Board & Train Services

At Natural Instinct Dog Training we will always recommend you try in home training first as we believe the owner’s participation in training plays a vital role in building the best owner-dog relationship. However, there may be some circumstances where your dog coming to stay with our training team full time can lay a foundation for challenging behaviors that bridges the gap between dog and owner and carries over into the home with supportive private sessions. Below is an outline of the board and train programs we currently offer. Please note: these programs are meant to serve as an overview for clients to understand the programs and options available. Every dog and client is unique and each board and train program is customized for the individual needs of the dog and client. Feel free to contact us for more information on any of these programs or for a customized plan for the issues that are important to you.

Aggression Issues

Our approach helps dogs feel more safe and less threatened by stimuli and can help your dog to understand and process triggers in a more appropriate and manageable way.
