The board and train program at Maximum Canine provides you and your dog with the most comprehensive education. Your dog is assigned a “lead trainer” that will be responsible for:
• pushing progress
• communicating with owners
• addressing any concerns that may arise during the program
The benefit of this: the lead trainer will help guide other staff members in handling your dog so that your dog is handled in a way that best works for it as an individual.
Having a lead trainer also ensures that someone is responsible for your dog’s progress while being handled by other people so the transition back to you, the owner, is easier for your dog to generalize the new communication style being used.
Our staff takes the time to bond with each and every dog that comes through our board and train program so they can see the value of working with us. This means that your dog is brought out multiple times a day in situations with distraction levels that will help it succeed.
We will bring your dog to various outside locations such as:
• pet-friendly retail stores
• local villages
Doing this helps your dog understand that what we are teaching them does not just apply in a training room or one's house .
All of our board and train dogs are brought into group classes and used as distraction in private lessons as well, to help them learn to work under the distraction of different dogs in their space in a controlled manner.
Trainers will also help their owners find mental and physical outlets that both dog and owner enjoy to help the dog live a healthy and fulfilled lifestyle.
Our board and train program also comes with integration lessons (see below) that will be used to help owners understand and implement the new communication system that we have taught.
