Boarding and Training

Boarding training is the fastest and most intensive training program we offer. It also takes the whole job off your hands and lets your dog learn full time in our school. Since your dog stays with us, it is constantly moving ahead in its progress. This program is especially beneficial because we make the improvement very fast and work with you throughout the series to make sure the progress sticks when your dog returns home.

We offer training that is better than “Boot Camp” or “Cage Free” kennels. Since 2009 we have been continuously selected as the “Best Boarding Training in Los Angeles”. Our Structure and Reward Based programs treat each dog personally, giving it its own space with toys and bedding where it can rest between lessons and play time. We alternate rest time with mental and physical exercise including play and lessons. Your dog gets individual training and group exposure for socializing and distraction training.

Why Choose Boarding Training?

This is great if you are traveling or have another reason to have the dog out of the house during construction or a vacation. We work with your dog every day and the dog training goes quickly in this intensive training program. Lessons with owners come with all our training programs. We want the lessons to transfer seamlessly when you take your dog home. Lessons can be scheduled weekly during the boarding or you can do several the last few days before the dog goes home.

Training Schedule Formats

All our boarding training plans can be set up as continuous boarding or you can have your dog home on weekends. New clients have a two-week minimum for a partial program and four weeks covers our standard curriculum.

Home on Weekends Boarding Training
We do a lesson with you each week before you take your dog home. Those lessons can be any day but are typically on Friday or Saturday. We show you what the dog has learned and give you exercises to practice over the weekend.

Combined Programs
It is also possible to combine programs. If you are in need of boarding for a short time for travel or another need, we can combine a day school or weekly series with a boarding program to accommodate your needs.

Our Happy Customers

I highly recommend your organization for behavior training, boarding, and all the other services that you offer. I am a dog and cat lover and can guarantee you that the first stop I make when I get another dog will be “I Said Sit!”. I will not bring another dog to my home until you have spent 30 days with the animal working your magic. Thank you for saving my dog and my sanity.
