We have a small day training school for our client's dogs so they can be taught by experts and then transfer the skills back home. Our goal is to help your dog mature or develop into the best possible canine companion.

Before joining the Academy, most dogs need to complete an assessment, which is a 1:1 meeting with a trainer to touch base about goals, meet the dog, see how the dog does when crated, and answer any questions you have. The cost is $45 and is non-refundable. If a dog has boarded with us and worked with us, sometimes we are able to waive the assessment.

Here are some details:

  • All dogs must have a completed application submitted for approval
  • Dogs come for a three month semester and then can reapply for more training or transition out of PBC Academy
  • Dogs come for a morning or afternoon session. Morning drop-off is 7:30-9am, midday transitions are 12:30-1:30pm and evening pick-up is 5-6:30pm. If a dog needs to stay the full day due to your work schedule, we can accommodate that
  • Day school includes an individual training session with one of our trainers on staff, a group training session with dogs in the same group, and recess where your dog will romp and play. Owners get a weekly video and homework
  • There are a lot more details about our Academy and we are happy to fill you in if you have questions. Contact us now!
