Boot Camp and Board & Train

Our Most Intensive Training

We realize that bringing a new puppy or rescue dog into your home, while very exciting, can also create anxiety and disruption. Like newborn children, the first few days, weeks, and months of your dog’s new life are critical for his or her happy and healthy development, as well as a lifetime of harmony in your home. 

The Boot Camp concept has gained great popularity for people who are busy with work and family but still want a really well-trained and well-adjusted dog. While you are hard at work, so are we – training your dog. The Board & Train program is a great option when families go on vacation.  Often times when a family goes on vacation the dog is kept at a boarding facility, so why not get some intensive training built in with the stay? The Boot Camp and Board & Train options are some of the most popular packages we offer in the Boise and greater Treasure Valley.

Problem Behavior Assistance 

Old dogs can learn new tricks 

What are the reasons some dog behave in problematic ways? Very often, your dog has behaved a certain way for an extended period of time, making it extremely difficult to interrupt the cycle. We help you understand the science of canine behavior using techniques that are easy and have practical applications. We will help you learn how to condition and counter-condition to the behaviors you want to see more of. With our help you will become proficient at discouraging behaviors that are problematic and reinforcing the behaviors you want to see repeated. This will help you be better able to get your dog to behave in more desirable ways.
