What do we train for? What do I need to bring for my dog?

 Each program is tailored specifically for each family.  Our most common requests are: 

  • Basics:  sit, down, stay, name recognition, recall, crate training, leash skills, skills in public, social skills, boundary holding, eye contact.
  •  Aggression and reactivity 
  •  Puppy foundations  
  •  Anxiety and fears
  •  Unruly and out of control
  •  Refresher Training! Bring them in to tighten it back up

 

What you need to bring for your dog during his or her stay:


  •  More than enough food 
  •  Proof of vaccinations and current on flea prevention    
  •  Small blanket that smells like home and is easily washable 
  •  Collar with ID tag

What’s it like?

  • Multiple work sessions daily
  • Everyone works for their food as well as high value food reward, getting the remainder of their day’s ration at dinner. 
  • We train on the property inside as well as outside, also going out and about to various locations. Everyone gets ample house time daily.
  • They work individually, in groups, alongside other dogs, are exposed to a variety of people and often proof their skills on additional handlers.
  • They are exercised daily, go for training walks and of course have some free time to just be a dog. 
  • They overnight in the dog room attached to our home. This is where we utilize crates and 5x5 pens. It is temperature controlled and they are provided with music, a nightlight and oil diffuser.
  • We have multiple outdoor potty pens, a fully fenced play yard, training field and barn that we utilize during  inclement weather.

For example: 4wks of board and train, one hour session upon pick up, and three more sessions each following week for a total of 4 sessions during the four weeks following completion of board and train.
