Board and Train Dog Training Programs

At Midway Dog Academy, we always encourage dog owners to start training their dog sooner rather than later since being proactive is key to having a dog without bad habits or behavior problems. Most dogs with bad habits start small and progress or manifest into other areas of their lives. That is because practice makes perfect when it comes to dogs and unwanted behaviors – they get really good at doing things we do not want them to do. Our philosophy is get started on the right foot, so you don’t have to endure the bad habits or behaviors, instead you get to enjoy your dog from the start.

Our dog training board and train programs also known as Doggy Boot Camp are among our most popular programs as well as our client’s favorite. Our board and train programs are always customized to fit our client’s needs and wants as well as tailored to fit their dogs. The length your dog stays is typically decided during your evaluation with your trainer usually, but common stay lengths are: 1 week (your dog must be approved for this stay), 10-14 day stay, and our 1 month resident camp. We believe in providing your dog with a solid foundation from the beginning in order to build their skill set, trust level, and obedience ability; which is why we train with real life training for the real world dog.
