BOARD & TRAIN PROGRAM

book-now

Our job as a Dog Training Academy isn’t to try to ‘control’ your dog, our job is to teach your dog to control itself. We achieve this though the application of  KC Dawgz’s, ‘The System’ which is based on proven repetitions and graded, incremental approximations that target the desired behavior.

Our Board and Train program is our most popular training option. It combines boarding, training and playtime for your dog. It also includes individual sessions with the dog owner at the end of the program in order to ensure a solid transfer of knowledge. This is a great option for owners who are traveling or simply do not have the time and expertise required to train their dog to the level that they require. Our professional dog trainers work with each dog multiple times daily during their stay. In addition, dogs are boarded in our luxury boarding suites and they participate in daily group play. After this fun and comprehensive “Doggy Boot Camp,” you’ll also have opportunities for follow up lessons from one of our staff specialists, just to make sure that those good behaviors stick around for the long run.
