Are you wanting an impeccably trained dog who can thrive in all environments? The board and train is right for you!
Think about how much time you have to commit to training. While we call it dog training, a lot of it is human training!

If you have the time, and want to put in the training reps, our basic/advanced package might be the right choice for you and your pup.
