STAY POSITIVE BOARD & TRAIN PROGRAMS
"Wanted to share what a game changer Blue's board and train has been. It's so amazing to be able to walk him without him dragging us behind him, and without him going insane reacting to every single thing we pass. He's also been easier to calm down inside after hearing or seeing something outside. Also did you teach him fetch? Before his time with you he wouldn't ever drop the ball to be able to throw it for him. Now he does and it's so much more fun!"

PUPPY FOUNDATIONS BOARD & TRAIN
Board & train for puppies 3 to 5 months old
Puppies are a lot of work, we get it! We can take some of the burden off of you and make sure your puppy gets a solid foundation in obedience and life skills. During our puppy board & train program, we make sure your puppy is comfortable in their crate, potty training is progressing appropriately, and your puppy is getting positive social experiences while learning name recognition, leash walking skills, sit, down, stay, place, leave it, drop it, come when called, and cooperative handling.
We train using positive reinforcement methods and do not use any punishment or corrective collars. You can be assured that your puppy is having a great experience with training while they are in our care, and will come home with a foundation that you can build upon as they mature into a well-mannered dog.
Puppies will need to complete their vaccinations prior to attending.
Two weeks of board & train: Your puppy will be in our home and a part of the family during their stay.
Photo updates of your puppy during their stay.
Two private follow up sessions after your puppy returns home (virtual if you are outside of our travel area).
Videos of your puppy's training progress.
Cues list for you to practice.

FAMILY MANNERS BOARD & TRAIN
Obedience skills for dogs over 5 months
Family Manners is a skills-oriented program aimed at teaching your dog obedience applicable to everyday pet life. Your dog will go on "field trips" during this program to Denton Square and other pet-friendly locations to practice.
This program covers these foundation skills: sit, down, stay, come, drop it, leave it, place/targeting, and leash walking. We address issues such as excited jumping, door dashing, and leash pulling during this program and customize the program to your individual dog.
At the end of this program your dog will have a solid foundation of positive-trained obedience and life skills that you can continue reinforcing using treats and/or toy rewards. You'll also understand how to manage and change unwanted behavior with confidence.
Dogs need current vaccinations, including kennel cough, to attend this program and must be crate trained.
* For safety and liability reasons, as well as to abide by local leash laws, we do not train "off-leash". We always use a long line for safety when training in unfenced locations.
Three weeks of board & train: Your dog will be in our home and a part of the family during their stay; we do not have outdoor kennels.
Photo updates of your dog during their stay
Three private follow up sessions after your dog returns home (virtual if you are outside of our travel area)

LEASH REACTIVITY HYBRID PROGRAM
Board & train/ private session combo for dogs with dog-directed leash reactivity
Leash reactivity towards other dogs is a very common issue experienced by dog owners. It is frustrating and embarrassing for your dog to bark and lunge at other dogs or people; whether it be out of excitement, fear, frustration, or aggression. There is no magic wand to make leash reactivity just go away, but there are some amazing techniques I can teach you and your dog to manage, reduce, and prevent this behavior.
When it comes to leash reactivity, I can't get away with just training your dog. I could get your dog to the point of not reacting around other dogs when I handle them, but there is so much I need to also teach YOU so you can continue to be successful! That's why this program is a combination of board & train for your dog, and private lessons for you.
*This program is for dogs with dog-directed reactivity. Human directed reactivity is not suitable for board & train; talk to us about our in-home reactivity program!
Three weeks of board & train focused on getting your dog the practice they need in various setups around other dogs
Six private sessions with you and your dog together, either twice a week for 3 weeks or 3 times a week for two weeks
Photo updates and training videos while your dog is boarding
Invitation to schedule decoy set-ups for continued practice once you complete the program
