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 sports? 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 to 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

 

Dream Dog & Puppy Start-Up Programs 

4-6-8 Week Options

Are you ready to have a dream dog? Our 4, 6 & 8-week programs will give your puppy or dog the skills needed to be a dream dog. These programs are designed with you and your dog's relationship in mind. We will show you how to work together to build an unbeatable bond together through consistent training. 

We will teach your dogs many skills in basic obedience and household manners. Some of the behaviors we will work on with your dog will be a reliable recall, sit, down, stay, go to bed, wait at the door, wait for food, hand touch, leave an item alone, walking with a loose leash, and impulse control with major distractions. These skills will be worked on and built up to become bombproof in distracting situations, so they will be able to handle almost anything life throws at them.

 

The dogs will also learn to not jump on people as they come in the door, inappropriately bark, surf the counters, nip, play-bite, or inappropriate chewing behaviors. Your puppy or dog will also work on mild anxiety, aggression, and fear. We will work on potty training and you will be provided with a guide to continue their potty training success! You will also be provided with a plan that will help you lead your dog to willingly to work and behave well for you!

 

This program is completely customized for each dog and household. We only want to teach your dog the behaviors that will benefit you, and if there is a special area, skill, or trick you want to be taught, we will happily work to make it a reality. Your puppy or dog will get daily training, socialization, and support as they are living with us in our home. They get to sleep comfortably in our home with us and our dogs. The dogs will get plenty of playtime, so they will be mentally and physically stimulated. We will have a session to teach you the skills you will need when we return your puppy or dog to you. To ensure the dream dog behavior continues, you will get 2 free follow-up sessions to ensure a successful transition.

 

This program is designed for puppies and dogs of all ages.

Your dog will have a free complimentary bath before they go home!

*All 4-6-8 week Board n' Train dog families will receive our Ultimate Dog Training Box (a $200 value!) Giving you all the tools needed to train your dog and give them many outlets for mental stimulation.

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

Dog & Puppy Basic Start-Up

 2 weeks

 

If you have a puppy that is jumping, pulling, nipping, or just not listening very well, this can be an awesome program for you. This is also a great program for people who know they are getting a high energy puppy that will need more structure. Let us help you with all of that in our Dog & Puppy Fundations 2 week Board n' Train program! The dogs/puppies will begin to learn the foundations of name recognition, recall, sit/stay, down/stay, hand touch, leave it, and loose leash walking

 

The dogs will also learn to avoid jumping on people as they come in the door, nipping, play biting, and chewing inappropriate things. We will work on potty training and you will be provided with a guide to continue their potty training success since 2 weeks is not long enough for dogs to be fully potty trained. You will also be provided with a plan that will help you lead your dog to willingly to work and behave well for you!

None of these skills will be understood at a high level, as 2 weeks just is not long enough to make these things into "bombproof" behaviors. However, it is a great jumpstart for dogs to get started on the right path. They will need your continued training and guidance to turn their skills into "bombproof" behaviors! 

 

This program is completely customizable, and we can teach your dog all of the skills listed or other skills if they work better for your household! The puppies get daily training, socialization, and support as they are living with us at our home.  The dogs will get plenty of playtime, so they will be mentally and physically stimulated. We will have a session to teach you the skills you will need when we return your puppy to you. To ensure the behavior continues, you will get a free follow-up session 2-4 weeks after your dog returns home!

 

 

This program is designed for puppies and dogs of all ages. 

Your dog will have a free complimentary bath before they go home!

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

Vacation Fun n' Train

1 Week

 

Getting a new puppy but worried about how they will behave or if you'll have the time to train your puppy to be great? Let us help you with all of that in our Vacation Fundations 1 week Board n' Train program! The dogs/puppies can work on skills like name recognition, sit, down, relax at a mat or bed, leave it, and foundations of leash walking. We can also work to avoid jumping, nipping, play biting, and chewing. 

1 week is not nearly enough time to create solid behaviors in a dog though. It will take many weeks to start getting bombproof behaviors. This program is designed to focus in on a couple of key skills that you want worked on. We will work on it for the week and give you all of the information that you will need to continue to build awesome behaviors with your dog.

This program is great if you're going on a 1-week vacation and just want your dog to learn some basic skills and have a lot of fun mental stimulation while you're away.

 

The dogs/puppies get daily training, socialization, and support as they are living with us at our home. They get to sleep comfortably in their spacious 4 ft x 4 ft kennels with us and our dogs. The dogs will get plenty of playtime, so they will be mentally and physically stimulated. We will have a session to teach you the skills you will need when we return your puppy to you.
