Our Living Wild Program is for the ultimate pack seeker. A unique, all natural program that takes your dog back to his roots….of living wild in a pack. Pack members live, play and sleep 24/7 in their own “territory” just like their wolf ancestors. Their territory has lots of features to keep the pack occupied 24/7. These include jungle gyms, swimming pools, sandboxes, tunnels, trees, toys, etc. There are also two specially designed and equipped “pack dens” with soft bedding and natural cedar shavings to provide a warm, safe, comfortable and relaxing home safe from the weather and a place to live and sleep together as a pack. Packs are small (average 4-6 dogs, but no more than 8) to ensure fun, relaxing adventures without the stress of crowded conditions or undue competition associated with larger packs. If your dog wants to live on the wild side again, this is the perfect program!

One of the favorite experiences of our hiking adventures is the free-flowing, natural, spring-fed streams located on the back part of our oasis. And for those regular explorers, no worries about seeing the same thing because you can look forward to new and interesting hiking adventures as we have access to another 200 acres of naturally beautiful wooded hiking areas filled with fun and frolic.
Our Splish-Splash Adventures continue our natural balance concept by using all natural, organic, dog-friendly shampoo and conditioning treatments. We also allow your dog to dry “naturally” which is less stressful and damaging to dog’s hair and skin than blow drying.
Ready-Set-Chase! Lure Course Adventures are a favorite among our adventure seekers. It is a fast action, go-getter adventure that taps into your dog's natural instinct to "chase a rabbit." It is an exhilarating adventure for your dog to test his skills as a hunter and just as exciting for you to watch your dog be the hunter he always has been. And we of course use only "pretend rabbits" because we care about all furry animals.

Naturally Balanced Training
Our programs utilize "Learn and Leadership"TM concepts than structured and obedient training. We understand that each dog is different and has their own unique needs; therefore, we "teach" each dog based upon their specific personality, temperament, energy level, likes, etc. And this approach is done with Naturally BalancedTM concepts and Learn and LeadershipTM qualities that are based upon the principles of respect, patience, calmness, positive energy, leadership and pack behavior.
