Board & Train Program Information
All of S.A.S K-9's Board & Train Participants stay in a safe, clean, friendly and loving home environment with the Trainer's. All dogs remain indoors with the exception to potty time, and play time outdoors. Each dog has access to their own Dog Crate for various quiet time and distance from others when needed, and safety protocols. You will find no outdoor dog kennels on the property, no tie outs, nothing crazy! Just a loving enjoyable experience for your fur friend, and plenty of peace of mind for you! Photos + Videos are posted almost daily on our public Facebook page for Owner's to see their dogs each day, and watch their journey from afar!
Spaces for our Board & Train are limited. If you plan on traveling at any point and want to coordinate your dogs training program with your travels, we encourage you to place a reservation as soon as you can. Feb-July are commonly the most busy periods for most trainers, we encourage you to place your reservation as soon as you are ready to begin, so we can help you and your fur-friend quickly!
S.A.S K-9 DOES offer Payment Plans for our Advanced, Premier, Off Leash, Behavioral & Service Dog Board & Train programs.
Commonly these payments are split into three equal monthly payments, due each month.
Multi-Dog Households also receive $200.00 off each additional dog, and may receive other payment plan options in addition.
Service Dog Training
S.A.S K-9 Service Dog Training Program is divided into Three Stages. Any Dog that families wish to prospect for service dog work is required to first attend our Service Dog Prep Board & Train Program. This is a Twelve Week long program in which SASK9 dedicates intensive training each day, socializing and public access reactions, temperament tests and over-all general evaluation to qualify or disqualify each dog for the next step in the process.
At S.A.S K-9, dogs stay in a home environment, versus a boarding facility. This allows dogs to obtain more real-life living success. Boarding facilities can be chaotic, and stressful to many dogs, and often are not maintained in calm and daily reinforced training. This makes it more difficult to train dogs to listen consistently, instead offering a more "sometimes I listen" mental state of mind. Living in a home environment, with a balanced pack of dogs, daily reinforcement by three trainers will help to ensure the best possible results, and easier transition home.
Stage 1: Service Dog Prep Program Cost: $3,400.00
Once completed, Owner and Trainer will then maintain lessons bi-weekly for two months following completion, to ensure dog-handler are following through on all homework and general behavior.
Stage 2: When Dog-Owner Team qualifies and passes all requirements, the next stage/program will consist of a five week Board and Train Refresher, and Task Jump Start, following weekly/bi-weekly lessons until completion. Length of time varies by each individual dog and owner team.
Stage 2: $2,995.00
Payment Plan: Each stage can be separated into three equal monthly payments.
Includes: AKC CGC, State Registration, Gear+Training equipment.
