Board & Train

Our economical “board and train” programs offer you the convenience of dropping off your dog for a 15, 21 or 30-day course of training and overnight care. For roughly the cost of boarding alone in many places, you can give your dog a week or two at the doggie spa! Your dog will stay in our comfortable, engaging facilities and learn new skills.

All of our training is done in our heated and air conditioned training facility, which has lots of room for free movement and padded mats for your dog’s comfort and safety. We use positive reinforcement to teach dogs desirable behavior and help eliminate undesirable habits rather than traditional methods of training. Positive reinforcement is not only kinder, it is also a more effective method of training.

When you return for your companion, you’ll be astonished at what a short amount of intensive training can accomplish. I’ll work with you before you leave to help ensure that your dog keeps up the good work at home, too.

If you’re going out of town and worry about the cost and conditions of boarding your dog, our Board & Train program is just what you need. Don’t feel guilty about leaving your best buddy—they will be hard at work while you’re gone, staying and playing in a stimulating environment and having a lot of fun while she learns new skills!
