Force-Free Board & Train

With their own dedicated trainer, board and train is a more intensive, focused option that allows us to do the work for you while your dog builds their training skills and has a blast boarding on our 17-acre farm.

A board and train you can trust

Your dog will have a blast 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 participate in your dog’s training during his stay

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

Reactivity

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. 

$6,850

Aggression

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. 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.
