Board & Train Program

Are you going on a long vacation without your dog? Are you feeling overwhelmed by their behavior? Do you struggle to find the free time to train your best friend? Let us do the hard work for you! We offer a boarding and coaching program where we board your dog with spacious accommodations and give them daily instruction sessions. Your pet will be coached for at least an hour per day in a variety of settings. Through the boarding and coaching program, your dog will learn all the basic obedience skills, while also receiving training to address any behavioral issues.

The lessons in our program can also be specialized to your pet. Just make sure to let us know what you’re looking for in their training. A typical board-and-train schedule lasts for two weeks to give your dog enough time to soak in all their new skills and behaviors. Daily updates are reported to you. We will also make a video after the first week’s progress so you can see all that your canine companion has learned.

Get Concrete Results from Training

After completion of the two-week program, your dog will be ready to come home with you. But first, a 60-minute mandatory “go home” lesson will teach you all about their new training. In this special lesson, you will be shown your dog’s finished obedience and you will be taught the respective handling skills needed to maintain your dog’s new abilities. We insist on this step because you need to know how to practice their new obedience skills, or they will forget what they’ve learned and go back to their old bad habits. One week after your dog goes home for you, we schedule one additional follow-up lesson.




Why choose us?

Our mission at Alden’s Kennels is to instruct each owner and family member on how to maintain and develop a positive and trusting relationship with their dog through obedience coaching. 

Let us share with your our lifetime’s worth of effective motivational methods so that you and your dog can enjoy and maintain a life-long happy, successful relationship.


Coaching Program

New Extra: Board & Train + Holistic Veterinary & Dietary Exam

We also offer a new addition to the boarding and coaching program, making this our best and most comprehensive training plan. In partnership with a local veterinarian and dietary specialist, we now offer a holistic veterinary exam and diet modifications as a supplement to our regular boarding and coaching program. The holistic veterinary exam is used to prescribe the most effective natural diet for your dog.  We know that the best possible results often come from understanding the link between food, behavior, and obedience. Herbal supplements may also be recommended to help with unhealthy behavior like hyperactivity or aggression.
