Our Dog Trainers
The Best Dog Trainer In Naperville
Megan Wallace is the owner of Midway Dog Academy and she serves as one of the academy’s lead dog trainers and teachers. Throughout her life, she has always had a very special love and bond for all animals. While growing up, she would frequently bring home stray animals to care and nurture for. She also would sneak treats to practice and train her own pets which included dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs, and hamsters.
Megan has always had a great love for animals and she knew that she wanted to work with them in some capacity, but wasn’t quite sure of how she would make it happen. It wasn’t until Megan got her own two dogs that she had discovered her calling– DOG TRAINING. Over the years, she has worked with some of the most difficult dog cases. She has a deep passion for helping some of the most misunderstood dogs and helping dog owners transform the life they live with their pets into the dog life they’ve always wanted.
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. Your passion will lead you right into your purpose. I know I am right where I belong-helping and changing the lives of dogs and their families.”
The love of her profession is demonstrated by her active involvement in the following organizations:
- Member, Canine Political Action Corps
- Member, American Dog Owner Association
- Professional Member (P-3360) International Association of Canine Professionals
- Member, ASPCA
"I had the most obnoxious boxer anyone (including myself) could own – Boss was a nightmare and totally true to his name as he was the boss of me and my house. He pulled unimaginably hard, ignored everything, was constantly on alert and ready to GO, barked constantly, and that’s only the tip of the ice berg. Needless to say, he need training more than most so I had no problem sending him to Megan’s. After a month with her, he was a whole new dog and one that I actually could enjoy. I know he’s much happier now as am I."
"Never in a million years would I believe that this was the same husky that I had dropped off for training. Not only is Molly focused and behaved now, but she also heels on a leash and off leash too! I absolutely would not have trusted her before her training – especially because she loved to chase squirrels and rabbits. We even saw one today and she could care less!!!"
"We can not recommended anyone more talented, more hard working, and more knowledgable than Megan. She helped take our misbehaved rescue mix to a well-mannered, polite pup in just 2 weeks. Yes we missed our girl, but we knew she needed the help and she deserved a good start with us since she had such a terrible beginning in life. Again, thank you Megan you truly helped us better understand what Cocoa needed from us. XoXo"
"I don't know if you remember us, but you our dog trainer with our dogs Boe and Howie about 5 years ago. We meant to keep in touch, but just got busy with life and having kids. Anyways, we are so grateful for the training you did with our boys because 5 years later and they are still as great as they were when we brought them home from you. They are even so wonderful and gentle with our young kids. Thank you again!"
