You adore your dog, but let’s face it, life can get incredibly busy. Between work, family, and all your other responsibilities, sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to dedicate to training your dog. If this sounds like you, a board and train program might be the perfect solution. But how do you know if it’s the right fit for your dog?
For the time-pressed dog owner
First things first, board and train programs are not for everyone. If you’re someone who has the time and enthusiasm to be deeply involved in your dog’s daily training, exposing them to various distractions, and patiently teaching them the ropes, then a board and train might not be necessary.
However, if your schedule is packed, you have a bustling household with kids, or you simply can’t dedicate the time required for consistent training, a board and train program could be the ideal fit.
Emotional baggage detox
Another scenario where a board and train shines is when your dog has accumulated some emotional baggage. We all do it – we inadvertently pile our own emotions onto our dogs. It’s natural, but it can hinder their ability to learn effectively.
A board and train offers a fresh start. Your dog gets to spend time with a professional trainer who doesn’t carry any of that emotional baggage. This allows your dog to detox from the emotional clutter and focus on learning with a clean slate.
Perfect for long trips
Planning an extended family vacation or a long business trip? Instead of leaving your dog with Aunt Susie or at a standard boarding facility where they’ll mostly play, consider a board and train program. While you’re away, your dog can receive valuable training. It’s a fantastic opportunity to make the most of your time apart, ensuring your dog not only enjoys their time but learns valuable skills too.
At K9 Kamp, we offer expert board and train programs tailored to your dog’s unique needs. So, if you’re ready to give your dog a boost in their training journey, contact us today.
