BOARD & TRAIN: Brianna's Boot Camp

Real Rehabilitation. Lasting Results. Proper Owner Education.

Now Accepting applications for Winter/Spring 2021, beginning in February: Committed owners ONLY

We handle every behavioral issue including human and dog aggression and we also have a puppy prevention program to help give puppies the solid foundation for a happy life. We also have a 3 week minimum to our board & train program. 

 

My techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon but nothing will change about your dogs behavior in the home unless you do. We offer a few different boarding options, which will depend upon the severity of the rehabilitation that is necessary, and what the owner and dog will need to do to get back to a healthy place. After an initial consultation to understand the relationship between owner and dog, and the extent of the behavioral issue, we will make a suggestion of how long the board and train should be.  

 

We make individualized assessments to tailor the program to your dogs needs and help them become the well behaved dog they were always meant to be.  By utilizing our own balanced pack of dogs, we create an environment that creates happy, confident and balanced dogs.

The pricing includes:

  • The consultation session

  • Weekly  mid b&t training sessions,

  • Go-home session at the end of the program, a follow-up session after the board and train and pick up and drop off . 

  • During the boarding boot camp, we require owners to come once a week during the process so they understand the changes that are implemented and for the dog to relate to the owner with their new state of mind  

 

*This board and train is NOT for owners who want to drop off their unbalanced dog and pick up an obedient robot dog. The rehabilitation process starts and ends with you, the owner. *

We use a fulfillment formula that respects a dog's need for mental and physical fulfillment every day. Dogs require leadership so they can feel safe that someone is guiding them throughout their entire lives. Our communication is crystal clear,  which is why we are able to help create well behaved dogs despite their age, breed or behavioral issue. Our interactions with your dog are based on rewarding calmness and relaxation. We don't use bribery or force, but guidance to teach your dog a new, more balanced way of being. 

what your dog will learn

  • A calm state of mind

  • How to be balanced, relaxed in various surroundings

  • Walking properly on a leash without pulling, barking, lunging, sniffing, or reacting to dogs and/or distractions

  • Sit, Down,  Recall and Place command

  • Correcting bad behaviors – jumping up on people, jumping on counter-tops, mouthing, nipping, chasing, playing keep-away

  • Recall training (with and without distractions)

  • No Separation Anxiety (some separation issues need a longer program)

  • No Crate Nonsense (barking, whining, etc.)

  • Building confidence with your dog so you get a better off, well mannered dog

  • Work with your dog on the anxiety and fear that is driving most unwanted behaviors

  • Dog Aggression issues – attacking dogs, biting dogs, improper greeting and social skills (minimum 5 weeks for dog aggression)

what you will learn

We are here to educate owners, not judge them.

 

You will learn:

  • How your relationship (interactions) with your dog is the sole influence on their  overall behavior  

  • Basic dog psychology, behavior and body language.  This puts the tools and knowledge into the owners hands, so they are self sufficient in creating an obedient dog

  • How to use dog training tools properly through the three step process of: Energy, Technique and then Tool

  • How to understand any type of behavioral issue your dog is facing or why it is occurring and how to address it

We require WEEKLY training sessions with owners during the board & train process. You will be learning as much as your dog is during this process. It's important that owners are a part of the board & train process because the positive behavior change starts and ends with the owner in their home environment.
