Board & Train
I only take three dogs at a time. The dog stays with me for 3 weeks in my guest bedroom. I do not have a kennel nor do I ever plan on having one. Dogs do best when incorporated into the family. I live on 3 acres of land against the woods, large part of which is fenced.
The cost of Board and Train is $1,000 pre-paid. The fee is non-refundable. The client provides the food. I take credit cards through PayPal.
I pick up and drop the dog off. I will work with clients as far as 1.5 hours away. Please calculate the distance to your location from Stanley, NC 28164 to see if you are within my territory.
Specific goals must be established, for instance:
- Come when called
- Lose-leash walking
- Go to mat
- Leave it
- Polite greeting
I will train your dog like my own. We will work hard and in the evenings relax in my living room. Some clients tell me that their dogs become calmer and more mindful after training. I think it is due to the fact that I am able to teach the dog to communicate with people and control their environment by making correct choices. I will provide final videos of how to work with your dog. After the training, the owners and I will have one training session to transfer the skills.
I take puppies as young as 14 weeks. I will continue potty training your dog. To enter the program, your dog must be able to sleep at night for at least 6 hours and be in the crate for at least 4 hours during the day, both without soiling in the crate.
To ensure the dog's comfort in the room where the dog is staying I play soothing music, and I use D.A.P. dog appeasing pheromone plug in.
