Board & Train
Our Board & Train is an intensive training package that entails your dog coming over to live in my home and train in a loving, comfortable, and safe environment around real life situations and needs.
This allows the training to transfer much more effectively to your home as opposed to a facility training program because we are already training around normal day to day activities such as doing laundry, cooking, guests, trash cans, doorbell ringing etc. instead of an empty room.
With this type of training they are also able to have playtime with the other dogs while they are here for great safe socializing as well as work alongside them to practice their cues around distractions. They also get the in home privileges of being able to cuddle during a movie with me or simply be out and around the home with more freedom as their training progresses to mirror the ideal home experience as much as possible. (We do not recommend or utilize dog parks for socializing as you cannot control the other dogs and would not necessarily know if they are vaccinated, safety first!)
These packages range from 2-6 weeks long. Typical recommendation for new puppies is 3-4 weeks. Recommended package lengths will vary depending on the training goals as each package is specific to you and your dogs needs. You are welcome to come visit while they are over as well.
For Puppies -
A Board & Train package is a wonderful option for a new addition who is in need of a great first start.
Potty training, mouthing/biting, chewing, crate training, as well as foundation cues such as sit, down, leave-it, drop-it, come when called, wait, look and others. Included safe socializing with dogs, humans, and outings to see new places, smells and noises. These are all vital requirements for a balanced and happy dog for life. A Board and Train is a great way to start them off on the right paw!

For Adult Dogs-
A Board & Train package is not only for the little guys! This is a great training route for a possibly more mature rescue dog who didn't quite get the chance to learn their manners when they were young or simply for any dog who needs a refresher in their training. Each package is tailored to you and your dogs needs, we focus on what is most important and beneficial to you and your dog's happiness. Package recommendations will vary on details of training goals.

You also have a lot of perks included in a Board & Train package :
Q: "Will they listen to me if you do the training there?"
A: Yes, that is the benefit of positive reinforcement & marker training. They are learning the actual cues to respond to instead of only to fear or 'respect' a single person. They are already conditioned to listen to more than a single person when they return home through socializing and proofing their cues. There are instructions we go through to ensure that the training properly transfers home. Private sessions included to follow up together to ensure you are comfortable and confident in applying the training once they return home and address any needs in training progression.
