Board And Train Programs

Lets be real....we know life can get in the way of reaching your dog training goals. That's why we stand behind this amazing program to help YOU get peace of mind knowing your dog is learning, having fun, and will come back a well mannered family member. 

 

 Let's put this into perspective....dogs learn by what we teach them and what we let them get away with. As an owner, the most common mistake is reinforcing undesired behaviors through correcting at the wrong time and/or rewarding the behavior unintentionally. 

Often we hear, "My dog knows better" or "Why is he so stubborn?" In reality, what we perceive as stubborn or hardheaded is actually a behavior the dog learned was acceptable at some point in time.

A Board and Train under a seasoned professional is absolutely more effective and in depth than group class or a couple private lessons. A trainer is able to spend a great deal of time building confidence and superb foundation in a balanced and consistent environment!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I visit my dog while he/she is in training?   

Yes! We actually encourage it! We do require an appointment beforehand but, we want you, the owner, to be able to be apart of the training. 

What can I expect in a Board and Train Program? 

- You can expect a highly mannered family member, noticeably calmer and happier, less impulsive, and more respectful. A dog you feel comfortable with taking during outings or vacations and a dog thats an overall joy to be around. 

What method of training do you use?

- We do not like to be tied down to one method of training. We have a large toolbox and an even larger understanding that dogs are individuals and must be trained as so. What works for one dog may not work for the next. 

Are the results guaranteed?

- As much as we would love to be able to guarantee our work, we cannot guarantee future behaviors. Dogs are not robots and require consistency beyond their Board and Train. However, we offer 24/7 support and are always willing to answer your questions if they arise!

How long is a Board and Train?

- Board and Train duration depends on the behaviors exhibited and the amount of time the trainer deems necessary to work a dog in a comfortable time frame to avoid unnecessary stress on the dog.
