In ALL animal groups, Social Facilitation occurs EVERYWHERE in nature! 

    • Your dog will follow the lead of the more socially balanced dogs

      • Often referred to as “monkey see, monkey do”!

  • Social Interaction & Play are daily events and will enhance joyful learning
  • NOBODY can teach a dog about behavior better than a well-balanced dog

Our Canine Behavior Training (CBT) Program is easily the most comprehensive, socially facilitated behavior training program in the Northeast US helping you reach your goals!

Along with successfully addressing your specific concerns, every CBT canine enrollee will leave Training with three basic foundational behaviors that we “install” in every case before we can proudly call them a “Graduate“. 

First off, you’ll be able to enjoy the…Auto-Sit!  

The Auto-Sit (AS) is where your dog learns to place his butt down to the ground, without ANY commands, whenever her or she “wants” anything.  Think of it as your dog saying “Please” without having to be told all the time!

Even better is …100% Loose-Leash Walking

Oh my goodness what a relief it is!!  Loose-Leash Walking (LLW) with a dog on a completely slack lead where your attentive buddy is actually watching and following you as the Leader!  I will “show-off” your dog’s ability to Follow the Leader as well as teaching you how to Lead!

And lastly, included in every CBT Program, along with the AS & LLW is a super solid Recall!  

Speaking for myself, my team and so many dog owners, a dog’s ability to Recall (R) with Distractions could be the difference between life and no life/no dog.  We have an incredibly effective, safe, force-free, positive-based Recall Exercise that is hands down the most successful & safe solution to a very common problem of your dog not “not coming when called” 

I promise you, there’s a much better way.  Follow me, I’ll show you the way!

 

Harnessing the power of two all-naturally occurring learning processes, Social Facilitation & Allelomimetic Behavior, our experienced Trainers and Pack of well-balanced dogs, can help any dog to improve their own behavior. 

Under the consistent guidance of our expert human trainers, dogs enrolled in our Canine Behavior Training Programs experience a safe, natural training environment, using scientifically-proven behavioral training processes and practices. 

The result of this style of training is a calmer, more confident dog who will choose the more appropriate behavior in any of life’s situations!

Why is Board & Train so much more successful?

Many highly committed and loving dog owners contact us hoping they will be able to change their dog’s severe, and oftentimes dangerous, behavior with just Private Training Sessions (at the owners home).

Oh man, I truly wish it were that easy!

In my many years of experience working with owners and training their dogs, I have learned that most owners are just way too “close” to the dog and their undesirable behavioral patterns are inextricably intertwined. 

In reality, unless the owner just welcomed a new rescue dog into the family…every owner is “part & parcel” of the development of the very undesirable behaviors they now wish to extinguish. 

From the dog’s perspective, because they are under the belief that their owner actually “taught them” to be this way (unintentionally, of course)…this can be VERY confusing to the dog and will most often lead to stagnant or non-existent progress in any training efforts.

Well then, what does work? 

I’m glad you asked!  In my experience, the most effective and natural way to modify from the mildest to the most severe behavior issues actually requires the dog to spend some time away from the owners.  

This is called Board & Train.

During this time, under the guidance of expert Behavioral Trainers leading a Pack of experienced, socially adept, behaviorally balanced canines, the dog here for training will learn how to make vastly improved choices and subsequently, will exhibit vastly improved behaviors.

The previous undesirable behaviors will no longer be unintentionally reinforced so they can begin the path towards extinction while being replaced with calm, confident and consistent positive behavioral patterns and choices.

Dogs that are fortunate enough to come here for training will actually learn how to choose the behavior that produces the most predictable and positive outcome, on his or her own, without the need for the owner to continuously repeat largely ineffective verbal commands. 

With the help of our Pack of well-balanced dogs and expert human PackLeaders, your dog can enjoy the rest of his or her behaviorally balanced, socially enriching life alongside their two-legged best-friend!

About our Canine Behavior Training Programs

Unlike your typical 2 week Board & Train programs offered by other companies in their effort to treat EVERY behavior, our highly-specialized, one-of-a-kind Canine Behavior Training Programs have your dog living with us alongside our highly-experienced Pack of well-balanced dogs who will “pave the way” for some incredible behavioral changes to occur. 

Working here in a relatively familiar “home-type” setting, we can successfully address even the most severe behavioral issues, such as Aggression.  Replicating this “home-type” environment is critical when it comes to modifying tough behaviors and creates a much better chance at long-term success.

Dogs don’t live in “kennels”, they live in homes – thus, they don’t behave the same way in a kennel as they do at home.  One of the reasons our Program can be twice as long as our competitors is because we take an all-natural approach. 

We don’t even start the training process until the dog feels 100% safe in this environment so that he or she can begin to behave “normally”!

Our absolute #1 concern when working with dogs, especially your dog, is SAFETY. 

Whether it’s the safety of our Pack dogs, the dogs in our care or our staff here…we are keenly aware of the potential issues involved in working with dogs exhibiting Aggression and have a proven track record of professionalism and safety.
