Accredited Board and Train Programs

Every canine is unique and sometimes a “one-size-fits-all” approach isn’t the best when it comes to training. Our hands-on approach with both you and your student will help to reinforce positive behaviors and lead to more successful results.

Which Board & Train Program Is Right For You?


In this 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.


In our four-week Bachelor 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.


This six-week program is reserved for more advanced off-leash behaviours, 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.



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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
