AKC Certification Preparation or Special Needs

Board & Train Boarding School Program to prepare for the AKC Programs or Special Needs.

Welcome to board & train for dogs and puppies by Canine High School. We understand life and it’s many challenges, many of our clients live busy lives with work, school, kids, homework, family, friends, and other commitment, it’s hard to find time to learn to train a puppy. Our certified, experienced trainers will welcome your puppy or dog into their homes and treat them as their own. Whether you need help with your puppy during a critical learning time and want us to set up foundational skills for you, or you have an adult dog with special needs or concerns that need a professional to care for and understand them, we will endeavor to uphold your priorities and deliver lasting results.

What will my dog learn in k9hs Board & Train?

Our program is tailored to you so it depends entirely on what goals you have for your puppy or dog. There are general foundation skills, but each dog or puppy training plan is tailored around what you would like your dog to learn and focus on. Our consultation is where we learn about what you will be doing with your dog. We have some puppies that go on to travel regularly in private planes or boats, others join our AKC Canine Good Citizen Program, some live in high-rise complexes, become trick dogs, agility dogs, or go on to live in big urban cities.

What makes k9hs board & train program different?

k9HS adheres to methods that are force free and positive reinforcement based. Unlike other boarding and training programs out there, we will not scare, intimidate or put a shock collar on your dog, EVER! We get results by teaching your dog what you’d like them to do and make those things what your dog wants to do! So not only is your pup a well behaved dog, but they will enjoy the program and will learn to perform these skills based on fostering a relationship based on trust and love. 

What does a k9hs Board & Train day look like?

During your dog’s day in Board & Train they will be getting a morning exercise/ play session, followed by breakfast and their first training session of the day. Then they will have time to rest and off to our k9HS - Puppy School Program for a pack walk, socialization and if applicable an AKC STAR Puppy or Canine Good Citizen Certification Preparation training session . After another break for a nap, they will get dinner and their final training session, followed by a final walk before bedtime. It’s a full day of learning and fun!

Weekend packages do not include pack walks or AKC group training, that is substituted for a private midday walk and a private 1-on-1 session with your dog or puppy.
