Customized Board & Train

Personalized dog training for you and your family

The Canine College Board & Train Program is a results-oriented dog-friendly stay, learn and play program. It is available for dogs who are enrolled in any of our Training Programs prior to their boarding event. While your dog boards with us, we will continue to train them in the customized training program you and our training team designed prior to the boarding event. We do not offer Board & Train for dogs that are not enrolled in our program prior to the boarding event.

We do not require a “specific period of time” your dog “must” be with us either – are you going away for a few days and want us to “work on one or two things” you’d like your dog to learn? Perhaps you have a longer vacation/travel event and want us to work in some customized training … That’s our specialty!

We cannot say this often enough – we are a dog friendly force free training facility which means we do not use electric collars aka “remote collars” or “e-collars”. We offer a training methodology that reinforces and builds your positive relationship with your dog for longer lasting results.

Let Us Do the Work For You!

Our highly trained and knowledgeable Dog Trainers work with your furry student several times per day while you do what it is you need to do. We will communicate with you via texts, e-mails, Facebook photos and posts.

This is a results-oriented, dog-friendly training program. Your dog will experience Canine College’s unique approach to training by developing a personalized plan that is effective but also fun while we train and shape unwanted behaviors through positive reinforcement. We do NOT use Electric Collars (known as Remote Training Collars). Canine College’s training methodology rewards positive behavior and emphasizes dog–friendly training practices.

Want to discuss our customized programs with our trainers? No problem – Give us a call today (248) 427-8245 or fill out our evaluation form and one of our training team will be in touch with you.


Complete the questionnaire and our trainers will contact you to arrange a Professional Training Evaluation and provide advice and guidance to get your dog started on the path to just the obedience training he/she needs. Be honest with this inquiry form and do not be embarrassed to answer “yes” or add behaviors to this form. Please fill out one form for each dog that you would like us to evaluate.

    We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your dog and help make living together as delightful as it can be!

    We will email you but in the rare case we'd like to ask a few questions, what is the best time for us to reach you by phone?



    How long have you owned your dog?

    Where was this dog acquired?

    How many people live in your home?

    How many children?

    Children's Ages

    Part of our training may include teaching your dog to enjoy his or her own space for “quiet time” in a crate. Is there anything you would like us to know about your dog’s present reaction to being crated?

    Is your dog crate trained?

    Does your dog chew bedding while in crate?

    Home Alone

    Door Manners

    Leash Walking

    Possessive Behaviors

    Miscellaneous Behaviors

    Is there anything else we should know about your dog that we did not discuss during the evaluation, or over the phone? Any information you can give us will help with the training program.

    Not everyone has time to personally train their dog. Are you seeking to have professionals like us work with your dog privately, or do you prefer to participate by attending group classes?

    Please tell us what you would like to see – what are the ideal behaviors? If we were to meet 6 months from now, what would you like your dog’s behavior to be like?
