In-Patient

The MOST comprehensive, All-Natural Canine Behavioral Rehab & Training Program ever available…anywhere!

In-Patient Behavioral Rehabilitation & Training

A highly-specialized Board & Train Program treating up to severe behaviors

Considering most Aggression cases utilizing an all-natural, socially facilitated Methodology

This Program is like the others!

The In-Patient Behavioral Rehabilitation & Training Program is easily one of the most comprehensive, all-natural, socially facilitated behavioral training programs for dogs available anywhere in the Northeast. 

Utilizing two naturally occurring behavior learning processes, first documented in nature, Social Facilitation & Allelomimetic Behavior, our experienced Pack of well-balanced dogs can help almost ANY dog with ANY behavioral issues. 

It’s as if your dog’s behavior is under a specific type of “lock” and we are the “locksmiths” with the Pack being the “keys” we use to open up your dog.

Under the guidance of our expert human trainers, dogs enrolled into our In-Patient Program experience a safe, natural training environment, using scientifically-proven behavioral training practices.  The result of this style of training is a calmer, more confident dog who will choose the more appropriate behavior in any context.

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 In-Home Training Sessions

I only wish it were that easy!

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

In reality, unless the owner just rescued a new dog to 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 most often leading 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 even the most severe behavior issues requires the dog to spend some time away from the owners.  

During this time, the dog 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.

The dog will actually learn to choose the behavior that produces the most predictable and positive outcome, on his or her own, with the Socially-Facilitated help of our Pack of well-balanced dogs and expert human PackLeaders!

About our incredible In-Patient Program

Unlike your typical 2 to 3 week Board & Train programs offered by other compamies, our highly-specialized, one-of-a-kind In-Patient Rehab & Training Program has your dog living with us at our home 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 In-Patient dogs, 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.
