Board & Train

Our Board & Train Programs are an intense lifestyle training program, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week at our training center. The programs are designed to give your dog a strong head start by removing bad habits, assuaging anxiety and fear issues, and putting a strong routine into place for both dog and owner.

In the Board & Train programs, your dog will be trained by our head trainer Jon, as well as trainers Brittney and Jordan.

The Solid K9 Training facility is highly secure, staffed 24 hours a day, and monitored by video surveillance and fire detection.


Three Week Behavior Modification Board and Train

3 WEEK | $3500

The above Board & Train prices do NOT include the cost of an e-collar. If you need to purchase an e-collar, we are happy to provide an Educator E-collar on the first day of Board & Train. The e-collar cost ranges from $199 to $329, depending on the model your dog needs. Additional weeks are available at $600 per week, for 3 week and 5 week Board and Trains.

This program is designed for dogs that are NOT human or dog aggressive or that have high levels of fear and anxiety as that takes longer to work with.

All of our programs are as much about behavior rehabilitation, as they are about obedience commands. So many dogs are great at obedience, but they cannot hold a command around basic distractions. So many dogs have great obedience, but they do not have a calm state of mind. It is so important for us and the dog, that we are able to work with the dog on these issues.

The biggest thing we will work on is having a calmer dog that listens better and is not reactive to all of the environmental stimulants around your home and in the world. With that starting theory, we are able then train your dog on the obedience commands that you are looking for. We look at dog training as a lifestyle and not a series of tricks, our training and rehab program becomes part of your lifestyle.

As far as obedience we work on the following with your dog:

  • Walking properly on a leash without pulling, barking, lunging, sniffing, or reacting to dogs and/or distractions
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Place command
  • Correcting bad behaviors – jumping up on people, jumping on countertops, mouthing, nipping, chasing, playing keep-away
  • Recall training (with and without distractions)
  • Separation Anxiety (some separation issues need a longer program)
  • Crate Nonsense (barking, whining, etc.)
  • Heeling properly on leash and eliminating leash reactivity (some intense leash reactivity needs a longer program)
  • Building confidence with your dog so you get a better off well mannered dog.
  • Calm on Command training – having your dog be calm in all situations, without him/her having to be worn out with hours of walking/play time
  • Leadership skills with your dog so your dog understands proper pack order with humans, eliminating a lot of pushy behavior dogs have. This is also great for nervous fearful dogs.
  • Work with your dog on the anxiety and fear that is driving most unwanted behaviors

All Board and Train programs include six hours of private one-on-one training. The six hours includes two,  two-hour training sessions at the completion of the program. You also receive two one-hour follow-up sessions to be scheduled at the owner’s and trainer’s discretion. All training sessions take place at our training center in Providence, RI.For clients who have completed our Board & Train program and are interested in further training opportunities, one-hour training sessions are available at $75 per hour.

IMPORTANT
Board and Train dogs will be picked up & dropped off by the client (owner).

5 Week & 8 Week Board & Train – Intense Aggression Behavior Modification

5 Weeks | $4500

8 Weeks | $5900

The above Board & Train prices do NOT include the cost of an e-collar. If you need to purchase an e-collar, we are happy to provide an Educator E-collar on the first day of Board & Train. The e-collar cost ranges from $199 to $329, depending on the model your dog needs.  Additional weeks are available at $600 per week.

This program is designed for dogs that are exhibiting intense dog aggression, fear aggression, human aggression, and biting. We are extremely well known for working with extremely challenging dogs, in fact no dog has ever been turned away from our program because of a bad/dangerous/unwanted behavior. We deal with dogs who have bitten children and adults, as well as dogs who have gotten into dog fights. Working with aggression is not like working on an obedience command, it is much more intense work, takes much longer, is much more dangerous for the staff and the staff dogs and takes multiple trainers working with the dog for safety.

How far can your dog go in a longer program? That is a great question and has lots of variables, during and after the training. It is our goal to get as far as we can with your dog while he/she is with us. Our goal is always to be able to get a dog to exist around people and dogs. As far as how much interaction they can have, we will not know until we start working the dog. We will always give you an honest assessment during and after training of what your dogs immediate limitations will be. The great thing is when you follow through with our training program (you get 6 hours of 1/1 training with us) each day/week/month just keeps getting better and better with you and your dogs behavior.

Using our low-level, communication-style remote collar training, dogs in the Intense Aggression Behavioral Modification Board and Train will learn the following:

  • Walking properly on a leash without pulling, barking, lunging, sniffing, or reacting to dogs and/or distractions
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Place command
  • Correcting bad behaviors – jumping up on people, jumping on countertops, mouthing, nipping, chasing, playing keep-away
  • Recall training (with and without distractions)
  • Separation Anxiety (some separation issues need a longer program)
  • Crate Nonsense (barking, whining, etc.)
  • Heeling properly on leash and eliminating leash reactivity (some intense leash reactivity needs a longer program)

  • Leadership skills with your dog so your dog understands proper pack order with humans, eliminating a lot of pushy behavior dogs have. This is also great for nervous fearful dogs.
  • Work with your dog on the anxiety and fear that is driving most unwanted behaviors
  • Dog Aggression issues – attacking dogs, biting dogs, improper greeting and social skills
  • Human Aggression Issues
