Brainiacas Boarding School

Enrollment is open for The Brainiacs Boarding School! Programs range from basic skills to trick training and (of course) behavior modification. Your dog will come and live in my home for 1-4 weeks while we work through a training program designed specifically for them. Our boarding school uses positive reward based training methods ensuring your dog will learn and have fun.

Prior to your dog's stay, we'll meet in your home to discuss your dog's behavior, personality, routine, and history. I will explain why your dog is exhibiting any unwanted behaviors, we'll review your goals for your dog's behavior, and then set a training program in place. I'll review each step of your dog's training plan, so that you understand what and how your dog will be learning during their enrollment.

After your dog's stay we will meet for either one 2-hour long follow up visit (at drop-off or pick-up) or two 1-hour long follow up visits (one being at drop-off or pick-up) so you can learn how to use the new skills your dog has mastered.

Just looking for someone to watch your dog while you're away? Staycations are also available.
