Board & Train

Let a skilled and knowledgeable professional do some of the work for you.

The Board and Train Program gets faster training results with a knowledgeable and professional dog trainer.
In addition to lessons your dog receives each day, your dog will be fully immersed in my home life which means the learning is always happening.

The Board and Train Program is great for adult dogs displaying unwanted behaviors or for puppies needing obedience training and the all important ‘exposure’ training before 16 weeks of age; something I specialize in.

Board & Train stays range from 2wks up to 4 wks. Length of the program is determined during a phone call or in person consultation which is necessary for more serious behavior issues.
‘Out of towners’ welcome. Follow up lessons/coaching via Skype.


Each Board & Train Program includes:
  • A proactive, ‘do no harm’ training approach regardless of your dog’s behavior issues
    *See my Training Philosophy for more information.
  • In home stay (no outdoor kennels)
  • Training lessons each day and immersion training in my home (your dog will be a part of my household)
  • Hikes/walks  (weather dependent)
  • Emailed video clips of training lessons
  • Emailed training/theory handouts
  • 2-75 minute lessons: 1 lesson upon completion of the Board and Train Program and 1 lesson within 2 weeks after completion
