Unleash the Wild
We do things very differently at Wild Child. We don’t rush your dog’s progress. We limit how many families we help at any given time so your dog gets lots of attention, play, exercise, and training time. In fact, play and learning to relax are a big part of what we teach dogs to do!
Building Trust First
We maximize your dog’s learning experience by building a fun and loving environment that promotes trust and motivation to work.
We utilize play techniques to encourage your dog to interact with us and show us what they like, so we can guide them through different stressors.
Teaching and Guidance
Once your dog has showed us what he or she likes, we start using their style of play to teach and guide your dog through obedience commands and bad behaviors they have demonstrated.
With trust being established and a repertoire of a fun learning environment, dogs quickly put together the pieces to create lasting results.
With improvements of behavior and the proper outlet put in place, we then start helping your dog emotionally relax without the use of obedience commands.
We utilize different calming techniques to encourage your dog to hang out and make right decisions when not in a structured environment.
Teaching You, The Owner
During your dog’s stay we encourage owners to come out once a week for private one on one classes, so you too can learn with your dog.
Dog training is a team effort and we want you included on the education process. We will cover with you the ins and outs of canine body language and how to set your dog up for success. Creating a lasting and fulfilling relationship with your canine friend.
How to decide which program is best for your family:
The biggest difference between the programs is how much time your dog spends 1-on-1 with us, and how much long term support you get from us to help you maintain your dog’s training.
The longer your dog is with us, the farther along they are when they come home and we start training you. And the more long term support you have from us, the more peace of mind you have in case anything ever comes up in the future or you need some polishing up.
Choose the program based on what you prefer or set up a consult with us, so we can speak in detail. Giving you training advice and tips to start right away at home.
