Board and Train

Board and train programs are the most popular dog training service amongst pet owners. However, we found the cookie cutter routine of a two or even a three week program were not meeting the dog’s needs and leaving so much vital information out for long term success.

So, we decided to think outside of the box and offer programs that not only train the dog, but also teach you, the owner during your dog’s stay with us. We offer three types of board and train programs, each individually made for specific behaviors while keeping your dog’s emotional wellbeing in the forefront of our training. We use a mixture of play, relaxation, and guidance to accomplish obedience, manners, and behavior goals you may have in mind.

Located on 10 acres, the daily life of our board and train pup is enriched with multiple walks, training sessions, social groups, one on one play, and down time with our trainers. Each pup is assigned their own private indoor kennel that is temperature controlled and their own private outdoor kennel. We strive to make your dog’s stay comfortable, so they can focus on the things they’re being taught.

All dogs coming for a board and train must bring a copy of their vaccinations, food for their stay, and any medicine they may need.

Jumpstart Board and Train

Your dog is an embarrassment! 

They are wild and jump all over everyone when they come in.

They dart out the door as soon as they spot a chance to make a break for it.

They drag you down the street on walks.

Dogs are supposed to be fun.  Not stress! 

You know your dog (or your new puppy) needs training.  Would you love to be involved in your dog’s training but would really like to have a jump start, too?

This program is the best of both worlds!

In our programs, we do the hardest part for you… the initial training.

So when we start teaching you, your dog is already on their way to reliably and happily listening.

We spend time really getting to know your dog and not rushing the first part, so the training sticks long term without having to rely on food or training tools.

Think about the pride you will have when people stop you and are amazed by your dog’s manners.

This program is perfect for those who want their dog to be more polite at home with an awesome 1-on-1 jump start for your dog.  It includes private lessons during your dog’s stay, and ongoing support.  You’re also invited to come practice your dog’s new listening skills around a supportive group of other dogs and their families at our monthly training socials.

This program includes:

  • Up to 2 week stay for your dog with your trainer
  • 2 private lessons with you throughout that stay (so you can visit your dog and learn as they learn)
  • 1 follow up private lesson you can use later for polishing your skills
  • 3 months of ongoing support via phone, text and email
  • Invite to monthly group socials
  • Video library to help you implement and maintain your dog’s training
  • Behaviors: no more jumping, nipping, or pulling on the leash

Dependable Dog Program

Right now your dog is driving you crazy. 

You breathe a sigh of relief when you get away from the chaos. 

But you got a dog because you want to enjoy life with them. 

Go places, have people over… and know they’ll still pay attention.

Not only will your dog have amazing house manners – not pulling you on walks, not jumping on your guests, and settling down calmly when you need them to – you’ll also be heard and listened to with there are more distractions around!

Your dog could be so much more a part of your family fun if only they listened better, right? 

You’d love to really enjoy owning a dog… and this program will give you the freedom to take them with you out and about.  

You can take your dog out to outdoor restaurants and have people compliment you on how well behaved they are.  Instead of being frustrated that they are a bit on the unpredictable side.  

We’ll also teach them to listen to you when you ask them to sit, lay down, come, and go stay on their bed.

This program is perfect for those who want a well mannered dog in and out of the home. Your dog will stay with us (usually 3-4 weeks so we have plenty of time to teach them in all different situations and teach you throughout that time too). During and after training we’ll keep teaching you how to continue and maintain what your dog has learned during their stay with us.

This program includes:

  • Up to 4 week stay for your dog with your trainer
  • 3 private lessons with you throughout that stay (so you can visit your dog and learn as they learn)
  • 2 follow up private lesson you can use later for polishing your skills
  • 6 months of ongoing support via phone, text, email and IN PERSON
  • Invite to monthly group socials
  • Video library to help you implement and maintain your dog’s training
  • Behaviors: no more jumping, nipping, or pulling on the leash
  • Commands: sit, down, come and place (stay on a bed)

Dream Dog Program

Do you want a well-trained dog but don’t have the time to devote to training your dog to listen reliably? 

Are you a busy family but want a well-behaved dog to take anywhere your schedule takes you? 

Or maybe your dog has some more severe behaviors like being fearful or overreacting to other dogs or people?

With this program, not only will we make sure your dog has excellent house manners and listens to you even around distractions, we’ll also make sure your dog listens when they don’t have a leash on…

Which is awesome because most family dogs spend 99% of the time off-leash at home.  You’ll be able to get them to listen without having to physically be near them. 

The longer stay for your dog gives your dog the strongest foundation, because we’ll have more time with them to get to know them inside out (we’ll know how your unique dog learns so the training is easier and fun), which means your dog is further along in training when they come home.  

We’ll take them out on field trips to make sure they happily pay attention even out and about town. And come to you no matter the distraction.

This saves you even more time and effort in the very beginning before we teach you how to maintain their training.

Then we’ll teach you everything you need to know and practice with you for as many lessons as you’d like since this program also includes unlimited private lessons AND lifetime support.

This program is perfect for those who explore the world with their dog off the lead or are dealing with a behavior problem, such as shyness. Your dog will stay with us (usually 5-6 weeks) to learn how to listen on and off the leash in multiple environments and be confident in meeting new people and dogs. You will be invited out during your dog’s stay to learn with your pup and learn the skills to set yourself and your dog up for success.

This program includes:

  • Up to 6 week stay for your dog with your trainer
  • Private lessons with you throughout that stay (so you can visit your dog and learn as they learn)
  • UNLIMITED follow up private lesson you can use later for polishing your skills
  • LIFETIME ongoing support via phone, text, email and IN PERSON
  • Invite to monthly group socials
  • Video library to help you implement and maintain your dog’s training
  • Behaviors: no more jumping, nipping, or pulling on the leash.  Social skills with dogs and people, crate training, and working on any more severe behaviors like fear and aggression.
  • Commands: sit, down, come and place (stay on a bed) on AND off leash
