Highly recommend this team! We sent our pup (Hugo) off to participate in the Board & Train program, and he came back a changed pup! Nick and the team were always super professional and very prompt to answer any questions or explain things on a level we could understand. They are very thorough in not only training the canines, but also detailing to the owners how & why each technique was chosen for said activity. To help quell our (human) separation anxiety, we were provided numerous photos, videos, and training session clips on a daily basis. Cannot overemphasize my recommendation for Alpha Instincts! A+, 10/10, 5 stars
Alpha Instincts' Board and Train Program is unlike anything else available in Alabama.
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.
We work with your dog to help them learn rules, structure, and obedience so they can be a well-behaved canine companion.
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.
The fee is determined by the location and duration of the program. All training tools are included in the program and come home with the dog after the program is complete.
Rebuild a better relationship & set a more solid foundation by having your dog effectively trained when you choose our Board and Train Program. Contact us today to learn more about how this program will help improve your dog and your life.
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.
