“After spending $7,000 with various board and train programs, we were frustrated with our dog’s lack of progress. Now that Hank is home, he is finally the polite dog we knew he could be!” – Matthew Love
Are you headed out of town and want your dog to upgrade his manners while you’re away? Or perhaps you’d like to contract out the lion’s share of training to an expert? Either way, consider Board and Train!
Why Pavlov? There are a number of special aspects to Pavlov’s Board and Train Camp. First, Pavlov’s facility is located in the ideal training environment. Camp is one block from Ruby Hill Park, one block from the South Platte River, and one block from a residential neighborhood. Your dog will receive training walks in a neighborhood similar to yours – think pedestrians and dog walkers. Many dog training facilities are located in concrete jungles miles removed from residential neighborhoods. Consequently, they lack opportunities to train in environments that mirror your neighborhood with dog walkers, joggers, and squirrels. Your dog will train in an environment that is similar to your neighborhood.
Second, your dog’s day will be filled with structured walks, training sessions, and play groups three times a day. Your dog will benefit from social time with other dogs as well as individual attention. Finally, Pavlov’s training approach is a healthy hybrid of traditional and contemporary training. Consequently, your dog will excel quickly in learning new skills and stopping unwanted behaviors.

Board and Train Camp Agenda
- Obedience Lessons – walk politely on a leash, heel (walk to the left of your hip, stop when you stop, start with you stop), whoa (slow down), parallel sit, stay, come, no (stop doing that).
- Manners. Address jumping on people, barking, jumping on counter tops.
- Field trips to hiking trails and public parks.
- Video and/or photo updates twice a week, so you may admire your dog’s progress, and begin learning how to maintain the good stuff.
- Two to three private lessons are required to help you maintain your dog’s polite behavior.
I. On-leash Obedience (Obedience Level 1)
See the agenda items above. Solid training for all lessons inside, and on a leash outside.
II. Off-leash Obedience (Obedience Level 2)
Take your dog’s training off-leash, outside, and around real-world distractions. You and your dog will learn the skill of humane electronic collar training – the responsible and SAFE way to have your dog off-leash. An excellent program if you’d like to bless your dog with off-leash freedom on the hiking trail!
Typical programs are two weeks and cost $3000. If your dog is green to dog training, and you would like to progress your dog through both the on-leash and off-leash programs, we can accomplish both in three weeks for $4500. Commonly, the three weeks is divided into two different stays. For specific training objectives, we may propose a shorter program. A $700 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. The remainder of the first half is due at drop-off, and the second half is due at pick up.
