Board & Train Programs  

Thank you for choosing The Refined K9 for your Dog Training needs. We offer holistic training programs centered on the relationship between the dog and the owner; instead of just sits and downs. These programs intend to jump start your dog toward success by offering him/her consistency through a short term Board & Train Program, and then coaching the owner through continuing progress at home.
