• Board & Train Dog Training

    What is it?
    Your dog will stay with us and complete training sessions each day

  • A Working Vacation For Your Dog

    There are many “board and train” services available from dog trainers in the area. By and large, these are offered by trainers that offer a “guarantee” of some sort and use aversive techniques like shock collars (e-collars), prong collars, choke chains, spray bottles, and any number of other techniques that we neither suggest nor tolerate.

    In case you haven’t noticed by now, we are purely positive! In accordance with that approach, our board and train dog training service is more like a working vacation for your dog than a “boot camp”, which just sounds scary when you think about it. We work with pet dogs and at the core of our training philosophy is a belief and understanding that better communication with your dog leads to a much better and more enriching human/canine bond. That is what we work toward in our training sessions.

    If your goal is to help your dog become socialized and an overall better member of your family, our board and train service is for you.

  • What Will We Be Doing?

    Glad you asked. Board and train includes sessions in your home both before and after our board and train program so you know precisely what we’ve done while training your dog, and why. While your dog stays with us, he’ll sleep comfortably overnight and play with other dogs at daycare during the day. We’ll engage in 3-4 specific training sessions each day, take your dog for a walk each day and, perhaps most importantly, take him out for socialization sessions 3-4 times per week.

    These sessions include taking rides in the car with us, going to dog-friendly establishments like Petco and Home Depot, going to the park, and other situations where your dog will be exposed to the “real world,” just like he will be when he’s with you.

    Oh – and while he’s with us, WE WILL HAVE FUN! Because if you’re not having fun, what’s the point?

  • Purely Positive Dog Training

    Our techniques are purely positive. We don’t advocate a human/dog relationship based on fear and/or coercion, and do not support or use choke collars, prong collars, shock collars or any aversive techniques that may damage your dogs trust in you or in humankind.
