Our individual dog training sessions will be at the Field House at our Bothell location near Seattle and scheduled for a convenient time.

Board & Train – book soon, capacity is limited

(To qualify for the board and train program, your dog must complete a Trial Day in our main facility.)

Board & train is a 10-day program (2 weeks Mon – Fri) $1,250. Board & train includes, overnight boarding, daily group play with activities, daily report cards, A trainer will work with your dog individually one hour per day during the 10-day program on the following skills:

    • Attention to handler
    •  Sit
    •  Down
    •  Come
    •  Stay
    • Leave it
    • Wait at doors
    • Loose leash walking

Our two-week Board & Train program was created to teach dogs basic obedience through daily, personalized and professional training. Your dog’s knowledge will grow and focus will intensify as he learns and perfects his skills in an environment full of distractions and activity. This program benefits dogs of all ages and levels of experience.

Board & Train students enjoy all of the comforts of boarding (including free playtime) Monday through Friday and return home to spend the weekend with you, where you will reinforce and supplement training. Upon completion of the two-week course, you’ll receive a thorough written training summary and two one-hour follow-up sessions at our Seattle area resort.

Please also keep in mind that our board & train program gets your dog these new skills, but it is up to you to keep them moving forward once you get them home.  It is not a miracle two-week program where your dog becomes a robot.  You get the same dog back just with better manners!
