A board and train you can trust
Your dog will have a blast in our Ferndale training facility or on our 17-acre property while they play, exercise, and, most importantly, learn. With hands-on training sessions and loads of enrichment each day, your dog will have the optimal learning environment to thrive as they work to meet their training goals.
About our programs:
We utilize positive reinforcement, which science tells us it is not only the most humane, but the most effective way to produce lasting results
We never use force, pain, or aversive tools or methods to modify behavior
No shock collars, prong/choke collars, or physical “corrections”
Every dog is treated as an individual, taking their preferences, ability level, and history into consideration to create a customized training plan
Multiple opportunities to visit and participate in your dog’s training during their stay
Every board and train program includes:
A meet-and-greet on the farm with your trainer prior to your dog's stay to assess their specific needs and choose the best program for them
A transfer session at the end of the program where you trainer will review everything your dog has worked on
Two private follow-up sessions to help you stay on track and maintain desired behaviors and skills
Ongoing training support should any issues arise after your dog's stay
Board and Train Programs
*Payment plans available.
In this 14-day program, puppies learn all of their basic foundation cues, such as sit, down, stay, leave it, touch, waiting patiently, leash manners, and coming when called. Along with working 1:1 with their trainer each day, puppies attend puppy social and group classes while they’re here so they can take advantage of that critical socialization window while learning to train and remain calm around people, other dogs, and while in distracting environments. This program helps set a solid training foundation that puts puppies on the path to lifelong success.
*For puppies 8 weeks-6 months. Takes place in our Ferndale training facility*
Basic Skills and Confidence Building
This 14-day program is designed to meet your basic training and obedience goals. Skills may include basic cues (like ‘sit’ and ‘stay’), coming when called, walking on a loose leash, or house manners.

Please note that this program is not sufficient for meeting reactivity and aggression goals.
This 28-day program is designed for dogs who are reactive (bark, lunge, growl) towards other dogs or people while on leash, when visitors come to your home, or when behind a barrier (such as a fence). Your trainer will use classical and operant conditioning to change your dog’s emotional response to triggers. Your dog will work with a Certified Professional Dog Trainer for four sessions per day, plus enjoy a variety of enrichment and exercise activities on our 17-acre property. Please note that this program is for dogs without a bite history or with only defensive bites (bite and retreat, did not chase or follow after target); dogs with a more severe bite history will require the aggression program.
This 42-day program is designed for dogs who show active aggression (going after the target, unable to calm down, snapping, bites that leave one or more puncture wound) towards other dogs or people.
