About board and train programs: Training a dog is not something you want to rush into two weeks or guarantee results. Our dogs are living creatures and the "quick fix" places that are putting undue stress on a dog to get them to perform or submit to the pressures of quick training are unfair and rush through a learning phase. Our goal is to provide a Wiser, kinder more wholistic board and train offering for Louisville, KY. Our programs include in home training, and lessons where you're learning side by side with your dog what they've learned. Your dog will stay with us in our house (guest room set up for dogs) at night and in our training building during the day for training sessions.
