Board & Train

Board & Trains are a great option for families with limited schedule availability, going on vacation, or in need of a more intensive training experience. With a Board & Train your dog stays here with me in my home during their training. You also are taught how to use the skills your dog has learned before your dog goes home. In order to give your dog as much attention as possible we only accept a couple Board & Train clients at a time, so please book in advance as these can fill quickly.

Here are some examples of things that can be worked on in board & trains:​
  • ​Biting, growling, or other aggressive behavior towards dogs and people

  • Growling/biting to protect toys, food, bones, etc. (resource guarding)

  • Sport dog foundations and skills

  • Service Dog skills

  • Off leash skills

  • Crate training and housebreaking

  • Separation Anxiety, destruction, or other trouble being home alone

  • Fearful behaviors

  • Demand barking or barking in the car

  • Pulling on leash, jumping up, not coming when called, etc.

  • Basic Skills  (sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, focusing around distractions)
