Board & Train
There is no 'one size fits all'.
Every family's dog and situation is unique. My promise to you is that I will use a training approach best suited for your dog, and your situation. My goal is not to command your dog. It is to open the lines of communication between owner and dog, and create an understanding and partnership.
HCC's in-home board and train program is by far the most popular, comprehensive, and acclaimed program we offer. My board and train program teaches your dog appropriate manners and behaviors in real-world situations, around other dogs, inside and outside the home. Your dog will go on trips with me, and learn how to have fun without the stress of confusion often created by not having an understanding of what we consider good dog behavior.
Your dog learns directly from a professional and receives several hours of hands-on training each day. In total your dog will get between 90 and 120 hours of contact training time during his or her stay.
Your dog spends the entire day in a controlled and structured environment where every decision is guided and reinforced. Many dogs find this type of environment to be therapeutic.
You allow me to work through the challenging early stages of training and the tedious repetition that you may not have time to consistently apply.
The amount of time I spend with your dog in the Board and Train program allows me to get to know him or her on a much deeper level. This way I can develop specific strategies and exercises directly targeted toward each individual. This is especially valuable in difficult behavioral cases.
by teaching desired behaviors, exorcising large numbers of repetition which often extinguishes problematic behavior without conflict, combat or stress.
