Every pet owner wants a well-trained dog in the house. Such dogs promptly obey commands, can spend time alone without being destructive, safely bond with people in the home and don’t get spooked when they encounter strange dogs and people during outings. Since dogs require a lot of positive training to reach this point, dog owners nationwide trust The Dog Wizard’s board and train dog training programs to teach their pets crucial commands and manners.
What Is Board and Train?
A board and train dog training program offers an immersive learning experience for dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. When you enroll your pet in The Dog Wizard’s board and training program, depending on the location, it will stay at either a trainer’s home or a training facility for a week or more and undergo professional dog training sessions daily under the guidance of experienced dog-loving trainers.
Our dog board and train programs are personalized according to the needs of each pet and take into account the demands of your household to ensure your dog can easily integrate into your home after training.
The board training program for young pups and newly adopted pets teaches them commands that make interactions easier. We also teach dogs manners that make living together in the home environment a less stressful experience for both of you. Your dog will know which areas of the house it can access and which items it can play with. It will also learn how to interact with children, adults and other pets.
Dogs who undergo board and train programs at The Dog Wizard return home after their stay with us ready to be well-behaved members of your household.
Is Board and Train Dog Training Worth It?
Training dogs is a necessary part of good pet ownership. It strengthens your relationship with your pet and provides crucial mental stimulation for your furry friend.
However, not all pet owners can conduct house training for their dogs. You may have a busy schedule that doesn’t offer enough time to teach your pup crucial commands and manners. Moreover, you may not have the skills or the patience to conduct dog training properly.
Board and train programs offer an environment that fosters learning. Experts train dogs to obey rules and exhibit appropriate behavior in different situations.
While these programs don’t require your active participation, you’ll receive reports on your dog’s progress and learn how to reinforce your dog’s behavior when it returns home.
Types of Board and Train Programs
How Does a Board and Train Help My Dog?
The training services dogs receive at board and train include basic obedience commands like “sit,” “come” and “place.” Your dog will learn to obey commands and listen even when distractions are around.
Our board and train program teaches skills that help your dog get the confidence to remain calm in various situations. We work intensely on dog socialization skills during the 7, 14 or 21 days your dog spends at a board and train program because we know a well-socialized dog isn’t as likely to become stressed when confronted with a new place or object.
Our loose leash training method is an effective way how to stop your dog from pulling on the leash, ensuring that walking your dog becomes easier once you return home.
We take your dog to various locations and outings during training to ensure it can handle distracting environments without exhibiting problematic behavior.
Training in various locations also helps boost your dog’s confidence so that it’s less likely to have separation anxiety when you aren’t around.
Our professional dog trainers use positive reinforcement, preventive measures and gentle corrections to teach the dog what behaviors we want to see more of and how to make the best choices for a long, stress-free life.
