Polite Pooch Dog Training

It’s hard to forge a deep friendship with your dog when he’s destroying your furniture, soiling your carpets, jumping uncontrollably, or nipping at your friends and kids. You may worry that you’ll have to put up with years of mishaps, noise, and angry neighbors – or even worse, give up your beloved pet altogether. That’s where Wild Things comes to the rescue. Our proven training methods put you back in charge so you can move beyond bad behavior and enjoy a better relationship with your dogs.

Our Polite Pooch Program is an 8 week dog training program designed to teach your dog to be a polite member of your household with commands that will help you eliminate common problem behaviors such as leash pulling, excessive barking, jumping, house soiling, and play biting.

Basic Obedience Training

The following commands are taught using both voice and hand signals:

  • Sit
  • Come
  • Leave It, Drop It
  • Down
  • Stand
  • Watch
  • Loose Leash Walking
  • Focused Heel

Behavior Modification

We will help you address your dog’s unwanted behaviors. This dog training is customizable to your specific needs but can include such behaviors as:

  • Play biting
  • Excessive barking/whining
  • Jumping
  • Counter surfing
  • Digging

Body Language Basics

Learn to understand what your dog is telling you.  Often times we ignore or misinterpret what our dogs are telling us, which can damage the relationship we have with them. We will give you a crash course in dog body language so that you can recognize signs of fear and anxiety.
