BCT Overview

Basic Canine Training (BCT) is a 3-week board and train program expertly designed for dogs over six months of age. By choosing our BCT program, you will save time and money, while ensuring your dog receives professional, convenient, and effective training.

While an average dog with a higher food-drive and prey-drive, and typical behavioral issues and conflicts, can potentially complete our Basic Canine Training (BCT) program in just three weeks, some dogs may require additional attention and time. Dogs with lower food-drive and/or prey-drive, shyness, reluctance to socialize, being overweight, lacking proper potty and/or crate training, or experiencing separation anxiety may benefit from our modified Basic Canine Training (mBCT) program.

The mBCT program extends the training duration to a minimum of four weeks, ensuring we have sufficient time to address and reshape these beyond-average behavioral issues or conflicts. Our dedicated team of trainers will work closely with your canine companion, offering a tailored approach to help them overcome their unique challenges and achieve the desired training outcomes.

The BCT program consists of two main phases. The first phase establishes a solid foundation where we teach your dog to trust us as leaders and food providers, effectively eliminating common conflicts related to potty and crate training, handling, walking on various surfaces, walking on-leash, and wearing a collar. Additionally, your dog will be introduced to food luring and will experience socialization with diverse people, pets, and environmental distractions.

In the second phase, we concentrate on essential obedience skills, such as Recall, basic Heel, Sit, Lay, Crate, Bed, In, and Out. Each command inherently includes Stay, ensuring your dog remains in position until released. We also address housebreaking and work to counter or reshape unwanted behaviors like chewing, digging, excessive barking, bolting, jumping on people and furniture, counter surfing, and leash pulling.

During the BCT or mBCT program, we will provide you with access to a private Google Drive folder, where we will regularly upload pictures and videos of your dog’s progress, keeping you involved and informed.

Upon completion of the BCT or mBCT program, your dog will receive a training certificate, highlighting their overall rating in comparison to other dogs that have completed similar training.

When your dog is ready to return home, we will arrange a drop-off date and time and deliver your trained canine companion free of charge. At this time, you and your family will participate in a 60-90-minute orientation to learn how to properly command and enforce behaviors using the training collar, ensuring a seamless transition.

As the owner, understanding and utilizing your dog’s new skills is crucial for success. We will support you and your family in demonstrating the ability to enforce desired behaviors, eliminating conflict and reaffirming your role as leader and food provider.

Our commitment to you doesn’t end with the completion of the BCT or mBCT program. We offer lifetime support for all our board and train programs. Should you need assistance, we are available through voice/video calls, texts, emails, or visual learning aids. If necessary, we can also determine whether an on-site visit is required to address more serious concerns or issues.

Choose our Basic Canine Training program or the modified version for a professional, convenient, and convincing solution to your dog training needs. With our expertise, you’ll save time and money, while receiving the support and assurance of a well-trained canine companion.
