The Ridgeside K9 Difference – Communicate, Connect and Thrive

Dog Board & Train Programs

Puts your dog’s obedience in the express lane under the care of our abled and qualified pet trainers.

Each board and training program is customized for the individual dog. During our board and train programs, your dog is glued to their assigned trainer. Dogs live with and train with the trainer 24/7 for a set amount of training days based on the board and train selected. During training, trainers will send you daily progress reports and numerous photos so you can follow along and always stay in the loop on how your dog is doing.

board & train Packages / pricing

One, Two, and Three-Week Adult Board & Train Packages (5 months and over)

We focus on – leash obedience, place work, off-leash recall, and cover all aspects of livability, control, and environmental neutrality. Often behavioral issues all come down to confusion and the dog having no idea what the desired behavior is. Teaching the dog impulse control and self-capping drive and teaching the dog how to communicate is critical for long-term success.

This is our most basic board and train class. The 1-Week Board and Train class is for a happy pup who ONLY needs to have leash manners. This course is not for behavioral cases or dogs with anxiety issues.

Pricing: $1,500

This program is for the owner who wants their dog to learn a basic foundation of dog training. This program is for the owner who wants to be able to walk their dog without being dragged around the neighborhood or enjoy lunch on the patio of your favorite restaurant with your dog by your side.

Our 3-week world-famous board and train program focus on obedience both on-leash and off-leash, from inside the home to higher distraction areas, such as parks, department stores, beaches, etc. Our trainers focus on real-world dog obedience at all times.

In this program, we will focus on giving your dog a reliable recall regardless of the environmental distractions. While flashy obedience and tricks are fun, what sets us apart from other trainers is our focus on house manners and everyday livability. Remember that your dog will spend most of its time with you at home. Therefore, we want to make your overall experience with your dog more enjoyable.

We are balanced trainers and utilize all four quadrants of operant conditioning as needed by each individual dog. We start our training in our home, in a very low distraction setting, so that we can build a bond and earn your dog’s trust. After your dog has learned all of the commands, we will work on adding duration, distance and distractions.

We will proof your dog’s training in high distraction settings in order to set them up for success in the real world! This program includes a prong collar (if needed) and an e-collar (Garmin or Educator Technologies). Dogs are conditioned on and trained with these tools.

Pricing: $3,500

*The price includes all training, care, transportation, training equipment, and lifetime support for you and the dog.
