Our hybrid programs are, hands down, our favorite option. It’s the best of both worlds! A combination of both our In Home and Board & Train programs. On a scale of good, better, best — this is the best option. We offer various programs to fit any training goal, or behavior.

It gives us the opportunity to train your dog, put a nice foundation on it, or “reset” the dog who has behavior issues. Once the Board & Train is done, we start the In Home Training with YOU. The first session with you is when we bring your dog back to your home with an approximate 2 hour Go Home Lesson. This allows us to show you, in stages and steps, how to incorporate what we have taught your dog, into your life — without overwhelming you with information.

The Programs:

    4-Week Board & Train + 2 Hour Go Home + 3 One-Hour Lessons
    3-Week Board & Train + 2 Hour Go Home + 5 One-Hour Lessons
    3-Week Board & Train + 2 Hour Go Home + 3 One-Hour Lessons
    (under 5 months with NO behavior issues)
    2-Week Board & Train + 2 Hour Go Home + 4 One-Hour Lessons

In these programs we address all forms of unwanted or unsafe problem behavior, including, but not limited to:

  • Dog-Dog Aggression
  • Human Aggression
  • Resource/Food Guarding
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Excessive barking, mouthing, nipping, counter surfing, jumping up
  • Leash Reactivity
  • Dogs fighting in the home
  • Extreme fear-based behaviors

What Your Dog Will Learn

(this varies based on the dog, age, behaviors, etc.)

  • Heeling on leash (eliminate pulling, barking)
  • Off Leash Obedience
  • Sit-Stay
  • Down-Stay
  • Come / Recall
  • Place
  • Out (drop it)
  • Crate training
  • Meal time etiquette
  • Doorway etiquette

Here’s how they work:

First Step – Board & Train Program

Our Board and Train program is truly unique, and unlike any other program out there! There are no kennels full of dogs sitting around waiting to train. Your dog will be one of 2 – 5 dogs living with one of our Board and Train trainers. We keep the program very small to ensure that your dog receives plenty of training, attention, play, and fun time. Just like with our in-home training, your dog will be trained in our trainer’s home and real world locations — not a sterile kennel facility like most Board and Train programs out there.

Next Step – Private Lessons

At the time of drop off, we begin with our approximate 2-hour Go Home Lesson. Now that your dog has spent a few weeks with us…it’s time for YOU to begin your training journey. This part of the program is very much about us training the humans. These programs come with the approximate 2-hour Go Home Lesson, and additional 1-hour lessons to allow us the time to train you in a step-by-step manner.
