Board and Train


Karmic K9s Board and Train option offers the most in-depth approach

Your dog will come live with our trainer for a certain amount of time, and receive 1-1 training every single day. Your dog will be living in a home environment and given the same 24/7 care their personal dogs receive

Board and trains are highly effective, and show results much faster than private sessions. Board and Trains are suggested  for more severe cases of behavioral modification, a puppy-raising head start, or anyone seeking a more direct approach.

Your dog will receive a minimum of  three training sessions every day, along with a purposeful lifestyle. Dog training is more than just what takes place during active training sessions, so we have created a lifestyle to help dogs be the most successful. All board and trains go on hikes, field trips, and other outings throughout their stay. These trips are meant to have fun, advance training, and practice the functional aspects of the training.

The board and train, includes one transfer session when your dog goes home, as well as a follow up session. You will also be sent an overview of everything that was worked on, along with guidance for how to continue the training on your own. Many people worry that with a board and train they won’t learn the skills they would during private lessons, but that is not true! Many actually find it easier to learn after their dog is already trained in what to do. Our trainer will also cover the entire process from the why, how, and beyond to ensure success

Good candidates for board and trains include (but are not limited to):​

  • Puppies - ‘Head-start’ programs are a great way to get them on the right track for potty-training, crate-training, obedience, and more!

  • Reactivity - Dogs that are difficult to control and bark at people and dogs. Minor cases of reactivity can often be worked through with private sessions, but oftentimes it is easier and more effective to get the proper and fast results through a board and train.

  • Basic to advanced obedience. Drop off your pup, and pick up an upstanding canine citizen. We will teach your dog to sit, lay down, come when called, loose leash walking, and more. The level of difficulty will depend on what you want out of your dog
