Aggressive Dogs start at $3500
Your dog will learn life long skills that will permeate all aspects of your life. Due to the nature of some deep seated behaviors, board and train programs provide the structure and repetition that are necessary to change your dog. It is also the most fair approach, because it takes time for a dog to learn new problem solving behaviors. By removing a dog from their home (and owner/s) they are in the best space mentally and emotionally to learn. Furthermore, we teach you how to use leadership to get the desired behaviors that you want, and we show you the techniques and structure that must be in place in order for you and your dog to have continued success. Our board and train results are dramatic and life changing. Our owners feel a sense of empowerment they have never experienced before, and they move into a space of confidence knowing they and their dog have the skills necessary to move through situations that were once too challenging.
In our board and train programs, we teach you about leadership, and state of mind work, and how these things influence the behavior of your dog over time. We also provide you with the tools you need to continue maintenance when your dog comes home. You will receive instructional videos to watch while your dog is in training. You also have access to our PRIVATE client Facebook page where you get LIVE updates on your dog’s training journey. You also get 2 lessons during the board and train process to learn the skills and knowledge you need in order to maintain your dog’s behavior. These lessons take place at my shop in Collegeville.
We use professional grade remote collars to get the most reliable, most humane and fastest results possible. The Ecollar provides instant clarity to the dog. We use the lowest possible stimulation level to get the results you want. We provide a hands-on introduction to the collar so you get to feel what your dog feels. This is a medical grade TENS unit, or muscle stimulator, that is used by medical professionals –the sensation is best described as a tickle.
At the time of drop off, we will have a 15 minute meeting on what you can expect for homework (yes, you will have homework). There are two go-home sessions which MUST be completed before the dog goes home. These sessions are critical to transfer to you the techniques, and strategies that will allow you to have continued success. You will also have one additional follow up session available, if you need it. We are here to support you the entire life of your dog, because we want you to have success together as a canine-human unit.
A deposit is required to hold your dates. There is usually an 8 week wait, so call as soon as possible to get on the schedule.
Dogs over 6 months must be spayed/neutered to participate in this program. We will make exceptions on occasion.

Boarding is currently not available, due to staffing issues. When available, it is only for dogs who have previously trained with us. Space is extremely limited, so plan to have a back up (or 2)!
You can relax while you are away knowing that your pet is in the best of care. Your dog will enjoy training and play sessions each day. There is always something fun going on at the daycare with other dogs and staff. Your dog will come home better behaved then when it arrived, plus will have enjoyed itself while you were away.
