Dog Boarding and Training
Boarding Combined with Training – Boot Camp for Dogs!
The best first step towards a well-behaved dog is professional training. A personalized dog boarding and training bootcamp (a.k.a., boot camp for dogs, dog boarding school, or dog obedience boarding school) is ideal to train basic obedience, socialization, manners, and life skills. It is also well suited for training 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.
Special packages available for daily training with boarding
- Up to 4 weeks of overnight stays with all boarding perks
- Progress updates by phone
- 1 private lesson
- 1 free departure bath
