Board & Train programs are designed to expedite the training process. These programs are intensive lifestyle immersion programs, customized to meet the training needs of each client team. Your dog receives multiple training sessions throughout the day, plenty of off-leash play time, and socialization with other dogs. Training is conducted both at my home and out in public areas to proof obedience and behavior in a variety of environments.
One of the most unique features of this program is the “real world” component of training. I don’t just train the dogs at my facility, but also take them out into the real world and expose them to a variety of environments. By training the dogs around high levels of distractions, we develop a level of obedience and confidence that surpasses other dog training programs.
I provide daily photos and videos of the dogs in training, and show the training process, the results, and how we achieved those results. Owners can watch their dogs during their training with me, and also receive detailed email updates during the program.
I am client-focused dog trainer, meaning I don’t just train your dog, I train you! All of my board and train programs come with extensive owner training. Owners receive private lessons during and after their dog has completed training. Additional follow up lessons are also included in the program to ensure that owners feel confident and supported after their dog returns home from training.
What about off-leash training?
There are many reasons to off-leash train your dog, safety being the most important! When our dogs are off-leash trained, we are able to better communicate with them in our home, backyard, while on a walk, hiking, or during any other outdoor activity. When your dog is off-leash trained, they can be given more freedom to enjoy “being a dog”. They can run around, smell, explore, and enjoy other activities that wouldn’t be possible if they were always on-leash.
All Board & Train programs begin with an initial consultation. This can be done over the phone, or if you prefer, you may visit my home facility, meet me in person. During the consultation, we will discuss your dog’s behavior, previous training, your lifestyle, and training goals/expectations. We will also discuss my training philosophy, style, and tools used during training. This is of course a great time to ask any questions you may have regarding the training process.
