Puppy Training to Ensure Your New “Fur Buddy” is Housebroken, Crate Trained & Socialized!

Let Our Experts Train Your Puppy So That Bad Behaviors
Don’t Become Ingrained

Puppy KindergartenÂŽ Board & Train

What It Is:

You leave your dog with us for a period of two weeks or longer and receive back a well-behaved dog at the end of the stay! Nothing could be more convenient. You won’t have to go through the stress of attempting to train your dog yourself. Our experts know how to recognize and solve doggy behavior issues so your pooch becomes a well-behaved dream pet.

What It Does:

Our dog training experts leverage their "been there and done that" experience to transform your dog using positive reinforcement training methodology into a well-behaved member of the family. You get a puppy that sleeps peacefully through the night in a crate without any potty accidents and is house broken without having to go through the frustration of trial and error that comes with trying to train a dog on your own.

Our Board & Train Curriculum:

Puppy Prep:

One-on-one consultation with the trainer on what to expect when puppy arrives home and supplies are needed.

Potty Training:

We build a foundation of reinforcement and routine so your dog consistently goes to the potty outside.

Crate Training:

Our experts Introduce your puppy to the crate. This helps establish the crate as a safe and welcoming place where the puppy can feel secure.

Leash Training:

We introduce your dog to the collar or harness and leash. This training creates skills that will allow your dog to walk comfortably without pulling.

Safe Socialization:

We socialize your puppy to people and other animals in a safe environment. We also introduce socialization in new environments and even familiarize your dog with puppy parties.

Basic Command Training:

Puppy KindergartenÂŽ is designed to ensure that your puppy receives important training at the earliest possible time. All of these training issues are essential for good behavior and should be addressed within the first three months of life.

In-Home Training with Your Assigned Puppy KindergartenÂŽ Trainer:

Every puppy deserves a nurturing environment, especially during their formative training months. At Puppy KindergartenÂŽ, we believe that the best learning takes place in the cozy comfort of a home, not in a kennel. That's why each puppy is paired with a dedicated trainer who takes them into their own home, ensuring individual attention, genuine bonding, and a relaxed setting. Your puppy isn't just trained; they are cherished, cared for, and taught by a passionate professional in a real home environment. Experience the difference of our in-home, personalized approach with your assigned Puppy KindergartenÂŽ trainer.

Exclusive Puppy KindergartenÂŽ Web Portal: Multiple Updates, Videos, and Photos Each Week

Staying connected to your puppy's progress is paramount to us. With our exclusive Puppy KindergartenÂŽ Web Portal, we ensure you're kept in the loop every step of the way. Each week, our dedicated trainers provide detailed multiple written updates on your puppy's milestones, training advancements, and daily experiences. But that's not all! You'll also receive candid photos capturing precious moments and comprehensive training videos to showcase their evolving skills. Moreover, should you have any queries or need clarifications, our interactive chat feature allows you to directly communicate with your assigned trainer, ensuring that all your questions are addressed promptly. This transparent, digital touchpoint allows you to witness your furry friend's journey, celebrating each achievement, and fostering seamless communication between you, your puppy, and our trainers.

Virtual Support:

About Us

My name is Courtney Boeglen and as far back as I can remember, I have had a lifelong passion for all animals. Throughout my journey I learned to love and care for all animals in all walks of life. I have an amazing husband and three wonderful children. My goal has always been to raise my three children the best way possible. It might sound crazy, but here is an insider’s tip - little children and puppies are remarkably similar in so many ways. Children need nurturing, guidance, obedience, and structure to grow up and have the best chance for success in life. Puppies need these basic life principles as well. I had this belief that if puppies came with a step by step guide with instructions, then new pet parents and families would experience better animal ownership. I then set out to create a training curriculum that explains exactly what to do with your new puppy. That led me to create Puppy Kindergarten®, to help provide new puppy parents with this proven training method in their everyday life. As a puppy trainer and animal enthusiast I will break down your puppy’s behavior into an easy to understand language and explain how the use of a good schedule in your puppy’s life can set the foundation for long lasting good habits for your puppy and help families experience better animal ownership. My hope is that by sharing what I have learned over my many years as a dog trainer, I can help families enjoy better canine companionship. The growth of Puppy Kindergarten® has now grown to include my wonderful team. I have hand selected and trained our team members in the proven Puppy Kindergarten®method to become Fully Certified Puppy Kindergarten® Trainers. We work together as an extended family, to fully develop your puppy’s behavior, during their time here at Puppy Kindergarten®. I am so excited that our family gets to help your family welcome its newest member into their “furever” home.

I can’t rave enough about my experience with Courtney and her team. My little Cavapoo Harper went to Puppy Kindergarten straight from her breeder at around 12 weeks old.Before Harper began, Courtney herself called me for a one on one consultation and walked me through the course along with milestones they hoped to achieve with Harper in their care.She took Harper into her home, made sure she made all her scheduled vet visits, emailed me photos and videos up to 3 times a week with a summary of Harper’s progress. Harper arrived to me crate trained to sleep through the night, knowing her name, and the potty command. I was given a schedule to follow to keep her 5 weeks of training on track. Courtney welcomed any questions even after training was over and was always just a phone call away.Harper is now almost 8 months and hasn’t had an accident in almost three months! Even when she isn’t feeling well she let’s me know she has to potty. Thank you so much to Courtney and her team, they made this first time dog owner’s life so much easier!

To begin with I LOVE Courtney! She is amazing and I will use her again with no questions if and when we add to our fur family!Courtney was so precious and loving with our little girl Ellie. She really made outstanding progress with such a tiny tot… Ellie went to Courtney’s when she was 8 weeks old and stayed with her for 3 weeks. During that time she worked on crate training, sitting, socialization, etc.After Ellie left Courtney to come home, she spent the night with the stork and the next day was her travel day…well, her travel arrangements changed due to weather and there were a few days that she was staying with yet another “new person” I can only imagine how stressful this may have been for her. I called Courtney concerned about Ellie and concerned about her loosing the progress she so diligently worked on with her.Courtney was amazing, she called and spent time on the phone with me discussing my concerns. She spent time giving me suggestions and calming my fears! When Ellie finally arrived home, she was exhibiting signs of stress, so I reached out to Courtney and she was yet again such a blessing. She spent so much time talking me through everything, helping me to help Ellie. In the matter of 2 days we were back on track!She certainly did not have to do this and give me so much time, however, it was obvious that she was sincerely invested in the success of this little love of mine!One thing that I can say for sure, she really loved my little girl as if she was her own fur baby. Courtney has so much structure and really knows these pups. Her methods are wonderful, loving and proven and her efforts were worth every penny! I even joked with her and asked her if she trained kids.She was a God send and taught me so much. Ellie is not my first pup, but being a new breed to me I wanted to do the best I could for her and Courtney was a tremendous help.If anyone ever has any questions and would like to talk to me personally I would be more than happy to give a recommendation!

It is coming up on 1 year that we have had Dwight! He has been absolutely amazing. Wouldn’t change him for the world. 😊 We would definitely recommend the training to anyone within your program. The strict schedule definitely did work! The potty training is the biggest advantage we would say. Dwight has had only 3 accidents in 1 year! … Courtney was great to work with and [is] very friendly.
