Board & Train Plans
“If you are troubleshooting with your dog, and don’t have the time or resources to train them, send them to the farm! I’ll train them for you, then teach you to maintain and improve the skills they’ve learned.” – Zoe Payne

We recommend this training plan for dogs of any age that need some touch up training or a solid start to reliable obedience in public.

4 Week Plan
What will my dog learn?
Starting with some basic obedience commands and addressing poor habits in the first week, exposure to household and public environments in the second week, and lots of opportunities to practice and challenge their skills in the last two weeks; your dog will learn how to be more confident, reliable, and trustworthy. This training plan is very useful for addressing dogs with “problems” like aggression, anxiety, reactiveness, and hyper activeness.

Additional Information for Board & Trains
In order to secure your place on the schedule, you will need to pay a deposit. We can have up to 3 dogs at a time, and unless the season is slower, you should expect to schedule your pup’s stay at least 3 weeks in advance.
Drop off time is between 10am and 12pm on the scheduled day. Please be ready to supply your dog’s food, a bowl, and a scoop, as well as proof of up to date vet records. At this time, you can give Zoe a list of training struggles and/or goals if needed. (this will help Zoe better personalize your dog’s experience)
Weekly visits from the owners are encouraged for all Board & Train pups. These 30 minute sessions will need to be scheduled with Zoe directly, and can be in town or at the farm.
Pick-up should happen between 10am and 12pm on the scheduled day. When you arrive for pick-up, you’ll need to plan on being there between 30 to 90 minutes in order for you to now learn about all that your pup has learned and how to maintain/advance their new behaviors, skills, and habits.
