Want the results you would get from our intensive Board and Train program without sending your dog away from home? Our Day School program is the perfect way to give your dog a jump-start in their training. This is a 3 week program. Your dog will spend 4 days a week working with a professional trainer learning the ins and outs of obedience training, good manners and social skills and enjoy their evenings and weekends at home with their family. Owners will receive a private lesson at the end of each week to learn how to practice with their dog and reinforce what they learned. 

Day School is ideal for dogs that benefit from more 1-on-1 professional trainer time and for owners who are committed to their dog’s training and will be able to follow through and reinforce what their dog learns. This program is designed for puppies 5 months or older, adult dogs and newly adopted dogs.  This is a complete obedience program and your dog will be fully off-leash trained. Let Lead the Way K9 Training give your dog the jump-start training to be the best dog he can be and we’ll give you the tools, knowledge, and support to get the most out of your dog.
