If your dog needs help with a specific physical or behavioral issue, Board and Train Programs with KC-K9 Academy may be a great option for you.

This program is a Monday thru Friday Board and Train, so your dog comes home on the weekends to rest and have family time. Then the following Monday, you drop back off for another week ( repeat for the total number of weeks) .  We offer 3, 4, 5 and 6 week options. The more weeks you do, the less each week cost. For 3 week or more programs, there is a lesson starting after week 2 each week before you take your dog home for the weekend.


Our Board and Train programs are done in our trainer's home, where your dog is safe and looked after their entire stay. No cold lonely facility where your dog is left alone at night. 

This program allows us to "jump start" your dog's training for you during the week. Then we help you continue your success after your dog returns home.  The length recommended for the total program is determined though our FREE evaluation with our trainer.
