BOARD AND TRAIN

Our board and train option is ideal for consistency during the toughest part of training. Having 24/7 access to your dog allows for multiple training sessions per day and allows for training in various settings; including inside and outside of our facility and in public.

 

At the end of the training period there will be a go home training session with you and your dog. We will give a demo of your dog’s new skills and walk through how to continue the work at home.
