Board and Train

Let your dog spend a few weeks at Ruff House Pet Resort! In addition to group play and exercise, dogs receive daily lessons with a dedicated trainer. Our goal is to build a solid training foundation through correction of bad behaviors and rewards for good behavior. Dogs receive positive reinforcement, motivation, conditioning and social skills during group play. The structured one-on-one training time uses mental exercises to challenge your dog to focus on us and learn commands. Upon check-out customers observe a lesson that includes details for follow up and scheduling of your final at home review lesson!

NOTE: It is very important to us to educate dog owners and help them understand that they need to follow through with training for a successful transition once their dog returns home from a Board and Train Program.

2 Week Puppy Program
Designed to help puppies learn basic obedience while socializing them to other dog breeds, people, new noises, and different floor surfaces. At this age puppies can be fearful so we focus on helping them overcome fears and build their confidence. Puppies learn to make eye contact with owners and follow desired verbal commands and hand signals. We’ll help with mouthing, potty training and crate training. Puppy training is the foundation that builds the beginning of a structured and balanced life at home.

2 Week Basic Program– Focused on basic obedience. Dogs will learn eye contact, verbal commands and hand signals for sit, down, stay, wait, and come. Our training methods are positive reinforcement with conditioning exercises to teach your dog what we want them to do instead of punished them for bad behaviors. Leash Walking, down stays, and wait commands will be reinforced during training. A check-out lesson and in-home, follow up lesson are included with this training program.

3 Week Intermediate Program– Focused on basic obedience and some advanced social skills. Dogs learn eye contact, verbal commands and hand signals for sit, down, wait and recall. Our training methods are positive reinforcement with conditioning exercises to teach your dog what we want them to do instead of punished them for bad behaviors. After the first 2 weeks of obedience training we spend the 3rd week tightening up the commands and training in more public settings. Dogs will learn to be well mannered around other dogs and people in public. A check-out lesson and in-home, follow up lesson are included with this training program.

4 Week Behavior ModificationProgram– Focused on advanced obedience and behavior modification training. We are committed to learning about your dogs specific issues and designing a program that best fits their needs. The 4 week training can be completed into a few different schedules. 3 weeks Ruff House, 1 week home, 1 week Ruff House or 2 weeks Ruff House, 1 week home, 2 weeks Ruff House. Our training methods are positive reinforcement with conditioning exercises to teach your dog what we want them to do instead of punished them for bad behaviors. We typically see that most dogs that need behavior modification are rescue dogs that have been adopted. We do not always have a history on the dog or know the reasons for the behaviors or lack of social skills. Dogs will learn structure, obedience, manners, and confidence building exercises. Advanced training will include work in public settings outside of the pet resort. A check-out lesson and in-home, follow up lesson are included with this training program.
