2-Week Board & Train
Our Board and Train program is our most popular training option. It’s boarding, combined with training and playtime for your dog. It also includes individual sessions with the dog owner at the end of our program in order to ensure a consistent transfer of knowledge. This is a great option for owners who are traveling or simply do not have the time and expertise required to train their dog to the level that they require. Our dedicated training professionals work with each dog multiple times daily during their stay. In addition, dogs are kept and boarded in your trainers’ personal home! After this fun and comprehensive “Doggy Boot Camp,” you’ll also have opportunities for follow up lessons from one of our training specialists, just to make sure that those good behaviors stick around for the long run.
Our 2 Week Board & Train Program is ideal for first-time dog owners, people with busy lifestyles, and anyone who needs help reinforcing the best behaviors in dogs of all sizes, breeds, and ages. Your K9 companion will learn intermediate commands and safe socialization during a two-week stay in your trainers’ personal home, in addition to being trained to avoid problematic behaviors as part of our preventative-training program. After your dog graduates from our Intermediate Dog-Training Program, you’ll receive a Go-Home Lesson that will help you reinforce good dog obedience behaviors as the dog owner. You will also receive 4 follow-up sessions with our training specialists and a custom instructional go-home video.

Our Intermediate Dog-Training Program also includes training to stop bad behaviors. This training addresses:
- Waiting politely at doors
- Proper greetings
- Not jumping on people
- Avoiding excessive pawing
GROUP PLAY AND SOCIALIZATION
We believe a dog needs to be exposed to other dogs and able to co-exist and may even elect a proper play style. Our Board and train dogs get to run and play in groups, learning how to act as a pack and take direction from their handlers. Dogs in our board and train program are exposed to basic behaviors even while engaged in play with other dogs such as recall, sit and downs.
Every Signature K9 graduate and their family members receive owner training and instruction upon graduation during our Go-home lesson. Our Go-home lesson discloses our transitional keys to success when welcoming your K9 companion back home. Each client or family will learn about the training their dog has received, how/when to use the commands, and proper reinforcement of the training. Owner instruction includes a demonstration of the owner’s dog performing the commands.
