Dog Board & Training Focusing On Obedience in New England

Puts your dog’s obedience in the express lane under the care of our abled and qualified pet trainers.

Each board and training program is customized for the individual dog. During our board and train programs, your dog is glued to their assigned trainer. Dogs live with and train with the trainer 24/7 for a set amount of training days based on the board and train selected. During training, trainers will send you daily progress reports and numerous photos so you can follow along and always stay in the loop on how your dog is doing.

board & train Packages / pricing

Two, Three, and Four-Week Off-leash Board and Train Packages (5 months and over)

We focus on – leash obedience, place work, off-leash recall, and cover all aspects of livability, control, and environmental neutrality. Often behavioral issues all come down to confusion and the dog having no idea what the desired behavior is. Teaching the dog impulse control and self-capping drive and teaching the dog how to communicate is critical for long-term success.

Our 3-week world-famous dog training board and train program focus on obedience both on-leash and off-leash, from inside the home to higher distraction areas, such as parks, department stores, beaches, etc. Our Dog trainers focus on real-world dog obedience at all times.

We will give your dog a 100% reliable recall regardless of the environmental distractions. While obedience behavior and tricks are fun, what sets us apart from other trainers is our focus on house manners and everyday lifestyle. Remember that your dog will spend most of its time with you at home. Therefore, we want to make your overall experience with your dog more enjoyable.

We are balanced trainers and utilize all four quadrants of operant conditioning as needed by each individual dog. We start our training in our home, in a very low distraction setting, so that we can build a bond and earn your dog’s trust. After your dog has learned all the commands, we will work on duration, distance and distraction.

From then on we will proof your dog’s training in high distraction settings in order to set them up for success in the real world! This program includes a prong collar and an E collar (Garmin, educator technologies or sport dog). Dogs are conditioned and trained with these tools.

The difference is in duration; 3 & 4 week programs allow for more environmental exposure, environmental conditioning, environmental neutrality, and overall confidence and impulse control. All programs work magic – but “more” training is simply better results!

*The price includes all training, care, transportation, training equipment, and lifetime support for you and the dog.
