The program that has been designed is unlike no other. From the moment the dog steps foot into the facility, everything changes. We begin a bond with your dog, which will last a lifetime as well as start a new beginning of learning and understanding what will be expected of them from here forward. We begin by removing the bad habits, building confidence, and educating the dog on what is expected of them. We hold the dogs accountable for their actions; this is the key to our success.

Basic Board and Train

Length: 2 Weeks

Cost: $2800

This is our most popular program for the everyday family dog. This 10-14 day Board and Train focuses on the foundation of basic obedience. Your dog will learn foundational obedience on leash focusing on the following commands: sit, down, place, heel, and recall. You’ll no longer have to ask your dog several times to do a simple task, this will be instilled in your dog over hundreds of reps while here for training.  The majority of the time we see behavioral issues is when the dog does not know these basic commands, therefore owners are not able to redirect the problem behavior, instead, it just leads to frustration. We take the frustration out by making sure the dog has a very clear understanding of what is being asked, therefore the frustration is removed by an obedient dog willing to do the task at hand. Once your dog has finished this board and train program you will have complete control of your dog no matter the situation or environment you’re in.
