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 two Pembroke Welsh
Corgis, Watson and Moriarty, and rescue mutt, Gryffindor; and four cats named Squeaks, Weasley, Potter and Granger. 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!!
