BOARD & TRAIN

Our Board and Train program is tailor-made for your dog's specific needs, moving at their pace. The focus of this program is to build strong habits for your dog to produce long lasting results. Your dog will learn how to navigate the world through play and proper communication.

We can address:

  • Behaviour Modification such as: Leash reactivity to other dogs or people. Lunging, Barking etc.
 
  • Basic Obedience such as: Walking nicely on a leash, Sit, Down. Come when called and go to a “place” like crate or bed.
 
  • Basic Manners like: Not jumping people or counters, Waiting for food, not running out the front door etc.
 
  • It can also be used for Advanced Obedience and if you want your dog to be reliable recall and OFF LEASH obedience.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

Sigrid has been awesome, very knowledgeable and professional. I’ve done both at home sessions and board-and-train. She has exceeded my expectations. My German shepherd has been transformed. Highly recommend Sigrid for any dog training you might need.

Reaching out to Autumn Canine and booking my dog into a Board and Train package with Sigrid was the best decision I could have made.
I was at my wits end with my rescue dog Pixie and her anxiety had become so bad that my vet suggested she needed medication to try to help her. Her issues were multiple, and her days filled with constant restlessness and uncontrollable behaviour.  Fence fighting with the neighbour’s dog, destroying furniture if I left her at home (and howling up a storm if I crated her to go out), uncontrollable reactivity, lunging at everything and everyone when walking around the neighbourhood, constant barking at home. We had both become the neighbours from hell. Choosing to send Pixie to a Board and Train package has been life changing for the both of us. Not only is my own sanity restored but Pixie has returned a completely different, happy dog. She’s drug free, quietly relaxes in my backyard, enjoys our walks around the neighbourhood, and calmly visits the vet – her world is no longer an unhappy battlefield with both me and the environment. 

Thank you, Sigrid, you’ve created a relationship between Pixie and I that I never thought would be possible.  I was hopeful when I sent her to board with you but what you’ve achieved far exceeds what I’d even thought would be possible – you’re the best!
