Your dog will be trained through increasing levels of obedience and general house manners using only positive reinforcement methodology. We do NOT use choke, pinch/prong or e-collars/shock collars at all. Formal training sessions are conducted throughout the day, as well as informal training during general daily interactions and activities.
Each client will receive one training session with us per week of your dog’s board and train program. In addition, a written handout of your dog’s training and how to properly maintain the training will be provided to you.
Going on vacation? To busy to commit to training? Leave your dog with us for comfort and a positive educational experience!
In order to participate in the Board & Train Program, dogs must be human- and canine-social and live within a reasonable distance of the Lincoln, NE metro area. This training option is not for dogs displaying serious behavior concerns such as aggression, anxiety or fear, as private in-home training with the owner’s involvement would be a more suitable and productive training option for these situations.
Participating dogs must be crate trained and be thoroughly comfortable in their crate at night and whenever people are not at home.
All Board and Train clients are encouraged to bring their dogs own food. Favorite toys and beds can also help your dog feel comfortable away from home.
Please contact us for more information on boarding and training your dog.
“Linda is amazing, both as a trainer and a person. Her knowledge base is unrivaled, as is her ability to translate this knowledge into helpful, usable suggestions for her clients. Her training classes not only support her clients, but also their dogs. Her classes enrich and strengthen the vital trust relationship between dog and owner. This step is missed by many less-experienced trainers. Dogs walk away from her classes with a stronger sense of self control, and composure. Clients walk away from her classes with a better understanding of their beloved canine companions, and a more fulfilling, comfortable relationship with their dogs.”
