Buffalo’s Positive Reinforcement-Based Board & Train Program!
We specialize in providing the best board and train experience you and your dog can have in the Amherst and Buffalo, NY area. In order to achieve your goals, we utilize positive reinforcement based training methods and never use force, pain, or intimidation to make your dog cooperate. Instead, we focus on finding ways that motivate your dog through the use of rewards such as food, play, toys, and more. Positive reinforcement training techniques are used to train all kinds of species throughout the world and they will work wonders for your dog, too!
When boarding with us, your dog will live and train alongside our personal dogs in our home.

SAVE TIME. – Save time by letting us complete most of the training for you. Training can be tedious and demanding – especially in the beginning stages. We can reach results more quickly than a dog owner that’s just starting to learn about dog training.
STRESS-FREE. – Our board & train programs are the most stress-free way to train your dog because we do most of the work for you! We also communicate frequently with pictures or videos to let you know how your dog is doing so that you stay involved through out the process. We take it one step further by picking up and dropping off your dog for the program at your convenience.
REACH YOUR GOALS. – Have confidence and peace of mind that training is being completed correctly and humanely with our certified trainer.
NO COLD KENNELS. – Your dog will never be left unattended in a cold, loud kennel at a boarding facility. Our boarders stay alongside our own dogs in our home. However, all dogs must be comfortable in their crates.
VIP TREATMENT. – We only accept ONE board and train dog in our home at a time so you can rest assured your dog will be the center of our attention during their stay. We look forward to meeting them!
In the end, we’ll deliver a dog that loves to listen to you, is a pleasure to have in your company, and fulfills you instead of frustrates you!
