Doggy Boarding School is for dogs of all ages and
breeds. During boarding school, dogs live with
Florence, our owner, and are treated like members of the

jumping up on people, nuisance barking, destructive
chewing, pulling on leash, running off/not coming when

non-responsiveness. Boarding School has a "whole dog"
focus so training is comprehensive addressing all parts

several formal training sessions each day learning basic

your needs. The main focus of training is to teach your

in the training process. Boarding school works best when paired with Private
Training so owners can learn to maintain all of the behaviors the dog has learned.

time required to properly train their dog. It's also good for those who do not want to
get up several times during the night to housebreak a puppy! Boarding School also
works well for families who want their dog to learn complicated tricks like fetching a
beer from the fridge, bringing you the remote control, or any other creative
