  • 1 hour of dedicated training each day, Monday – Friday.
  • Daily email updates on your dog’s training progress.
  • Daycare play Monday – Friday if your dog qualifies, OR an hour of Tummy Rub Cub Monday – Friday.
  • A Spa Bath with our groomers before departure.
  • 1 free private training session following the boarding school stay. For those outside the Indy Metro area, arrangements can be made for private sessions in-house at pickup.

Boarding School guests may bring 2 of their favorite toys, and food/treats in a sealed container. (Right now, we ask that you not bring your own bedding due to COVID safety protocols, but a raised bed will be provided.) Drop-off is Sunday (12-1 or 4-5pm) and pick-up Saturday (8-10am or 3-5pm). If you require different accommodations, please inquire at the time of enrollment before processing payment.

Due to the nature of boarding, this program is not be suitable for dogs with separation anxiety / aggression / reactivity issues. If you are experiencing these types of issues with your dog, please contact our trainers to discuss your training needs.
