We are looking for owners who are 100% dedicated to putting in the required work to continue the dogs success once the dog goes home. Someone who will be willing to make the necessary lifestyle adjustments and are completely comfortable with the tools we use. Your dog will have a much more relaxed state of mind, a new lifestyle and will have improved obedience and manners.
Our programs include many factors that aid in achieving the best results at home from daily practice, health and age of the dog, along with learning our different methods of training. It is very important for dogs with multiple owners to agree to stick to the rules and boundaries and training techniques set at training. Unfortunately we do not go home with you after our Board and Train Programs; therefore we are unable to make any guarantees or refunds under any circumstances.

12 weeks is the minimum age.
A lot of rules! We provide you with a 30 day program and many informational and detailed handouts on how to proceed with living with your dog successfully.
