4 Week Board and Train Program

Your dog will be able to be more relaxed in the home and be more focused in public after completing our 4 week board and train program. This program covers all basic commands on and off leash and your dog will have a solid foundation for you to build upon. Just as important as teaching the dog is teaching you, the owner, to maintain the training. All the equipment we use we send home with your dog. Through private lessons while your dog is here with us, and after your dog is back home, we can ensure you are comfortable using the training tools and can maintain your dogs training.

About The Trainer:

I use a balanced training approach utilizing reward and correction to teach your dog to make correct choices. Training is about consistency, communication and repetition, and a large part of what I do is to teach you, the owner, how to maintain your dogs training once they are home. I am always available for advice and support to ensure that you and your dog both succeed with your training goals.

I got my start with formal dog training working with dogs for waterfowl hunting, and still do a great deal of field training with our personal dogs. As any hunt trainer will tell you, obedience is the foundation of everything. You can’t truly progress your dog to more advanced training if the obedience is not solid.

This obedience is the same if your dog is training to work in the field or is simply a companion and well loved pet. We use the same methods to train pet dogs of all breeds that we use to train our field dogs when they begin obedience.
