We now offer Board Training. We are not a boarding facility.
Our clients dogs live in our home so openings are very limited so all dogs get the training that is needed.
Our board training program has been very successful. All our Board Train clients receive 6 training classes 1 hour long besides your initial training the day you’re pup/dog comes home to make sure they continue their dogs training consistently. We are always available for any questions or concerns when you get your trained dog back home.
Depending on your dogs needs, training can be from a week to two weeks or longer if needed.

They will learn their obedience with and without distractions.
They will learn how to socialize with people and other dogs.
They will learn inside manners.
Please call for availability.
