K9  Day Academy

The K9 Day Academy is Monday - Friday and includes a full day training experience for your dog that does not require overnight boarding. Because the dog doesn't stay overnight with us, the price is a significantly cheaper than the board and train program and can be a great alternative.  The K9 Day Academy with Sniff Squad includes pick-up in the morning and begins with obedience training.  We'll then work on your pups separation anxiety and give them a much needed break/nap. Your pup will then get plenty of socialization, exposure and exercise with a structured pack adventure to the beach or hiking trails.  After another rest break we'll end our day with more obedience training and finally a "cool down" loose-leash walk before heading back to your home where the pup gets dinner and you get to enjoy a tired pup before bed time in the comfort and safety of their own home.  Each week includes a Sunday human owner training session to keep you on the same page as the dogs lessons.

Board & Train

Board & Train is a full overnight boarding and training experience for your dog. Sniff Squad does board and train a bit differently than other training services.  With us, your dog will be the center of our training focus. Instead of being in a cold and uncomfortable kennel environment, your pup will experience the full comfort and attention of a clean home environment without the constant distractions and annoyances of a normal kennel type board and train. Your dog will be not only trained, they'll be taken care of as if one of our own.  This option is our most comprehensive and customized training program.  A minimum of 10 days is required and most dogs will need up to 20 or more days to reach the desired result from training. Advanced notice of at least 1 week is required to book our Board & Train program.  Our board and train program doesn't just train the dog, we train you too!  It's most important for you as the dog owner to know how to continue your dogs training to make sure they maintain their lessons and keep regression to a minimum. So, we include some half-way training sessions and two "go home sessions" to keep you up to date. You'll also catch plenty of updates through social media and check-in calls.  Regression is, however, inevitable. But we have something that might help! For every 10 days of board & train you book, you receive 5 free Beach Adventures. After training is done, the free beach adventures will help keep your dog fresh on their training.
