Build Foundations & Boost Training

Puptopia offers unique, in home board and train with our Head Trainer and Behavior Consultant Kristen Studioso. Each stay is custom tailored to your pup’s specific training goals, whether basic obedience or more involved behavior issues like lunging and barking. All board and train programs include photos and video of training, a private in home session to help transition back to your home life, and phone and email support.

Short stay board and train programs (minimum of 5 days) are great for when you’re looking to jumpstart learning or want to give your pup a paw up while you’re out of town. Longer stays (2+ weeks) are ideal for building solid behavior foundations from scratch or when dealing with behavior issues. Think this might be for you and your pup? Check out more details below!

Is Board & Train for you?

A board and train program can be a huge asset in a pup’s training or behavior modification program. Although we’ll plant a solid foundation and give you all the tools you need for when your pup goes home, a board and train program can’t ‘fix’ or completely train your pooch. Once your pup goes home the hard work is up to you to continue your pup’s education and to keep them sharp. Of course, we’ll be there every step of the way to assist with private training sessions, detailed written homework, instructional videos, and trainer assistance as needed.
