Board & Train
Our Board & Train program covers every aspect and level of training. From puppy work to standard obedience, to the most severe behavior issues. We have developed a unique approach and system; one that not only transforms these extremely difficult dogs but which also transfers seamlessly to the owners. And if we are this successful with the tough ones, imagine the results with puppies and more straightforward cases.
We specialize in low-level, communication style e-collar conditioning. Our state-of-the-art training approach enables owners to have a fully off-leash reliable dog indoors and outdoors, as well as relaxed, stress-free walks. No more bribing, begging, or losing your cool; just dependable training, a great relationship, and a dog you can enjoy anywhere. We pride ourselves on boutique-style, specialized, one-on-one training. By keeping the volume of dogs we work with limited, it enables us to devote more quality time and attention to each dog. This allows us to develop a unique game plan for each dog, and their particular needs, which of course equals the very best results possible.
Your dog will learn loose leash walking, leash manners, house manners, crate manners, potty on command, socialization, recall, car manners, dog friendly establishment manners, group class manners, group play manners, individual play manners, treadmill exercise, confidence building, emotional regulation, meditation, off-leash heeling, duration place work, impulse control, emotional and mental maturity, some fancy footwork if time allows, and more.
We offer a limited number of Board & Train programs per year due to their intensive nature. Our board and train is a minimum of 5 weeks.
Many well-tempered pet dogs reach their training goals with this program. Clients who have more difficult dogs, or dogs who present additional behavioral challenges upon arrival, may require another 3-6 lessons and/or additional weeks of Board & Train. We rarely come across cases that cannot achieve our total transformation within that time frame/program. If you desire more advanced training, such as therapy or service work, you will likely need to continue with additional lessons and/or board and trains throughout the life of your dog.
Please keep in mind that we do offer no-interest payment plans through Affirm if you are unable to pay the cost of your training program in full upon booking.
