Board n' Train

Getting a new dog or puppy? Struggling to work through your current dog or puppies behavioral issues? Or just heading out on a vacation and would like your dog to have fun getting trained and playing spots? These are some of the many situations that are perfect for our Board n' Train programs. We offer multiple packages to fit your unique situation and lifestyle! See all of the many options below.  We also welcome dogs from out of state!  We offer pick up at MSP airport to anyone who wishes to ship their dog to be trained with us. Programs can start on any day you choose.

What to expect:

Our programs are designed to teach your dog or puppy the ways of the world. Many of our programs will teach all of the basic commands and behaviors to set them up to be the best versions of themselves. All of these behaviors will be taught through positive training techniques. We never use shock collars, or domination training methods. Basically your dog will learn to work for you because it's awesome to get praise, toys and/or treats!

Sending your dog or puppy to us will set it up to be a wonderful dog who understands how to behave really well. For a dog or puppy to be really successful with this training, you will need to reinforce their behaviors throughout their lives. Don't worry, we will be there for you along the way. Most of our programs will earn you 1-2 in-home training consultations to teach you more about continuing the training, and we are always available to help through email or phone consultation.

We work to teach obedience skills, household manners, impulse control and confidence! We do not currently take in dogs with behavior issues such as dogs that show major aggression or fearfulness.

 

  • We require Bordatella and Rabies vaccines for all of our Board N' Train students. 

  • Unfortunately we are unable to take dogs that are aggressive with other dogs or humans.  

  • Dogs must be able to stay quiet in their kennels and not bark for a few hours at a time.

  • If you have any questions please feel free to email us at LuckyMuttDogTraining@gmail.com
