Making sure your pup is well trained will give both of you more time to enjoy each other’s company. There are so many reasons to take the time and make the commitment to training your dog but above all else it allows your dog a freedom and enjoyment an untrained dog simply does not have access to. Through communication we are able to create a solid foundation of basic obedience to help our dogs thrive in a variety of environments. We focus our programs on shaping a more manageable, adaptable, and happy companion; at home, the food carts, or on a hike!
Our program focuses on building a healthy human-to-pet-relationship by practicing the power of clear communication with our dogs for long-term results. Having all our dogs first go through our board and train program prior to participating in walks or hikes allows us to have a deeper understanding of each individual dog in our care and gives us the ability to seamlessly carry on with their training.

Bark Until Dark
A drop-off puppy play group to gain valuable structured socialization for pups of various ages. Puppies will be introduced to others their age and fun novel items (kiddie pool, play gym, crates, toys, and more!) all supervised to ensure safe play by experienced dog trainers and handlers. Throughout the play, puppies will practice basic commands with a focus on impulse control - something that is imperative to shaping a puppy into a well adjusted and balanced adult dog.

During our Board & Train program, your dog will stay with us in our home 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 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/or supervised socialization with other dogs.
Included is an extensive go home session with the owner and three virtual or in-home* follow-up sessions to be used for up to six months after your dog's initial stay. Your dog will also be sent home with all training tools needed and a training booklet for you!
