About Board & Train

Only taking serious, committed dog owners who want the absolute best for their dog!


Forget the loud, crowded kennels. Katie only takes one Board and Train client at a time. Your dog will stay with Katie in her home on 5 acres and be treated like one of her own! This allows Katie to interact with your dog much more than if your dog were to stay in a kennel. 

Consistency and time are the key to training. With Katie's Canine Connection's program, your dog will receive the constant reinforcement necessary to succeed—and we don't stop there. In addition to the board and train program, we drop your dog off at your home and provide a one hour go-home consultation and five follow up lessons to help you transition your dog's new skill set to the home! Each dog also receives an e-collar and/or training collar if needed. At the end of the training, you'll have an obedient, responsive dog that will provide you and your family with a lifetime of companionship.

 In this program, your dog will learn the minimum following skills and commands:

  • Walk politely with you on leash (we will eliminate pulling, barking, excitable behavior)

  • Sit/Stay

  • Down/Stay

  • Place Command

  • Recall/Come

  • Duration Work (long stays with distractions)

  • Crate Training

  • Waiting for food

  • Waiting at Thresholds (doors, car, crate, etc.)

  • Off leash E-Collar Training (optional)​​ 

All Board and Train programs receive the following:

  • The option of a Mini Educator E Collar from E Collar Technologies

  • The option of a Prong Collar

  • A 15 foot training line.

  • 1 Go-Home Lesson

  • 5 Follow Up Lessons
