Dog Training

Board & TRain Dog Training 1

Don’t have the time for training, but want a well-mannered and well-educated dog? Our board and train option is for you! Your dog will stay with Mel, a Certified Trainer, for training, daily exercise, and play time. Mel gives your dog one-on-one attention throughout each day of a Board and Train to teach the behaviors you desire while mixing up the activities, playtime, and location of the daily training sessions so that it’s a blast for your dog! During the training, you will receive periodic updates, videos and photos on your dog’s progress and are welcome to visit any time to check in. When it’s time for your dog to go home, we will sit down with you to discuss the training your dog has achieved, and we will work with you so you know how to work with your dog. Comfort in a crate already is desired and friendly with other dogs.


Basic (1 week):

With 7 days of board and train you can jumpstart your training quickly! This is great for starting your dog off on the right paw to have a well-behaved pup. Focus is on obedience training while working on those nuisance behaviors like jumping on guests and not listening.

You get all the things that make Dogpanion the best – 24/7 training, in-home real world experience, cutting edge methodology but in a smaller, more concise package.

At the end of one week you can expect your dog to be well on his way to being an excellent companion.

Full Board and Train (2 weeks):

This is an all-around learning program with daily experiences. Dogs learn about eye contact, spacial pressure, verbal cues and hand signals for obedience. Our training methods are positive reinforcement with conditioning exercises to teach your dog what we want them to do instead of punishing them for unwanted behaviors. Structured learning that will be reinforced during training includes walking on leash, socialization, and obedience cues including down stays and wait. Let us help you build that list of new rules and a solid communication foundation for a positive start!

Includes one 30 minutes and one 60 minutes sessions along with ongoing support.

At the end of the program, you will be expected to carry out instructions to make sure that you and your dog are successful. A board and train is the beginning of your training experience, not the end. Board and trains should be viewed as a partnership between us, you, and your dog for the life of the dog.

Full Board and Train (3 weeks):

A similar plan as the 2 week program but offers more advanced obedience, social skills, and addressing problem behaviors. The 3rd week allows for tightening up the commands and training in more distracting settings. Dogs will be conditioned around other dogs and people and proofed for consistency and reliability. Need help on something specific? Let us know, we’ll add it to the list! Perfect for therapy dog prep.

Includes two 30 min and two 60 min sessions along with ongoing support!

All Board and Train packages start with a free in home consult. Call us to schedule!
