10 Day Puppy Board & Train Program

This unique board and train program is designed for puppies between 14-23 weeks of age. Raising a puppy can be a difficult task, but it's vitally important for puppies to receive adequate amounts of training and socialization during this critical period in their development. Our team has extensive experience raising and training puppies, including training puppies for potential service and therapy work, so we know what it takes to raise the perfect puppy. Puppies must be fully vaccinated prior to participating in this program. 


What this program includes:

  • Digital puppy raising/training packet

  • Puppy training style collar and training long line 

  • Two private lessons

What we cover with your puppy:

  • Engagement and focus 

  • Confidence building

  • Crate training

  • Housebreaking

  • Loose leash walking 

  • Introduction to recall training

  • Sit/Stay 

  • Down/Stay

  • Place command

  • Proper socialization and enrichment 

  • Body handling (cleaning ears, nail trimming, grooming, etc)

  • Addressing unwanted puppy behaviors (nipping, jumping, inappropriate chewing, barking, whining, etc.)

What you will learn:

  • Proper communication with your puppy 

  • Proper use of rewards for good behavior

  • How to properly address common puppy behaviors

  • How to provide structure and guidance to your puppy

  • Lifestyle training habits to continue your puppy's good behavior and obedience 

  • How to properly socialize your puppy


This program includes two private one-on-one training sessions. The first lesson is your go-home session, where we show you what your puppy has learned and coach you on how to properly communicate with your puppy. The second lesson is your follow up lesson which can be scheduled whenever needed. Additional follow up lessons are always available if needed. Puppies that complete this program are able to come back for advanced off-leash obedience training (once they are at least 6 months of age) and would be eligible for our shortest two week board and train program. 


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

Dogs on a Bench


- Allison Todd

“I cannot say enough about Rebecca and her work with my lab, Olive. Following her two week board and train program, I had a new dog. Previously, I could barely walk her on the leash without her pulling me down, and I could not have people over or meet people out because Olive would get so excited she would jump and be basically out of control. She had no impulse control and was not able to be redirected by me. Today I can "loose leash" walk Olive and it is so enjoyable!  I have also taken her to work with me (as a therapy dog) where she has faced numerous distractions, and she was calm and able to spend time with my co-workers and clients in a relaxed demeanor. I could not have done this without Rebecca and her training. I would highly recommend her without reservation. She communicates throughout the process and is readily available for questions and follow up training. I could not be happier, and I think Olive is as well!”
