Board and Train

For those seeking obedience training, we will focus on the core commands of Sit, Down, Come, Heel, and Place (go to bed). All commands will be performed by your dog both on and off-leash. For those seeking behavior modification, we will focus only on specific commands that will impact the target behavior problem, spending greater time addressing the underlying causes of the problem behavior. All programs focus heavily on physical exercise and mental enrichment as the cornerstone for emotional and behavioral wellness.
*We do not offer one or two week Board and Trains for clients that we have not already worked with. We are very proud of the quality of our work and dogs require 3 weeks or more to grasp many of the training concepts.
**Board and Trains book in advance (currently 2-3 months) and require a 25% deposit at time of booking.
