Ruff Beginnings Rehab Board and Train program ensures that you will achieve a direct line of communication with your dog in seemingly impossible situations. We take in only a few dogs for training at a time. Our program is a one on one approach with the dog where we work on state of mind to get the dog in a mind set to be able to handle situations that he could not handle before. Part of the reason we are so successful is because the dog lives with us as part of the family and we go out of our way to work the dog in many different situations and areas to generalize the new and improved behaviors.
We teach using low level, E-Collar training. This is not like anything you have likely seen before and has nothing to do with the E-Collar training in the old days. This is a high sophistication style of training with low levels to calm the dog down and teach him behaviors as if you were whispering with a leash. With this technique, combined with our structured program, many behaviors simply go away and the others we address directly and correct for as needed. Please see videos. We work with a small amount of dogs at a time to ensure they get the attention they need to be successful.
The dog will learn all of the basic commands, plus some if specified by owner. These include, but are not limited to, Place/Sit/Down/Stay/Heel/Come/Crate. Because of this one on one attention I am able to achieve dramatic transformations in a short amount of time.
For puppies 12-16 weeks old, no serious behavioral issues.
Our Puppy Start Up Board and Train is the most successful puppy program in Los Angeles. Get your puppy on the right track with our program tailored to young puppies.

After speaking with you and talking about your goals, we will put together a program that suits your needs for your specific situation.
