This unique board and train experience is for puppies between 16 weeks and 6 months of age. Your puppy will live 24/7 in our training program, which includes a lifestyle of structure, routine, socialization, and supervised play. By living at my home for 1 week, your puppy will develop a new foundation and state-of-mind that will make it easy for you to continue training at your home. This will empower you to continue developing a new and incredible relationship with your dog as he/she grows up! Many clients that complete the 7 Day Train and Play Puppy Party, join us again for private lessons around 6 months of age to achieve low-level e-collar off leash freedom!

In this program, your puppy will learn the following skills:

  • Walk politely with you On-Leash
  • Sit/Stay
  • Down/Stay
  • Place Command
  • Crate Training
  • Potty Training
  • Waiting for Food
  • Waiting at Thresholds (Doors, Car, Crate, etc.)
  • Appropriate and Polite Play with Other Dogs
  • Exposure and Calm Socialization with Cats


We will also focus on any minor behavior issues, such as:

  • Jumping, Nipping, Mouthing
  • Excessive Barking
  • Counter-Surfing
  • Leash Biting/Chewing


This program includes a 30-minute consultation on our starting day, and a 2 hour follow-up at the end of the program where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success. Each puppy receives a prong/training collar.

For dogs older than 6 months of age with no behavioral issues (fear, anxiety, aggression, etc)

The Barking Zone's Two-Week Obedience Board and Train experience is our most popular program! It's an intensive lifestyle program that is effective by immersing your dog 24/7 in our training routine, which includes daily doses of structure, rules, socialization, and supervised play. This is a great option for owners who are looking for excellent obedience (under high levels of distraction) and to improve their canine-human relationship, but are not dealing with serious behavioral issues (see the 3-5 week program for more intense dogs). By living at my home for 2 weeks, your dog will develop a new foundation and state-of-mind that will make it easy for you to continue the training at your home. This will empower you to continue developing a new and incredible relationship with your dog in lots of new an exciting places!

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

In this program, your dog will learn the following skills and commands:

    • Walk politely with you On- and Off-Leash (We will eliminate Pulling, Barking, Excitable Behavior)
    • Sit/Stay
    • Down/Stay
    • Place Command
    • Recall/Come
    • Crate Training
    • Treadmill and Swimming (on request)
    • Waiting for Food
    • Waiting at Thresholds (Doors, Car, Crate, etc.)
    • We will also focus on any minor behavior issues, such as:


    • Jumping, Nipping, Mouthing
  • Excessive Barking
  • Counter-Surfing


This program includes a 30-minute consultation on our starting day, a 2-hour follow-up at the end of the program where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success. Each dog receives a prong/training collar.

Party Animal Rehab

4-8 weeks

This behavior modification package is for dogs with severe behavior problems like:

  • Dog-to-Dog Aggression
  • Human Aggression
  • Food and/or Resource Guarding
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Severe Fear Issues
  • Reactivity On-Leash


This is the only package The Barking Zone offers for dogs that have attacked a person or other animal, bitten humans or other animals multiple times, has intense resource guarding, or intent to do harm (including fear-aggression). Please contact me so that we can discuss the severity of your dog’s aggression so to create a program fit for your dog. It can take a few days, or up to a week for an aggressive, anxious, or fearful dog to begin to trust in leadership, rules, and boundaries–this starts by removing them from their environment and starting them on a fresh slate in a structured home, with a balanced pack. A Board and Train Rehab is the only way to truly change all of the variables to start reshaping your dog’s state of mind.

In addition to all of the basic skills and commands listed in the Two-Week Obedience Program (above), this program includes a 30-minute consultation on our starting day, a 2-hour follow-up at the end of the program where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success, and a final 1-hour follow-up one to two weeks later. Each dog receives a top-of-the-line Educator E-Collar, as well as a prong/training collar.

Rates:

$2500 for 4 weeks* (Price includes e-collar, which ranges in price from $180-$290, depending on your dog's needs.)
