BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAMS
Our Board and Train Programs are our most popular option, because it allows us to get the dogs to a better place in training, prior to coaching and educating owners on how to maintain the progress. Having dogs stay with us for three, six or eight weeks gives us the proper amount of time to teach better behaviors and practice them consistently so they start to become habits. Regardless of what behaviors are looking to be worked on, we start all dogs off with a solid foundation and clear communication, once that is established, we are in a position to start advancing and working on the behaviors we want to teach dogs to overcome, and to start making better decisions in the areas they may have previously struggled in. With the fundamentals in place prior to advancing the training, it allows the dogs to have a fair chance at making correct choices, where they may have instinctually chose otherwise in the past, and to practice being successful in those areas or understanding and willingly take direction from us when they feel uncomfortable, and enjoy doing so in the process.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
- A 90 day instructional document to keep you on the path of success after the program is completed

Board & Train – 3 Weeks
This program is geared more toward dogs who have what we call “knucklehead” behavior, but not severe behavioral. *In some cases if we believe more time is necessary we may suggest an extra week.

Board & Train – 6 Weeks
Our six week program is our most popular option because this length of time allows us to work dogs through their behavioral problems without pushing them too soon before they are ready for the challenge. We want to make sure that all dogs have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals prior to addressing unwanted behaviors.
*$450 for additional weeks
Board & Train – 8 Weeks
This program is what we would suggest for everyone, but we all know that leaving your dog for 8 weeks can be difficult. The more time we have to really hone in on a dog’s training the better habits they will form. Eight weeks is for all dogs from puppies to older dogs and with any behavioral issue.

Board & Train Refresher/E-Collar – 2 Weeks
The refresher/e-collar board and train program helps dogs get back into the tip top training shape they were in during the initial board and train or for dogs who have completed the puppy board and train program, and are continuing with e-collar training.
We all understand that in life, obstacles are thrown at us and it is easy to get side tracked. Sometimes when this happens, training takes a back seat. Since the foundation work is already in place from the first board and train, a refresher course will help you and your dog get right back on track!
Note: This program is only available to clients who have completed one of our board and train programs in the past or have signed up for e-collar training at the time they enrolled their dog into our one week puppy board and train program.
Cost for E-Collar Training: $950*
Cost for Refresher Training: $750*
