Board & Train Package

Double-up the fun with the ultimate in dog boarding services. Whether you’re away or on a staycation, gift your pet with a fun training camp – and when you return, you’ll be pleased to see how well mannered your dog has become.

Your dog’s training plan will be completely customized to your needs. We can tackle anything from basic to advanced obedience or work on resolving car chasing, barking at the door, and more! Just tell us what you’d like, and get ready to see your dog become the companion you’ve always wanted.

First, here are some quick facts about our Board and Train option:

  • Your dog enjoys up to 4 hours of interactive exercise each and every day, including hiking, playing fetch, swimming and more.
  • Every interaction your dog has with the training team positively supports its continued learning and skill building.
  • Your board and train package includes an owner transition lesson, where we show you everything you need to know to keep things going smoothly at home. You’ll also receive a step-by-step manual that includes command names and descriptions.

It’s everything you need to maximize your dog’s boarding time with full peace of mind! Our Board and Train package is just $177 per night, and you’ll marvel at all the new skills your dog will learn.

Spring 2016…another happy client!

“I was at the end of my rope with a 6 month old puppy that wasn’t house trained. It was either going to work with Elise or I might have considered finding a new home for her. The good news is that after 10 days with Elise I brought home a puppy that was happy being in a crate for long periods of time and who no longer has accidents in the house!! Thank you, Elise!!!”

ANOTHER REPORT FROM ONE MORE HAPPY CLIENT…“Our wonderfully exuberant 10 month old Goldendoodle was quickly becoming too much to handle. Physically strong, with boundless energy, Desi was at risk of injuring one of us or himself off leash. Elise and her team worked with him for 2 weeks in her Board and Train program and he returned to us a changed pup. So much calmer and willing to listen. Now it’s up to us to continue the training, but we all have a very strong foundation, based on positive reinforcement. We’ve had great dogs our entire lives, but never owned a dog as demanding as Desi. With Elise’s help, he learned self control and how to function within a family. His sweet nature is now what we experience first, rather than his obnoxious behavior. Elise was the answer to a challenging prayer!”
