All dogs deserve solid foundation training. Healthy relationships rely on clear communication, and by improving our methods of communication with our dogs, we can provide them with happier, more well balanced lives. The Summit K9 training philosophy is based on the principle that truly reliable behaviors can only be achieved after building strong foundation of motivation, communication, clarity, and consistency.
All Summit K9 trainers are required to have a deep understanding of canine learning theory and are always pursuing continued education in training and handling. We are committed to exploring a wide range of methods, techniques, and tools to help our clients achieve their full potential with their canine companions. We specialize in improving leash walking, establishing off-leash reliability, developing polite social skills, and generating calm behavior in the home.

Board & Train Program
The Summit K9 Board & Train program is specifically designed to lay the foundations for your ideal dog! Throughout their stay, your dog will receive extensive one on one training to build the skills necessary to ensure proper house manners, general calmness, basic obedience, and leash skills. Participants in our 4 week program will also build essential skills for off-leash reliability and safe socialization with other dogs.
This program is specifically formulated to assist you in learning to implement a holistic training system with your dog that will yield optimal results. Dogs in this program will be conditioned to very consistent structure, streamlining their transition back into your home. Owners participating in this program must commit to utilizing a crate in their home regularly.
Dogs will be dropped off on Sunday night and will work on targeted training throughout the day with Summit K9 trainers Monday through Friday. Dog and owner will meet at the Summit K9 facility to receive a go home Private Lesson every Friday when they pick up their dogs, with guidelines and homework for continued progress for Saturday and Sunday. Following the final boarding portion of the program, owners will receive 2 follow up lessons for continued skill building and troubleshooting.
During their stay, your dog will be given the highest quality care and attention. Dogs will be handled by our team of skilled trainers and apprentices, which generalizes conditioned skills to multiple people (not just a primary trainer!), and you will receive frequent video and photo updates communicating your dog’s progress. Transparency is extremely important to us, and you will be notified of any problems or concerns immediately if such occurrences arise. Throughout the day, your dog will receive structured training, plenty of exercise (both mental and physical!), and outdoor play sessions with our trainers. Once your dog has mastered the basics, they will participate in regular field trips to practice their skills and explore the great outdoors!
Summit K9 board and train programming is a headstart program. It is extremely important that the owner maintains the results when the dog goes home. If the new training and system of structure is not implemented from the moment the dog leaves our facility, they will backslide to their old habits.
