Board & Train Programs
Dog Board and Train in Westchester, NY
Coming to our Westchester, NY dog training facility for a Board & train is one of the fastest most efficient ways to see results, and is often the best option for the majority of our clientele. I like to think of my board & train programs as more of cheating rather than a quick fix. Not every dog owner has the skills necessary or time to invest in training, to get your dog mentally to the place you know they could be. That's where the cheating comes in, by Hiring us!. The truth is that, to truly modify any behavior takes a life time of persistence and lifestyle change, not only a few short weeks.
Each of our board & train dogs come in with different goals, behavioral issues, and end visions. So each program is treated differently and modified accordingly to each individual. But regardless each dog gets The Art Of K9's foundational communication system which makes all the difference. In a nutshell, our foundation has three core principles:
- Teach the dog the language of the leash
- Create a clear communication system where your dog is responding to verbal markers. Such as place, sit, down, etc.
- Work on generalizing these behaviors around different people and environments
Doing this creates what I like to call "the coffee shop dog". I always tell my clients that if you can bring your dog into a coffee shop and nobody knows they are there, I know we are on the right track.
On the last day of your board & train, a trainer will work with you to teach you how to maintain everything the dog has learned while with us. As well as receiving a go home packet to read which includes principles and concepts you will be using with your dog for a lifetime!
*Prong Collar, a 6-foot leash and e-collar are NOT included in the board & train price. Anything else needed will be an additional cost*
*To add an additional week to a program is an extra $800 per week.
*All Board & Train programs come with one go home session. And one follow up session, at our facility.
