Actually, yes! Our is the only boarding program that guarantees availability. Membership means we’ll always keep a room open for your dog, just in case you need it.

If we ever don’t have the dates you need available, we’ll help acquire similar accommodations, and we’ll credit your account with a day of free boarding on us in the future.

Membership, at $9/month, ensures we keep a room open for your dog and their records up to date at all times.

If we ever don’t have the dates you need available, we’ll help acquire similar accommodations, and we’ll credit your account with a day of free boarding on us in the future.

When you do book a boarding stay, it is $89/day.

Your dog will stay in Traction trainer Mara’s private home and will live as part of the family. Their crate will be used if we have to leave home without them as a way of keeping them safe.

We always use your dog’s basic obedience commands in real-life settings to keep their training consistent, but you can also add on dedicated training sessions if you’d like.

Almost all dogs can board with our trainers, given their unique ability to manage and work with challenging dogs.

We accept unaltered dogs, puppies, anti-social dogs, and dogs with behavior concerns.

However, your dog should be comfortable sleeping in a crate. 

Some dogs may be required to add light training to their stay until certain issues have been resolved. Your trainer will determine this if you’re in private training with us, or it will be determined in a free meet-and-greet.
