Board & Train

Let us do the hard work for you! Our renowned board & train program is customized to the specific needs of your dog or puppy.

By fully immersing your dog in a structured training environment, we are able to design the entire day around training sessions, broken up by rest periods, walks, and play. This allows us to maximize results in a short period of time.

What sets us apart?

  • Our board and train dogs are fully immersed in a structured, training-centered environment, and are also taken on training outings to public places. We operate out of our beautiful partner facility in Milton, Countryside Pet Estates.
  • We utilize a separate “training house” on the property complete with a kitchen, living room, and a large, fenced grassy area. This allows us to simulate your home environment and keeps the program stress-free for your dog.
  • Your dog will work with one certified, experienced trainer for the duration of their stay – Ashley Nunnelly and Abby Freeman are our full-time board and train trainers.
  • Small numbers, ensuring safety and that training goals are met.
  • Customized training – you’ll see recommendations below, but we will customize the training to meet your needs and goals. We will let you know if your specific goals are workable within our program!
  • No excessive confinement – the entire day rotates between training sessions, play, and brief rest periods as needed. Even the play breaks are professionally moderated by your trainer, and training is incorporated into the play.
  • Our dogs have their own section of spacious, low-stress suites for overnight rest.
  • Outings to public places to advance your dog’s training
  • A commitment to the use of humane training techniques (we do not use shock collars)

What’s included?

  • Daily updates from your trainer, including progress videos. We keep an open line of communication with you for the entirety of your dog’s stay.
  • A training transfer session with your pup and their trainer upon pickup, as well as customized follow-up materials
  • A one-hour complimentary follow-up session after the board and train, conducted in your home. If you are outside of our in-home service area, the session will be conducted virtually.
  • Discounted follow-up training in your home, if desired
  • Free Lifetime Access to our client-only Advanced Train & Maintain group class

Are you searching for dog boarding and training services? Our facility program is located on a peaceful, farm-like setting in Milton that includes an on-site house exclusively for our small group of training dogs, large fenced area, and extensive walking paths that we utilize full-time for training. This allows us to simulate your home environment as much as possible, and minimizes stress on the dogs. We also offer a small number of board and train spots in a trainer’s home, which are reserved for young puppies and small dogs.

Both options offer small groups, all-day-training to maximize results (broken up by training outings to public places, play and rest breaks as needed), and daily updates from your certified trainer. We pride ourselves on transparency, a commitment to results, as well as extreme care and attention given to your dog’s health and safety.

*These are examples of the types of goals that can be met during the package listed. Typically not all of the above goals will be relevant for one dog, and we take into your account your dog's age and temperament when setting realistic goals with you for your dog's stay. Our board and train program is totally customized to your goals, and we will prioritize the goals that are relevant to you and your dog.

A few guidelines:

  • Due to the extent of work and duration of time required for success, cases involving reactivity or potty training require a minimum of three weeks.
  • Separation anxiety, dog-dog aggression, or dog-human aggression cases are not a fit for our board and train program, but we are happy to work these cases via private instruction.
  • For the safety of the dogs in our care, we require that all dogs are healthy and up-to-date on all vaccines and fecal testing for their age, and they must be able to be safely crated or confined in a suite.
  • We require a two-week minimum to allow us time to proof the training, but do offer shorter refreshers for existing clients.
