Board & Train

Transforming Your Dog’s Behavior with Board and Train Dog Training

At Tropical Dog Training, we understand that one of the biggest obstacles in dog training is achieving consistent behavior at home with their owner. With busy schedules, it can be challenging to maintain a structured training routine. That’s why we offer board and train services, where your dog will receive consistent and effective training from our experienced trainers. By entrusting your dog to our professional facility, you can eliminate the frustration and stress of trying to train a wild dog on your own.

Our goal is to transform your dog into an obedient and well-behaved family companion. With our board and train program, we take the guesswork out of dog training and provide a reliable solution for busy dog owners. Contact us today to learn more about our board and train services and how we can help you and your dog succeed.


Every Dog Has Its Day 

At Tropical Dog Training, we understand that every dog is unique and has different training needs. That’s why we offer two specialized training programs to meet your specific requirements. Our first program is in-home training, where our friendly trainers will come to your home and work with your dog in their familiar environment. But for those who prefer a more hands-off approach, we have our board and train program. 

This program is designed for the busy individual who wants the professional trainer to do the work for them. We will pick up your dog from your home and bring them to our air-conditioned facility for three weeks of intensive training. During this time, your furry friend will have access to a large fenced-in turf grass play area, daily walks for exercise, and daily training sessions with our highly skilled trainers. We follow head trainer Steve’s unique method, called “Positive E-forcement,” to engage your dog in fun and games while teaching them obedience commands with lots of love.

Long-Term Success of Sustained Trained Behaviors 

One of the main benefits of our board and train program is that we are not only teaching your dog to perform behaviors but also proactively instructing persistent good behaviors. We do this by providing a comprehensive initial consultation before your dog’s training begins. During this consultation, we will get to know you and your dog, your goals and expectations, and your dog’s specific quirks and issues. Based on this information, we will create an individualized training plan for your dog to ensure that they receive the most successful training experience possible.


Comprehensive Training Approach

After three weeks of intensive training, your dog will have learned all the necessary obedience commands, including: 

  • Sit 
  • Lie Down 
  • Come
  • Wait
  • Heel
  • Place
  • Off

In addition to standard obedience cues, your dog will learn appropriate behaviors to replace unwanted behaviors such as: 

  • Nuisance Barking
  • Jumping 
  • Chewing
  • Escaping
  • Stealing 
  • Pulling On The Leash

Our trainers also work on more advanced skills, such as off-leash obedience and behavior around distractions. This comprehensive approach to training ensures that your dog is not only well-behaved but also well-rounded and adaptable in different situations.
