What is the board and train method?
Board-and-Train is a training program where you drop your dog off to be trained at our facilities. We will keep the dog for several weeks and train the dog while it is boarding with us. We’ve found that this type of focused training produces the best results for your family’s needs.
How much does it cost?
Each of our training programs is custom tailored to the specific situation. There are a number of factors we evaluate prior to building a training package for you such as your dog’s age, temperament, previous training, as well as the desired goals of the owner. What works for one dog and owner, won’t necessarily work well for another.
Can you train small dogs?
Absolutely. Small dogs and large dogs have the same capacity to learn. The only difference is the owner’s tendency to tolerate more extreme behaviors from their small dogs such as aggression, excessive barking, and even housebreaking or marking problems.
What happens after I board and train?
Follow up one on one sessions are included in each package, after which monthly group classes are offered to help you keep up with the training provided as well as the opportunity to ask the trainer any questions that have come up since integrating your dog back into its home environment.
I have a sensitive and fearful dog. How can your training help?
Sensitive or fearful dogs (may or may not display submissiveness or fear-based aggression) have unique circumstances that can be addressed through our board and train programs. Dogs displaying either introverted or extroverted behavior based on fear can be challenging to train without proper guidance and coaching. The main goal in training dogs of this temperament type is to build confidence in the dog through obedience exercises and other learned behavior. Come & Train It K9 has an excellent success rate with dog aggression, people aggression, and positive reinforcement training for your pup.
