House Manners

All dogs in our Board & Train program stay in luxurious accommodations in a home environment. We provide dog beds, toys, games, and a giant dog park. During their stay they will learn typical house manners and socialization with other humans and dogs.

Public Manners

All dogs enrolled in our Board & Train program will be taken on public outings to nearby parks, towns and dog friendly businesses. These field trips are a great opportunity for your dog to learn to generalize the cues they have been taught in various locations and to help them learn how to behave appropriately in public.

Doggy Daycare

While your dog is enjoying their stay they will also get the opportunity to enjoy Doggy Daycare. Doggy Daycare provides great opportunities for socialization with other dogs, as well as physical exercise and supervised play. Our Doggy Daycare also features a 1.5 acre dog park for your dog to run and play during frequent recess sessions and pack walks.

No Kennels Or Runs

All dogs in the Board & Train program enjoy a home environment and are treated like family. We utilize crates during training and encourage all dogs be crate trained for better self control and safety. Dogs may be crated if we leave for a while. We do not use kennels or runs.
