Board & Train:

2 week package ($1600)

The board & train program provides one-on-one lessons for dogs who are boarding at Dublin Creek Kennels. Imagine going on vacation and returning to pick up a dog who has had 14 hours of training in the meantime! This program is ideal for teaching basic manners such as sit, down, stay, come, leave it, and leashing walking. Your dog will be taken through the foundation steps and learn to perform around other dogs, people, and food on the floor. If your dog is ready for it, later lessons will include trips to the local parks, pet stores, and other pet-friendly locations for serious distraction training.

This program is not a good fit for dogs who are reactive to other dogs or sensitive to noise and busy environments, due to the nature of a boarding kennel.

An assessment is required before the board & train program begins (paid separately). The package price includes the cost of boarding, 14 one-on-one training lessons, and 1 follow up family lesson in your home. The family lesson will show you where your dog is at with each skill, and teach you what to do to keep the training going. Remember that training is a life-long endeavor; if you do not follow the instructions and continue to work with your dog, his skills will regress and previous problems will resurface. Call or email if you have any questions about the board & train program.
