Board & train is an option for those who want to put their dog’s development, obedience and confidence in the express lane under the care of our qualified trainers.

Your dog will be staying at the amazing Hedgegrove Boarding Kennels and will receive several training sessions per day. The dog’s behaviour and progression is assessed daily and training adjusted to suit.

Designed for dogs of varying age, breed and temperament, whether it be for some basic training of obedience, specialty skills, assistance work or rehabilitation for mild to severe behaviour issues.

Each dog receives a handover appointment at the end of their stay to give you all the information and empowerment needed to continue their training at home. Your dog will also receive a free hydro-bath before returning home.

Check out our ‘Board & Train’ YouTube playlist of some of the fun we have had with our past guests!

Board & train is not suitable for those who cannot continue the dog’s training and development after the package is complete. These programs are not suited for those having behavioural issues specific to your home environment and it is only designed to begin addressing behavioural issues, there is no “quick fix” in rehabilitation. Canine Connect may require you to attend a mandatory assessment appointment to decide if your dog is suitable for these programs.
