Board & Train

Board & Train Overview

We offer daily training lessons, with a dedicated trainer, mixed in with socialization and exercise. 

Our goal is to build a solid training foundation through correction of bad behaviors and rewards for good behavior. Dogs receive positive reinforcement, direction, conditioning and social skills. 

The one-on-one training time is structured for mental and physical exercises and following commands and behavior changes.

Upon check-out customers participate in a lesson that includes a complete recap of how to continue with the training at home.

PLEASE NOTE: Owners need to follow through with training, for a successful transition, once their dog completes our program.

Puppy Program

Puppy Training program begins with leash walking, crate training, socialization, and basic manners. Followed by structured days of learning and obedience. We will focus on introducing puppies to new sights and sounds as well as positive interactions with other dogs and new people. This should help  overcome fears and build confidence.

Puppy training is the foundation that builds the beginning of a structured and balanced life at home.

Two-Week Program

This is an all-around learning program with daily experiences. Dogs learn about eye contact, spacial pressure, verbal commands, and hand signals for obedience.

Our training methods are positive reinforcement with conditioning exercises to teach your dog what we want them to do instead of punishing them for unwanted behaviors.

Structured lessons are reinforced during the training which includes leash walking, waiting at doors, no jumping, and obedience commands; down, stay and wait.

During your check-out lesson you will receive a hands on demonstration and notes for you to refer to at home.

Three-Week Program

A similar plan as the two-week program, but offers more advanced obedience, social skills, and addresses problem behaviors.

The third week allows for tightening up the commands and training in more distracting settings.

Dogs will be conditioned around other dogs and people and proofed for consistency and reliability.

A check-out lesson allows owners to see the results as well as practice for themselves.

A hands-on demonstration is included at check out along with detailed notes for follow up at home.
