Board and Train dogs will be picked up & dropped off by the client unless other arrangements have been made. All Board & Train programs include 6 hours of private training at our facility. The 6 hours typically works out to: (1) 2-hour mid-training session; (1) 2-hour pick-up training session; and (2) 1-hour follow-up training sessions.
At the mid- and pick-up sessions, we will go over all that your dog has learned and work with you on how to start implementing the training into your daily life.
Follow-up lessons are provided to help ease the transition of your dog back into your home and to help you maintain the high standard for behavior we have at our kennel.
When bringing your dog for a Board and Train, all we need is your dog's food and any medication your dog needs, including flea/tick and/or heart worm (only if they need to be given to your dog while your dog is with us.)
Do NOT bring any bedding, toys, water/food bowls, treats or bones!
Drop-off Agreement: When dropping off your dog at our facility, you will need to stick to the exact time that we agreed upon. We are a working kennel so the staff are busy working dogs in between appointments. Therefore, we pull staff off of training to meet and greet you to make sure your dog gets onto the property safe and securely.
Upon arrival, your dog must be on a leash/collar setup from which they cannot slip out of when going from your car to our property and during the hand-off to the staff member. Your dog may be nervous, scared or excited and any of those things can lead to your dog escaping the collar and running off or around the property, which is a safety issue for the dog, the staff and other dogs on the property.
When you arrive, you will hand off the dog to a staff member. You are NOT to hug, kiss, bend down or use a high-pitch voice at all. Instead, please just hand off the leash to the staff member. Not following these instructions can jeopardize the safety of the staff member.
The staff member will bring the dog back to the kennel and put him/her in the kennel.
You may leave food and medication and any further instructions with the front desk staff.
We do not allow non-employees into the actual kennel as we have numerous dogs with serious issues, and it will create an unsafe environment for all of the dogs as well as staff and yourself.
