Dawg Boarding School

Let our experienced trainers jump start YOUR dog’s training!


Because time is on our side. At All Dawgs, our goal is to help your dog become as happy and well-adjusted in their life with you as possible. Teach your puppy or dog new skills and helping him or her change undesirable behaviors can be a repetitive process and consistency is key, along with a solid understanding of how your dog learns, which can be a time-consuming process to complete. That’s where we come in.

The number one reason you should consider our Boarding School program for your dog here at All Dawgs is that it provides the adequate time needed to help your dog change their behavior.

In Boarding School, your dog lives 24/7 with their instructor, where he or she will be given time and plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. The instructor will use her extensive expertise to give your dog the core learning that is the foundation of great lifelong behavior. Each of our Boarding School instructors has over 20 years of dog training experience and is an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator.  Our instructors are gentle, respectful and work with all breeds and all types of dogs, helping to change or mold behavior the proper way, over time.

  • While we’ll be happy to crate-train your dog, they must be able to be in a crate without injuring themselves or destroying the crate to enroll in Boarding School. If you are having this issue, we can first work in private lessons in your home. To enroll, click here.
