Board and Train

If you can't take your dog with you on vacation, don't put him in a kennel - send him to camp! In our reward-based transformational training program, he'll have fun while he learns basic obedience and good manners.

In our transformational packages your dog will live in our home, 24/7 and will learn basic obedience and good manners. We will provide direct supervision. Your family pet will be observed, trained and interacted with in a real home environment, so all of the issues your dog encounters in daily life will be addressed. Board and Train is our most popular program. All Board and Train programs include a meet and greet where we assess your dog and includes a 1-hour "train the owner" session when you pick up your best friend.

With our 21-day program your dog should be able to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test if you so choose to have him evaluated.

Training a dog on your own without any experience can be difficult and time consuming.

Instead, let our professional dog trainer take on the challenge with our obedience one-on-one training sessions.

We have the skills and knowledge necessary to help teach your dog basic commands, good manners and more through positive training techniques.

And we can assist you as a dog owner to develop a healthy, stronger bond with your dog.

Prior to enrollment in this program, we will assess your dog and develop a plan to address behavioral issues that will allow us to achieve your training goals together. In addition to any specific behavior modification goals, your dog will learn to stop the following habits:

  • explosive reactions
  • resource guarding
  • fearful reactions and cowering
  • attacking people and dogs
  • destructive and self-harming behaviors when left alone
  • pulling on walks
  • separation anxiety
  • counter surfing
  • leash biting
  • excessive barking and growling
  • jumping on people
  • running out the door

In our experience, dogs might know how to execute commands really well, but still exhibit poor behavior. For this reason, we focus more on your dog’s state of mind rather than just teaching him to follow commands. This approach encourages your dog to relax and absorb more of the training. It also results in your dog’s ability to follow commands in the presence of other distractions. Without his anxious state of mind and equipped with guidance to understand what is expected, your dog knows how to behave and both of you are more relaxed to enjoy everyday adventures.
