About Wild Child

Wild Child is a small business, founded in early 2014 by Sydney Marshall. Originally starting out as a pet sitting, dog walking, and foster home for rescued animals, the owner wanted to provide positive experiences for the pups in her care. After attending multiple canine behavior courses and shadowing some of the best trainers in the world, pet sitting turned into dog training with a a focus on brining peace and joy to the human and canine relationship.

Located on 10 acres central of Jacksonville, New Bern, and Morehead City. Wild Child has provided big company results while keeping the family feel to Eastern North Carolina.

During your dog’s stay they will have access to different parts of the property and our farm during their multiple training sessions. They will get free time to roam across the land or take a dip in the pond during supervised outings. When not out on the property, the dogs will have their assigned indoor and outdoor dog run to provide safety, cleanliness, structure, and comfortability to each pet while they’re in our care. The owner and her family reside on the property, so during your pup’s stay we can practice manners in the house as well as provide 24/7 care. Outfitted with cameras and having an compassionate team we are not only able to provide protection, we are able to provide a family touch to your dog’s training.

We are PetCPR certified, AKC CGC Approved Evaluators, and members of International Association of Canine Professionals and United Shutzhund Clubs of America.
