Our puppy board & train course is designed to take the job of training your dog out of your hands and lets your dog learn full time with our trainers. The program is offered for dogs between 12 weeks and 12 months in age. We go beyond traditional puppy classes in that we offer a lot more than just obedience training. We build a solid foundation, build confidence and develop puppies manners, attention/focus and basic communication. Through proper structure and maintenance we remove any undesirable behaviors and replace them with positive behaviors.

Your puppy will live 24/7 with us, as like one of our dogs at our home. This provides your dog with the structure of home environment. Here he/she will learn to be part of the family and learn life long obedience as well as canine manners and etiquette.

This Puppy Training Program includes total immersion in a lifestyle of learning, structure, routine, socialization, walks, public outings and supervised puppy play. Your puppy will develop a state-of-mind that makes for a simple transition into his permanent home where it is easy for you to continue his learning. This program teaches a puppy that learning if fun and rewarding giving you the happy, well mannered, balanced puppy of your dreams. Proper socialization and building confidence is the most important training a puppy can receive in the early stages of life as it has a limited, optimum window of time to be most effective and plays a major role in the foundation throughout the puppy’s life. The lack of this component is one of the top reasons why so many dogs are in rescues/shelters.
