SERVICE DOG BOARD & TRAIN PROGRAM

We offer two types of Service Dog Board and Train programs for you to choose from:

*Traditional - your Service Dog or Service Dog in Training lives with us for 2 or 3 weeks during their training and returns home at the completion of their program.

*Modified - your Service Dog or Service Dog in Training lives with us for 2 or 3 weeks during the week, goes home each Friday evening and returns to us each Monday morning. This allows the handler to practice their homework and get feedback earlier in the process.

Our Board and Train program is one of two in Arizona that does not use punishment or corrections, inhumane methods or aversive tools like e-collars, prongs or choke chains, which have been shown to not only cause physical damage but also to cause emotional damage and escalate aggressive behavior.

We use cooperative, humane, positive reinforcement training methods for our Service Dog Board and Train program that involves daily one-on-one training with our trainer and your dog at the trainer's home and in public settings. We will determine what your dog finds reinforcing, whether that be their food, soft or crunchy treats, toys, praise, affection or real-life rewards (such as sniffing or going outside).

 

Dogs who enter into our Service Dog Board and Train program must be potty trained and comfortable being in a crate. Your dog will be in their crate during mealtimes, overnight sleeping hours and if the trainer needs to leave for a lesson/errand and no one is home. This is done for the dog's safety.

All dogs must show veterinarian proof of current vaccinations (Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella) or a current titer test as well as flea/tick prevention. We ask that you provide enough food to last your dog during their stay to minimize upset stomach.


Female dogs must be either spayed or not in season. The training process can be disrupted for females in heat. For more information about our Service Dog Board and Train program, or to schedule your dog for our Service Dog Board and Train program, call us at 480.886.6596 or fill out our contact form below. 

We require a $500 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot in the program. The remainder of the fee must be paid 72 hours prior to the commencement of training. You will receive an invoice for your Service Dog Board & Train program; we accept payments via Square, Venmo and Cash. Our Board & Train program (minus the deposit) are refundable up to 10 days prior to your confirmed start date.

 

We do offer payment plans, but balance must be paid off *prior* to your dog starting their Service Dog Board & Train Program. 

 

We offer pick up and drop off for our Service Dog Board and Train clients who reside in the greater Phoenix area. We can provide transportation for clients outside of service area for an additional fee.

Our next availability for our Service Dog Board and Train Program is October 27th, 2022.
