BOARD & TRAIN

The best service we can offer you and your dogs for thorough training. 

Unlike commercial boarding facilities, our Board & Train programs take place in our home in Rush City, MN with our personal dogs. Your dog lives and learns like one of our own. We only take two dogs at a time to ensure all dogs get ample attention and training time.

We have three types of programs to choose from.

CUSTOM PROGRAM: $1750/3 WEEKS 

Focuses only on the behaviors you find most important!

REACTIVE DOG PROGRAM: $1750/3 WEEKS 

For dogs that are reactive towards other dogs. Cannot be aggressive towards humans.

JUST THE BASICS PROGRAM: $1500/3 WEEKS

Great for most dogs! We'll work on focus and impulse control, place, sit, down, stay, coming when called, and loose leash walking. 

All programs include a 1.5 hour long Go Home lesson at drop off as well as unlimited email support. Pick up/drop off from MSP/STP included in cost. If you live outside of the cities there may be an additional cost for transportation.
