At Canine Connection, we feel like we have developed the best board and train programs for you and your dog. We primarily use positive reinforcement and rewards based training methods, which means you don't have to worry about us using harsh or heavy handed tools and techniques on your dog. Rewards based training focuses on rewarding the dog for the good choices they make and helping them to continue to make good choices over time. We are the only facility in Utah County, and one of the only facilities in Utah, who primarily practices positive reinforcement and rewards based training.
Another area where we excel in our program is in making sure that you, the owner is involved in the training process every step of the way. Every program that we offer includes a weekly training session with you, your dog and one of our trainers. This is to help you see the progress your dog is making, allows you to learn the techniques we are using, and also gives you time to spend with your dog and see how well we are taking care of them. No other board and train program offers this service.
The last thing that really sets us apart from the others is our follow up system. When your dog comes to us for a board and train program, we understand the financial investment that you are making. We won't try and sell you on a quick fix using a painful or psychologically damaging tool, we are honest and upfront in telling you that training is a life time commitment and something that needs to continue after the board and train ends. That is why we offer a series of Follow Up Training Sessions and Group Classes, as well as Unlimited Socialization Classes to all of our clients who put their dog through one of our amazing board and train programs.
When you schedule your board and train program, please schedule their start day to be on a Friday. This allows your dog a full weekend to decompress and adjust to their new environment.
