Welcome to Wizard of Dogz!!
since September 2002.
Mission Statement: It is the mission of Wizard of Dogz to nurture and improve the relationships
between humans and their pets through education and good, fun times!!
HI!! I'm Karen L. Meldrum, Owner of Wizard
of Dogz. I've spent the majority of my life in and around the Columbus area, and have taken care of just about every pet one
could think about -- mice, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, small birds, large birds, cats, dogs, and horses.
On occasion I've even been known to slop some pigs and take care of a herd of cattle. Currently at home are Pembroke Welsh
Corgis, Doyle and Watson, and big rescue mutts, Gryffindor and Luna; and five cats named Grendl, Bobcat, Mischief, Weasley
and Squeaks. Though they might not want to admit it, my pets do need their nap time every day, and that gives me
time to help you and your pets!!
Why me?? I spent 14 years in the retail and/or service profession, with 12 years
in management. In 1995 I became an employee of a major pet supply store and since then have been committed to educating anyone
who would listen about their pets. I quickly studied and completed their seven core courses of animal education, and then
became certified as an obedience instructor in puppy preschool, potty training, basic obedience, and intermediate or AKC Canine
Good Citizen. I also received a two year degree in Animal Science. As a manager I was in charge of obedience, grooming, pet
adoption and rescue organizations, and the area known as fish, bird, reptile and small animal world. In recent years I've
done extensive research in dog training, animal care, animal behavior, and animal nutrition.
Now I'd like to use
my resources and experiences to help you. Whether you're out for a long day, a long weekend or a much needed vacation, or
if you just need help getting to know your friend a little better, my services can be beneficial to you and your family!!
Take a look at what I have to offer, and I'll be looking forward to hearing from you!!
