Board & Train: Board and Train provides your dog the opportunity to receive individual and personalized training while you are away. You will discuss specific goals with our trainer, who will train your dog in multiple short sessions each day. Common training rquests include loose leash walking, impulse control, bolting or not coming when called, resource guarding and jumping. A detailed training report is included upon pick up.
