Day Care

We provide your dog with a full day of care while you are out enjoying activities in the area that may not be "dog friendly". Leave your pup with us as you explore Yellowstone Park, whitewater raft on the Yellowstone River, fly fish the spring creeks, or even just enjoy a day in Livingston. All of our 4'x6' runs are outdoors with an attached dog house. Each run is cleaned twice a day to ensure your pet has a healthy and happy stay. Dogs are aired regularly.

Dog Boarding

All of our 4'x6' runs are outdoors with an attached dog house. Each run is cleaned regularly to ensure your pet has a healthy and happy stay. Dogs are aired mornings, afternoon, and evening in a group setting unless your dog is not as social and they will be accommodated separately. Our trainers also take the dogs on daily walks to the Yellowstone River, ponds, and open areas.

Dog Training

Basic Obedience

Basic Obedience covers the simple rule of good manners.
Our training includes:

Sit, Stay, Here, Down, and Heal. As well as e-collar conditioning on these commands.

Puppy Training

We work with you and your puppy to resolve problems with House Training, Crate Training, Jumping up, Nipping, Mouthing, Chewing, and Socialization with other dogs and people. It is never too soon to start training your dog.

Comprehensive Training Package

Coming when called, SIT as a position, not temporary, until released. "Don't drag me down the road" when walking on lead. E-collar conditioning on the SIT and HERE commands. Additionally, we teach "kennel" on command, "quiet" for inappropriate barking, how to play tug, introduction to tracking, stimulating the retrieve drive, and introduction to whistle sit and whistle come.

We strongly recommend the Dogtra 1900s e-collar for every owner, for $250.00. Joe Skaggs can purchase the collar for you and will show you how to use it upon pick-up.
