Get Me Started Today!

Zeke had a history of barking and lunging with intent to do harm to other people and especially other dogs.  After many weeks of training, we took him on a trip to a local pet friendly store during a vaccination clinic.  So proud of how this guy did!

Wally has a bite history on people and was particular about how and when he'd let people touch him.  Sometimes he was fine, other times very aggressive.  Here we're working on having him get more comfortable being handled.

Our Foundation and Freedom Dog Board & Train Programs

Each of our other programs, Foundation and Freedom Dog, have their own board & train programs. Click on the links before to learn more about them.  We are looking forward to seeing the transformation of your dog!

Foundation Board & Train 

The Foundation Board & Train (B&T) is a 21 day board and train in our home with three private lessons to teach you your dog’s training.  The Foundation program is focused on behavioral training and loose leash walking and is for puppies and dogs of all ages. This program is designed to teach relaxation, and create a balanced, healthy, well-behaved dog.  We address the underlying issues of excitability, hyperactivity and other mild behaviors issues.  Dogs with reactivity, aggression and intense anxiety are not eligible for this program.

For puppies, we'll get them "started off on the right foot" before undesired behaviors become habit.  Dogs thrive on routine, and training is never a one-time event...it's a lifestyle!  Our Foundation program begins that lifestyle!

Freedom Dog Board & Train

Our Freedom Dog Board & Train is a 5 week board and train in our home with five private lessons to teach you your dog's training.  We begin with the skills taught in the Foundation program [relaxation, manners, loose leash walking, and creating a well behaved dog] and expand them.

The most popular thing do in the Freedom Dog board & train dog to further a dog's training is an off leash recall.  Imagine a dog that comes back to you right away and a dog you can have off leash with confidence on a walk or hike or at the beach!

Our Freedom Dog Board & Train is also great for dogs with mild to moderate anxiety, reactivity or aggression (a Training Evaluation will determine if this program or the Dream Dog Program is better for your dog with behavioral issues). These dogs need more help to be successful. We spend more time helping the dog and doing additional training techniques to assist these dogs overcome their challenges.
