Board & Train

In this board and train program, your puppy will stay and live with our senior training team, which includes our Training Director and Director of Operations. Creating a routine and developing obedience will be integral parts of this program.

Support & Cost

As part of this program, all owners will receive video updates and tutorials, along with the following:

  • 4-Weeks of Boarding & Training

  • Three private handover sessions.

  • One month attendance to group training.

  • Necessary training equipment.

  • Cost: $5,000

Drive Development & Exposure

Drive development is essential for bite work in protection training. Simultaneously, we expose our young dogs to various stimuli such as items, other animals, bicycles, children, and scenarios where they should not engage in bite work. This step is crucial in the development of all canine protectors.

Bitework & Control

This program heavily focuses on the bite training aspect of personal protection. We will follow a thorough sleeve-to-bite suit progression with your canine protector. Additionally, we will teach your young dog how to handle environmental stressors and scenarios to develop their confidence as a reliable protector. Simultaneously, we will work on developing the control necessary to handle these situations safely and reliably.
