Dog Board and Train

Transform your pet and transform your life.

My dog, Kona, and I had a fantastic experience with our trainer, Rachel. I say “our” trainer, because she trained me as much or more than Kona. Our 8 sessions met all my goals, and I learned so much that I can take with me in the future. I was surprised at how my connection with Kona grew closer during the course of the training. That was an unexpected benefit! If you have a dog with issues you think you can’t correct, think again. Alpha Dog Instincts can help. Worth every penny.

Dog Board and Train Program

Alpha Instincts' Board and Train Program is unlike anything else available in Alabama.

What's the difference between our Board and Train Program compared to other dog trainers in our area?

Our board and training program is a 3+ week long intensive program that will give your dog the skills needed to become the best version of themselves.

Your Dog Needs Alpha Instincts' Board and Train Program If Your Dog:

  • Acts possessive of a thing or place
  • Acts aggressive towards other dogs or people
  • Has a bite record
  • Struggles with anxiety or fear
  • In general, has bad manners

We work with your dog to help them learn rules, structure, and obedience so they can be a well-behaved canine companion. 

What Makes Alpha Instincts' Board and Train Program Different From Others?

  • Our board and train clients are not held in large facility type kennels, but rather within their trainers’ home. 
  • Our board and train facilities prioritize a low number of dogs for longer stays.
  • We train your dog in realistic settings with many daily training sessions, as well as exercise and fun for a well-rounded experience.

Unlike a sterile kennel, our program utilizes the stimulus and distraction that your dog would experience in the real world. This ensures that the rules, structure, and obedience we teach are applied in everyday situations that you'll face after training.

Alpha Instincts' Board & Train program was created to be highly beneficial for every household! With our program, your dog will spend at least three weeks with a trainer working in both home & public contexts to give your dog a well-rounded, structured experience around people, other dogs, and all kinds of sights and smells that they would encounter on a regular basis with you! We do not just concentrate on obedience - we focus on helping your dog to participate more fully in your daily activities.

Our 4-Week program addresses dogs with dog aggression, fear-aggression, severe anxiety, human aggression, and biting histories. We are among a handful of trainers who will work with and have experience training and rehabilitating aggressive dogs with a history of biting. We have a “No Dog Left Behind” policy and believe that every dog deserves a chance to learn, to live and that every dog has potential. We will always give you an honest assessment of your dog’s limitations and how to manage the issues they have going forward.

Another important thing to note is that we include a go-home session to teach you everything you need to know about keeping the training going after the program is completed. It is critical that you follow Alpha Instincts’ trainer's guidance and commit to making the necessary changes once your dog is home from the Board and Train Program in order to achieve long-term success. This program includes lifetime assistance, which means you can contact us for comments on problem areas once every six months, as needed.
