Board & Train

​Board & Train 5 months and older

Many people shy away from Board and Train because they want to be a part of their dogs training process.  With K9 Tailshakers Board & Train clients being involved is a vital part of their success.  Our trainers lay down the foundation helping make the process a much smoother transition.  Training the client is just as important.  

Our Board & Train programs offer busy clients a jump start on their training. Many clients today work full time and/or have children and find it difficult to find time to devote to training.  We can help by laying down the foundation and then teach you how to apply it at home and in everyday real life situations.  We don't just train the dog, we train you! 


Board and Trains are a great jump start to your training program although participation from the client is also required.  Completion of private lessons are a vital part of your program.   We will provide your dog with a great foundation although it is up to the client to maintain the level of structure and consistency when their dog returns home, particularly the first few months after they return home.  Think about starting a program at the gym, if you stop going the results will begin to fade.  


We provide a Go Home Show, Private Lessons and Client Access Only Instructional Video with your Board & Train Package so we can make sure you understand everything your dog has learned and how to follow through and continue your dogs structure and training.   We strive to make your dog balanced so they can be a part of your every day life at home and in public settings.  

Board & Train will include 2-4 private lessons and access to Instructional video for future reference. We weigh your dogs, watch over their health and food intake making sure all is going well. All Board and Train clients receive discounted Private Lessons for the life of the dog.  For example: if they would like to further their dog in training and/or find they need more help in the future if their dog begins to develop any problems or for refreshing the dog.  Private Lessons are typically $125 an hour although Board and Train clients are only $75.

Commitment is required from the client as a vital part of your dogs success.  Clients must commit training at home and follow up lessons. Your plan is an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT part of transferring skills learned with us to your home.
