BOARD&TRAIN

Welcome to our exceptional 2-week board and train program, where we offer a personalized and transformative training experience unlike any other. With a focus on your dog's well-being, safety, and individual needs, our program goes beyond traditional boarding facilities. With round-the-clock supervision and care, limited capacity for individualized attention, and real-world training in home and public environments, we are committed to providing the highest quality training for your furry companion. Join us for an unparalleled journey that will empower your dog to thrive and excel in everyday situations.

 

A well-behaved pet is not just about obedience to commands; it's about understanding their place within the family unit. Dogs are naturally pack animals, and recognizing their position in their human pack is crucial for their behavior. This is where Merritt Dog Training stands out. We integrate pack structure training into our programs, providing your dog with an understanding of their role in your family, leading to more respect, better behavior, and a stronger bond.

Our two-week program is the perfect solution for dogs without major behavioral issues. Over this period, we lay a solid foundation of basic obedience commands while instilling an understanding of pack dynamics. This dual-pronged approach not only improves your dog's behavior but also enhances their relationship with you and your family.

 

The advantage of our Board and Train program is the immersive learning environment it provides. Your pet is trained several times a day across various scenarios, ensuring they learn and retain their new skills effectively. We also address and correct common problem behaviors, providing you with a pet that's a joy to be around.

What Your Dog Learns:

  • Sit: Your dog will not only sit promptly but also maintain that position until released, even in distracting environments. This heightened level of obedience promotes better control and safety, whether you're at home or out and about. 

  • Heel: Our program includes teaching your dog to walk politely by your side without pulling on the leash. It's not just about going for a walk; it means your dog will become a well-mannered walking partner, making your walks much more enjoyable for both of you.

  • Place: Beyond just finding a spot to sit, our training refines the 'place' command. Your dog will learn to stay calmly in one spot until released. This behavior is incredibly valuable when you need your dog to settle down, whether you're at home or in public settings.

  • Recall: Our recall training is designed to create a strong and reliable bond between you and your dog. Your dog will respond promptly when called, even in the presence of distractions. This command enhances safety and provides peace of mind when your dog is off-leash.

 Add-Ons:
