Each Board & Train program offered requires a $100.00 evaluation to determine your dog’s baseline and appropriate program. Each evaluation will consist of a number of different actions and commands to note your dog’s current level of obedience and to determine if any behavior modification is needed. After a program is selected, the $100 fee will go toward the cost of your selected program. Please note, an evaluation is NOT a guarantee that a specific program will meet the needs of you or your dog.

During the evaluation your dog will be asked to perform tasks such as sit, stay, come, place, have their leash manners tested, be exposed to separation, noises, and another dog, test their reactivity toward different objects/experiences, etc. This evaluation will help to create the goals needed to be successful in the chosen program.

pack hikes and outdoor adventures

Even as a life-long dog lover and owner, Jessica understands how challenging it can be to make sure your dog gets regular and proper exercise. With our lives so busy with work, family, and other obligations, fulfilling our dog’s need for regular and proper exercise can be a challenge. Allowing your dog to have off-leash freedom (unless requested by an owner to remain on-leash) creates a happy and healthy dog, coupled with the key social component of being socialized with a pack of other dogs provides your dog a chance to bond and build trust with both dogs and humans. Your dog will have the best time hiking and receiving much needed additional structure to maintain their obedience training during the day. Pack hikes (depending on the weather) and Outdoor Adventures are the perfect outlet for dogs and gives owners the peace of mind knowing how beneficial this is for their dog’s health and well-being.

Jessica also provides a pick-up and drop-off option within four miles of her home for an additional charge of $15.00 each way and a total of $30.00 for both pick-up and drop-off. Pick-up times range from 10:15 to 11:15 am and 2:30 to 3:30 pm for drop-off, depending on the day of the week. Please keep in mind that these times may vary.
