An effective combination of our in-home and board and train programs, our hybrid programs offer the best of both options. It gives us the opportunity to train your dog and develop a foundation and then to show you, in stages and steps, how to incorporate what we’ve taught your dog, into your life.

We offer various programs to fit any training goal, or behavior:

    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
  • PUPPY POWER HEAD START (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

How it works

Step One – 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.

Step Two – 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.
