During our Board & Train program, your dog will stay with us at the Rascal Ranch for a complete training immersion. This allows us to work intimately with your dog, teaching them structure, boundaries, and developing a solid communication system. We use every interaction with your dog as a training opportunity. Each program is tailored to fit the needs and training goals of each individual dog/owner pair. Each day your dog will have multiple training sessions as well as pack-walks, off-leash adventures, frozen peanut-butter KONGs, field-trips to local dog-friendly businesses, and supervised socialization with other dogs.
Included in each program:
- Board and Train Prep Booklet
- Extensive go home session with the owner(s)
- Three virtual or in-person follow up sessions
- Email support for life
- Most training tools needed at home
- 5-7 Updates a week posted on our Instagram
- 30+ Page Go Home Book + Reference Guide complete with how-to videos for continued success at home
This length of program gives us the time to develop a very strong relationship with your dog and give them all the tools to succeed when dealing with more intense or heavily practiced behaviors.
Addressing: severe leash reactivity, severe general anxiety, stranger danger, fear of new environments, social issues with other animals, separation anxiety, destructive behavior, etc
Some dogs need more time to learn, if we think your dog could benefit from an additional week or two with us we will let you know as soon as possible.

What Clients Say
Let me get this out the way right now. SEND YOUR DOG HERE. If you are even considering a board and train, do it.
We sent our big oaf of a GSD rescue (Shadow) to Rascal after a ton of research and it was the right choice. My partner and I live in Montavilla and wanted to be able to bring our dog everywhere we could. Unfortunately, she was an 85 pound asshole that couldn't walk on a leash and spent her life being anxious and obsessive. She also couldn't hang with our cats and would waste her days staring down the hall at them - nothing could tear her away.
Looking through the Rascal website and instagram I knew that Zoe was the right person. As Shadow progressed through the program she was able to go on a ton of field trips. This aspect was very important to me, knowing that Shadow would have exposure to public places (home improvement stores, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, etc.) with someone who can make sure the experience is positive.
Shadow has only been home a few days, but it's been amazing. She can go for walks now without giving us blisters on our palms by pulling. She is able to lay down in the front yard with me while there are crows and squirrels around. SHE HEARS ME WHEN I CALL HER.
The hardest part of the whole thing has been my own training, but even that is easier every day.
Seriously, Rascal Training is worth it a thousand times over.
