ACC Board and Train Programs
If you have been putting off training your dog due to your busy schedule, wait no more! We have designed several complete dog-boarding-and-training programs for the busy dog owner. Our programs incorporate basic, intermediate or advanced obedience commands, dog manners and in-home lessons to be used for training and briefing (the in-home lessons do not come with Vacation Doggie School). And, like Vacation Doggie School boarding, your dog stays in a home with a trainer - not confined to a kennel run when they are not being trained.
All of our boarding and training programs come with a free pick-up and drop-off service, scheduled at your convenience. (Pick-up and drop-off does not include airfare or hotel stays. Some restrictions apply.) A pre-registration interview may be required, as well as proof of vaccinations.
Please contact us for more information and scheduling (Note: prices are subject to change without notice). Space is limited to a maximum of two dog boarding and training clients in a trainer's home at a time to allow the trainer to focus on your dog and his/her individual needs. Please note - our behavior modification training is only included with the Head Start and Intensive programs. It is important for owners to realize that not all behaviors can be redirected within a 14 day program and owner participation is mandatory for ANY training program to be effective.
Benefits of Private Training include:
Less wasted time
Faster results than group classes
Focus on what is important to you
The whole family can participate
Multi-tiered training and pricing to suit your needs
ACC Private Lessons
Private dog training lessons are available for owners that have a situation in which classes and/or boarding are not desirable to correct a training problem. We send an experienced trainer to your home to help you assess your training needs. Private dog training lessons normally last for one to one-and-a-half hours (for the first session) and cover many training issues. After your first lesson, your trainer will develop a tailored program for you and your dog. Generally private dog training can be accomplished in two to four training lessons, but the speed at which training moves is dependent upon owner attentiveness and ability to follow directions. Private dog training lessons are a great way to learn at your own pace and the one-on-one attention you receive allows you to quickly remedy any training problems. This service may include a travel fee.
If your training concerns cover behavior problems - anxiety, depression, chronic house soiling, aggression or sudden temperament changes - we have a canine behavior specialist on staff to address your needs. A canine behavior specialist has extensive knowledge of pack structure and dynamics, breed-specific behavior conservation issues and dog-to-dog language as well as the ability to evaluate your dog's needs.
Pricing begins at $75 an hour for private training (behavior training is a little more), though discounts will be given for booking multiple sessions. Clients who must cancel should do so 24 hours before the appointment time. Cancellations or no shows who do not fulfill this requirement will be billed for one hour of the trainer's time.
