About Our Board And Train Program.

A Board and Train program is where your dog comes and stays with us for the duration of their training. Our board and train program is ideal for people who either do not have the time to train their dog or those whose dog is exhibiting severe behavioral problems.

A board and training program can help your pet transform their mindset and live a happier life. The training sessions make up the bulk of your dog’s day. We offer specialized packages that are tailored to each dog’s personality and needs. Depending on the dog, we may be focusing on one major task the entire duration of their stay or teaching a variety of new behaviors. What’s most important is establishing trust and a clear communication system with your dog, so they feel comfortable working with us and taking what they learn back home to you.

We specialize in dog and owner training
