Imprinting Puppy Training - Memphis, TN | Taming the Wild
Formerly ProTrain

A board and train option

Dogs under the age of sixteen weeks are more “wolf-like” than they will ever be. At this age, their actions are more motivated by instincts inherited from their wild ancestor, the gray wolf, than by our influence. It is a time when most pups are separated from their birth packs and have to make the crucial adjustment to living with humans.


Gathering vital information such as food acquisition, shelter, and social awareness among its human pack factor into this adjustment along with learning behavioral boundaries and interspecific communication. Any knowledge gained during this adjustment period is never forgotten as nature prepares your pup for life as a vibrant and contributing member of its pack.

At Taming the Wild, our Imprinting Program focuses on the “social awareness” aspect of your young dog’s development.

Our professional trainers will teach your pup how to interpret our human language and visual cues and associate them with desired behaviors. Because subordinate wolves follow the cues of their leaders, your pup will be imprinted, at an early age, with the need to follow yours. Doing so will establish your leadership with your puppy from the onset and allow it to realize its status among your family.


Imprinting at Taming the Wild is a 5 day board and train program.  Included in the program is training, boarding, playtime, a private turnover lesson at the end of the program, a long line and a treat pouch.

Cost - $500
