Puppy Social Hours
Give your puppy the benefits of off-leash playtime in a safe, supervised environment for just $5 per session! You will learn how to safely supervise your puppy’s play, how and when to intervene if there is tension or escalation of the play and the basics of dog body language. Emphasis is placed on making sure each puppy has a positive experience playing with others. Puppies are matched by play style and shyer puppies are allowed to observe until they are ready to venture into the mix. Your puppy will go home enriched and tired!

Board & Train
Dogs who are accepted into a Board & Train live and train on our fully fenced acreage and typically stay for 1-3 weeks. While here, they experience an enriched environment, a health-giving routine, daily dog-dog play, high-level training, and field trips to trails and beaches.
With rare exceptions, only one dog is accepted into Board & Train at a time, and they enjoy all the privileges of resident status; a nice chew in the afternoon, belly rubs in the evening, and an overnight snooze in the master bedroom.
This in no way compares to traditional kennel boarding! Owners are provided with daily text check-ins, instructional videos, and a full orientation on how to maintain newly acquired skills and manners. The price of the Board & Train includes an initial consultation and a follow up home visit for Whidbey Island residents.
Board & Train: $200/day, minimum 7 days

Are you struggling with house-soiling, chewing, digging, leash walking, jumping up, dog-dog socialization issues, resource guarding, or just want a better recall? Maybe you’d like to learn how to effectively communicate with your dog, or you’d like to brush up on the basics, or teach him/her some fancy tricks. Training here at my facility or in your home (home visits for South Whidbey Island residents)
Initial consultation $100
Per session rate $80
Series of 4 sessions, $280
Series of 6 sessions, $420

Being in a social group is part of the fun of dog ownership! With just 4 dogs per class you’ll get plenty of individual attention AND you’ll learn from the group. Emphasis in the Basic Obedience classes for Puppies and Adults is placed on the foundational obedience behaviors sit, stand, down, stay, wait, leave it, recall, and loose leash walking. We will also talk about enrichment and living a more fulfilling life with your dog.
