Board And Train Programs

At Christian K-9 Academy, we offer a variety of Board and Train programs to help you achieve your dog training goals.

Our Board and Train Programs are ideal in a number of situations. Perhaps you have a puppy who needs to learn its basic obedience commands, or maybe your dog has a behavioral issue which requires a resolution. You may simply crave the off-leash control of your dog that you have always dreamed of. No matter what your dog training goals are, our expert team of professional trainers at Christian K-9 Academy is here to help you!

These programs are also a great option if you live a busy lifestyle and are unable to find the time for private lessons in your home. With our Board and Train programs, all you need to do is drop your dog off at our training facility, and then pick them up at the conclusion of their program! We also provide regular updates and photos of your dog’s progress throughout the duration of their stay with us. 

When you pick your dog up, we will spend time reviewing their progress and teaching you how to maintain their behaviors. This is the most important part of the Board and Train process. It ensures that you will be able to maintain your dog’s training when they return home. We also offer unparalleled follow-up support – once you return home with your pup, we are only a call or text away if you have any questions.

We offer four Board and Train programs at Christian K-9 Academy. Click below for more details of each program.

10 Day Board and Train

Our 10 Day Board and Train program focuses on getting your dog to learn the fundamentals of dog training.

During your dog’s 10 Day Board and Train program, we will shape them into the dog you know they can be. We start by using our marker/clicker training to teach your dog to perform behaviors, followed by proofing those behaviors around distractions.

Your dog will learn the following commands: 

  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Heel
  • Down

In this program, we will also eliminate minor behavioral problems such as pulling on the leash, jumping on people, and biting/nibbling. This is an on-leash course only; our 10 Day Board and Train program is not suited for off-leash problem behaviors such as counter surfing, digging, excessive barking, reactivity, etc. (instead, check out our off-leash training included in our 15 Day program!).

How It Works

Overview

To schedule your dog for an evaluation, you need to set up a Gingr account. Once your profile is created via the app or website portal, you will be able to set up the evaluation with us.

Don’t worry – we will work with your separation anxiety too! During the program we will send you weekly updates to keep you informed of your dog’s progress. 

After the training program is complete we will train you and teach you everything you need to know and how to handle your newly trained dog. This is the most important part of the program.

We will teach you:

  • How to maintain the behaviors we taught.
  • How to teach new behaviors and get rid of bad ones.
  • Break bad habits you have as an owner.

If any problems persist after the program we will work with you in your home if you are local to Columbus (in home visits on the west side of Columbus only).

Cost and Payment

$2095

Includes equipment 

Only $200 deposit required to schedule spot. Remaining balance is due half way through program. 

If for any reason we cannot make any progress with your dog, we will not charge the remaining balance and find alternate ways to train you and your dog.

15 Day Board and Train

Our 15 Day Board and Train program is ideal for dog owners who are looking to unlock the true potential of their dog. 

During your dog’s 15 Day Board and Train program, they will stay with us at our facility and become a part of our Christian K-9 family. We begin by using our marker training to teach the behaviors, before proofing those behaviors they learned around distractions.

Your dog will learn the following obedience commands/behaviors (all off-leash!): 

  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Heel
  • Down
  • Recall

Stressful dog walks will be a thing of the past! Your dog will walk next to you, off-leash, and will automatically sit when you stop during walks. They will sit and wait at doors until you call them to go.

Our 15 Day Board and Train program is best suited for dogs who are social and confident. If your dog exhibits behavioral issues such as fearfulness, aggression, or reactivity towards dogs and/or other people, then our 20 Day Board and Train program would be a better option.
