 Board and Train

Rigorous Training Programs for Your Dog

During a Board and Train, your dog will live with a trainer in their home and receive an intensive training program designed with your training goals in mind. This allows your trainer to implement structure and management, as well as give your dog training with professional handling and timing that will help your dog learn quickly and effectively. This will make continuing their training at home much easier, as they will have a good foundational understanding of what is being asked of them. A private training session is required prior to booking a board and train for a few reasons:

 

- To allow the trainer and owner to get on the same page about the dog’s behaviour

 

- To decide on how long of a board and train will be necessary to see enough improvement for the behaviour to be manageable for the owner upon their return

 

- To allow the owner to work on some of the easier training or house rules prior to the board and train, which will mean the trainer will be working on the more difficult behaviours and not spending the initial several days doing things the owner may be able to do at home

 

Following their board and train, if the training plan given to you by your trainer is not followed, you can expect your dog’s behaviour to revert to what it was prior to the board and train. This service is not a way of getting out of putting the work into training your dog, but will make it much easier for you to continue with your dog’s training and get you set up to succeed in your training goals.

What People Are Saying...

"I have used the Board & Train service with Emily numerous times for my two dogs. They are always very well looked after during their stays, and it's so reassuring to know that while I'm away they are safe and comfortable in a home environment. Emily is a knowledgable and competent trainer who has helped both of my dogs with reactivity and confidence issues. I highly recommend Pliant Pack's services!"
