Training for You and your dog

In-Home Sessions + Board & Train


When I met Sara, my self confidence was at an all time low and my anxiety was through the roof. Because of this, Willow began to lunge at people, animals, and even bit a few people, including me. Because of Sara, Willow no longer bites or lunges and I am smiling and laughing more and have a whole new outlook on life.

*Each dog and owner/handler is unique and requires a different set of skills, commands, and lifestyle changes. Therefore, the price and number of board & train days will be decided after the consultation.*




Phase 1: You and your family will meet one-on-one with your trainer for the first 2 sessions, coaching you through each step and addressing issues and questions on the spot. All that is required is weekly attendance and simple homework assignments.

Phase 2: After the 2nd lesson, your dog will join us at Bakers Acres for the board and train portion. Our guests learn essential life skills, socialization etiquette, the “language” of the remote collar and off leash reliability.

Phase 3: The remaining 3 sessions are to bring together all that you and your dog have learned over the course of the program and get your dog fully obedient, whether inside the house or outdoors on a hiking adventure.

Final Exam: Your final exam will take place on a Saturday morning (TBD) at Bakers Acres where you and your dog will be able to practice all that you have learned in a safe, socialization yard, around distractions and with your fellow students and previous alumni.

Bonus: You’ll have access to your trainer throughout the training process (via Marco Polo or Facebook Messenger) for the purpose of reviewing homework assignments and answering follow-up questions.

Graduation Perks: Upon successful completion, you'll have access to aftercare support with up to 2 house calls after training as well as unlimited email contact. Don’t forget our PERKS! Your dog will now be eligible to join our VIP Daycare & Boarding programs. 


Distance an issue? Or have a tight budget?


Sky has become the best possible dog. He hasn’t eaten his bed in over a year. He is great and very patient with kids. And he goes on hikes up Šmarna Gora with me. Thank you for all the advice!
