Our Board & Train programs are a wonderful option for clients who want to get started with training their pup, but do not necessarily have the time to meet for weekly group or private training sessions. They are also an option for some dogs who may struggled with fear-based reactivity or aggression, to learn in a safe and controlled environment. We have limited availability to take on board and trains at this time due to class schedules and competitive dog sports, but if you are seriously interested in getting started please fill out an application today to see if we are a good fit for you. You may fill out an application to get started by clicking here, or scroll down to see a list of our different available Board & Train programs, or for previous clients ask about our custom board and train programs. A $200 non-refundable deposit is required prior to booking any board and train with us, which will be put toward the total cost of the board and train that will be due upon dropping your drop off with us. Email or text us today at 813-391-0970 to find out if any of our Board and Train programs are a good fit for you and your pup!
