MEET OUr TEAM
Melanie has worked with dogs for as long as she can remember. She started professionally 15 years ago in the doggie daycare world and learned a lot about dog behavior through play groups and socialization sessions. Knowing dogs were her passion, she sought to be able to make a bigger impact on dogs’ lives which brought her into the training world. As excited as a kid in a candy store, Melanie jumped in with two feet and joined the Dog Wizard family seeking to learn everything she could about dog training. Fast forward 5 years and a lot of hard work, and she is now the proud owner of the Gastonia Dog Wizard. Living near by in Kings Mountain, she is thrilled to get to make an impact in her own community. If you live in the area, you will more than likely see Melanie out at the parks working with her clients and dogs!
Amy is a recent transplant to Charlotte, and The Dog Wizard is very lucky to have her on the team! Amy has a very important role with being the first point of contact for Dog Wizard clients. She helps manage the day-to-day needs, phone calls, and appointments which she does so well. The best part about her job is not only getting to talk with clients about their dogs but also having her rescue mutt, Winston, hang out with her all day! We would be lost without her.
Noelle has been part of The Dog Wizard family since she started her path as a trainer in Charleston SC in 2012. After 5 years in the Lowcountry and 4 years of helping dogs and their owners to have a better life, it was time to get back to her roots in New Jersey. It was a tough decision not to be hands on with owners and their dogs but now as the office manager she gets to continue to be part of the wizard family and clients lives! Her first hand knowledge of the training side adds a huge benefit to the day to day operations in the office. It helps us be more efficient, creating processes to help better our clients experience as she understands our clients needs that much more! Whether you are a first time caller or a current client, Noelle’s passion for canine’s and their people exudes from the moment you start talking to her. She has an unending love for her three dogs Lexi, Trinity and her newest addition Huckleberry as well as the man that stands by her side, Evan. Noelle is focusing on field trial obedience with Huckleberry and has the pleasure of frequenting the river with the dogs and exploring the beautiful trails and landscape of The Garden State.
