Dog House – Training Center
Our 450-sq-ft training center, surrounded by our large, securely fenced yard, is home-base for our board and train (B&T) program. We have no kennel runs or outside cages. Our B&T dogs “free range” in our yard and training center with our Muttley Crew therapy dogs. We recreate a small “farm-like” atmosphere in the middle of the city.
Client dogs sleep in the comfort and safety of our private home. Because denning is a natural behavior that calms canine minds, client dogs typically sleep overnight in large (48″) crates, made comfy with their bed, toys and water bowl. We can accommodate giant breeds in a super-large (54″) crate. All crates are adjusted to accommodate potty training needs.
All on-leash and off-leash training starts in our training center and fenced yard. The ultimate goal of leash training is venturing out to enjoy training walks in our quiet yet active North Asheville neighborhood.
Please note: Visitors are not allowed in our private training areas for safety, liability and training reasons. For example, an owner’s visit can disrupt our ability to calm anxious dogs, which increases anxiety issues. We can arrange non-distracting, virtual/online private sessions while dogs are in board and train sessions, if necessary.
