Today's existence for many dog owners is hectic, to say the least. Between meeting the demands of careers, shuttling kids to and from school, and finding those rare moments to relax, training the dog often takes a distant third or fourth place over other priorities. At Taming the Wild, our board and train programs relieve you of this burden by training your dog for you.
All of our programs are performed by our professional trainers who are taught and mentored by award-winning trainer Bryan Bailey. Bryan and his staff will provide the input necessary for your dog to learn the behaviors you need and want to suit your busy lifestyle.
To obtain the highest level of reliability under varying distractions, your dog’s training will also be augmented with field trips to parks, shopping centers, and restaurants. Once we have completed your dog’s training, we will perform the very important task of teaching you how to maintain the behaviors your dog learned.
We offer various levels of board and train programs based on your dog's age, previous training, and your needs. Learn more about our board and train offerings below.
7-day, on-leash board and train program for dogs aged 16 weeks and older that focuses on two essential behaviors: heel and stay. Included in the program are training, boarding, and a private turnover lesson at the end of the program.
Over the years, we've asked dog owners, "If you could select only two, on-leash behaviors for your dog's training, what would they be?" The overwhelming majority chose training that would teach their dog to walk or jog on one side of their body and never pull them and to remain in a chosen location until they were released. For those owners, heel, and stay were the essential behaviors that were needed to increase the quality of life and safety for them and their dogs. Hence, how this program became known as, "The Essentials." At the completion of this program, you will have a dog that is a pleasure to walk and one that you and your guests can admire - at a distance!
Cost - $900
A 10-day, off-leash board and train program for dogs aged 20 weeks and older that teaches one, critical behavior: "come when called." Included in the program are training, boarding, the remote training collar that is required to train and maintain the behavior, and a private turnover lesson at our facility.
There is no trained behavior more valuable in dog ownership than come when called. A dog that will reliably come when called not only sets you and your dog free to enjoy the likes of dog parks, hikes in the wild, and playing ball, but it also provides for your dog's safety and your peace of mind. Kira and I can't imagine owning a dog that will not come when it is given the command to do so. After all, the last time we looked, a dog was supposed to lower our blood pressure, not raise it! When we take our dog's hiking, there is nothing that brings us more joy than to watch them race through the forest like their wolf ancestors with absolute delight on their faces! Invest in "come when called" and you'll be investing in your and your dog's future happiness and longevity.

Took our 6-year-old dachshund mix to Taming the Wild after a few instances of him biting me and always being super stubborn. We did the Phase 1 training in which you leave your dog at their facility for two weeks. When we picked him up, they provided an hour and a half training session with my husband and me to show us everything he learned and how to continue implementing. We were amazed at his new behavior!! It’s been almost two weeks since we picked him up and still all good! We practice with him a little bit each day to keep it up and make sure he doesn’t fall back into old habits. We are very satisfied with the results of the program, and my only regret is not taking him sooner!
