Board & Train

Board and training your dog can be a successful method to help teach basic obedience and fix behavior issues in your dog. Our board and train program is designed to minimize the complexity of training while also making management and maintenance easier for owners. 


This isn’t a “quick fix” option, and owners should always continue follow up work as stated by our trainers.

What is the most effective dog training method?

You guessed it...positive reinforcement training! Positive reinforcement dog training is the basis of all our training programs. Positive reinforcement training is when bad behaviors are ignored and good behaviors are rewarded. This helps communicate to your dog the desired behaviors you want to see while also helping your dog recognize and learn new skills. Tomas and Amanda utilize positive reinforcement-based training methods to help build a lasting bond with you and your dog. 


Positive reinforcement training can use anything from treats, praise, and toys to achieve desired behavior from our dogs. There are no negative consequences associated with positive reinforcement training, as reinforcement is used as a more powerful tool than punishment. 


Rewarding our dogs makes it more likely that they will repeat that behavior in the future.
