About Our Immersion Board and Train Dog Training

Enroll your dog in the Immersion Board and Train program so they can learn while having fun. Your pup will stay with us Monday through Friday for two weeks (some circumstances may require additional time) where they will receive hands-on training from our certified dog trainers. We can even board your dog over the weekends if needed! To get the most out of this immersive program, it is only available for dogs six months and older.

This type of training opportunity allows clients to pass the responsibility of training over to our expert trainers and utilize their skills at a very high level.

All our Immersion programs include both private lessons and group training, so your furry friend will get a well-rounded training experience. You can feel confident that your investment in training will continue to pay dividends throughout your dog’s life.

Sit means sit has been the best dog training I have experienced. I have two polar opposite dogs – 1 happy go lucky golden and 1 not so friendly mini Aussie mix and SMS has really helped with how to deal with all different temperaments. We love coming every week to dog training as the trainers and dog handlers all love what they do!

Loved the puppy class! They keep the size of the class small. I’ve been to another puppy class company and they had way too many dogs! Also, they allowed supervised play time which really gave me confidence to have my puppies around other dogs. We’ll done trainers!
