understands the message I’m trying to get across.
3. I train you, as well as the dog.
Dogs, just like people, are shaped by their environments. There are certain things you’re probably doing without even realizing it that are making your dog act out. All it takes is one time meeting your dog and I’m sure to give you some “Aha!” moments that you’ve never realized before.
If you want your dog’s behaviors to change, yours will have to change, too. The good news: you probably only have to make a few small tweaks for BIG changes in your pup!
3. I'm a HUGE dog person.
I totally get your hesitance about bringing a stranger into your dog’s life. That’s why I treat every dog as if it’s my own. When your dog’s with me, he’s family.
Like when it was freezing cold last winter and I took all the dogs out of the kennel home with me.
Or when I help extra problematic dogs past their training date for free because I genuinely want to see progress. It just doesn’t feel right returning a dog who is on the verge of a breakthrough.
When you see the dog as an individual you’re helping, not just a task to work on, you see progress faster and have more fun doing it!
And I’d love to help you for free :)
We’ll set up an evaluation meeting so I can see how you and your dog interact. After helping hundreds of dogs, just playing with y’all for 15 or 20 minutes will give me some deep insight into the causes of your dog’s unique problems.
I’ll pull back the curtain and tell you exactly how I’d help your dog, and why I’d use that certain strategy. You’ll walk away with a priceless “Aha!” moment: you’ll get a complete picture of why your dog is having problems and what you can do to fix it!
Other trainers are charging $50-$200 for this type of advice.
I’m happy to give it away for free.
From there, it’s totally up to you if you’d like more of my help or if you’d like to put my advice to use yourself. :)
The form on the next page will ask you a few brief questions about your dog.
I'll contact you soon after and we'll set up our time to meet. :)
PS! Still thinking it over? Here’s more proof:
Like Lucy, the little Papillion who whined so loudly when she was left alone in her tiny apartment that the neighbors complained. After I helped her, she was cool and confident and could even be trusted overnight.
Or Patton, the German shepherd-lab mix. His owners were worried they’d have to put him down after he bit a neighbor. They felt embarrassed and ashamed. Within just 4 weeks, Patton had turned a new leaf and was peaceful even around strangers.
Or I could never forget Gizmo, the border collie who barked at everything that moved and pulled on her leash non-stop. When I first met her, her owners were on the brink of re-homing her, thinking she was just not fit for suburban live. After eliminating her bad habits with a few weeks of 1-on-1 training, she’s everyone’s best friend and is calm, confident and quiet.
"Melanie at Dog Wizard is the epitome of the BEST Dog Trainer ever!! Our dog completed the 2-week boarding program & like promised, Melanie has been there for him (& us) ever since." -Bridgett
"When our dog Sasha returned home from the two week training program, her behavior did a 180. Her reaction to people is completely different now. She shows excitement toward new people with a happy rear-end wiggle, rather than a bark and a snarl." -Brian
"I can't say enough about the trainers at DW. One other thing that really stuck with me was that these dogs REALLY respect this discipline." -Rebecca
"Melanie at the Dog Wizard is fantastic. She listened to what we wanted and tailored her training to our needs. My sweet puppy came home with the ability to listen to and follow commands." -Sally
Your dogs bad behaviors CAN be fixed... quickly, easily, and affordably.
