Our Board and Train Programs are a collection of services that shift the primary training of one of our trainers to relieve some of the training burden from the owner. Dogs in the program receive multiple daily training sessions and socialization activities with our trainers.  All of the programs have a component of human training included to transfer the work and training we do with the dog to you, the owner, to set you up for success once your dog returns home.  It is critical for success that the owner understand and implement the husbandry, handling, commands and environmental changes to help their dog succeed and flourish with their training.

TRADITIONAL board AND TRAIN

With our Board and Train Program your dog stays with us for a duration of time to receive multiple daily training sessions. These sessions cover the basic commands, manners and socialization.  Owners will receive multiple one-on-one training sessions to teach you the skills to implement in your home. We offer the following programs:
2 week Basic Obedience and Manners to learn the basic, foundational skills and be a well mannered member of your family.
3+ week Behavior Modification for dogs needing a little more help beyond basic obedience. This is helpful when they are exhibiting behavioral issues, such as separation anxiety, reactivity, and aggressive tendencies.

day training

Need a little extra help with a training concept but afraid you would miss your dog overnight? Our Day Training program allows owners to drop their dog off in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. Their dog will receive focused training or troubleshooting of any skills that need to be refreshed. When you pickup your dog, we spend time with the owner reviewing the day’s training.

STRUCTURED SOCIALIZATION

Our socialization day program allows dogs to play with structure to encourage appropriate play and behaviors. In short, these sessions balance play time with confidence building and obedience exercises. This encourages the dog to co-exist around dogs and people without becoming overstimulated, which can be the precursor to naughty behaviors.

Just need a little touch up while you are away? We offer an add-on daily training option for clients dogs who are boarding with us for less than a week.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY…

“My dog, George, boarded for basic obedience and manners and I cannot explain how much of a difference it made. His confidence is on a different level now. I am so happy to have found Woof in the Woods!”
