What’s Boarding Access?

With sign-off from your trainer that your dog has achieved basic obedience skills and is comfortable in a crate, your dog can live with a trainer while you’re out of town in our boarding program!

Your dog will live in a Traction trainer’s personal home and live the life of a trainer’s dog, keeping their training fun and consistent while you’re away.


How much does boarding cost?

Boarding is $83 per day your dog is with their trainer. They must have approval from their trainer to participate in the boarding program.

Where will my dog stay?

Your dog will stay in a Traction trainer's private home and will live as part of the family. Their crate will be used if we have to leave home without them as a way of keeping them safe.

Does boarding include any training?

Dedicated training sessions are not included in your dog’s stay, but we will use their basic obedience commands throughout each day and keep all of their training consistent.

What if my dog is not friendly towards other dogs?

No problem! Your dog can be kept separate from your trainer's own dogs and will get individual walks and time with their trainer.

Is boarding always available?

No, but we are able to fill almost all boarding requests. Request boarding in advance of any trip you’re planning using the Boarding Request Form.
