Board and Train
Teaching owners to let their dog enjoy being a dog!
We love to help owners see the true potential of their dogs, raise your expectations. Often the vision of what our dog can be is skewed by naughty behaviors of their past. In return we lower our expectations rather than raising our skill level. We give up on our dog and on ourselves by making our world smaller. When our dog displays unwanted behaviors: lunging, growling, resource guarding, counter surfing, and other unwanted behaviors, we are told to avoid distractions, close our blinds, and stay away from things our dogs do not like. Here at Enzo’s Acres we help you see you CAN change your dogs behaviors by teaching you to understand the behavior and by teaching you new ways to communicate with your dog. We come from a place of YES! So you can get out of the “NO”!
At Enzo’s Acres we specialize in helping you learn to balance your dog and eliminate his/her unwanted behaviors. Helping your dog get in a clear, focused and balanced mind space so we can create the best results. Board and Train gives us an opportunity to create a solid foundation which is more manageable for you to maintain upon their return home. We offer numerous options for Board and Train programs each designed with you and your dogs unique situation in mind.
Board and Train is a great option for those of you with busy lives! It lays the foundation so you can start enjoying your dog. Along with the Board and Train, you get a free month of group classes so you can keep working your dog in a safe, fun environment after you are home.
Whatever package works best for you and your dog, we want everyone to succeed. But remember, the real work always starts and ends at home, training your dogs must become part of your lifestyle. We can fully train your dog, but if you don’t follow our instruction when you take your dog home, you will all fall back into the same old patterns of negative behavior. All of us at Enzo’s Acres want to see success, so we stay with you during the entire process and beyond.
Do you dream of a dog who comes every time you call him, no matter where you are or what is going on around you?
