Meet Dog Trainer: Chris Pizzi

Chris has always had a love for animals since a very early age. Growing up, he would sneak off into his Uncle’s kennel to cuddle up with his hunting dogs. When Chris was only 8, he even trained his family’s dog, Max, advanced tricks like shutting off the lights. After high school, Chris attended Kutztown University and DuCret School of Art. He then adopted his own dog, Johnny Cash, who proved to be quite the handful, which made him realize his passion for training.

He worked with pets of family and friends before going on to graduate Animal Behavior College as a certified dog trainer. There, he maintained near perfect scores and learned a variety of different skills and methods of training with help from his Mentor. He went on to study Rehabilitation of Shelter Dogs, Pet Massage, Canine Diet and Nutrition and Managing Dog-Dog Play.

Chris is always continuing his education and looking to advance his expertise by studying many world-renowned animal trainers and their new styles and training methods as well as obtaining more certifications in the field of animal training. He continues to work with his dog, Cash, every day in advanced obedience, trick training and off leash training. Chris also mentor’s future dog obedience trainers through the same program he completed. He is very excited to continue to adopt, rehabilitate and train many more pets of his own in the future. Chris is extremely excited to help our clients and companions achieve a happy, successful and balanced lifelong bond.

My dog Miles absolutely LOVES wagsworth! He attends day camp 4 days a week and comes home ready for a good nights sleep. We have seen so many improvements in his behavior since he started at wagsworth as a young puppy. The staff takes such amazing care of miles and makes sure he and all the other dogs are safe! Cannot recommend wagsworth enough.

Wagsworth has cared for my dog for a year in dog day camp. The staff I have interacted with are all professional and have a strong connection with the care pets receive. Most importantly my dog runs down the hall at drop off never looking back! He absolutely LOVES going to Wagsworth!

My dog absolutely loves going to Wagsworth ! He knows when we are close and gets so excited. It truly is a dog heaven from the day camp fun to the staff who are the most friendly, caring and dedicated team. You can tell they all love the dogs so much and enjoy what they do. We have also boarded our dog here and he always comes home happy and tired from so much play time. Thank you for all you do it is greatly appreciated! I would highly recommend to anyone with dogs that need some extra play time and attention during the day.

Like most dog owners, I am obsessed with my dog. I am very critical of boarding/Daycare and have always been anxious about leaving him places. Wagsworth is the only place I am comfortable bringing him too. The obvious things: 1. safe, well kept facility 2. very nice, accommodating staff Though the reason I only trust this place: 1. The first time I brought my dog there, my dog had a skin tag/some small bump that was a little cut (my dog was chewing it and it was having issues healing). During his visit he chewed at it and cut it open. The staff cleaned it and made sure it healed ok. When I picked up my dog it looked better than when I dropped him off. 2. My dog stayed over a week period where the weather fluctuated a lot. The staff provided my dog with a sweater on days it was chilly (no cost) Needless to stay, this place can be pretty pricey, but I’ve had issues with other facilities (my dog getting attacked, cleaving with infections, etc). This place takes great care of my dog and it is worth every penny. They also have a lot of a la cart services to make sure your animal has a great time.

Our cat, Sketchy, has been here several times and when we pick him up, we can tell he was well cared for.
