BOARD & TRAIN
Creekside’s board and train program is our most popular and effective training option. The board and train program is unique to Creekside focusing on both socialization and obedience. All board and trains stay at Creekside’s partner facility K9 Camp. K9 Camp is a day care and boarding facility with crate free options. During the day your dog will get to socialize with the day care pack. Creekside trainers will pull your dog for training sessions throughout the day. In the evening your dog will stay in the boarding room with the overnight staff. This room is set up like a living room so that your dog can work on their in-home skills. Then it’s lights out and time to rest up for the next day of training and social work.
Your dog’s entire stay is a controlled training experience, optimizing their time with us, in order to see the fastest and most effective results.
