BOARD & TRAIN
Commit to fun-filled boot camp for your dog
Your dog will appreciate two weeks of fun-filled activities and learning at our Delray and Royal Palm Beach locations. He will be trained, exercised, and socialized throughout the day until he is tired and happy.
We do not keep the dogs and puppies in our care in a kennel -- they live with us in our homes and join our pack. We take them with us on outings and treat them like one of our own.
The board and train experience
Each puppy boot camp experience begins with a phone interview and training overview and followed up with 60-90 minutes of instruction to make sure you know everything your dog knows -- and then some!
Puppy owners -- check out our Puppy Socialization Checklist. We promise to expose your puppy to everything on this list of puppy essentials, and more. Our Cues outlines the obedience commands your puppy will learn.
As part of our commitment to offering the best in professional dog care services, West Palm Dog is registered with the State of Florida, bonded, and insured.
What to expect
We recommend a 14-21 day stay for first-time clients. Repeat campers may choose fewer days, or combine training days with boarding days.
Extra services like swimming lessons are also available. Dog friendly chews like bully sticks and yak sticks may be purchased for quiet time.
You will receive daily video updates Monday-Friday before 8 pm during your dog's stay. You will receive a video link the first business day after your dog's check-in. Please check this link for updates so you can learn while your puppy does.
Puppies need to have had at least two sets of puppy shots and a clear fecal exam prior to beginning a board and train. We also require vaccination for Bordetella within six months of your dog's stay.
Your dog's success is contingent upon your consistent application of our recommendations when he returns home. These may include regular exercise, obedience practice, and participation in a dog sport or other activity. Service dog prospects may benefit from more than one boot camp to confirm obedience and task training.
What we need from you
Get yourself ready
Training you is as important to us as training your dog. The more you understand about how dogs learn, and how to speak dog, the better your relationship will be. Please read this page before your dog comes home.
