Focus On A Happy Lifestyle

Board & Train Dog Programs

Changing a dog's behaviour does not happen overnight and you need to consider that environment plays an important role. Having 24 hr access to your animal while training him/her in different environments is a must.

It Takes Time

Our Main Programs

Every dog that goes through one of our programs is trained in different environments. This helps ensure that behaviour is properly established instead of just seen as a way to behave when with us. Depending on the length of program you choose, expect a minimum of 7 field trips for your dog to learn proper behaviour across different environments. Further, as part of our board & train programs, your dog will be socialized with other dogs - an especially important aspect when considering socialization skills.

Every Dog Is Different

What You Can Expect

Different Dogs require different approaches to training. Perhaps you are just looking for the "bare bones" and want your dog to be able to sit and walk properly on a leash. Maybe you are scared, while walking down the street, that your animal will lash out and hurt someone. Both scenarios are valid and both require a different approach to behaviour modification. Understanding different scenarios and how you want your dog to develop is an important first step in deciding the type of training needed.

Obedience Training

Dogs must have routine and structure in their lives. The lack of this structure contributes to stress and anxiety, as it does for people.

Behaviour Rehabilitation

Working with issues such as anxiety, fear-based behaviour, nervousness, etc. takes a great deal of time. It is important to us that we are able to lay a solid foundation and communication system with your dog before addressing behavioural issues.
