Board and Trains

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.

Relaxation

 

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.  It’s okay if you’re not sure.  Get in touch with us and tell us all about your dog!  And we’ll answer any questions you have.

Jumpstart Program

Your dog is an embarrassment!  They are wild and jump all over everyone when they come in.  They dart out the door as soon as they spot a chance to make a break for it.  They drag you down the street on walks.

Dogs are supposed to be fun.  Not stress! 

In our programs, we do the hardest part for you… the initial training.  So when we start teaching you, your dog is already on their way to reliably and happily listening.

We spend time really getting to know your dog and not rushing the first part, so the training sticks long term without having to rely on food or training tools.  

Think about the pride you will have when people stop you and are amazed by your dog’s manners.

This program is great for puppies!

Dependable Dog Program

You got a dog because you want to enjoy life with them.  Go places, have people over… and know they’ll still pay attention.

With this program, not only will your dog have amazing house manners – not pulling you on walks, not jumping on your guests, and settling down calmly when you need them to – you’ll also be heard and listened to with there are more distractions around!

Your dog could be so much more a part of your family fun if only they listened better, right?  You’d love to really enjoy owning a dog… and this program will give you the freedom to take them with you out and about.  

You can take your dog out to outdoor restaurants and have people compliment you on how well behaved they are.  Instead of being frustrated that they are a bit on the unpredictable side.  

We’ll also teach them to listen to you when you ask them to sit, lay down, come, and go stay on their bed.

This program is great for on leash obedience and manners in and out of the home.

Dream Dog Program

Do you want a well-trained dog but don’t have the time to devote to training your dog to listen reliably?  Are you a busy family but want a well-behaved dog to take anywhere your schedule takes you?  Or maybe your dog has some more severe behaviors like being fearful or overreacting to other dogs or people?

With this program, not only will we make sure your dog has excellent house manners and listens to you even around distractions, we’ll also make sure your dog listens when they don’t have a leash on…

Which is awesome because most family dogs spend 99% of the time off-leash at home.  You’ll be able to get them to listen without having to physically be near them. 

The longer stay for your dog gives your dog the strongest foundation because we’ll have more time with them so we know them inside out (and we’ll know how your unique dog learns so the training is easier and fun), which means your dog is farther along when they come home.  

Then we’ll teach you everything you need to know and practice with you for as many lessons as you’d like since this program also includes unlimited private lessons AND lifetime support.

This program is great for off leash freedom and behavior modification.
