Board and Train
$150 / Dog / Day
We all dream of having the perfect dog - affectionate, well adjusted, obedient, and calm. We understand that sometimes, our best friend can display behaviors which are far from ideal. If you don’t have the time, energy, or expertise to curb your dog’s anxiety, fear or aggression, consider Kennel Club Boarding's Board and Train service.
Quick fixes are not our goal. We do not teach your dog tricks or cut corners. Our aim is to provide guidance to your dog to become a balanced, calm member of your family. The exact program that is best for you is determined through our Behavioral Assessment prior to boarding. Every program includes a follow up session at no charge, and we spend time with you when you pick up your dog to go through your dog’s progress, what needs to continue at home and possibly what needs to stop to ensure that you have a seamless transition back home. Dogs are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and we never have more than two Board and Train dogs at any time, so space is limited. Board and Train dogs spend their days with us, so we don't miss any opportunity to teach.
We will work together to determine what’s best for your dog.
Dog and Human aggressive dogs
We are one of the only kennels and training facilities to accept aggressive dogs in the Ottawa area. We work and own protection trained dogs, and through our experience training these dogs, can see through the barking, growling, and biting to identify the root cause of the dog’s aggression. Too often we are consulted by owners after they have worked with other trainers only to report that the aggression has gotten worse or has manifested in new situations. This is usually because only the symptoms were addressed, and nothing was done to identify or target the root cause of the dog’s behavior. We take our time to identify the dogs needs and correct the underlying issues which often leads to the aggression subsiding on its own. The result is a more balanced dog who thrives with you.
Typical situations and the time needed to rectify them:
Behavioral issues such as anxiety or over-assertiveness, aggression etc. usually can be addressed in 3 - 4 weeks.
Severe cases will take longer. times required will vary based on the issues present, temperament and ability of the dog to learn.
