Frequently Asked Questions

Dog Behavior Training & Boarding

Dog behavior training is essential for pets. Not only does it encourage good behavior, but it saves you from trouble in the long run.
Below we answer some questions relating to dog training and behaviors.

  • Rabies – This vaccination must be renewed every 1 to 3 years.
  • Distemper/Parvo/Lepto – This vaccination must be renewed every 1 to 3 years.
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough) – This vaccination must be renewed every 6 months/1 year.
  • If vaccinations are renewed at the time of expiration, a 24/48 hour period waiting period is required prior to arrival at our location.

Absolutely. Large and small dogs usually learn by the same principles of attention with motivating learning methods. 

Basic dog training can help your small dog come out of aggression, marking problems, excessive barking, fear, and other behavior issues. The trainer can fine-tune training progressions to suit the needs of the smallest dogs. 

Just like learning a language takes practice, immersion helps the dog become fluent. After undergoing training for weeks, your small dog will take commands from you, require little control, and behave properly when called.

Yes, you can. Age itself doesn’t restrain learning in a canine, and we recommend dog training at all ages. If you have a puppy or a slightly mature dog, enlist for training sooner than later. 

A lack of training often leads to bad habits for the pet parents and the dog. Early training usually sets your dog for success rather than trying to modify bad behavior.

Yes, reinforcement with collars is a crucial aspect of any dog training program. Trainers, who use dog collars, can train more effectively and safely. 

After the training week, it will still be necessary for you to maintain your rules and boundaries within and outside of your home. 

Collars enable you and other pet owners to reinforce what the dog has learned in training until they become docile or fully obedient.
