Justin's admiration of and fascination with all things canine has led him to work with dogs nearly his entire life. He worked his way through Georgia State University by managing a local dog daycare and training facility. Through 4 years of managing the facility, Justin's interest in caring for dogs grew as he observed them interact in a large group setting daily. There are no better teachers of dog communication than the dogs themselves. As Justin's knowledge and ability to communicate with dogs grew, family and friends (and friends of friends) began asking for advice about their dogs. After Justin graduated, he continued helping people with their dogs as a hobby while he worked his 9 to 5 job in downtown Atlanta. Something was missing, though, and Justin made a very tough decision to quit his stable (yet unfulfilling) job and pursue a full-time career in dog training. Soon afterwards, he attended the Dog Wizard Academy, where his knowledge and experience with dogs grew exponentially. The state-of-the-art training methods he has learned have led him to training and helping hundreds of dogs and their families. Justin's passion for improving the relationships between dogs and their owners drives and rewards him every day. Justin's specialties include separation anxiety, aggression, nervous/shy dogs and high-energy breeds. Justin is accompanied 24/7 by a highly motivated shepherd/terrier mix, Randy, that he adopted from the Atlanta Humane Society. Paul joined Justin and his team in order to assist him with dog training, as the Atlanta Dog Wizard continues to grow helping more dogs and their owners year after year.

Our highly skilled trainer, Justin Hall truly has the patience of a saint.
Before he took our beloved 85 lb. Frankie to his 2 week training camp (which I lovingly refer to as Hogwarts), Frankie was one of 'those' dogs. Wonderful and super loving, but so much so that he wanted to jump all over our guests and lick them to death. Frankie is a Weimeraner-Pit Bull mix with the energy of a Weimeraner and the strength of a Pit Bull. The kind of dog that would take you on a walk, instead of the other way around, simply because he could. The kind of dog who would jump the fence or run out an open door and make you chase him for hours before you could get him back inside. Thankfully, those days are over. With positive reinforcement, dog psychology, and gentle training aids, Justin was able to make Frankie feel important and find his inner zen. The training and support that Atlanta Dog Wizard gives is unparalleled - and the best part is, we have Justin's 'guaranteed' guidance for life! THE REAL DEAL. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first (in the words of Tupac (R.I.P) "There are alot of fake playas out there hustlin'."), but Justin did a fantastic job with my pug, Martin. No issues with us leaving any more, no tearing up the furniture, etc. It's almost as if Martin understands what we are saying! Justin has also been available if we need to give him a quick call and ask a question. I don't know how he does it but he does - it's obvious that this guy knows what he is doing, and more importantly LIKES IT. AMAZING! Not only will you be appreciative of the Atlanta Dog Wizard, so will your pup! It was great working with Justin; he is professional, experienced, and patient working with our extremely energized and hyper puppy. He meets the dog where they are and is able to provide clear boundaries to have a more successful and loving home. We now have a dog that will listen and we now know how to challenge her so she can continue to develop into the perfect dog for us. Thx to Justin for all his expertise & patience with my "perfect storm of a dog", Bosco. Justin makes himself entirely available and uses every tool he has at his disposal to help my dog... he truly cares and wants to make my dog a part of his life. Bosco has some ongoing isssues and I know Justin will continue to be there in the future! Justin did a great job with Dixie. She use to be so shy of everything. Now she's a brave little girl and is responding to commands better than ever. I'd recommend his services to anyone. My dog, Sneldor, was a jerk. He would chew up my shoes, make "boom-booms" in the house, and bark at every noise imaginable. Justin, the Dog Wizard, quickly whipped him into shape! Sneldor is no longer a jerk! The added bonus I didn't expect was how much I learned from Justin about how to deal with Sneldor's behavior. The Dog Wizard really worked his magic! Justin did such a wonderful job with Miss Marbles that I thought he might have actually replaced her with an identical Puggle! LOL! She's soooo much better behaved now. No more howling when I leave her alone and I haven't come home to any of MM's "presents" in a whole month! THANK YOU JUSTIN!!! My sister and brother-in-law should be contacting you soon to help out with their dogs! Luigi is like a new dog since his visits with the Wizard. People who have been around my dog Luigi can't help but notice how well he is behaving these days. Justin not only helps train your pooch, but he also trains you on the right way to change your dog's behaviors.
The dark night of Justin HallPrentiss Riddle: Time: The dark night of Justin HallPrentiss Riddle: TimeThe dark night of Justin Hall This is perhaps the oddest and most moving personal ad ever. (Warning: video and strong language.) Damn. Having from time to time read Justin's brilliant blog (a genre he could well have founded although I don't think he uses that word) I've always wondered how the people in his life put up with his exhibitionism.Now I guess we know that they don't. Justin is something of an extreme case, but the kind of extreme case that's been giving western civilization much of its creative juice for a couple of centuries now.If this were 1905 or 1805 he'd have been a flamboyant poet or actor with a dangerous reputation, or in 1945 a Kerouac.In 2005 he's at risk of being lumped in with the "camgirls" (remember camgirls?), but I think he's aware of his role in a William Gibson novel of his own devising in a way that the camgirls were not. As I was watching the thought occurred to me that maybe he just needs to find his Yoko Ono (or to remove the asymmetry, perhaps be the Yoko Ono to someone else's John Lennon).But I guess he's already tried that. Has anyone bothered to note that Justin is enrolled in film studies?I've been reading his blog for a long time now and have spent some RL time with him.He thrives on attention for certain and I believe some of, if not quite a lot of, what he's saying to be genuinely true I didn't, for a moment, believe he was having a genuine experience in front of that camera.He's not an actor, that much is clear.Thus, when he delivers his material the emotionalism behind what he's doing feels awfully forced.If this is really an art project I think it's a bad one.I actually wondered if this wasn't the best excuse he could cook up to get offline long enough to have a bit of a private life?Wouldn't put it past him - he's a smart guy (albeit a bad actor).I hope he's enjoying his new life in LA and all the pretty, trendy girls he's sure to be meeting in film school - I also don't put that past him.To be sure, Justin likes having a good time.A bit of a geek playboy if you will.That's the only thing that is preventing him from having a serious relationship and it's a self-enforced ban on intimacy if you ask me.If he was in a rock band we wouldn't expect him to settle down until he was in his 40s - if that.I think Justin is a little like a rock and roller who wants to live life out loud and be adored by his *fans* ...Mel [chandrasutra cxe gmail punkto com] , 2005.02.21I don't think you're the only person to notice the film studies connection.A friend of mine who happens to teach film studies himself showed the clip to his students and described Justin as "performing, but performing in earnest".I haven't figured out all the levels there but it looks to me like a mixture of real pain, a plausible life crisis, and a pose.It wouldn't surprise me if he turned it in for a class, but I guess it would surprise me if it were just a project.At this point Justin's whole life is an art project, which seems to be at the heart of his problem.
