Board/Train Program

How does the program work?

Send your dog to us for training.  Get started with your 1st session and our trainer will arrive at your doorstep to observe/evaluate the dogs’ behavior, level of training, and address any other areas of concern. Furthermore, after observing behavior in the home, be advised that we may recommend private training. However if a board and train is, consequently the best option we will schedule a date for you to bring in your pup in for training. The cost of the 1st session can be applied to your total cost. Please ask your trainer for details.  

Learn the basics

Upon your dogs’ arrival at the ranch, one of our trainers will begin working with your dog daily. We guarantee a minimum of 2 training sessions per day, and in most cases, it’s much more.  We will cover Come, Sit, Heel, Heel Stationary, Down and Stay at a minimum.  We will take your dog from what ever level of training it currently has and take it a step further.  In some cases we can do appropriate dog interaction and public training.  Do you need something special? We can accommodate special training requests. 

Ranch Style Kennel

We work closely with a local dog boarding and daycare  to feed and board for our dogs in training. Your dog will not be kept in a crate.   When they are not with a trainer they are in their own private indoor/outdoor kennel run. Furthermore, the property is on a functional country ranch with over an acre of space and a couple of horses too.  We have a large Agility/confidence course and lots of shade.  In addition, there is plenty of open space to train and kennel staff lives on site. 

Stay Updated

Stay updated on your dogs’ training progress with periodic photos and update texts, but once they start training it’s best to not to interrupt the process. Space is very limited so call to check availability.
