Board and Train or Private lessons, which is best for me and my dog?
Simply speaking, during a board and train your trainer does the heavy lifting and all of the training is done by a professional. Meaning that you’ll get far more reliable behavior and results. During private lessons you’ll be doing all of the work while the trainer coaches you through the process.
A few things to consider…Do you have the time, inclination, and necessary commitment level to put into private lessons? Are your dogs issues above your skill level and would it be better to have a professional handle your dog? Are you part of the problem and will that make it difficult for your dog to take you seriously, and therefore get results?
