B&T is a program for very young puppies between the ages of 8 and 12 weeks. It is exclusively for RedTeddy puppies and their future owners. Board & Train begins the day after your puppy turns eight weeks. Reservations can be from one day all the way to three weeks, and include food, training treats and one-on-one puppy school. As puppies grow up they have increasing energy and ability in these important early weeks which means longer and more frequent training. The daily fee for B&T is, for the first week, $50 per day, week two is $60 per day and week three is $70/day. Board & Train starts with important skills, using only positive reinforcement, praise and treats. Puppies work on skills including crate training, sit-come-stay, house training, getting used to a leash, and more. Every puppy is different, but none will master these skills completely at their young age: Board & Train gives them a foundation. Board & Train families receive weekly texts on interactions with your puppy, and our K-9 specialist will take an additional time during puppy pick up to show off your puppies accomplishments, demonstrating how to get the best out of your puppy using the commands, body language and treats they are used to.*
Board & Train is a terrific way for our trainer to begin training your puppy, if you are concerned about these crucial days to start the essentials, or you cannot pick up your puppy during the optimal time at eight weeks. In either case, Board & Train is an excellent option! *During the Covid-19 quarantine/until further notice, the individual family training session will be done by phone, video clips, or facetime, etc., and not in person.
Board & Train in session: These videos show day two, training two puppies to look at the human and obey the command to sit! It is so important that the puppies do not simply identify the command with the trainer but can generalize to obeying the command from others as in the second video. Pups do get one on one time as well. And, for comic relief, Princess Diamond helps the pups learn to open a doggy door and go down a ramp.
Boarding your poodle at Red Teddy
We are located just two hours north of Manhattan, in the beautiful Hudson Valley. RedTeddy puppies and dogs who are not aggressive and will fit into our pack may visit for up to one week when their families are away. We offer two levels of boarding, with and without training. If your dog is not fully house trained, is a problem barker or has other negative behaviors, he or she will be enrolled in our Board & Train program for one on one training and encouragement to end the negative behaviors. If your dog is house trained and just needs to spend a few days in a pleasant atmosphere when you are away, he or she will be included for free play with our pack. All dogs eat our home made diet and treats, and are guaranteed hiking, water sports, games appropriate to the season and weather.
The base fee without training is $60/day. Board & Train is $90/day, (If your pup is perfect at home but not so much here, they may be moved to B&T without notice)
Grooming and pick up & delivery services available. We are a full house of dogs, cats and people. For this reason, we require your vet's contact info and to know if your dog has bitten or hurt another animal or a human, before we agree to board him/her. No female dogs who are in season are accepted. **Requires a recent kennel cough vaccine, Rabies certificate and a recent vet statement of health**
