Board and Train Programs

game night 2.jpg

Dogs enrolled in our board and train programs stay in a trainer’s home and are integrated into appropriate daily activities including 1-on-1 and group training sessions, physical exercise and out and about field trips. These dogs live like they are one of our own and we value fair, low stress exposure in highly structured real world opportunities that lead to lasting change and success. Midway, go-home and maintenance lessons are crucial to long-term success and are included in every program.

Off-Leash Canine (pricing below)

Off-Leash Canines are dogs you can trust to stay engaged and by your side regardless of distraction and environmental pressure, especially when you are no longer connected by a leash. We begin the program with skill building, layering remote collar pressure over leash pressure for established behaviors, then move outside and to dog-friendly establishments in the community to proof engagement and obedience and strengthen relationship to ensure consistent response.

  • Two Week Off-Leash Canine - $1,800 includes remote collar 

For dogs that demonstrate understanding of basic behaviors such as place, sit, down, bed and recall. Go-home lesson and one maintenance lesson included.

  • Four Week Off-Leash Canine - $3,000 includes remote collar

For dogs that have a basic understanding of behaviors at home, but struggle to offer the same response out and about. A midway lesson, go-home lesson, and two maintenance lessons included.

Behavior Modification (pricing below)

These programs are for dogs showing reactivity / aggression to humans or dogs, those lacking confidence or socialization, resource guarding, separation anxiety or destructive habits. Each program will establish a set of foundational behaviors (engagement, place, sit, down, bed, loose leash walking and a recall) with emphasis placed on a healthy mindset. Length of stay is determined at the evaluation.

  • Three Week Behavior Modification - $2,500, midway lesson, go home lesson and one maintenance lesson included.

  • Four Week Behavior Modification - $3,300, midway lesson, go home lesson and two maintenance lessons included.

PLEASE NOTE:

Dogs must be dropped off with proof of a clear fecal within 7 days of dropoff date, vaccination history and vet contact info, adequate food, supplements and medications, reliable contact info for continued correspondence as well as emergency veterinary care instructions. 

 

50% of the total is due at booking with the remainder due at dropoff. POMC reserves the right to dismiss remaining coaching time if the aftercare instructions are not being followed after the dog has gone home. In-home boarding (stay, play and train) after board and train program lessons are complete is offered at $70 per night if aftercare instructions are being followed, otherwise Foundations Board and Train rates apply.
