Board & Train Programs 

Rebecca's board & train programs are designed to expedite the training process. Many of Rebecca's clients work full time, have a family, and may not have the time or skill-set to train or address their dog's behavior problems.

 

The board & train programs are intensive lifestyle immersion programs. Your dog will receive multiple training sessions throughout the day, plenty of off-leash play time, socialization with other dogs, and structured leash walks. Training is conducted both on and off-property, to proof obedience and behavior in a variety of environments. 

 

Be sure to check out the FAQ section of this website for common questions about board & train programs!

Initial Consultation  

Phone: FREE         In-Person: $50 

 

All training programs begin with an initial consultation. This can be done over the phone, or if you prefer, you may visit Rebecca's home, meet her in person, and tour the facility. During the consultation, you and Rebecca will discuss your dog's behavior, previous training, your lifestyle, and training goals/expectations. Rebecca will also discuss her training philosophy, style, and tools used during training. This is of course a great time to ask any questions you may have regarding the training process. If a board & train is scheduled after the consultation, the $50 consult fee goes toward the board & train program cost. 

Two Week Board & Train Program

This is designed for dogs that already know basic obedience (sit, down, stay, place) and are generally well-behaved in and around the home, but may not be as well behaved around distractions, or they still pull on leash and/or do not have a reliable off-leash recall (coming when called). This program is great for active dog owners that want the freedom of being able to take their dog on off-leash adventures and know that their dog will be reliable and safe.

The program includes:

  • Marker Training (verbal "Yes")

  • Building Engagement/Focus 

  • Sit/Stay

  • Down/Stay

  • Place command

  • Break (release word)

  • Heeling properly on/off leash

  • Recall training

  • Remote/E-collar Training

This program includes three private one-on-one training sessions with the owner(s). This includes a two-hour drop-off session at the completion of the program, and two follow-up sessions to be scheduled within six months of the drop-off session. Additional follow-up sessions are available if needed. 

Payment Policy: Once accepted for the board & train program, you will receive a PayPal invoice from Rebecca for 50% of the program cost. This acts as a deposit to hold your dog's spot for training. A final invoice will be sent a week before your dog's scheduled arrival for training. 

PRICE: $1,950 

*This price INCLUDES a brand new e-collar ($200 dollar value!). During training, Rebecca will determine what type of e-collar is best for your dog. Rebecca only uses the highest quality e-collars available on the market.

Three Week Board & Train Program

This is one of Rebecca's most popular programs! This is a great option for owners looking for excellent obedience responses, both on and off-leash (under high levels of distraction), and for addressing common behavioral issues. Rebecca's training addresses the "state-of-mind" of the dog and she isn't just training a series of commands. Her goal is to bring out the best in each dog, improving their desire to work, and focusing on developing effective communication between the dog and owner.
