Board and Train

A Professional Board And Train Program You Can Trust

The two week, overnight Board and Train is our most popular service. Unlike the harsh kennel setting, this is a uniquely customized program where your dog will receive training while living with our trainer in a true home based environment. Board and Train can be the best option for many families, since we do all the work to get your furry companion fully trained up. Think of it as dog training in a personal home so your pet can reach its full potential.  Our positive reinforcement methods create a stress-free environment for both you and your pup, and we’ll work together to improve behavior and strengthen the bond between you.

Positive Reinforcement Based Dog Obedience

In addition to teaching commands, these programs can also help to address problem behaviors, such as barking, jumping, and leash pulling.

Your dog will learn basic obedience commands, such as sit, stay, come, and down. The more advanced training covers your dog to become an off leash k9. In addition to teaching commands, board and train programs can also help to address problem behaviors, such as barking, jumping, and leash pulling. We work with all types of problems.

What To Expect When You Board Your Dog With Us

During the time your dog spends with our trainer, he/she will have multiple training sessions a day. Every board and train client receives a personalized video demonstrating what their dog has learned at the end of the program.

We are the only positive reinforcement company offering board and train in a home environment in the Florida Panhandle.

You will receive detailed information on what your dog has learned and what homework you have to work on with your dog. A follow-up session in your home will be done to assess how you are doing and provide feedback and training.  You will have support not just during training but for the rest of your dog’s life.  We have many clients that are senior dogs now and we still talk to their humans about how they are doing and are always willing to answer any questions.

How Exactly Does This Canine Boarding Program Work?

We have programs ranging from 1 week to 4 weeks. Our most requested program is the 2 week program. In this program we will work on polite manners with other dogs, boundaries with dogs and people, how to handle over excitement, all basic obedience: Stay, Down, Leave it, Place, Come, Nose Touch, Leash Walking and incorporate distractions like walking past dogs, kids playing, coming when called from far away. While they are with me, we will continuously work on polite house skills – appropriate chewing, puppy mouthing, settling in the home and general good behavior. We train 3-5 sessions a day of about 20 minutes long. Your pup will stay at my home. We have two full time trainers and two training assistants that work with, play with and care for the dogs. Our whole day is all about the dogs. Our Board and Train program is dog training & human training. At the end of your pups training you will receive a video so you can see all that they have learned as well as homework that gives step by step instructions of what we worked on and how we want you to continue. We also offer an in-home follow up session!

Our Policy

We usually book 2-3 weeks out. The way our payment process works is we ask for a $200 non refundable deposit to hold your training space (We only accept 2-3 dogs in our program at a time). Payments are made in 2 parts. 1/2 at drop off and 1/2 at pick up. When you bring your dog for training we ask that you bring a copy of vaccination records, food and a blanket that smells like home. All aggression or reactivity cases will require a strict behavior modification program. For this program, there is a minimum of a two week Board & Train. ​ Our 3 & 4 week program includes off leash obedience, behavior modification or working in new places
