In-Board Training

What started out as an intensive program for problem dogs, our In-Board Training Program has become the most successful and popular training option for clients with any pup. When you are hanging out with your dog, every interaction is a learning interaction, and sometimes owners are accidentally teaching behaviors that they don’t particularly appreciate. Our in-board program provides consistency when owners can not. Visit our In-Board Training Page for more details! Cost of In-Board is $125/day or $2650 for our Complete Obedience Package.

Highlights of the program – approximately 4 weeks of training. Motivational Foundation followed by gradual increase of distance, distraction and duration. Week 4 “Out and About Week” where we take your pup into various social settings to make sure things are functional. Unlimited follow-up to ensure you are working together as a team 🙂 On leash reliability of all commands, with off-Leash recalls and stays. A minimum of bi-weekly updates, and visits are welcomed. Check out our social media to see what our current dogs are up to. 

Please note – our Complete Obedience In-Board Program is generally booked two to three months in advance. It never hurts to see if we have had something open up sooner, but plan ahead to take advantage of this sought after training opportunity.
