Overview of Our Board and Train Program

Your Dog receives intensive and consistent training from an expert dog trainer. With the right program and qualified training, board and train programs can deliver precisely what they promise – an obedient, professionally trained dog! Board & Train programs are called “boot camps for dogs” because of their intensity and duration.

Customizable Training Programs

One of the common reasons dog owners will decide to board and train their dogs is to avoid the time commitment of private and in-home lessons. Board training programs can be an excellent option for owners who are short on time or busy. Rather than having to fit training sessions into their already-packed day, owners can entrust their dogs to a board and train program, knowing their dog is receiving the necessary training and care. In addition to the time, training can be quite stressful. Our Board & Train program allows you to sit back and relax (maybe even take a vacation!) while someone else does most of the work.

Board and Training programs offer consistency and structure.

While many choose to board and train for general obedience, these programs are especially beneficial for dogs already displaying behavior problems like separation anxiety or leash reactivity. These issues often require the kind of intense 1-on-1 training boarding programs offer. If your dog’s behavior is problematic, a Board & Train program is the fastest and most efficient way to tackle their issues. Owners interested in enrolling their dogs in sport or using them for hunting should also consider this option.

Your get controlled socialization opportunities.

A common misconception is that dogs are not allowed to socialize during Board & Train programs, but this is far from the truth. When dogs are placed in a boarding & training program, they usually socialize with the trainer’s dogs or even the other dogs in the boarding program, if appropriate. They are given opportunities for group play and plenty of exposure to other dogs. This is a more controlled way to develop your dog’s social skills than in a group class full of other dogs that may not have been trained in basic manners or obedience training. Your dog can learn better with fewer distractions in our board and train program.

Off Leash Training

The Collar Club Academy Off-Leash Training Program is an in-depth, basic & advanced obedience 4-6 week training program taught by one of our certified professional dog trainers. This program is designed to have our full board and train staff interact with your dog.

What sets the Off-Leash Training program apart from the On-Leash program, besides its length, is that if you plan to have your dog off-leash anywhere, it could potentially be distracted and put in harm’s way. Whether you would like to walk your dog off-lead or want them to behave at the park, off-lead training is key to ensuring their obedience with or without the lead.

We spend the time necessary with your dog to instill learned behavior. This ensures that you can feel confident about letting him/her off the leash, with or without distractions, and expect the same obedient behavior, not unwanted behaviors.

At the 4-6 week mark during the training, you will join us at the facility to start working with your dog in person. you will acquire the skills and knowledge you need to continue the training at home when the course is complete.
