The Board and Train

We pride ourselves in creating a learning experience in the comfort of our home for the dogs we work with. We are not a typical kennel setup, we only take 3 dogs to train in our home as apart of our family. 


During the board and train your dog is treated as one of our pack, learning in real world scenarios, daily. We then take our boarders into the real world to practice skills that will last a life time. 


It is important that owners understanding this is an educational program for them as much as it is for their dog. Owners need to be open to changing daily life habits, because for the best results the training must be applied in to daily life. We provide multiple forms of learning, daily updates, and videos so that you are learning right along with your dog! 


This program is customized to every dog and their needs, this is why we do not believe in a 2 week or 4 week program. This program ranges from 4-8 weeks, because we go the dogs pace and ensure they are enjoying the learning process. This is also a benefit because we are able to create habits for the dog so that when they do come home they have a learning curve while you get the hang of applying the training! 


We teach off leash and on leash skills ensuring the dog has mastered the understanding of both so that you can take them practically anywhere with ease. 


We believe in changing the overall mindset of the dog to be respectful, calm, and courteous. It is in our best interest to do this well because it will show in the dogs overall behavior and they are living with us for a short time so we set our expectations high. 


Every dog who goes through the board and train will gain great social skills. They live with our pack of 3 well balanced, socialized, and properly communicative dogs. Throughout the training process we introduce them to different environments where they are expected to act mannerly and we advocate for their safety at all times. 


And most importantly we teach every board and train client (dog and owner) a clear and decisive communication system. This system is easy to understand and will deepen your relationship with your dog as you are able to understand each other on another level than before. We ensure that every client has a deep understanding of all tools used in the training system, from the leash, ecollar, and food.
