BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAM (ages 7 months and up)

image38

$3,200 for Advanced Obedience and Off Leash Remote E-Collar Training. 


3 week overnight Board and Train program. includes private appointments to train the humans, too.


We specialize in board and trains and this is our most popular results-driven program! Let us set you up for success by laying a solid foundation for you to maintain.  We will teach your dog essential life skills and advanced obedience commands both on and off leash. More importantly, we will help your dog achieve a balanced mindset and teach them what state of mind they should be in for different activities. For example, we can have an excited mind when running for recall, but we don't want excitement when greeting strangers in public. We like to teach dogs many default behaviors and permission based behaviors so they're not relying on constant prompts or management from people. Not only will they know HOW to perform commands, but they will also know WHEN to offer the behaviors. Your dog will stay in my home for 3 weeks, and we'll be out training on leash in town and  adventuring off leash on the trails.  You will learn the nuances of canine communication, how to support your dog with proper leadership and care and how to fulfill your dog's needs for exercise, structure and daily mental stimulation.  The humans will receive about 10 hours of private training before the dog comes back home. This is an essential part of our success.
