Our Training 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 your pup(s) will be integrated into our lives as one of ours. They will be taught house manners in our home and travel with us on field trips or to the occasional vacation spot. 

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 enviorment 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 will bring them back to you 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, 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. 

For more information about our training services below please fill out our get in touch form below and tell us about your pup and what your goals you would like to achieve through training.

Day Training

Our day training service is for our current or prior clients only.

Day training is a good way to get your pup out of the house and freshen up those obedience and manners in a new location. We know life can get busy and sometimes we let our dog’s training slide. This service is designed to maintain what your dog has learned from previous training while you carry on your adult duties.

Your pup will be included in our board and train trainee’s schedule, meaning they will particpate in field trip outings and group play. Working on their manners when greeting others and their off leash obedience.  Ending the day with relaxation time. Thus allowing us to bring you back a tired and happy dog at the end of the day

This service includes pick up between 8 am and 9:30 and drop off between 3:30 pm and 5 pm.

Please email or text us for available dates.

Day Training is $60.00 a day

Off Leash Board & Train

4 weeks

Our on and off leash board and train program focuses on taking your unruly friend and giving them the manners they need to be well behaved in the home and out in public.

Our board and train program will teach your pup advance obedience commands like: sit, down, come, heel, place, and stay on and off the leash. All the while working on a calm mindset and getting rid of those bad manners, such as jumping. 

We start out teaching all dogs through positive reinforcement until they demonstrate understating of what we’re asking of them. We then build off of that foundation and proof their commands out in dog friendly establishments, so your dog learns to listen in all environments. 

During this program your dog will learn relaxation techniques and how to play properly. Unlocking their true potential and guiding them vs suppressing their beavior. Creating motivation to work with you and set the foundation for a healthy relationship.

After training we will bring your dog back to you and teach you how to maintain what he or she has learned and how to build your relationship with your best friend. We will then help you maintain training through private lessons and group class, as we offer lifetime support for you and your pup as you explore the world together. 

This program includes:

– On and off leash obedience

– Manners in and out of your home, i.e. no jumping, lunging, etc.

– 2 Follow-up Lessons

– A cheat sheet for reference

– Treat pouch, a biothane leash, and an ecollar and/or prong collar

– Access to our monthly Group Class

– Access to our private Facebook group that has our instructional videos


Behavior Modification 

6 weeks+

Our Behavioral Modification program is for those who are dealing with human and/or dog aggression, reactivity, fearfulness, and anxiety.

Behavioral issues can stem from poor genetics, a bad experience, lack of socialization, or a mixture of all the above. We here at Wild Child will try to get to the root of the problem so we are able to help your dog grow confidence, stability, and associate that trigger in a positive light and teach your dog how to work through daily life problems with the tools they are taught.

Our Behavioral Modification program focuses solely on your dog’s behavior. Obedience commands will come secondary to your dog’s conduct, as we have found too many trainers put an emphasis on controlling the dog versus teaching the dog a new way of thinking. Behavioral training takes time, teamwork, effort, and trust not only from the dog but from the owners as well. Training is only a small portion to your dog’s recovery and requires dedication from you to ensure success. This program does provide lifetime support to you and your pet to ensure a smooth transition and to continue the training well after he or she has settled back into the home.

This program includes:

– A detailed plan to success for your dog rehabilitation

– Our trainer working specifically one on one with you and your pup. Meaning no other board and trains will be with your dog while we help them through their behavior

– On and off leash obedience as seen fit

– Unlimited follow-up lessons

– Treat pouch, biothane leash, and an ecollar and/or prong collar

– Access to our monthly group class

– Access to our private Facebook group that has our instructional videos

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 $25.00
