Adult Dog Board & Train/Day School

B for Board. S for School. R for Results

Sometimes you need a fast track to relief and results. Board & Train/Day School is that ticket. Your dog comes to stay with or spends the day learning from our loving, certified professional trainer. This means a faster and easier transfer of results back at home.

Why Board & Train/Day School:

You’re busy? Your dog’s bad habits are growing faster than you have the time to train? It’s time to hit the reset button with your dog? You need quick results? You need a break? You need to focus on other important items on your check list?

What does Adolescent/Adult Dog Basic Manners Training Cover?

Basic manners are more than just basic behaviors like sit, down, watch, leave it, and stay. Basic manners are about calm focus. They are about teaching your dog to listen to you, no matter where you are – at home or in public. The Basic Manners Board & Train/Day School program covers:

  • Pay attention and listen to me – no matter where we are
  • Basic Manners: Sit, Down, Come, Leave it, Drop it, Wait
  • Settle Calmly: While I make or eat dinner at home, Outdoor restaurants and public places
  • Impulse Control: Walk on a loose-leash, Greet people politely, Wait at the door until released, Wait in the car until asked to hop-out
  • Body Handling and Grooming: Teaching your dog what ears, paw, side, chin, muzzle mean. Stay calm while you clean their ears, brush their teeth and body, bathe them. Co-operate during a veterinary exam or a grooming appointment

Board & Train FAQ’s

Why should I send my dog for board & train or day school?

We understand life and it’s challenges — between work, school, kids, homework, family, friends, and other commitment, it’s hard to find time to learn to train your dog or change those newly developed naughty adolescent behaviors.

 

You wouldn’t hire a lawyer to learn to argue your case and neither would you hire a mechanic to learn to fix your car’s engine. Why hire a trainer to learn how to train your dog? Leave it to a certified professional to assist you in getting the dog of your dreams, while you focus on other critical things in your life.

 

Our certified, experienced trainer will spend dedicated time with your dog to get the training results for you in a fraction of the time and will provide continued help and support for stronger, lasting results.

 

Does this guarantee a well-adjusted dog for the rest of it’s life?

Ah! We’re so glad you asked this question.There cannot be any guarantee’s when it comes to behavior. Behavior issues are a result of genetics and/or a bad, traumatic, learned experience, especially if it happens during puppyhood.

 

What we can guarantee is a jumpstart to the best possible education he can get, to reach his full potential – and safe, effective and early socialization is the key to this. This means any situation you’d like your puppy to happily accept as an adult – including interacting with people, places, animals, obstacles, sounds and objects — you must introduce to him frequently and positively before he reaches four months of age.

 

Think of this like: Learning numbers in school doesn’t guarantee you will be able to solve complex mathematical problems with ease, but it sure gives you a foundation you can build on. It takes time and practice. Training is a process. It’s important to continue to build the behaviors your puppy learns.

Looking for Puppy Board & Train/Day School?

 

Yes, we specialize in that, too. It’s A unique approach to puppy raising.

 

Puppies don’t come pre-programmed with the rules of polite behavior for human society—sitting, coming when called, peeing in the right places, chewing only their own toys. They don’t come with an off switch, either—for the biting, jumping, and seemingly endless energy. Our unique, home-based puppy board & train/day school programs teach your pup the rules of modern family living. And we install that off switch, too.
