Board and Train Programs

The benefit of a board and train is that your dog learns faster and more efficiently by working one on one with a professional trainer.  By the time you begin your lesson on how to maintain Fido's new skills the dog already has a much clearer understanding of what is expected of him/her.  This immersion program is perfect for anyone who wants to come back from vacation, a business trip or a few days away to be reunited with a happier, healthier, and much better behaved pet.  These programs include all supplies, boarding fees and follow-up lessons.  All packages are tailored to meet the needs of you and your dog.

Your dog can learn these trained manners & obedience skills:

• Loose lead walking   • No jumping up   • Sit/Wait
• Eliminate play biting/mouthing   • Down/Wait   • Place
• Off leash recall(come)   • Quiet on command
• Wait at the door

We offer:

First, we start with a (free) consultation so we can evaluate if you and your dog are ready to begin the Therapy Dog Program or if more basic training is needed. Those that need more basic training will be referred to have lessons with Angie or Sarah. Those dogs that exhibit basic obedience skills will be able to set up a schedule for both one-on-one training and group classes. Each one-on-one session will be tailored specifically for your dog's needs.

Goal: To provide specific dog training to clients who are interested in getting into the rewarding field of volunteering with their dogs as a way to provide comfort and animal-assisted therapy in many different facilities. End goal will be that each team will be prepared to pass their Pet Partner evaluation.

During your program you will be given the opportunity to attend free group field trips which will include visiting Lowe's, PetCo, PetSmart, and one medical facility before final testing.

Taking the Pet Partners Evaluation (Step 3)
Speak with Leslie for details on the evaluation process.
