Dog Boarding and Training

Board and Train Programs & Our Facility

Jose Moreno and Duke at the Refined K-9 Dog Training Facility

Not just another “doggy boot camp”, highly personalized dog boarding and training with full time support.

Refined K-9 is excited to offer specialized board and train programs with our own Jose Moreno at our private dog boarding facility in the East Bay. Your dog will gain the full experience of being in a home environment while also being boarded comfortably under the safe and watchful eye of 24/7 observation. Your dog will learn along side others with no more than 5 dogs at a time. This personalized experience allows for our trainers to spend all the time your dog needs to excel and learn in his or her program.

Balanced board and train programs are ideal for expediting the basics and foundations of learning, as well as high level off-leash obedience. Our trainers will target reactive behaviors while training in realistic environments from busy sidewalks to open spaces. Your dog will be exposed to real life situations and stimulus such as doorbells, being approached by new people, and environmental exposure. These training programs also provide daily structured socialization, and group pack walks.

We always wan’t you to feel at ease while your dog is with us.

Take the stress our of training by allowing our trainers to do the hard work that comes with everything from separation anxiety to crate training and house breaking. We are here for you while your dog is with us. Daily photos and email updates will be sent to you by request. If you wish to visit our facility you may do so by appointment. We do encourage owners to visit once a week if possible to learn along with your dog. Your trainer will pick up and drop off to your home.

 


Our Dog Boarding Facility

Conveniently located close to the East Bay, our beautiful training facility includes indoor and outdoor kennels, as well as 4 large secure training yards right off the back porch of our trainer’s home who lives on site.
