Board & Train

With programs ranging from 2 – 6 weeks, we will customize a curriculum that addresses your concerns and goals for your puppy or dog.  Using training best practices, daily structure and engagement with different scenarios and social stimuli, your dog will receive dedicated obedience training, socialization, exercise and experiences to build the foundation for a well-balanced pup.  All programs will include the foundation of obedience such as sit, down, come, manners in both our controlled home-based and external environments.  As your dog progresses, we will add heel, leash walking, extended stays and other more advanced skills.

For younger pups (between 4 and 6 months), we will also focus on potty training, socialization, eating behavior and other puppy-oriented activities.

After all Board and Train programs, we will provide a one hour in home session to go over your dog’s progress and ensure that you have the knowledge and tools to build on your training investment.  Your will also receive unlimited phone consultation and discounted private or group sessions for 1 year after completion of the program.
