Day-N-Train

Our most popular training option. While your dog stays with us for a day of daycare, they will receive a 45 minute private training session with one of our experienced dog trainers. Day-N-Training (DNT) is a very flexible training service. DNT sessions can be tailored to address specific behavioral issues, can be used as a comprehensive training experience, or anything in between.

Day-N-Train Requirements
In order to enroll your dog in our Day-N-Train program, they must first complete their trial day of daycare, you must complete our online Day-N-Train enrollment form, and complete a consultation with the training director. Most of the time, consultations can be completed via phone or email. In some circumstances, it may be necessary to complete in an in-person consultation before we begin Day-N-Train sessions with your dog. (An assessment fee may apply for in-person consultations)

Board-N-Train

Board-N-Train is a 20 day comprehensive training program consisting of five days of boarding with daily training sessions each week and two days a week off. Typically, participants have their dog stay with us Monday through Friday and take them home Saturday and Sunday each week. Although these days can be customized to meet your specific needs. Families enrolled in this option will also receive 2 half hour private sessions with their pup and our trainer.  This allows for some hands-on practice in order to help solidify the relationship between the dog and owner team. Results are guaranteed* so long as owners do their part in follow-up practice!

Board-N-Train Plus (BNT+)

BNT+ is similar to our Board-N-Train program, but includes a full 30 days of boarding and training with no “off days” during the week to go home. Participants are offered 2 half hour private sessions. This allows for some hands-on practice in order to help solidify the relationship between the dog and owner team. Results are guaranteed* so long as owners do their part in follow-up practice!

Private Lessons

We offer private 30 minute lessons with dog and owner. These sessions are scheduled by appointment and can be used to address a wide variety of topics. Please contact our training director to arrange a consultation and schedule private sessions.

It is designed to be taken in 3 stages (Level 1 - Basic, Level 2 - Intermediate, and Level 3 - Advanced) with each level of class focusing on owner and dog teams mastering basic training commands to the best of their ability.
