You AND your dog will be better educated and HAPPIER!

WELCOME TO BOARD & TRAIN HYBRID BY GOOD DOG! COACHING & PET CARE

Most Board & Train programs give little follow up care to the owner. It’s all about the time spent with the dog while it’s boarding. While this is great for the dog, what is the owner learning? This philosophy makes it very difficult for the dog and their owners to succeed in the long run.

You see, dog trainers can train dogs. That’s a given. But, in the long run the dog lives with the owner so, the owner needs to learn how to maintain what was taught to the dog in the first place. The owner needs training as much as the dog does! An hour or two at the training facility when they pick up their dog isn’t going to cut it. Not remotely. When the dog goes home, the owners are ill equipped for the flashback that the dog will most assuredly experience. 

You see, the dog has a memory of how they behaved at their home and how they behaved with their owners. They remember the bad behaviors they were able to get away with and they push back against their owners and the new rules. Owners without enough training and guidance can feel defeated and overwhelmed and fall back into bad habits with their dogs, thus quickly undoing most if not all the training their dog learned over the last few weeks. 

Training is a lifestyle of interacting with your dog in such a way that it yields respect, a strong bond and good behaviors.

At Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care we believe in doing more, by helping owners, not just with their dogs but with themselves. Our BOARD & TRAIN HYBRID program combines the intensity of a Board & Train (for the dog) with the One on One In Home Training experience for the owner. We also provide materials to the owner during their dog’s stay with us, that will better prepare them for the return of their dog and the time they will spend one on one training with us and their dog. This is the catalyst for success!

At Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care our unique approach to dog training is geared more towards addressing the fundamental state of mind of your dog, rather than strictly focusing on creating rehearsed behaviors. In other words, we are much more concerned with creating a happy, healthy, balanced dog than creating a dog that simply knows a few obedience commands.

The Good Dog trainers specialize in E-Collar/Remote Collar training, and all dogs that go through our board & train program will be trained with a remote collar system. It allows you to communicate simply and easily with your dog during the training process and beyond.

We specialize in state-of-the-art, low-level, communication-style Remote Collar training. Our Remote Collar program is like nothing you have ever seen and is nothing like the E-Collar training of old. Contemporary Remote Collar Training utilizes the softest, most gentle remote communication, and is one of the most humane and effective approaches to dog training available.

We pride ourselves on boutique-style, specialized, one-on-one attention paid to each individual dog and situation. Your dog will live and learn in a home environment, will be taken on field trips to parks, and shops to begin to learn that the training applies wherever they are. By comparison to the rest of the industry, which tends to do a higher volume of dogs and longer programs, our very unique approach to training and rehabilitation allows us to go further with your dog in less time and create wonderful transformations.

During the board and train process, we teach foundation obedience as well as address many forms of unwanted behaviors, including, but not limited to:

All the basic commands such as…

Sit (with implied stay)

Down (with implied stay)

Place (with implied stay)

Heel/Walk politely with you On and Off-Leash (We will eliminate Pulling, Barking, Excitable Behavior)

Come/Recall 

Crate Training

Waiting for Food (no more mealtime mania)

Waiting at Thresholds (in the home, car etc)

We can also address behavior issues such as…

Jumping

Nipping/mouthing

Barking/whining

Demanding attention

Separation Anxiety 

Crate nonsense (barking, whining etc)

Leadership skills with your dog so your dog understands proper pack order with humans, eliminating a lot of pushy behaviors your dog  may be exhibiting. This is also a game changer for nervous fearful dogs.

Counter surfing and more

You will have homework to do while your dog is here training, which will teach you the philosophy behind our training techniques, give you problem solving strategies, teach you the tool breakdown of the equipment (how it works, turning on/off & charging etc), videos of how to do the work, what the commands sound like (so you can practice/role play them), and give you a jump start on what your dog is learning.

Being committed to doing your homework while your dog is away at training will allow us to spend our one on one sessions on transferring the training techniques which will prepare you for success when your dog returns home.

When your dog gets home you will need to be ready and willing to implement the same type and amount of structure that he will be experiencing here to continue the patterning of good, consistent behavior. If you don’t stay consistent with the structure, he will quickly revert back to old habits. The first 90 days are a critical time when your dog is learning that what he has learned here, is applicable at your/his home. Over time you will be able to transition him to more freedom and privileges as the pattern of good behaviors becomes his true nature.
