Board and Train Program
Training while boarding is focused on the creation of a nurturing environment that will reassure your dog. We strive to earn your dog’s trust, build his or her confidence in unfamiliar resort surroundings, and create a lasting bond with your family pet. This approach provides your dog with the best opportunity to learn while boarding with us.
The primary focus of our board and train program is off-leash basic obedience, for example, walking off-leash or on a loose lead, sit, coming when called and place (boundary stay). However, we will also be happy to discuss other training goals you may have. Dogs will reach different levels of training depending on temperament and length of stay. Please contact us so we can discuss your training goals!
One-hour Session – $100
6-session Bundle – $500
Our trainer works one-on-one with you and your dog at our facility. This type of training is primarily for dogs who have already completed an off-leash basic obedience training program at Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort or at another facility. Or, you may just want to enjoy private dock dog training with your furry friend!
Please note Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort reserves the right to refuse service based on any pet’s temperament or health.
We welcome both dog owners and trainers to experience Immersion Training, the ultimate program to increase synergy between you, your dog, and our professional trainer. Rest and relax after a productive day of training in one of our luxury guest casitas then pick right back up the next day. Whether you’re a dog owner or trainer, traveling from out-of-state or living locally, our Immersion Training program is a rewarding option for those who want to get the most out of their training while removing the stress of travel and providing a consistent training environment for you and your dog.
