We offer a number of in kennel dog training programs, including our on leash program, which lasts for three weeks, our off-leash programs which also lasts three weeks and our total training, Bootcamp program, that teaches your dog both on and off-leash training that lasts for six weeks.  We require that you bring a rabies certificate, copy of current vaccinations and enough food to last your dog during its stay with us.
