Board and Train

Our Flagship Training Program

Getting a dog is supposed to be a positive thing in your family's life, right? So what do you do if you don't have the time to train your dog, and their behavior is becoming more stress than you envisioned?

The Board and Train program is a life saver for families in need of relief from bad dog behavior. 

I guarantee to transform your dog into a well-mannered dog that will be the envy of everyone who meets them. By using the methods that work best for your dog, in real world situations, I am able to open up lines of communication to your dog so that they can finally understand what good dog behavior is. 


The Board & Train 

Your dog will be exposed to real-world situations in-home and in public. They will learn to breeze through those interactions with calm confidence. 

Your dog experiences everyday life with me; car rides, cooking in the kitchen, interacting with children and other dogs is a part of the training. 

Your dog learns how to be on good behavior in any situation; in public or at home, on leash or off. 

Your dog stays in their own private kennel, experiences training in the real world, and is cared for 24/7.

The Board & Train Program Covers

Basic and Advanced Obedience

After searching high and low, I found Bob and Happy Dog Training Academy. Bob made me feel so comfortable about sending my 7 month old GSD away for a couple weeks. As hard as it was, Bob sent daily updates to keep up involved in River’s progress. They were my favorite part of the day. Bob was super flexible in the send home process and spent time answering all my questions, observing me and my dog, and providing all the education I needed. I am blown away at my dogs progress. While we still have a ways to go, Bob gave both of us the foundation needs to greatly improved our quality of life. I am forever thankful for Bob and Happy Dog Training Academy. Anyone looking for a successful training program for their best friend(s), this is it.
