What is Board and Training?

Board and Train is a training technique that employs both physical and mental conditioning to help dogs overcome bad habits, learn new skills, or just act better. This form of intense training can be perfect for owners who want to give their pets some extra attention without the burden of constant care.

The benefits of Board and Train are many: it’s an effective way to address aggressive behavior, it’s less stressful on the dog than trying to train them on your own and it offers personalized instruction from experienced trainers with decades of experience in this field. It also provides a safe environment where you can leave your pet for extended periods, so they won’t have any unwelcome distractions at home. Board and training programs work on improving specific behavioral issues like separation anxiety, aggression, barking etc. 

About Our Board and Train 

We create an environment in which the dog is motivated to engage in the thousands of repetitions it takes to establish deep learning and muscle memory the dog retains for a lifetime. Once behaviors are established, controlled distraction is introduced to where the dogs become desensitized to the distractions and happily remain in compliance.

Each command is trained in a controlled environment until the dog clearly understands what is expected of them. Then, we gradually introduce environmental distractions to ensure they will perform in the presences of people, traffic, other dogs and the like. Finally, we proof the dogs with resistance training. This teaches the dog that when given a command they must follow the command even when pressure is applied signaling for the dog to break from position.

Customer Reviews

Justin is always a pleasure to train with. Instead of just showing you, he takes the time to explain when, where, and why. It’s quite obvious Justin has a unique and special gift in training dogs and teaching the handlers. He understands dogs and most importantly respects them. Im very grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to train with Justin!
