Basic Board & Train

Basic Board and Train is a 14-day program to give dogs a foundation in basic obedience such as sit, place, and loose leash walking. This program is recommended for young dogs that have no prior obedience skills or older dogs that need a refresher on their basic skills. This 2 week-long program will teach your dog basic obedience skills as well as introducing them to engagement activities and markers. Your dog will board in our facility for the entire duration of their training program. On the last day of your dog’s Board and Train Program (Days 14) you are invited to come in to learn how to maintain your dog's newly learned skills prior to pick up. Minor behavioral issues such as jumping, or overly excited, friendly greetings may be addressed.

Dog-friendly dogs will be allowed to play with our other daycare and boarding dog’s in-group play. These playgroups are a great time for your dog to socialize with other dogs in a controlled environment.

Training Method

Balanced training is a modern training method that borrows from all previously established training methods. It involves the four quadrants of learning to clearly communicate to your dog about desired behaviors and undesired behaviors. It is a highly individualized approach to training. Trainers will get to know your dog to help you both achieve your training goals. Balanced training utilizes tools such as clickers, e-collars, toys, prong collars, and food to teach your dog.

Length of Stay

Your dog will stay in our facility for 14 days.
