Dog Board and Train Camp


Struggling to get your dog to listen?  

Let us give your dog the skills to understand and respond to you – even around distractions.  Camp style learning at our over 6 acre farm in Perkasie jump-starts your dog’s training in a fun and interactive learning environment.  Daily videos help you follow along your dog’s training journey and learn how to reinforce training at home for a lifetime of good behavior.

How Board and Train works:

Our training camp is the only of its kind in Pennsylvania.  Your dog stays on our 6+ acre farm in Perkasie, PA for a fun but intensive learning experience

Our team of certified dog trainers will work with your dog each day to teach important skills and manners focused on improving their behavior. 

  • We provide the most one on one instruction of any board and train program out there with a minimum of 5 training sessions each day.
  • We maintain a maximum 3 dog per 1 trainer ratio for more attention per dog and better results
  • More sessions means your dog has more successful repetitions of good behavior creating more muscle memory and better transfer of good behaviors to the home environment. 
  • You are an important part of the learning process!  Get daily and weekly summary videos so you know exactly how to work with your dogs like our trainers do. 

Our typical day starts at 7am with potty time and feeding breakfast to the dogs who stay overnight. Our team gets right to work on training sessions for your dog which run from 8am – 4pm daily.  

During this time your dog will receive 5+ training sessions that typically range from 10-20 minutes each.  After 4pm, the boarding dogs get walked and fed before having some down time between 5:30pm and 8:30pm. 

Final potty and play time starts at 8:30pm for a good night’s rest before the next day.  

The owners live on property so there is 24/7 care and monitoring to keep the dogs safe and happy.
