Board & Train

Boarding School for Your Dog—It Works!

Immersive training combines the best in boarding with individualized training, taught by our dedicated trainers—for a happier, calmer, better behaved dog.

Simply, Board & Train works. Set in a boarding environment with expert daily training, away from distractions, dogs are totally focused on learning. It’s an ideal solution for those without time or capacity to do proper training themselves—and it works for puppies and adult dogs alike.

Board & Train School is shaped around an essential truth: A properly trained dog is a happier dog. Using only positive, force-free techniques, we tap into their natural learning instinct to nurture a better behaved, calmer pet who brings even more joy and fun to your life together.

Head Trainer Carey Bolduc and her team oversee both training and care at the Dog Ranch, delivering a structured daily schedule of integrated training and play.

Choose one of several core Board & Train programs and, after a consultation, Carey’s team will tailor it to ensure your dog’s training goals are fully addressed. After training, we set you up for continued success at home with a written plan and videos, and encourage you to ask us for any needed further advice.

Board & Train’s immersive system ensures good behaviours are fully learned—and that your canine companion is on track to be your best dog ever.

While most behaviours are trainable, there are a few exceptions that are very difficult with little success to train outside of the home. Such as severe separation anxiety, house breaking and extreme aggression issues. Contact Carey to discuss further.

Board and Training School options:

Our packages include boarding at the Dog Ranch while training, and they can be individualized to fit your dogs (and you and your families) personal needs. Our Board & Train packages are available as a guideline for the common training needs of most puppies, adolescent and adult dogs, but they can be structured for your specific requirements as well.

 
Puppy Boarding School

For puppies who are 10 weeks or older and have their 2nd set of shots, and need to start engaging in a structured training program. They will stay in the Ranch house with our Head Trainer Carey, so they’ll be in a home environment but with structure and routine daily. The Dog Ranch’s Puppy Board and Training School will teach your pup the following: good manners, release word, ring bell for a potty break, drop it, find it, sit and watch me, rewarding calmness, name game, recall, how to walk nicely on a leash, sit, stay, down, come, leave it, go to your bed, and crate training. 

Adolescent Boarding School 

For young dogs (who are 5 months or older and have their 3rd set of shots), who need a daily structured training routine. They will stay in a home environment in the Ranch house with our Head Trainer Carey, and be taught how to focus better, including: rewarding calmness, recall, sit and watch me, drop it, find it, leave it, down, how to walk nicely on a leash, go to your bed, leash walking, the name game, release word, and crate training.

Hyper to Calm Dog  

Is your dog hyper reactive and out of control with excitement all the time? Having control over your dog will give you and your dog the confidence to not only create a calmer home environment, but also safely go anywhere at anytime without you both being on edge all the time. Our hyper dog package is a (recommended) 30 day stay at the Dog Ranch and your pup will be trained in many different scenario’s daily to condition your dog to respond better to all your commands including when someone knocks on the door, leash walking, politeness around food, drop it, find it, leave it, down, sit for greetings, got to your bed, name game, release word, crate training and recall.  

Leash Manners and Recall 

Walking your dog and having it recall to you on command is how you build a solid happy foundation of a great relationship, so it’s important that you both enjoy the experience. During your dogs training while boarding with us (14 day minimum), your dog will learn how to recall immediately in all situations, and walk politely on a loose leash in a distracting public environment. You won’t be embarrassed when your dog won’t come back to you in the park, or to walk your dog in public anymore!

Learn How to Play Nicely 
This 14 day stay at the Dog Ranch for your dog, will include many hours of controlled play while learning a variety of commands. Daily they’ll be rewarded for calmness, leave it, drop it, take it all while playing chuck it, tug, and playing with other dogs. It’s a great way for you and your pup to learn how play at home, in the backyard or in the dog park can be fun and rewarding at the same time.
Better Manners 
Is your dog bad mannered and ignores your requests to stay, sit, lie down, and come back to you at home and in the dog park? Our Better Manners package will daily condition your dog to respond better to commands including: being rewarded for calmness, politeness around food, sitting for greetings, the sit and watch me command, got to their bed when asked, and continually learning the name game so you can both lead a stress-free life together.
