Our most popular service!

Doggie Joggie's Board & Train is a total immersion program which will instill important behavior and obedience fundamentals in your dog as thoroughly and efficiently as possible. Your dog will live with the trainer in a private home and be exposed to real situations common to household settings. Each dog is crated individually and kept on-leash while outside of her crate, which allows for a safe, controlled environment, and also puts the dog in a calm state of mind for productive sessions of training work.

The Board & Train program is offered in 5-night increments (1 week), with a minimum time frame of 1 week. The Board & Train program includes an initial training consultation visit during which the Trainer will meet with you in your home. During the initial consultation visit (before the Board & Train begins), the Trainer will assess the needs of your dog(s) and work with you to design a personalized training plan. The Board & Train program also includes a 60-minute private lesson with you and your dog at time of drop off, during which the trainer will provide a recap of how the week went and show you how to reinforce the techniques which were practiced and developed throughout the week.

The Board & Train service includes:

  • 2 hrs/day of focused training work + exercise, divided up into 4-8 sessions, TBD based on each dog’s needs
  • Additional “passive” training, including positive socialization training, TBD based on each dog’s needs
  • Daily email updates (sent by 6pm), including photos as well as progress reports.
  • Feeding 1-2x per day based on Client's request
