In Kennel Training

The most popular and effective way to get your dog trained is through our Board & Train program. This is the ideal solution for the busy owner as we do most of the hard work for you! In today’s world, many dog owners can’t find the time for themselves and their human family, let alone their beloved pooch! So, let our Certified Professional Trainers take over the load and teach your dog how to become a wonderfully well-behaved companion. By having your dog professionally trained, you are helping to ensure a rich and rewarding relationship with your dog for the future.

While your dog is with us, he or she will learn the following commands:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Wait at doors or gates (Deluxe & Premier Packages)
  • Heel with Auto Sit
  • Sit-Stay
  • Down-Stay
  • Recall or Come
  • Place or Settle(Deluxe & Premier Packages)
  • Distance & Heavy Distractions (Deluxe & Premier Packages)
  • Leave It (Premier Package)
  • Watch (Premier Package)
  • Drop It (Premier Package)
  • Problem Behaviors: Digging, Chewing, Playful Biting, Barking Excessively, Counter Surfing,  Stealing Objects, Jumping on people, Jumping on furniture….and more!

Once your dog has been fully obedience trained by us, we will then train you! You will receive a 60 minute “handover” lesson on the day that you pick up your dog.  Remember, it is always so much easier to work with a trained dog!

Depending on which comprehensive package you choose, you are also entitled to one-on-one lessons at our campus with one of our qualfied instructors, or have a follow up lesson conducted in your own home.  We can also spend these lessons working on wait, place, digging, chewing, house breaking, counter surfing, trash digging, running away, jumping on the sliding glass door, barking and any management issues that you may have.  This also provides you with the perfect opportunity to work with your dog around even more distractions or offers you an excellent way to refresh your dog’s training later on in the future.

Facing the COVID-19 Challenges Together

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has created a number of challenges for all of our families, both personally and professionally. Our first priority is to keep you, your family, and your pets safe and healthy during this public health concern.

We are writing to reassure you that we are available to continue to care for your pet's needs while we take the necessary steps to keep you, our staff and associates in a safe environment.

As we know, hand washing hygiene is an important protocol that we continue to implement for all staff and clients. We provide options for hand cleaning and hand sanitizers for clients and associates, and we work closely with our teams to ensure that anyone who is not feeling well understands that we support them staying home.
