Our Services


Here at Wild Child, we pride ourselves for not being your typical dog training company. We are a home based and family owned company, meaning we develop a relationship with your dog first based off of trust, guidance, and understanding and then go into more of your obedience training. We find it imperative that we focus on your pet’s overall wellbeing and create a happy and calm attitude while performing different tasks, creating a happy dog that is not forced into obedience.

During your dog’s stay we teach them how to play and engage with you that creates motivation to be with you and comply despite distractions. As well, we will cover relaxation techniques to balance out the crazy energy and create a calm dog in and out of the home.

Your pup will be worked throughout the day and challenged in a positive manner that encourages growth. We create an environment that is full of compassion, consistency, and care. While your pup is away, you will see updates posted on our social media stories, be invited out to do private lessons with us during your dog’s stay, and you will have homework to complete before your friend comes home. This will ensure that you have a basic understanding of what and how dogs learn and why it’s important, because dog training isn’t just for the dog, it’s for us too.

Upon completion of your dog’s time with us we set up their take a home lesson and teach you how to maintain what they have learned during their time with us. From there we will help you and your best friend grow together through follow-up lessons and our monthly group class, ensuring your family’s success.

We stand behind our training and provide lifetime support for any of those who have gone through training with us.

Because let’s face it, life is better with a dog.

Results Based

Board & Train

For advance obedience, behavior modification, or fine tuning of previous training.

Results based training is a customizable training program based off of your goals and your dog’s needs. We essentially are taking the clock out of the mix and will train your pup at a pace they enjoy, understand, and are motivated to work with you.

Our training style focuses on showing your dog a positive outlet for their energy through play and engagement and teaching them how to relax in different environments. Creating a balance mindset that promotes freedom, clarity, and calmness. With this theory in practice, we are able to achieve great things as a team and have a well rounded dog with an equipped owner.

This program has no age limit as it is created with you and your dog in mind.


Stay and Play

Stay and play is open to all current or past clients.

We understand leaving your pup behind with someone is nerve racking and can be an overall stressful event, not to mention they won’t keep up any of the training you have accomplished so far.

That’s why we wanted to open our doors to those pups who have trained with us to come stay with us, so we can offer a familiar place, people, and consistency to maintain their training.

During your dog’s stay with us, we will have he or she engage in play groups or join us in individual play. If you choose, we can also take the time to freshen up your pup’s obedience and put them in our training schedule.

We only have limited slots for stay and play, so please book your boarding plans ahead of time to avoid any schedule conflict.

Stay and play daily rate is $30.00

Additional pets: $12 per day

All board and trains come with training equipment, access to our online video series for reference, 6 hours of private lessons, access to our monthly group class and social outings, lifetime support via phone and email, and access to future boarding with us.

Board and trains will be picked up and dropped off by the owner at our location. You will be responsible to provide food for your dog’s stay, any medicine they may need, and a copy of their vaccinations.
