DOG BOARD AND TRAIN

#1 Rated Dog Board and Train in Ohio

Ridgeside K9 Ohio’s Board and Train options are the most popular, efficient, and effective way to obtain world-class control and obedience on your house pet. Our Board and Train programs are the base of our dog training business at Ridgeside K9. We offer multiple board and train programs depending on your dog training needs, goals, and issues you may have. Each board and train program is customized for the individual dog. During our board and train programs, your dog is glued to its 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.

Why Puppy Boot Camp? 

Training young dogs is imperative to their long-term success. Before your puppy can be a well-balanced, well mannered adult you must build a solid foundation of confidence, focus and obedience. Our 2-Week Puppy Boot Camp provides all necessary elements to get your pup started on the right track. 

Obedience is every dog owner’s main concern. Your puppy must first learn HOW to learn. Each puppy will learn to focus with their trainer and build the habit of looking to a human for leadership and guidance. 

Exposure and Socialization with new people, places, sounds, smells, and dogs of all sizes and personality is also a key to success. If you would like your dog to remain obedient in a social setting with other dogs and strangers present, they must be desensitized to these scenarios. In addition, the ability to meet and play with other dogs in a polite manner starts in adolescence.

Crate training is the most important training you can do for your dog as a puppy. It aids in the success of potty training, helps to avoid the development of separation anxiety, and builds independence in teaching a calm state of mind while alone.

What the 2 Week Puppy Boot Camp Includes: 

This is a two week board and train in which your puppy lives with his/her assigned trainer. We teach your puppy how to learn & how to engage, using positive reinforcement, prong collar if needed. We teach basic obedience positions (come, sit, place, down, loose leash walking) and manners (jumping, barking, nipping, begging). Throughout the training your pup will have exposure to new environments, humans, dogs and children. While living with the trainer, the structure will organically improve crate training and potty training.

WHAT PUPPY TRAINING IS NOT:

Duration (stay) & distraction obedience. Adult level obedience. Off leash obedience.

UPON COMPLETION OF ANY TRAINING PACKAGE:

We will have a 2-3-hour lesson with you, this will include: Learning how and when to use your e collar. Learning about motivations and rewards, learning and giving new commands and communicating with clarity, correcting unwanted behaviors, reinforcing and rewarding desired behaviors and learning how to stay in control.

For dogs 6 months and older. Our day training program is held Mon-Fri for a set two week period. Drop off at our facility each day between 7am and 9am. Pick up between 3pm and 5pm. Each day your dog will work with our trainers on commands such as come, sit, down, place and heel and general “manners” (jumping, barking, nipping etc.) via our E collar training course. When you pick up each day a trainer will go over what was learned that day and send you home with homework. At the end of the two weeks you will have an official “go home” test out, and everything your dog has learned will be tested and worked through with you.

Two weeks are a good start to fundamentals, but for rehabilitation most dogs need 3-4 weeks depending on the severity of issues.This package is for dogs that have aggression, reactivity, and severe anxiety issues.  The same obedience commands in package A are included in this package, as well as training to manage anxiety and/or aggression issues. It’s important to note that not all dogs have the ability to be socially sound, and may need consistent management in order to successfully navigate life. Any additional time needed to accomplish our goals is included in the price. We are available for follow up as needed. This is an E collar training course.
