Dog Squad Behavioral Board and Train

Have you ever dreamed of walking your dog off leash? Will your dog come when you call them…every time? Think of how helpful it would be if your dog laid down when you asked, and stayed put until you released them? How nice would it be to stop jumping, nipping, aggression, barking and other nuisance behaviors in their tracks? Dog charging the front door? Not anymore.

Owners who are fortunate enough to enroll their dogs in Dog Squad’s Behavioral Board & Train program are amazed at the dog’s transformation.

Obedience Blaine-Kennels-Dog-Squad_Obedience-icon

Our unique, custom approach to obedience training allows a level of communication and understanding that you won’t get with other training methods. We will give you a happy, reliable, and obedient dog that can be included in all of your everyday activities.

Problem Behaviors Blaine-Kennels-Dog-Squad_problem-behaviors-icon

All dogs are unique, but their problem behaviors are not. Our dog trainers are all experienced in nearly every problem behavior and will work specifically with your dog to correct their behavior.

Are you afraid your dog will take off the moment they are off the leash? That is very common, but our instructors are experts at training and working with dogs so that they remain calm and patient when their leash is taken off.

what to expect

What to Expect

Dog Squad is a four to six week, intensive doggy “boot camp”. Your pet will stay with us and is worked with several times every day by different members of our training staff. Our program is based on mental and physical stimulation that allows the dog to relax and learn in the right mindset. Your dog will learn to work with different people, and under a variety of different situations including: distractions, other animals, and a variety of other situations. Our training stays with your dog and works in real life situations, not just in classes. You’ll be amazed at the transformation your dog can make in just one month.


Experienced Trainers Image

Trainer Experience

We’ve been training dogs for over 25 years, and our trainers have over 50 years of combined experience. We take great pride in our training success rate, which we believe is a result of; first and foremost, we know dogs! Our return clients speak volumes for our obedience training program, as they keep coming back with their 3rd and 4th dogs. Our obedience training program focuses on basic commands, such as sit, heel, down, stand, stay, and come.


Custom Training

Custom Training

While many dog problem behaviors are similar, we understand that every dog has its own personality. Part of the joy we take out of our jobs at Dog Squad Training is getting to know every dog that we work with. You and your family will always be their best friend, but we love being in their inner circle! Once we get to know your dog and understand their behavior patterns, we work out a unique, customized training plan that will accomplish what we set out to do.


How does it work and why are the results so amazing?

The secret to a happy, well-behaved dog and the foundation of the program is based on developing a relationship of trust and respect with the dogs. To accomplish this we need to properly communicate what is expected – and we do this by introducing the rules, boundaries and limitations we set and expect of them.

We never allow for aggression or over excitement and we don’t nurture fears or insecurities. We constantly stimulate both the mind and the body. The consistent reinforcement of rules combined with 5-6 training sessions per day to help the dog understand basic commands is why the change can be so incredible.

The Details

We offer a four to six week training program for anyone looking to improve their relationship with their dogs. The only way a dog is really going to improve and for the behavioral changes to stick, the owners must change their ways and PRACTICE on a daily basis after the dog returns home.

The Dog Squad 4-week Behavioral Board & Train program is $4400 and the 6-week Board and Train program is $6600. We require 50% down once your dog has been scheduled into the program and the remaining 50% when you drop off your dog at the beginning of the program. This can be credit or debit card.

Ongoing Support
We’re here for you and always just a phone call, text or email away. We are committed to our customers’ long term success. You will receive free advanced obedience classes or two private lessons with one of our trainers upon completing Dog Squad.

I was at the end of my rope and felt horrible, wondering why I adopted a third dog. I then looked online and found the Dog Squad, and I signed them up right away. We can now take the boys on walks with other dogs around the neighborhood. We LOVE the staff and the security that our dogs are in great hands.

Breezy & Misty

Our dogs, Breezy and Misty, started visiting Blaine Kennels when they were 12 weeks old. At the end of their 6 month training program they graduated to working the birds of S.D. I could not ask for a better pair of hunting partners.

My respect for the trainers at Blaine Kennels has gone to a new level. I have always liked Dale's methods as he does not believe in beating his dogs to arrive at a goal in training or to get compliance. Anyone can train a good dog! It is how one solves problems that separates the men from the boys.
