Our Comprehensive Adult Dog Board and Train program is designed to address the real and often overlooked challenges faced by adult dogs, rooted in their natural instincts and heritage, which have been somewhat forgotten in today's pet-friendly lifestyle. Dogs have been our invaluable partners and companions for tens of thousands of years, working alongside us in critical capacities. But in the 21st century, the modern pet environment and lifestyle can be seriously difficult for most dogs, given their natures, instincts, and history. Chronic "behavior problems" that have become common in adult dogs are a red flag indicating underlying issues that need to be addressed.
Understanding Changes Everything:
We believe that understanding, not just more training, is the key to helping adult dogs. As a culture, we've forgotten who our dogs are and the shared history we have with them. Our training program takes inspiration from Kim Brophey's L.E.G.S. Model of Integrated Canine Science, which has been celebrated by dog professionals worldwide. This model introduces the foundational elements that direct the behavior of all animals, offering crucial insights into your dog's behavior within their domestic setting.
Dog Training with a Difference:
Our Comprehensive Adult Dog Board and Train program isn't about traditional dog training with a focus on obedience alone. It's about meeting your adult dog where they are, understanding their unique recipe of L.E.G.S. (Learning, Environment, Genetics, & Self). Just like any animal on Earth, a dog's behavior is shaped by both nature and nurture. It's not one or the other. Our modern pet dogs face challenges because of the disruption of the natural balance created by captivity and controlled breeding.
We recognize that every adult dog is unique, and their training program is customized based on their temperament, learning style, and your specific training goals. We take a holistic approach that considers all aspects of your dog's life, including the challenges they may face as a result of their domestication. With this in mind some dogs may need more than the basic 15 or 30 to meet the level of expectations you are seeking which might change based on the information we can share with you to help you grow as a dog owner.
