The EPT 5 Week Board and Train offers intense training for dogs displaying more severe behavioral issues regardless of breed and age. Behavioral issues simply can be translated to resource guarding, aggression towards other dogs or humans, anxiety or nervousness and fear-based behavior.
Canines, like humans, might be displaying bad habits that just have not been consistently addressed and now are defined as behavioral issues. In our 5 Week Board & Train, we submerse your pup into 24-hour training where repetition is one of our learning tools. The 5-week program enables our trainers to train, observe, modify if needed and repeat training without interruption.
During the 5 weeks, we will also take your dog off-site to parks and public areas simulating life outside of our controlled environment at the ranch. During our evaluation, we will learn your goals and how you would like to integrate your dog into your lifestyle. Coffee shops, trail running, hikes, beach walks, dog parks, shopping, we will do our best to integrate our training into these environments for maximum training benefit.
Overnight boarding gives us the opportunity to train sleeping etiquette for dogs to master over the 5 weeks. Whether there are issues whining or barking at bedtime or crate training towards the end of the program, we can address them.
Board and Train is the best option for the busy professionals relieving you from the responsibility of initial training but at the same time incorporating you during the 5 weeks with training sessions. Included in our 5 Week Board & Train are three training sessions with you and your dog. The first is at the end of week 4 when we reunite you and your pup. This is a time we introduce you to the tools and how to continue the training at home at the end of the program. You will have firsthand experience with your pup at this training session. The second session training is at drop off. Ricky will personally bring your pup to your home for a 90 minute training session in your environment. The final session is a week following drop off to work out any issues you've encountered since drop off. Our goal is to set you up with the tools to succeed.

Our Hybrid Training Program combines our High-Level Obedience Training with the Board & Train program. This program provides the benefits of immersion training for 3 weeks but also give the parent(s) the opportunity to be an integral part of the training following the Board & Train.
The Hybrid Training Program begins with the 3 weeks of Board & Train with (3) one-on-one sessions with our trainer and the parent(s) and family. These sessions are strategically scheduled for integrating into the training program for maximum benefit. They are end of week 2, at drop off and one week after drop off.
Following week 2, we will reunite you and your pup, train you how to handle and continue successfully training at home. Homework will be given, and we are available via email or phone if any issues or questions arise in between sessions.
Drop off is a 90 minute session with Ricky at your home. The is highly beneficial to for us to see firsthand how the dog reacts once back in the home environment.
The final one-on-one session is one week after drop-off.
This enables us to learn the successes and difficulties encountered during the week.
While your pup is with us:
The Hybrid Training program is not designed for pups that are displaying severe behavioral issues. Severe behavioral issues need more than three weeks of immersion training; anything less is setting your pup up for failure. The program consists of 3 consecutive weeks of board & train, three one-on-one training sessions, including drop off at your home with you and your pup, plus a training manual.
