Board and Train Programs
Our most popular solution, providing dramatic results immediately, to get you back on track and loving life with your dog!
Due to the often deeply ingrained behavior patterns some dogs establish, Board & Train programs can be the most fair and successful environment for overhauling big issues that take big time consistency to alter. By removing a dog from their familiar home, we interrupt old patterns, and cause them to think more about the choices they make. Our Board and Train results are dramatic and life changing for owners previously suffering from so much stress, fear, or anxiety due to their dog’s behavior. In many cases we have empowered owners to keep the dog they were considering re-homing, and put a stop to serious heartache and loss. Board and Train includes our specialty remote or “e” collar training program, garnering the best off leash reliability and precision obedience results for your dog.
- Stop destruction
- Stop separation anxiety
- Stop obnoxious barking
- Stop lunging and reactivity on leash
- Stop fighting in the home
- Stop pulling on walks
- Stop digging
- Stop chasing small animals
- Stop whining
Our Board & Train Program is three weeks, but some dog behavior issues may require more time. We can advise of what to expect during an initial evaluation or one-one-one training session if you feel your dog may be a candidate for more or less time.
During your dog’s stay, they will be taking several walks per day, experience training sessions each day, have social time and conditioning based on ability and behavior issues, learn to be calm and collected while crated, and much more. Our training program for all B&T dogs always includes the following base commands:
Place command – (for the dog this means “lay down on this spot and stay put with a calm mind”)
Duration work – your dog’s off switch. Teaches calm on command, so you have a chill dog when you need it.
Recall – come when called.
Heel – walks politely at your side without pulling/off leash (off leash abilities depending on length of stay).
Out – our “leave it” command (addresses resource guarding as well)

Rescheduling is permitted with one week’s notice, the full paid value of your board and train stay must be used within 90 days.
An E Collar Technologies Remote Collar will be fitted and supplied for your dog while they are with us, the price for all necessary training tools is included in our Board and Train cost. We fit all E Collar Tech collars with a quick release, easy fit collar strap, as an added bonus to make your use of the e collar as easy as possible.
Puppies must be at least 6 months old, and have experience with crate training to attend board and train.
For a idea of what Board & Train can give you and your dog in just a short amount of time, please enjoy this little video from our follow up session with Brooklyn and her owner, Andrea. Brooklyn was a B&T guest who became fully off-leash e collar trained after staying with us for less than a week. Her owners have been thrilled with their new found calm and consistency, Brooklyn’s formerly cranky behavior towards other dogs on walks has ceased, her habitual barking and fence aggression has stopped, she no longer pulls on walks, or plants herself and refuses to change directions, and the list goes on. Awesome, quick change for both dog and owner to enjoy forever!
