Private Training

The private training package has two options. With the first option the trainer will come to your home to work one on one with you and your dog. This allows you to learn how to work effectively with your dog in the comfort, privacy, and familiar surroundings of your home and immediate neighborhood. The second option requires you traveling to another location for training. You will receive the same quality one on one training, but at a reduced price. Private Training covers basic obedience and problem behaviors.

Board and Train

Also called “canine boot camp” by some trainers, Board and Train is my most popular training program. Board and Train allows your dog to “live and breathe” the world of dog training. This in-depth educational opportunity involves your dog staying at the trainer’s home for one month (30 days) and allows for multiple daily training sessions. This is a customized dog training program covering anything from crate training puppies, basic obedience, socialization, as well as problem behaviors such as aggression, fearfulness, anxiety, off leash training, and more. Two lessons, one the day your dog goes home and one schedule up to two weeks later, are included at the conclusion of the program to teach the owner how to maintain the training. Price: $3500.00

There are three main categories for dogs accepted into Board and Train:

1) Foundation Training – The foundation training program is for puppies (8 weeks to 6 months), and is formulated to start your puppy off right. We teach your puppy to “learn how to learn”. Some foundation behaviors include:

Mini Board and Train

The mini board and train program is for those wishing to focus on a limited number of behaviors in a condensed two week program. This is an on leash, basic obedience course that includes two weeks of board and train plus one follow up lesson. Examples of behaviors that can be worked on are listed above in the Board and Train section. Behavior Modification can also be done during the Mini Board and Train.

The price for MBT is $2500.00. If reservations allow, Mini Board and Train can be turned into a full 30 days of Board and Train for an additional $1000.00.

Board and Brush-Up

The Board and Brush-Up option is for previous clients who are looking for somewhere to board their dog for a short period of time (3-7 days) while their owners are on vacation. While staying on the Board and Brush-Up program, dogs will receive brush-up sessions on the training they have already received. To address new training needs or behavioral issues, please look into the Board and Train programs. $75.00/day.


Short and long term boarding is available. Cost starts at $55.00/day for 1 dog, with discounts for multiple dogs and longer stays.  Please inquire for more information and availability. Boarding includes daily exercise/play sessions, but does not include any training.  No contact boarding is also available upon request.
