Is Board and Train Right For My Dog?

Your Dream Dog In Two Weeks

Could board and train be your dog training solution?

Long work hours, kids, cleaning the house, and the million other things on your to do list can prevent you from being able to spend the time your dog needs on dog training. We know that with such busy schedules, the last thing you want to come home to in a misbehaving dog. How frustrating! Board and train programs can be a really attractive dog training option in these situations. Your dog gets dedicated, daily attention to their training needs, you get a short break, and your dog will return home with better behavior than they left. Its just that simple right? Not quite. Board and train is a great option for a lot of dogs and owners, but it may not fit every dog and client.

How does board and train work?

At My Curious Canine, we first assign you a dog trainer to meet with to discuss your dog training goals. Your dog trainer will evaluate your dogs behavior to suggest a length of stay that can accommodate your goals. Our positive reinforcement dog trainers then transport your dog to their home to live alongside them and work on their training skills for a minimum of four hours per day broken into several sessions. Our dog trainers work on obedience, impulse control, and even address issues like fear, anxiety, and dog aggression. Our dog trainers use positive reinforcement and dog psychology to reach your dog training goals. We never use dominance, pain, or starvation tactics. You will receive daily updates about your dog's successes and struggles so you can monitor how they are progressing through their dog training program. Upon return your trainer will go over the skills they learned and make sure you know how to maintain the progress that was made and continue to build even better behavior over time. The most important thing to remember about training your dog, is the work is never done. If you don't use it you lose it. It is important to practice your dog's new skills to keep them on the right track.

How much does it cost?

The hours per day your professional dog trainer dedicates to training your dog do come at a higher cost than other types of dog training options. Programs around the Knoxville area average thousands.To board your dog with one of our science based dog trainers at My Curious Canine, you will be looking to pay $1000 per week and we typically keep dogs a minimum of two weeks depending on the dog owners goals and the dog's needs. That is the price of convenience when you want your dog trained very quickly and professionally. In-home dog training and dog training classes can be a much more affordable dog training option but they do take longer and success is very dependent on you doing your dog training homework each night. Board and train can help give you and your dog the critical foundation you need to get past bad habits and on the path of good behavior
