We offer in-home boarding for puppies and dogs who have taken our classes and/or consultations, or who are dog friendly (social) and people friendly. For dogs who have not taken any Gentle Puppy Training courses, an assessment of the dog’s canine social skills is required prior to any long stay.( mandatory).
The Gentle Puppy Training sanctuary & boarding resort is a unique setup that has your dog on our property and in our home with our family. It is an exceptional learning experience for dogs of every age, especially puppies! Every dog is given a comfortable den (crate) in the dog room ( h in the house), to relax and sleep in during naptime and through the night. Click here to see more photos of the resort.
Your dog’s time is spent either in the house with us or outside in a large fenced, covered play area with doggie friends! A special attention is given to down time /naps for each puppy & dog to prevent extra fatigue, over stimulation , grumpiness that can lead to aggression , Puppies and dogs can relax and sleep in their individual den in the dog room in the house. Your dog should not come home exhausted but rather calm, happy and thinking about the GREAT TIME he/she had!
