Dog Boarding and Training
Programs Near Chicago & Milwaukee

Going out of town? Not enough free time for an obedience classes? Are you overwhelmed with your dog’s behavior? Let us do the hard work for you! Through our board and train program, your dog will board in our spacious accommodations and receive daily instruction sessions. Your pet will be trained for a minimum of an hour per day in a variety of settings. Throughout the board and train program, your dog will learn all of the basic obedience skills and we will be sure to address any behavioral issues. The lessons in this program can also be specialized, just let us know. Upon completion, your dog will be returned you. A 60 minute “go-home” lesson is mandatory at this time. You will be shown your dog’s finished obedience and taught the respective handling skills needed to maintain your dog’s new abilities. You will be given one additional “follow-up” lesson, which is scheduled about one week after your dog goes home with you. Daily updates are happily reported to you. We also make a video after one week’s progress so you can see your dog’s progress.

The charge for our two-week board and train program (including the “go-home” and “follow up” lessons) is $1450.00
Additional weeks can be added to the board and train program to advance your dog’s level of obedience. Each additional week is $725. and includes a lesson.

                                                               

Holistic Board and Train Program – NEW!



Our newest board and train program is the most comprehensive one yet. Take our regular board and train program and add a holistic veterinary exam and diet modifications. This cutting edge program proves best results for misbehaved dogs. The holistic veterinary exam is completed to prescribe the most effective nature diet for your dog. Herbal supplements may also be used to help with the inner stresses that may contribute to your dog’s hyperactivity or aggression. We have worked jointly with a local veterinarian and dietary specialist on the concept of food, behavior, and obedience for the best possible results. 
Holistic exam similar to a physical is $59.00 The most comprehensive IHT test is $260.00 added to program cost. Plan the test two weeks before your lessons begins to allow for test results to be complete and food recommendation can be made or any holistic herbs added to your pets program.
