Default Boarding School Anyone?

My little Emme has just packed her bags Monday night for a 5 weeks of board/training program. Her big brother Manolo went there last year and he loved it, and I loved the result.

Ive no idea about such program. She will be away 5 weeks? I guess I wouldnt be able to be away from my fluffs for that long. I would love to hear more about the program though.
Hope your little one has a wonderful time there

Aww, she is just too cute!! Will you be able to visit her while she's gone? I don't know if I could be separated from Leila that long myself. I'm looking forward to hearing more about it too.

No way could I leave Bella for 5 weeks. Do you get to go with her?

The program called solid k9 training. Last year I was searching for a training program for my Manolo. My little man was great in the house but when it came to outside, he was out of control. I could not walk him I was being pulled by this 8 lb. havanese., who was barking like a mad man. I tried all types of dog class/programs not one of them could help. They just keep saying all ways have treats. But If your pups in that mind set a treat is not going to help. I would just be rewarding bad behavior.
In Rhode Island monthly it has a section about dog and I came across Jeff Gellman at solid k9 training. I called him told him my story. After doing more research I sent Manolo for 3 weeks of training; he learned all his commands, walking with a proper heel, he knows how to walk on a treadmill (for those snowy & rainy days) and perfect recall which on those beach days he can run along the shore but once I say Manolo he is back by side. Most of all he is a balanced dog.
I know 5 weeks is a lot but she is a puppy who needs balance, and socialization. I miss that sweet face so much but I know this the right option for my fur family.

I only went to drop her off, and talk with trainer. This is my second time doing this and honestly it was harder with my first pup. I know what to expect so I am not worried at all. I seen everything I need to see and i know she is safe. She in the process of learning all her commands.

You are brave and trusting. I'd never leave my dog somewhere for someone to train where I couldn't see what they were doing.

No videos so you can watch online? Even dog day cares and boarding facilities offer that.....

I have heard nightmare stories about those "boarding training" places. One by that name in another state, my neighbor's Great Dane puppy died while there. The trainer was at fault....

I just wouldn't do it.

But I hope it goes well for you.
