Dog-to-Dog Aggression, 
Human Aggression, Food /or Resource Guarding, Separation Anxiety, Severe Fear Issues, Reactivity On-Leash
Extreme Crate/House Soiling (Bathroom) Issues
​, Off leash training (e-collar work)









We work on rule, boundaries and limitations and manners the dog should have when in company of other people.  We work on real life, real world situations to teach your dog how to behave.


The purpose for the board and train programs are for dogs  that need the one on one constant training, exhibit anxiety, fear anxiety, dog aggression, fear aggression towards other dogs and people as well as structure and obedience.

You will bring your dog to my facility and  your dog will be trained in its basic obedience commands.  If interested we will work with your dog to be off-leashed trained. To do this we will train with an e-collar to have your dog be successful. The program is effective and  includes day to day structure, rules, socialization, and supervised play.

This program includes a 1 hour consultation on the first day, at the end of the program plan to stay for a 1-2 hour follow-up where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success, then a 1-hour follow-up  two weeks later along with a 3 month follow up.


Commands that will be taught are: ​sit/stay, down/stay, recall (come command), place command, threshold control (waiting to go out a door, load in and out a car), walk politely on leash, crate training, how to change dogs state of mind from fear and anxieties that resulted in lunging at humans and other dogs, biting humans/dogs, growling and pack order by implementing leadership skills. 

 
To ensure that you are successful  we pick real life situations for your dog that teaches him to stay focused on you, walk at your pace, learn how to ignore distractions . All breeds are welcome regardless of size or past history.​ 

If your dog has real severe aggression issues,  I will recommend a trainer that works with red zone cases on a day to day basis.
Our board and train programs offers an intense training program, 7 days a week.  The program is developed to eliminate unwanted bad behaviors and create structure for your dog by implementing obedience on a daily routine, that will be successful for you and your dog.  Your dog will be trained to understand boundaries, rules, socialization and supervised playtime with other dogs.   

During your dogs stay  it is at the trainer’s home.  All exercise, play, and training is conducted under the trainer’s direct supervision. ​

E-COLLAR TRAINING
​We specialize in state-of-the-art, low-level, communication-style E-Collar training. Our E-Collar program is very effective and the most soft and gentle remote training to communicate with your dog.  The collar has different levels, but I have found low level pressure on and off to the dog is most effective and the most humane approach to dog training. This does not mean all dogs are trained with this tool, but the option is available or if needed we will train you to use the collar..  This collar is a great tool for dogs to be trained off leash and found to be most effective for dogs that are going deaf or are deaf.  Deaf dogs need to be retrained on hand signals and different ways to approach them, so they do not feel threatened.  There is a vibration mode that works great to train deaf dogs on this tool.

Each dog that is trained with an e-collar we us top-of-the-line!  Mini Educator E-Collar, as well as a Herm Sprenger prong/training collar. The Herm Sprenger are the best prong collars on the market.
*Prices do not include e-collar or prong collar. The e-collar ranges in price from $179.00-$289.00, depending on the needs of your dog. The prong collars are $22.00.

Not all dogs are trained with the e-collar this will be discussed with the owner.

**If your dog is having severe behavior problems additional weeks may be required.  After a consultation or early in the board and train process this will be discussed. 

Space for rehabilitation is very limited. For the benefit and safety of your dog I only take one dog per rehabilitation period, so call and sign up today. Balance is only a phone call away.

 Clients are to pick up and drop off their dogs for board and train program at the time scheduled with the trainer.

**EVERY DOG ENROLLED IN OUR BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAMS MUST HAVE PROOF OF UP TO DATE VACCINATIONS. REQUIRED VACCINATIONS: Rabies, Bordatella, Distemper, Fecal Float, Flu Vaccine
