Board and Train means your dog will be staying with us for the entire duration of the training, which ranges from 3 to 8 weeks. When your dog stays with us, it allows us to see their true behavior once they become more comfortable. It usually takes a few days for a dog to adapt to a new environment, and from there we can build a trusting relationship with them. Your dog will be learning 24/7, as even on their downtime we are teaching them to be calm inside their kennels or on their placemats. They quickly learn to respect their home and not treat it as a playground. The quicker they learn house rules, the quicker they get to play! Dogs learn from basic commands on-leash, to off-leash commands at an expert level. We love going on training field trips, which means our boarding students get to enjoy trips every week to the pet stores, department stores, parks, and even to our favorite coffee shops! Being in different environments helps dogs explore different opportunities to learn manners outdoors with real life experiences. Once your dog graduates from our Academy, we will then teach you the how to communicate with your dog so you can easily maintain the training at home and continue effortlessly with your every day lives! Private sessions are great if you are willing to put the time into learning how to train your dog on your own. Sessions are held twice per week, and the duration of each class is roughly one hour. With our guidance, you will learn how to teach your dog basic on leash commands. Once your dog has learned commands on leash, you can keep coming back to advance your dog little by little, depending on you and your dog’s training pace. It is typically a longer process, and if you don’t do your training homework on the days we don’t meet, your dog will not be able to learn as quickly, therefore not seeing effective results. Any program works if you put the time into it, and we thrive on seeing you succeed with your pup!
