**** Disclaimer: The above are general guideline of skills that can be accomplished during a Board & Train. All dogs progress at different rates and some take longer than others to become acclimated to staying at HTR. Trainers will do their best to achieve owners’ objectives and goals, and due to this may prioritize proofing of certain skills over others. Additionally, Board & Train programs are not a curative method for any issues, and all progress must be maintained by owners. ****
