Dog Board and Train

Stay and Train

Get Started

If your dog is staying here for daycare or boarding, you should consider our "Stay and Train" service. Our trainer will work on behaviors with your dog while it is staying with us, in order to help put in the repetitions needed to achieve success.

For example, if you need to work on leash walking, our trainer can take your dog for walks around the neighborhood, using effective rewards and handling techniques.

In addition, let's say your dog was exhibiting unwanted behaviors while playing with dogs at the park. The trainer could monitor your dog while here in group play, so he can watch for the behavior and try to correct it.

Once you return back to Tucker Pup's, the trainer can discuss with you how your dog is progressing and what adjustments you should make, so you can continue the training at home.

This does not imply that we will magically change your dog overnight. However, it can be very helpful if you are working on a behavior and just need your dog to get more practice. You must remember that YOU are the most important factor for your dog's success going forward, so if you don't change your handling techniques based on the trainer's advice, your dog will likely revert back to bad habits quickly. That is why our trainer will speak with you about what was accomplished and how to make adjustments that work well.

The price for our Stay and Train program is $50 per dog per day, with a one-hour limit per day. While here for a boarding stay, you could request it for as few or as many days as you like, either consecutive or not.

Reservation Required
Stay and Train is subject to availability and is based on reservations. If you have an upcoming boarding visit and want to add it, we strongly encourage you to do so in advance.

Weather Dependent
Certain exercises in our Stay and Train program, such as leash walking, are best addressed outside, so are subject to the weather. If you request outdoor exercises and the weather doesn't allow for them to happen, we would likely not be able to fulfill your request and you would not be charged.
