If you’re planning an out-of-town trip and in need of dog boarding, give some thought to sending your four-legged family member to a dog board-and-train program instead.
Dog boot camp costs more than boarding, but depending upon the facility you choose, the difference in price may not be all that significant. Plus, while you’re away, your pooch will be learning valuable skills and having a lot of fun. Why not come home to a happy, well-behaved pet?
Finding a Reputable Dog Boarding Facility
Board with some kennels, and your furry friend will be confined most of the time – unless, that is, you shell out extra cash for daily walks and outside play.
That isn’t always the case, of course. Excellent boarding facilities can be found, but to do so, you may have to do a good deal of searching. And once you locate a reputable facility in your local area, you’ll likely see that their fees aren’t that far off from the cost of enrolling in a dog boot camp program.
Advantages of a Dog Board-and-Train Program
If you’re in need of dog boarding, you’re already budgeting for the expense. And since you’re going to spend the money anyway, putting it toward dog boot camp makes better sense.
Boot camp includes boarding, and while at the facility, your pooch will be cared for by a professional trainer. That not only ensures the safety of your beloved pet, but also allows them plenty of opportunity to learn new skills.
Training typically focuses on socialization, obedience and good behavior – and you can also ask the trainer to work on other goals at boot camp, such as housebreaking, walking on a leash and crate training. Some programs, including those at iWorkDogs Dog Training Company, welcome pets that are fearful, aggressive or have other behavioral problems.
