The Dog Wizard Expands To Chattanooga

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Mobile dog training franchise, The Dog Wizard, has expanded to Chattanooga. 

Local Professional Dog Trainer John Hayes founded the dog training franchise in Chattanooga that launched in February.  He’s been working in Chattanooga as a dog trainer for the past few years.  Always perfecting his craft, Mr. Hayes said he wanted to offer Chattanooga an array of modern, world renowned training styles and techniques that are meant to suit the individual’s needs. 

Aside from his obedience training professionally, Mr. Hayes has been involved with the rescue community. Working with East Ridge Animal Services, he helped evaluate rescue dogs and train them for service dog work.  Last year, he was recognized at the Humane Educational Society’s Alumni Association for making a positive impact on rescue dog’s lives. 

The Dog Wizard is a Charlotte-based dog training company that seeks to make humans’ and dogs’ lives better through its proven and guaranteed dog obedience programs.

The Dog Wizard Chattanooga will offer a variety of services, including In-Home Classes, Group Classes, Private Classes, Puppy Socialization Classes, Board and Train Options, and advanced training.  Each graduate is granted access to lifetime support classes at no additional cost, and lesson programs include online training modules for support between classes.  

“Chattanooga is a dog-lovers community," said Mr. Hayes. "We want to promote that community feel by providing access to like-minded people who want to learn and master their dog handling skills together.  Education with people and their pets is the best chance we have to help diminish shelter overpopulation, and that starts at the earliest puppy stages possible.

“My philosophy is that dogs don’t make mistakes; they are only doing what they think is right.  It’s our job to teach them how to interact in the human world.”  

Find Mr. Hayes’ credentials on their website, www.TheDogWizard.com/Chattanooga, or call for a free evaluation 704-WZRD (9973).
