Board & Train 

$1500/2 weeks*, $1900/3 weeks*, $2900/5 weeks*

Our highly regarded Board & Train program is a great option for any dog!  We see every sort of dog in our Board & Train program from goofy and outgoing to shy and timid to reactive or aggressive.  Our Board & Train program is highly recommended for all dogs and mandatory for dogs who are struggling with any amount of reactivity, aggression, resource guarding, or other intense issues.  During this program your dog will live with us in our home and receive training around the clock as they join our day to day routine.  Most dogs benefit immensely from becoming fully immersed in the training process and this approach allows us to give very specialized, one-on-one attention to your dog and your unique situation.  We find that this approach allows us to more quickly find the root of your dog’s issues and get to work implementing the solutions and strategies for success.  But don't worry!  You, the owner, will benefit from a lot of personalized training as well.  We start involving you, the owner, half way through the program to bring you up to speed on what your dog has learned and to teach you how to use the tools and how to live 'the training lifestyle' in preparation for your dog's return home.  Our board and train clients enjoy a lot more, and a lot faster, training success because they learn the skills they need to take over once the dog has been trained by us.  It can be a bit bumpy for the dog and the owner to learn at the same time, so in this program we strive to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible for both of you by first training the dog and then bringing in the owner and training you.  So not to worry, you won't miss out on a thing!

We specialize in modern, low level, communication style E-Collar training.  Our E-Collar program is nothing like the E-Collar training of the past.  Modern E-Collar Training utilizes the softest, most gentle remote communication, and is one of the most humane and effective approaches available in dog training.  We pride ourselves on our compassionate and fair approach.

During our Board & Train program, we will address all forms of unwanted behavior, including, but not limited to: reactivity, resource guarding, separation anxiety, fear/insecurity, jumping, nipping/mouthing, counter surfing, etc.  We will also cover the basic commands Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place, Heel, Come/Recall – as well as Crate Training, Waiting for Food, and Waiting at Thresholds.

This program includes a minimum of 2 weeks and can be expanded to 3 or 5 weeks if needed.  We also include approximately 3.5 hours of one-on-one training for you the owner: a 30 minute meeting at our place at time of drop off; two 1 hour go home sessions where we will transfer all the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success; one 1 hour follow up at our place; email and phone support after the program is completed.
