Boot Camp and Board & Train

If you’re like most of us, bringing a new puppy or adult dog into your home, is an exciting and fulfilling experience. But although it is exciting and fulfilling, it can also be very stressful! Since those first few weeks and months with your new dog are so vitally important, let K9 Principles Dog Training help take the stress out, and give you a sense of calm and confidence with your new arrival.

Enroll in our Doggy Boot Camp Training program. You’ll see how our K9 Principles Boot Camp gently and positively conditions your new canine companion (and you), turning our motto into reality: a lifetime of “peaceful living with your dog.”

K9 Principles  Boot Camp is a popular choice for busy working professionals and families looking for the best that dog training has to offer. Boot Camp is perfect for families who want the best for their dog but have little time to devote to the newest addition to the family. While you and your family are hard at work and school, we are too – training your dog in his or her own environment.

Boot Camp gives you the best results. Each day when you return home you will have a puppy or adult dog that is better behaved than the day before. Once your dog is comfortable and calm in your home, we then train your dog to behave well in public places. If you are looking for an intensive dog training experience, our Boot Camp is the way to

Your dog really wants to learn and make you proud. Boot camp is a fantastic way of helping your pet achieve his or her maximum potential. Each session is at least 75 minutes of intensive training, not including excursions, exercise, and extra TLC.

In addition, K9 Principles Boot Camp programs include educational materials and individualized training goals. We meet with you at the end of each week to share your dog’s “report card” and to pass along the lessons learned to family members. We pride ourselves in giving the best service at affordable prices. For rates, please contact us. Our packages are based on the number of sessions provided, with a minimum of five sessions. The more sessions you sign up for, the less it costs per session.

Want an Even More Intensive Educational Program?


With Board and Train, the K9 Principles Dog Trainer works with your canine companion. In between training sessions, your furry friend gets plenty of socialization with other dogs and has a warm comfortable place to sleep at night.

This is a great choice for training and boarding outside of your home. Your dog gets ongoing positive feedback as it accompanies the trainer throughout the day in a range of settings. Then your pooch bunks with us at night. Learning is fast and intensive. This has been a very popular choice with families that travel and can’t always bring their dog with them. And you come back to a more well-behaved companion!

Your dog learns everything that is learned in the boot camp setting while away from your home, and returns to you as a well-behaved model citizen. For rate packages please contact us. Board & Train packages are based on the number of sessions provided, with a minimum of seven and a maximum of 30. The more sessions you sign up for, the less it costs per session.
