Resident Board & Train

If you lead a very busy life, lack the time or patience to deal with your dog or you have a good dog and want a great dog, the comprehensive Resident Board & Train program is for you.

The program has a minimum stay of 21 days.  Most dogs finish between 21 and 30 but if more time is needed your pup stays until the standards are met.  You are paying for a standard of training not just a set number of days.  Every dog trains at a different speed and has different capabilities.  I don't penalize you or the dog for aptitude, weather or other factors which can affect the time your dog needs to improve and meet the training standards and expectations.


I can help you develop a pet who is a happy and polite member of your home that you will be proud to call YOUR dog!  My In-Home Board and Train program teaches your dog in real-world situations with other dogs inside and outside the home.  If you are interested just call me and I will answer any and all of your questions.  

As part of the training, your dog will:

Go on trips and learn to have fun without stress or confusion. 

Your dog will travel often in cars and SUVs, interact with adults, children and lots of other dogs.  

He/she will learn to behave/work in public places, inside stores (that allow dogs) and even restaurants (which allow dogs). 

Your dog lives with me and interacts with my family, my dogs and other dogs in training every day and night during their stay and will be looked after 24 hours a day, unlike a standard kennel facility.

This is a key component your dog can understand, relate and transfer after returning home.

Upon completion of the program, I then help YOU when your dog returns with follow up lessons. I also provide continued support for as long as you own your dog.
