Board and Train

At our board and train program, we offer comprehensive training for dogs of all ages and breeds. Whether you have a new puppy or an adult dog with behavior issues, we can help.

During our board and train program, your dog will receive personalized attention and training from our experienced trainers. We offer both positive reinforcement and balanced training techniques, depending on the needs of your dog.

Positive reinforcement training involves rewarding your dog for good behavior, such as sitting, staying, or coming when called. We use treats, praise, and toys to reinforce positive behaviors and motivate your dog to continue doing them.

Balanced training involves a combination of positive reinforcement and corrective techniques. We use corrective techniques to address unwanted behaviors, such as jumping, barking, or pulling on the leash. These techniques may include verbal corrections, leash corrections, or physical corrections, but they are always used in a safe and humane way.

During our board and train program, your dog will learn basic obedience commands, such as sit, stay, come, and heel. We will also work on more advanced commands, such as off-leash recall, place, and down-stay. In addition, we will address any behavior issues your dog may have, such as aggression, anxiety, fear, or separation anxiety.

We understand that every dog is unique, which is why we tailor our training approach to meet the individual needs of each dog and their owner. We will discuss with you which training approach is best for your dog and work with you to create a personalized training plan.

If you’re interested in our board and train program, please contact us today to learn more about our approach and how we can help you and your furry friend.
