Dog Boarding and Training
Boarding combined with Training – Puppy Camp!
The best first step towards a well behaved dog is professional training. A dog boarding and training camp (or dog boarding school) is ideal to train basic obedience, socialization, manners, and life skills or training for dogs with behavioral problems – aggressive dogs, reactive dogs or nervous dogs.
We believe that if an unwanted behavior is not addressed, it will not get better and probably will get worse. In this immersive training and through socialization and private one-on-one sessions, we help you address any particular behavioral challenges you want to address and provide you daily communication, pictures and video for you to view the dog’s progress. We’ll help you learn techniques to successfully integrate your dog into your home as a polite member of the family for years to come.
Our trainers specialize in puppy training, where we will start teaching them to focus – how to walk on a leash and come when called, followed by basic obedience training – sit, stay, come, down, heal, etc. Manners and Life Skills training includes riding in a car, visiting pet friendly areas and socializing, both with people and other dogs.
Our behavioral training boot camp is for both puppies and adult dogs. We follow a compassionate, sensible and effective approach in our behavioral training. First step is to understand the behavior and read their body language. Then we manage the unwanted behavior using positive reinforcement.

Tour our Facility
Your dog enjoys all the perks of five-star boarding when booked in for ‘Board and Train’. 24 hour staff, clean bedding, scheduled meals and plenty of exercise in our indoor and outdoor facility.
Your dog will play several hours a day in a safe, climate-controlled, loving and supervised environment with other socialized dogs. Your dog will be grouped with others of similar size, temperament and play style.
We have a number of training options according to your dog’s specific needs, age or level of training previously completed. You can have a look at our options right here and our videos on various types of training.
The training given with Board and Train is obviously facilitated by our expert trainers and designed to assist your dog’s learning without you being present. There is still great benefit to this though, as it gives your dog manners, socialization and agility skills, without them having to necessarily bond with you.
We have a selection of Board and Train packages according to the dog’s length of stay and the amount of training you would like him or her to receive.
To safeguard the health and well being of all K9U students, you must bring copies of your dog’s Parvo, Rabies, Bordatella, and H3N2 vaccinations when you drop off your dog.
We offer supervised indoor and outdoor play with special areas for large and small dogs. You can come to us or our transportation vans will pick-up and drop-off your dog from your home each weekday.
