About Our Board and Train Program
The Maximum Canine Board and Train programs are our most comprehensive training packages. We offer daily and weekly programs and can customize our packages to fit your specific needs. All of our packages are designed to implement our balanced training methods and teach your dog to be a solid citizen both in the house and in public
The first step in our balanced training system is to create value for wanted behaviors, which takes a great deal of time, consistency, and repetition. We then teach the dog about consequences for unwanted behaviors. Your dog will learn sit, down, stay, recalls (come when called), let’s go (loose leash walking), sending to place, heeling (attentive walking), and house manners. We will bring your dog to outside locations — such as pet-friendly retail stores, industrial areas, parks, etc — to help them learn to do their jobs no matter where they are. We will also have your dog work with different handlers so that they understand that they need to listen to everybody in their family the same way. Each dog is taken out multiple times a day between bathroom walks and training sessions and each time they are out we make sure that our communication is clear and consistent. Our Board and Train programs encourage a healthy lifestyle by introducing your dog to a treadmill and basic agility which will get your dog into shape and build their confidence while they have fun learning.
As your dog progresses through our programs we will bring you and your family in to teach you how to access your dog’s new-found knowledge. These private sessions are essential to learning to handle your dog properly. At the completion of the program, you and your dog are eligible for our Maximum Canine Lifetime classes to maintain your skills and help you with any issues that may arise.
