Board & Train

Our board and train programs are the most popular and effective way to achieve the relationship and control you always wanted with your dog. Whatever your goals and challenges, we are here to help.

We offer several board and train programs to fit you and your dog’s needs, goals, and issues. Each board and train program is customized to the dog and owner. You will discuss all your goals and issues in detail with your trainer before you drop-off your dog to make sure we properly address all your concerns and you fully understand the program. During training, the trainers will send you progress reports to keep you in the loop as to your dog’s progress. 

We do offer day school options for people who prefer to drop-off and pick-up their dog daily. This option is only available for our puppy program and basic adult programs.

What Can I Expect?

During training, you can call or email your trainer whenever you need. At the end of training, you will receive training on what your dog knows and how to continue everything at home. The number of lessons depend on the program. After training, you have lifetime phone and email support. Call us anytime if you have a question or problem.

How Long Is The Training?

Board and train programs range from a 12 day basic on-leash program to two-weeks to six-weeks depending on your needs and the dog's behavioral problems.

We offer 5 day, M-F custom programs for leash manners only, crate/potty training basics, and treadmill training for dogs without other behavioral challenges.

The difference between two and three week board and train programs is the three week program allows for more repetitions, environmental exposure and conditioning. The three week program allows us to deliver a more reliable and consistent dog. While both programs deliver transformational results, the three week program gives us time for more training to set the behaviors. With dog training, more is better!

Keep in mind, as a general rule it takes 50-120 repetitions to associate a command to a behavior in a low distraction environment. It takes 2,000+ to commit the behavior to solidly commit the skill to long-term memory and perform in high distraction environments.

What Happens Next?
