If you’d like to have us evaluate your dog to give advice on the best training path for them or if you’re interested in a board and train, an evaluation is right for you. No training is involved, we just come to assess the dog and the situation.
traditional board & train
In our traditional board and train we pick up your pup and take them home with us, where we focus on 3 top issues you would like resolved. Depending on the issues, these board and trains usually range 1-3 weeks. Some common focus areas for the traditional board and train are basic obedience (Sit, Down, Stay and Come on leash), loose leash walking, no jumping or biting, house training, drop and leave it, and Go Place. Upon drop off we do an hour transition lesson where everyone in the family performs the same commands with their dog that we do. Also included is an hour long followup lesson a week later to make sure the training sticks. Tools are not included in the cost. An evaluation is required prior to the board and train if we have never met your dog.
