BOARD & TRAIN PROGRAMs 

Our Board and Train programs are held inside of our Owner/Lead Trainers personal home. Each dog is treated as an individual, there isn't a "cookie cutter" plan to our training programs. Each dog will move at the speed that he/she is capable of moving in, and not all dogs will reach an apex of off leash training due to temperament or personality; but all goals will try to be reached during the allotted time frame. Some dogs need a longer time frame, which is why our programs are longer than most. We don't believe in rushing the dogs in a "bootcamp" style training atmosphere, and so we offer slower paced fun programs to enhance your dogs learning environment. Dogs dont like to be away from mom or dad, so the first few days are play and bonding exercises to get your pup used to be away from home; and then once they are comfortable we will begin with formal training cues and behavior shaping. We look forward to having your pup stay with us!
