Basic Obedience Programs
Schedule your free evaluation with us. We offer Basic Obedience through Board and train, Day training and Private lessons in our facility.
Board and train
Board and train is where your pup comes and stays with us for four weeks to learn all basic commands IE: Sit, Down, Come, Place, No, Wait, Heel, Loose Leash Walking, Focus, and basic house manners on or off leash. It’s a faster process than our private lessons. Our off leash program is all commands taught on leash first and then transferred to a distance. Our trainers work multiple sessions a day, and they are around different dogs daily for exposure. In each board and train you get an hour to an hour and a half long go home lesson, 3 follow up and a year of group class pack walks every other Saturday to help with that continued education. Even after the program we are here to help you! Just give us a call
Two Week Board and Train – On leash – Call for an evaluation
Three Week Board and Train – Off leash – Call for an evaluation
Behavioral modification – Minimum of 4 weeks – Anything from severe anxiety to live bites – Call for an evaluation
You will also always receive photo and video updates of your dog while they are in our care Via WhatsApp, and always have access to call with any questions you may have. If you have any other questions about what our Board and Train program offers or how to get started, feel free to call!
Private lessons are one on one lessons with you the owner, your dog(s) and a trainer. During these lessons, the trainer teaches you how to train your dog, working step by step through each command. Private lessons are great for owners that want to be hands-on and just get a foundation started and continue the training themselves.

If you already have a breeder you’d like to work with, we can do a temperament test with the litters. If you do not have a breeder or puppy picked out, we can work with you in finding reputable breeders and getting the right dog for you. We can temperament test shelter dogs as well to ensure we have the absolute best fit to assist you and fulfil your needs.
