What An Obedient Dog! offers boarding only for dogs who are in our obedience classes, in private training, or plan to take our training. We practice all the commands throughout the day. Since we are dog trainers, we do not encourage jumping and will work with your dog. There's playtime with other dogs with the same temperaments, including several potty breaks and walks throughout the day. We are different as we are personal and spend individual time with your dog. Our drop off and pick up times are flexible as long as you let us know the times. Our hours are 8:00am to 9:00pm, so you don't have to pay for an extra night if your flight gets in late. However, we cannot accept aggressive dogs! The cost is $35 a night and $20 a half day. On major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day), $5 is added. Please email for reservations. We fill up fast during holidays!!
Board & Training Program
What An Obedient Dog! offers a successful board and training program that takes place at our facility in Carrollton. Let us do all the hard work for you! You will bring home a calm, obedient dog after our 2-week board and training program is complete! When you pick up your dog at our facility, please plan to stay about an hour for your first follow-up training session where we coach you on everything we taught him. Then we will schedule a second follow-up session to be held in your home. All dogs must be 4 months or older with updated shot records, including their rabies shot to be eligible for the program. The cost for the 2-week board and training program is $1,190.
Our training is all positive dog training methods. We will train your dog with hand signals and body language, which is the way they know how to communicate. We DO NOT use punitive methods such as choke chains, prong collars, or shock collars. All of these methods make your dog fearful of you and break any bond that was already established. Dogs do not learn through pain, therefore, we praise and reward good behavior, and correct and redirect behavior we don't like, which is the only way for any new behavior to become successful and reliable.
Teaching "Leave It"
"Wait" until I say, "Take It"
The program includes all the basics: sit, release, watch me, down, come, stay with distance, stay with duration, leave it, drop it, wait and take it, walk nicely on a leash without pulling, and any other behavior issues as requested.
The cost for 2-week board and training is $85 a day, so 2 weeks is $1,190. This includes 2 follow-up one hour training sessions, one of which takes place when you pick up your dog at our facility at the end of the 2-week program. The other follow-up session takes place in your home 1 or 2 weeks afterwards to go over everything again, answer any questions that you have, and if he's ready, train for more distractions. We have a 1-week advanced board and training option for dogs who have graduated the initial 2-week board and training program, or if your dog has graduated any of our obedience classes. The cost is $85 a day, so 1 week is $595, which includes 1 follow-up session that takes place when you pick up your dog at the end of the program.
