We are excited to offer board and train! We use modern, effective humane training methods. We are members of the Pet Professional Guild (Marge is a charter member), the association of Force Free Professionals. Your dog will be trained by trainers certified through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
While in our care dogs and puppies live as members of the Rewarded Behavior Continues Family.They live in our “Dog House” – a 3 bedroom home that is our base of operations. Training occurs with each and every interaction. There are only one or two dogs at a time in the board and train program. During the day and evening they will have multiple training sessions and may socialize with well-mannered resident dogs between sessions. Board and train programs are individualized to suit each dog and owner’s needs. You will receive regular updates on your dog’s progress, along with videos and photos showing his progress.
Puppies in our board and train program are started on house training, socialization, and basic foundation skills. Puppies headed for potential careers in the conformation show ring, sports dog competitions, pet therapy and K9 Nose Work® will receive training related to their owner’s specific requests. Our Home Stay Board and Train program is unique in that we use dog-friendly, force free, positive reinforcement methods to train your puppy.
