Training for Puppies - Memphis, TN | Taming the Wild




From birth until approximately sixteen weeks of age, puppies are more “wolf-like” than they will ever be. 

During this impressionable period, their behaviors are driven more by instinct passed along by their wolf heritage than by human influence. They have no concept of the requirement to not relieve themselves in your home or to not chew on your furniture or possessions. 

Because they are social creatures, provoking pack mates is vital for their early hierarchal development, thus giving cause to jumping, nipping and chasing you and your children.

Lastly, they do not possess the ability to speak our language and are unable to understand human sentences and intentions, making communication between you and your young dog confusing and counterproductive. 

At Taming the Wild, we offer two different types of puppy training courses. Click on the options below to learn more about our technique, pricing, and offerings:

Our Approach To Training Your Puppy


Knowing how to blend training that creates acceptable behaviors in the human realm with the natural instinctive responses of your young dog is crucial for the formal training to come.

At Taming the Wild, through either our Imprinting Program or our Puppy Preparatory School, we help guide you through the critical first few months of your young dog’s life, teaching you the necessary knowledge and skills to help your puppy relationship start on the right path.


Schedule Puppy Training




We recommend every owner of a new puppy sign their little ones up for puppy training, In addition to establishing dominance and boundaries while building trust, affection, and communication skills, puppy training can curb aggression and establish rules your puppy will learn to follow, such as not using the bathroom in the house.

If your puppy is exhibiting any of the following behaviors, you should consider enrolling your dog in one of our puppy training courses, imprint courses, or obedience training courses in Memphis.


  • Unwillingness to use the bathroom outside
  • Unwillingness to follow simple commands
  • Aggression directed at you or other people
  • Aggression directed at other animals
  • Fear or aggression during severe weather or thunderstorms
  • Food aggression
  • Fear aggression
  • Fearful behavior
  • Problems at boarding facilities
  • Problems at dog daycare


Taming the Wild also recommends owners of Pit Bull puppies, Rottweiler puppies. Doberman Pinscher puppies, Dalmatian puppies, German Shepherd puppies, Siberian Husky puppies, and other breeds that may be prone to aggression enroll their dogs in puppy obedience training in order to socialize their pets while they’re young.

This decreases the chances of your puppy becoming aggressive with you, other dogs and animals, and other people, and establishes connections and fosters communication skills. Our trainers provide a variety of imprinting and obedience training courses for dogs in Memphis and the surrounding areas.


Need Help HouseBreaking your puppy?

Housebreaking is the bane of puppyhood for most dog owners. It is an incredibly frustrating process that has been made even more so by misguided training recommendations doled out by friends, family, the internet, and a myriad of dog professionals.

The information provided is often incorrect or misleading, especially regarding the amount of time and effort that will be required to train your dog to go potty outdoors and not indoors reliably.

However, successful housebreaking doesn’t have to be so scary or painful. It just requires patience, consistency, a small bit of knowledge about your dog’s natural behavior, and a willingness to follow ten important steps.
