Group, Private or Board &Train- What Should I Choose?This is something you have to determine after assessing your situation closely. Group Classes - We HIGHLY recommend this for young puppies (younger than 5mo) to not only gain exposure at an early age, but also prevent common mistakes we see clients make. Great for On Leash and Off Leash Clients as well who have enough time to dedicate to training everyday (15-30 minutes x 2 times a day) - ALL of the results are made at home. Private Training - Great for folks who cannot commit to the same time every week (work schedules) and recommended for folks who learn better 1-1. You will miss out on the dog socialization and exposure portion, however, our trainers can bring out their demo dogs if need be. Prepare to dedicate training time at home everyday (15-30 mins x 2 times a day) Board & Train - Recommended for busy individuals who find it tough to carve out time during the day to train with your dog. (Let us do all the hard work for you), However, please be advised, you will have to follow instructions when you get your dog back home, it is a lot easier to enforce on a known behavior's than to teach those behavior's.
