Our hybrid program provides all the benefits of typical Board & Train professional training, without having to be separated from your dog for long periods of time. Our unique approach to training will have a combination of our Board & Train, Private Trainging as well as group Classes.
This program is well suited for dogs with behavioral problems such as reactivity, anxiety, or fear, or busy families who want their dream dog on and off leash, ensuring that you have a dog who can go anywhere with you and be integrated into your life.
We will start out with a 2 private lesson before the board and train starts. During the first lesson we will cover marker training, luring, hand feeding, follow me and place, we will also fit the e-collar. This lesson will need to be booked approx. 2 weeks prior to their stay. During the second lesson which should be 1 week before we will go over the functions of the e-collar, how it works, we will add the e-collar to follow me as well as going to place.
For a period of 6 week our hybrid program, your pup will stay at our training centre, Monday through Friday, and will receive customized, hands-on instruction by our expert staff. You will drop your dog off Monday from 8:00am- 9:30 am. (times may vary depending on holidays). At the beginning of each week, you will be sent videos of what we are working on that week which will give you a chance to view them before your dog goes home before you pick your dog up Friday evening between 3:30- 5:00pm. You will receive a short instruction or answer any questions you may have about the videos so you can practice with your dog at home over the weekend.
Having you spend the weekends with your dog at home also allows us to receive feedback from you regarding both areas of success and areas that need more attention, thereby helping us to continuously customize your dog’s training. By the end of the program, you will have a firm grasp of the skills and effort needed to ensure long-term success for you and your pup.
After your Board & Train is complete, you will have access to 12 drop in classes to help you have better success.
