In-Home Training Services

Our private, in-home training is performed by Certified Behavior Consultants with many years of success in the industry.

In-home training offers several distinct advantages. By analyzing and addressing your dog’s behavior inside your home, we are able to:

  • Most accurately assess the root causes of behavior issues and develop a comprehensive training plan.
  • Observe your dog in context of the environment in which the unwanted behaviors occur.
  • Work with your dog in the most familiar, stress-free environment possible.
  • Completely control the training environment and prevent unwanted distractions.
  • Offer the privacy, convenience, and one-on-one attention that only in-home consultation offers.
  • Save you time and money.

Boarding Services

We cater to clients with special needs dogs that are difficult to board in traditional kennel facilities due to separation anxiety, reactivity to other dogs, fear of strangers, or other issues. We are happy to accommodate special diets, medical needs, as well as behavioral needs.

Unlike traditional boarding facilities, our clients’ dogs aren’t forced to stay in small cages or cold, sterile dog kennels. We pride ourselves on providing a home-like environment for each dog. Our enclosures have both a private indoor barn area and a fully-fenced outdoor yard offering a scenic view and fresh air. The barn is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and the the dogs are free to go in and out of the fully-fenced private dog yard as they please. Each dog yard also has a mister system, a fan, and an in ground pool to ensure that your dog is cool and comfortable in the warmer months.
