Training & Enrichment

Please click below to set up a Meet & Greet to discuss your needs via email or a brief phone call a Trainer or Enrichment Technician.

From there, we will set up a private consultation to prepare a preliminary plan, set up additional training sessions or daycare and train or board and train services. Both training and enrichment services include weekly or biweekly homework and email support.

Training Consultation


A 60-90 minute consultation to go over your concerns and your dog's training needs and discuss a preliminary training plan. From there, we will discuss additional sessions or needs to make progress towards your training goals for your dog. (A travel charge may apply depending on location.)

Private training sessions/lessons package


A package of six 45 minute private lessons or training sessions in your home with you and your dog or just your dog and the trainer.
Sessions must be used within 4 months. (A travel charge may apply depending on location.)

Canine Enrichment Consultation


Meet with an Enrichment Technician for a 60 minute consultation to learn about how to best meet your dog's needs.
Enrichment allows animals to demonstrate their species-typical behavior, gives them opportunity to exercise control or choice over their environment and enhances their well-being. Enrichment is just as essential to animal welfare as proper nutrition and veterinary care.
Most modern dogs don't have jobs nor the freedom that their ancestors had to do things like chew, dig, run, chase, and sniff, which can lead to our pet dogs doing these activities in places that humans consider a nuisance in the context of a modern household, house, and yard.
Enrichment has been shown to improve behavior in household pet dogs and to decrease anxiety and aggression.

Private Enrichment Session


An A Way With Dogs Enrichment Technician will come to your home and implement enrichment activities with your dog based on your dog's custom enrichment plan. Must be scheduled at least one week in advance.
(A travel charge may apply depending on location.)

Puppy Boot Camp

$1500 & up

New puppy taking more time and energy than you thought?

Is your puppy more of a handful than you bargained for?

Need to work on a daily routine with your dog but your own daily routine is in chaos?

No time to socialize your new dog in new environments and with new dogs and humans?

Are you struggling with a particular puppy behavior or stage?

Our Puppy Boot Camp follows and expands upon the philosophy laid out in Patricia McConnell's Puppy Primer. It starts with basics like house breaking, obedience training, bite inhibition, and socialization and moves onto more complex concepts as time and your puppy's ability allows.

Contact us for availability and a full consultation and quote.

Puppies must be up to date on vaccinations to the extent possible to minimize risk while in our care.

Board or Daycare & Train

Contact Us

Board & Train and Daycare Training options are available to address issues and problem behaviors in puppies or adult dogs, encourage healthy adaptive behaviors, improve social behavior, and address other specific needs such as minor reactivity, leash walking, and more. Each scenario will be assessed and priced on a case by case basis depending on the difficulty of the issue and time required.

All custom training services include a written plan to work on at home, and where needed, a session to provide you with the know-how to continue reinforcement of desired behavior and follow-up sessions to address issues that arise at home.

Contact us for a consultation and quote to create a plan for you and your dog. Services may be priced on a weekly, monthly, or per session basis depending on your dog's needs.

Dog Daycare Redefined

Evenings with your dog will be easier and more enjoyable when your dog is both mentally and physically tired after a structured day of play.

Our group environment is small and playgroups are curated to maximize your dog’s satisfaction and fun while in our care. Our doggy daycare experience is professionally-designed enrichment-based constructive time spent with top notch, trained and experienced, caretakers. Daycare includes not only playtime with friends, but enrichment activities, training time, physical challenges like agility games, and a variety of other activities.

Our enrichment-based daycare service is available seven days a week, including holidays. A 10% weekend surcharge applies on Saturday & Sunday daycare and a holiday surcharge of 15% applies for daycare on holidays. Modified schedules may also apply on holidays.

Want to make your dog feel extra special for a special occasion (or any occasion)? Don’t miss our Ultimate Enrichment Experience for a day of pampering and one-on-one attention and activities customized for your dog.

Enrichment-Based Doggy Day School

Our clients tell us they refer to our daycare experience as “sending their pup to school.” This is not your average doggy daycare environment with eight hours of doggy chaos – it’s a small group, supervised, structured play experience designed to engage, teach, tire, and socialize your dog.

Puppy (under 1 year old) daycare includes frequent outside potty breaks and reinforcement of proper potty behavior/house breaking, basic crate training, and group & individual work on basic obedience commands. (For problem behaviors or more involved puppy training, including more targeted bite inhibition with humans, full crate training or work on separation anxiety, inquire about our board & train options.)

Pre-arranged drop off time for daycare is between 7-9am and pick up is between 4-9pm. (Extra charges apply for daycare days longer than 10 hours.)

School bus service (pick-up and drop-off) for daycare is also available for $15 each way within 5 miles of our facility.

Weekly and monthly discounted packages are available for daycare, including memberships for monthly unlimited daycare services.

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, your pet deserves to be well cared for and treated like family. When you board with A Way With Dogs, your dog will stay safely overnight and participate in our daycare program during the day.

Stay and Play  (Overnight boarding)

Bring your dog for a pajama party with their friends at A Way With Dogs! Your dog will stay with us overnight in a comfortable, homey environment where they will sleep in a crate, or on a dog bed or couch, in accordance with their home routine. Your dog will have breakfast and dinner with us and participate in our enrichment daycare (see above) during the day.

This is a 24 hour service charged by the night. For services over 24 hours, a full or half day of daycare will be added. (For example, if your dog is dropped off at noon and picked up at 5pm the following day, a half day daycare charge of $20 will be included on the invoice.)
