Take Your Dog Home On The Weekends

At Dogology University, we know every dog is unique. That’s why we offer personalized board and train programs spanning two, four, or six weeks. Our hands-on approach and positive reinforcement ensure successful results without e-collars.

Experience the difference of our dedicated team and proven methods. Build a stronger bond with your pet and enjoy a well-behaved companion for life.

When you enroll your dog in our board-and-train program, you become an integral part of the process. Here’s how it works:

Drop-Off & Immersive Learning

On Mondays, you’ll bring your dog to us for drop-off. Our professors will give you the plan for the week, then will immerse your dog in a structured and stimulating learning environment.

Using focus-based training techniques, we’ll shape your dog’s behavior and teach them good manners and essential obedience commands.

Collaboration & Progress Updates

Throughout the week, we’ll keep you informed about your dog’s progress, with notes and video updates.

We’ll highlight the milestones your dog has achieved so you’ll have a clear picture of the progress they’re making and the skills they’re developing.

Friday Review Sessions

On Fridays, you’ll pick up your dog, and you’ll join us for a personalized review session with our trainers before you take your dog home for the weekend!

We’ll let you know what to work on at home, and we’ll provide you with valuable insights, tips, and guidance to ensure consistency in your dog’s training.

At-Home Reinforcement

Weekends at home are invaluable opportunities to practice and reinforce the training your dog has received in the comfort of your own home.

By implementing the techniques and exercises demonstrated by our expert trainers, you’ll solidify newly learned behaviors and strengthen the bond between you and your furry companion.

Ongoing Support

Free Group Classes

Our commitment to you and your dog doesn’t stop once you’ve completed the initial training.

After you’ve graduated from the program, you have the option to attend free group classes to ensure that the behaviors stick, and to address any new challenges that may arise.

These alumni group classes provide a supportive and engaging environment where you can continue to refine your dog’s skills, learn new techniques, and connect with other dog owners who have gone through similar experiences.

It’s an opportunity to reinforce the training foundation and take your dog’s behavior to the next level.

Tailored Support & Resources

In addition to the lessons and group classes, our team is always available to provide ongoing support and guidance.

We understand that every dog and owner is unique, and we’re dedicated to tailoring our support to meet your individual needs.

Together, we’ll ensure a successful training journey and a lifelong bond filled with joy, understanding, and companionship.

Associates Of Focus

In our Associate’s two-week program, your dog will learn commands such as “watch me”, “sit”, “down”, and come when called. They will also learn how to recognize their own name, basic manners, and will be introduced to heeling with a lure.

Bachelor's Of Partnership

In our Bachelor’s four-week program, your dog will learn hand signals for “come”, “heel”, “sit”, “stay”, and “down”, and will automatically sit while heeling. They will also learn manners such as “out”, “leave it”, and how to politely greet people.

Master's Of Committment

In our Master’s six-week program your student will learn more advanced off-leash behaviors, including “sit”, “down”, “place”, “come”, and “heel”. We also strongly recommend this program for dogs with behavioral issues such as separation anxiety, dog reactivity, etc.

What does a typical day look like for my dog?

At Dogology, we understand the importance of structure, routine, and enrichment in your dog’s daily life.

Our carefully designed schedule ensures that your dog receives the necessary training, exercise, and rest, promoting their overall well-being and happiness during their stay with us.

Here’s a glimpse into what a typical day looks like for your furry friend:

7AM: Rise & Shine!

Every morning, our dedicated staff ensures all our students have an opportunity to stretch their legs and relieve themselves with a potty run.

Afterward, they enjoy a nutritious breakfast, providing them with the energy they need for the day ahead.

Once breakfast has settled, they’l get one more potty run to ensure their comfort.

Morning Training Sessions

Once they’re breakfasted and pottied, our experienced Professors will lead your dog through 2-3 training sessions in the morning, focusing on specific skills and behaviors.

Our focus-based training techniques and personalized approach ensure an enjoyable and effective learning experience.

Each session also includes walk or play time, allowing your dog to burn off some energy and engage in socialization with other dogs in a supervised environment.

Afternoon Training Sessions

After a brief rest, the training sessions continue in the afternoon.

Our Professors work closely with your dog, reinforcing previous lessons and introducing new challenges.

These sessions build upon the foundation established in the morning, allowing your dog to progress and strengthen their skills further.

Again, walks and play sessions are incorporated to provide mental and physical stimulation.

Dinner & Evening Routine

As the day winds down, it’s time for dinner at 5PM.

The evening provides a calm and relaxing atmosphere for your dog to rest and recharge.

Following dinner, there’s another potty run to promote comfort and cleanliness.

Lights out typically occurs between 9-9:30 PM, allowing them to get a good night’s sleep to prepare for another exciting day of learning and play.

Our Philosophy

At Dogology, we build strong partnerships between dogs and their owners, using our unique focus-based formula.

Choosing the right training program for your dog can be overwhelming, so we offer a personalized consultation to help you select the program that best suits your dog’s specific needs and your training goals.

Our Guidance Counselors will take the time to understand your unique situation, assess your dog’s behavior, and provide expert recommendations tailored to your requirements.

Strong connection

A strong connection between you and your dog is the foundation for successful training and a harmonious relationship.

Our training methods are designed to foster this bond by promoting trust, understanding, and clear communication.

When your dog is focused on you, they become more engaged, attentive, and eager to follow directions.

This allows for more effective training sessions and a deeper sense of companionship.

Continuous support

Training a dog can be a challenging task, and our experienced trainers are here to support and guide you throughout the process.

Our goal is to empower you with the skills and confidence to navigate any training challenges and create a harmonious bond with your dog.

We also offer ongoing free group class support after you and your dog have completed your initial training with us.

Tools for real life

We believe that training goes beyond simply teaching commands and behaviors.

It’s about enhancing the partnership between you, your dog, and the world around you.

Our programs are designed to equip you with the tools to navigate real-life situations, enabling your dog to be a well-behaved and trusted companion in various environments.

By strengthening the partnership, we enhance the overall quality of life for you and your dog.


What age can my dog start boarding school?

They can start as early as 12 weeks as long as they are up to date with vaccines. Required vaccinations include rabies, distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Proof of vaccinations are required. 

What is a typical day like for my dog during boarding school?

All the dogs go out for morning potty breaks, then it’s time for breakfast before another morning potty break. After that the dogs start the training day, which includes 4-6 training sessions, a training walk, a group play session (if your dog is social), and a public outing before dinner is served in the evening, and final bathroom breaks. If your pup doesn’t play well with other dogs, we’ll play with them one-on-one.

If my student goes to boarding school, won't they just listen to the trainers and not me?

This is a common pitfall with most other Board & Train services, but with our program and philosophy we have you as involved as possible to prevent such issues. We do take-home lessons every Friday afternoon where we review the lessons they’ve learned, and give you homework to practice over the weekend. On Monday, we review the weekly lesson plan with you before you hand the leash over to us.

I just need my dog to be socialized, I don't really need all this obedience right?

While we appreciate your concern for socialization, socialization comes in many forms. That said, we strive to be more than just a dog-on-dog free-for-all. We ask the dog to be well-mannered around other dogs in a cool, calm, positive way, which will be achieved through focus-based training.

How long is the boarding school program?

We have several different packages depending on your dog’s age and needs. Our Associate’s Of Focus is two weeks long, Bachelor’s Of Partnership is four weeks, and Master’s of Commitment is six weeks.

What do I need to bring during my dog’s stay?

Bring enough food for the entirety of their stay (2, 4, or 6 weeks), a 6-foot leash, a no-slip collar, and anything else you might feel will make them comfortable during their time with us.
