Dog Board & Training Focusing On Obedience in knoxville
Puts your dog’s obedience in the express lane under the care of our abled and qualified pet trainers.
Each board and training program is customized for the individual dog. During our board and train programs, your dog is glued to their assigned trainer. Dogs live with and train with the trainer 24/7 for a set amount of training days based on the board and train selected. During training, trainers will send you daily progress reports and numerous photos so you can follow along and always stay in the loop on how your dog is doing.
board & train Packages / pricing
We offer three different board and train programs. The 3-Week Training is our Intro Into Obedience at a total cost of $2,500 which includes a lifetime guarantee on the training, and multiple in-home lessons once the dog’s portion of the training is complete. Our Basic On-leash program is 4 weeks long at a total cost of $3,500 which includes a lifetime guarantee on the training, and multiple in-home lessons once the dog’s portion of the training is complete. This is where we train the owner how to communicate with the dog and how to maintain value in their commands.
Our Advanced Off-leash program is 6 weeks long at a total cost of $4,500 which includes a lifetime guarantee on the training, and multiple in-home lessons and we are available for phone calls for the lifetime of the dog.
Our three week Board and Train is an advanced On-Leash program. We will teach a communication system to your dog and a solid foundation. This program will focus on loose leash heeling, impulse control, and the basic commands. In this program we will take your dog to stores, parks, public places that allow dogs.
This program is for the owner who wants their dog to learn the basics and foundation of dog training. For the owner who wants to be able to walk their dog without being dragged around the neighborhood. For the owner that wants to take their dog on trips, parks, stores and have a well behaved dog.
We will work your dog in high distraction environments to build a stronger obedience dog. We will also introduce the E-collar and work on eliminating common problem behaviors such as jumping, counter surfing, digging, jumping on the couch, etc.
This program is for you if you want to be able to walk your dog and have control. This program takes it a step further than our one week board and train. In this program we want the dog to perform at home and out in public! We want you to be able to enjoy life with your dog. We want you to bring your dog to places and have a companion!
We will give your dog a 100% reliable recall regardless of the environmental distractions. While obedience behavior and tricks are fun, what sets us apart from other trainers is our focus on house manners and everyday lifestyle. Remember that your dog will spend most of its time with you at home. Therefore, we want to make your overall experience with your dog more enjoyable.
We are balanced trainers and utilize all four quadrants of operant conditioning as needed by each individual dog. We start our training in our home, in a very low distraction setting, so that we can build a bond and earn your dog’s trust. After your dog has learned all the commands, we will work on duration, distance and distraction.
From then on we will proof your dog’s training in high distraction settings in order to set them up for success in the real world! This program includes a prong collar and an E collar (Garmin, educator technologies or sport dog). Dogs are conditioned and trained with these tools.
what to expect once training is over
