Meet Maddisen Phelan, KPA-CTP, CTDI
Maddisen entered the dog world as a result of her growing interest in behaviour and canine enrichment. She devotes her time to educating individuals and families on science-based, force free, positive methods, and to raising well-rounded pets that enjoy learning and that are fun to live with.
"A very positive experience"
"Wizard of Paws has been a very positive experience for both our puppy "Marley" and our family. We got her when she was 5 weeks old and she is now 6 months old and doing amazing. When we got her she had many issues including socialization problems and food aggressions. Maddisen has been working with her since we got her and is doing a wonderful job. We will continue with Wizard of Paws in the future as there is always more for her to learn and Marley loves to be with Maddisen!"

"It's a wonderfully positive atmosphere"
Can I give 6 stars? Wizard of paws is such a well rounded facility. The training I have done with my dog has been amazing, he is learning so quickly under Maddisen’s guidance. It’s a wonderfully positive atmosphere with caring staff. If you have been thinking about doing some training with your dog, you’ll get so much more out of it than you can imagine. They also offer grooming services and my dog comes home happy and looking great.

"Not sure where we would be without her!"
"We got our new puppy, Henry, when he was almost 16 weeks old and knew we needed to start with training quickly, but didn't know where to start. We were referred to Wizard of Paws by a friend and we immediately started 1 hour personal training sessions with Maddisen in our home on a weekly basis.
She guided us through the training each week with great patience, provided us with homework to work on each week and got us to graduation within 6 weeks for his Puppy Level 1 program. We continue to work with her monthly to work in new areas of focus. I feel confident when I am out with Henry that he will not bite other dogs or children, and he will come when he is called. He gladly engages in training with Maddisen anytime she is here, and is so excited to see her. Not sure where we would be without her! Thank you Maddisen and Wizard of Paws for all of your assistance and look forward to working together with you moving forward with our Henry."
