NEW SERVICE for 2019:
Board and Train Puppy Program
What is Board and Train?
Our board and train service is in-home, meaning your dog will not be at a kennel. Instead, your dog lives with the trainer full-time for a minimum of two weeks for basic obedience and training and a minimum of four weeks for severe behaviour such as fear and aggression. During their stay with us, your dog becomes part of the family, learning the basics of indoor living such as not surfing counters, house training and respecting invisible boundaries. In this way, the dog can be taught basic manners, behavior modification and put on an exercise program with daily walks, playtime in a fenced area and socialization with other dogs. Included with your dogs stay is one 90 minute session with the trainer per week your dog is with us so that you and your family can continue the training in your home and day-to-day. We will meet you and your family for a consultation prior to the stay to discuss concerns, behavioural history and realistic expectations.
Required to participate:
• Proof of Vaccinations(Rabies, DHLPP, kennel cough, flea, tick and heartworm preventive)
• Kennel cough needs to be given in advance before boarding
• Boarded dogs must have leash, collar and appropriate tags
• Owner must provide food to prevent digestive stress
• Medications given and frequency
• Feeding directions
• Signed contract and agreement
Cost: $800.00 per week
What’s included?
• Preliminary consultation
• Minimum two-weeks stay with loving trainer and her family. *Four-week minimum is required for aggression, leash reactivity and fear cases.
• A 90-minute private session per week of stay conducted in your home or familiar environment to transfer behaviours and ensure behavioural maintenance and consistency after the stay.
Why Board and Train?
A good portion of the training is done for you.
• Dog is placed with the trainer who has the time to train your dog.
* A possible solution when you go on vacation
• Dog gets a fear-free stay, loving care and attention in a home environment and gets to learn something new. Boarding and Training all-in-one!
• Dog is open to learning
• As they are in a new environment, they may be open to learning new habits. Dogs often have a history of rehearsing and repeating behaviours with a certain person or in a certain place, a board and train program allows the dog a clean slate to start from.
• Follow-up Sessions
• To ensure you are confident to maintain and be consistent with the new behaviours
Please note: As with ANY training program, the results vary for each dog and long-term satisfaction is hugely dependant on consistency from the family and behavioural maintenance when the dog returns to their home. Follow-up sessions are included to ensure you feel confident to move forward in your training and life.
