Board & Train

A board & train is a great option for people with limited time or someone looking to get a jump start on their training! Your dog will come and stay with us in our home and go through a comprehensive training program. During the board & train, we focus on creating a solid foundation of obedience, impulse control, boundaries, and manners. We stress the importance of creating a dog that can be calm and relaxed in the home. 

We limit our board & trains to just 2-3 dogs at a time so we can make sure your dog gets the individualized attention they deserve! Your dog will stay in our dog bedroom that is monitored by the trainers on two live feed cameras. We play RelaxMyDog soundtrack in our dog room to help create a calm and quiet environment for the dogs when they are resting. If your dog is traveling with us, they ride in a Ruffland Kennel inside a temperature controlled and monitored SUV.  We also have an interior and exterior dash cam! We do everything to provide safety and comfort for your dog.

Foundation Program: 
This program is designed for puppies and dogs that need help with basic obedience, manners, and overall good dog skills. Your dog will be with us for a minimum of 2 weeks (additional weeks can be added). During their time with us we will first focus on the foundational training of engagement, household manners, and boundaries. Once we feel your dog has a good grasp of the basics, we begin taking them on field trips. A field trip could be a trip to Lowe's or a pet store, meeting with other trainers at parks, or going on a hike. These field trips are critical to testing and proofing your dogs training out in the real world! This program is not for dogs with any behavior issues, reactivity or aggression.
