Dog Board & Train Programs
When your dog stays with Furever Pet Care in a board and train session, we will be working on behavioural elements such as structured (no pull) walking, socialization, and calm crating. We will also be building foundation behaviours via cues such as watch/focus, leave/drop, recall, sit, lie down, stay and recall. If there are cues or behaviours you require specific to your family lifestyle we can incorporate them into the curriculum.
Once your dog has completed a board and train program, we will spend a time together with the dog and the whole family in a de-briefing session. We will also be setting your home up for the dogs continued success. You are entitled to a free session of training following the de-briefing session. I am available for unlimited phone and email support for the month following the stay. Ongoing support is only offered to families who continue with the training once the dog goes home and follows our recommendations.
Once your dog has completed a board and train program with Furever Pet Care, you will have the opportunity to use us for additional structured boarding or daycare. We strongly encourage families to plan to undertake formal training in a dog school practicing positive reinforcement or balanced training methods. You are not in any way obligated to come to the school where I teach, but know that I do also teach at professional dog school Unleashed Niagara.
Dog Play & Train Sessions
Dog Play & Train sessions allow pet parents to drop off their dog at my home on a designated day and time. The dogs are trained according to a pre-approved training plan, which could include time on leash and off leash, being around or playing with other dogs. The training plan is unique to each guest dog. I arrange each session with select dogs to ensure compatibility and enrichment. It gives the participating dogs socialization time to hone their dog behaviour skills under my dog training supervision. Sessions are 30 to 90 minutes in duration, bookings are required in advance, and rates are set according to the training plan. More details about Furever Pet Care dog socials here.
Pet Sitting services bring the caregiver into the pet owner’s home or farm during their family’s time away. We do not offer Pet Sitting services at this time. However we do have trusted colleagues who we are pleased to refer.
We can pick up or drop off a pet to make things easier for owners. This is an add-on to our dog boarding service only; contact us for rates.
