Dawg Boarding School

Why choose All Dawgs Boarding School for YOUR dog?

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.  Teaching 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 boarding school for your dog here at All Dawgs is that it provides the adequate time needed to help your dog change their behavior.

Our “Dog Boarding School” or “in-home” program lets you have the complete freedom of an away-from-home education for your dog that will allow him or her the time that is needed for changes to occur. Choose the time frame best suited to your personal needs, perhaps while you are on vacation or just super busy, and drop off your baby. We’ll do the training and bring you up to speed when you pick your dog up.  Our trainers are gentle, respectful and work on all breeds and all types of dogs, helping to change or mold behavior the proper way, over time.  Our boarding school program is tailor made for your dog’s success, and we won’t be satisfied until you are.

Our Boarding School helps your dog successfully change behavior.

In this two-to-six-week immersion-learning program, your dog lives 24/7 with your dog’s Boarding School 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 training that is the foundation of great lifelong behavior – and give you the easygoing, responsive, family-friendly pet every pet-loving family dreams of!
