Board & Train Behavior Intervention Programs

 

Our board and train program brings your dog into our home and pack where they are immersed in a consistent and fulfilling routine 24/7. Through that structured routine we create a balanced and calm environment where your dog can thrive and learn what is expected of them in our house and outside in the real world.

While your dog is with us we introduce the training, structure and obedience that will help you more easily navigate life together. In addition to nice leash walking manners, your dog will learn a precise communication system, and to: sit/stay, down/stay, place, and come when called. We will also help you with common behavioral issues such as jumping up, nipping, counter surfing or any other issues you need our help with. We specialize in e-collar/remote collar training, and proper introduction and use of this tool is covered in the 2 & 3 week programs.

For dogs experiencing light emotional & behavior issues and who already have an adequate foundation in obedience, our one-week program can be customized and may suffice. Details will be discussed during the initial consultation.

What to Expect:

  • Valet service to and from our location is South Hadley, MA

  • Video and photo updates

  • A thorough training session with you and your dog at the end of the program to go over training and show you how to reinforce it

  • Clear homework instructions designed specifically for you and your dog to practice at home

  • Access to us via phone/text/email/zoom to help troubleshoot any issues you’re having before or after the program

  • Free hands-on follow-ups or touch-ups for 6 months after program completion

 

Please Note: Severe aggression and reactivity issues require a minimum commitment to one of our multi-week programs.

Day School Behavior Intervention Programs

Imagine the benefits of having your dog do a board & train program, without having to say goodbye for an extended period of time. This is our day school program and under this option I will come to you and train your dog at your home and in your neighborhood/area with your pup coming home each day and staying in familiar environs. This may be a better option for fearful dogs or for those pet parents who prefer to have their friends at home with them each night.

This program will teach the same behaviors and achieve the same results as in our board and train programs including the training, structure and obedience that will help you more easily navigate life together. In addition to nice leash walking manners, your dog will learn to: sit/stay, down/stay, place, and to come when called. We will also help you with common behavioral issues such as jumping up, nipping, counter surfing or any other issues you need our help with. We specialize in e-collar/remote collar training, and proper introduction and use of this tool is covered in the 2 & 3 week programs.

What to Expect:
