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. 

We accept up to 8 short term board & train programs at a time. We fill up 2-3 months in advance, so please reserve your program ahead of time.
