A board and train might be right for you if . . .

  • You're wanting my time, expertise, and experience to train your dog's foundation

  • You're seeking to prevent and address unwanted behaviors

  • You're looking to fast-track your training results

Why a board and train?

A board and train service offers the greatest quality control for your dog's training journey. With a board and train, I have complete control to install a rock-solid foundation utilizing my expertise and experience. While all of my services can effectively train your dog, the board and train option stands out as the fastest and most reliable approach to achieve your desired training outcomes. It provides a comprehensive and efficient training experience, ensuring exceptional results for you and your beloved canine companion.

What exactly is a board and train and how does it work?

During a board and train program, your dog will stay at my facility for two to four weeks, depending on your dog's specific needs. When you arrive to pick up your dog, I'll take you through go-home lesson lasting approximately 2-3 hours. This session allows us to review and demonstrate the training that your dog has received during their stay.


To ensure a seamless transition of the training to your home environment, we also schedule a 60-minute follow-up session, which is included in the board and train price. This session provides an opportunity for us to address any questions or concerns you may have and fine-tune the training techniques as needed. Our goal is to ensure that your dog's training journey continues successfully in your home, building upon the progress achieved during their time in the board and train program.

How many dogs do you take at any one time?

To ensure the utmost quality and attention, I have limited availability, accepting only two dogs per month for board and train services. This exclusive focus allows me to dedicate my time and undivided attention to training your dog personally. By maintaining a one-on-one approach, I can provide consistent and high-quality training that is tailored to your dog's specific needs. Your dog's progress and well-being are my top priorities, and this personalized attention guarantees exceptional results.
