Cooperative Canine In-Home Services

In-Home Day Training

Do you have a dog who's sweet, but unmannered?
Who ignores his name, jumps on visitors, rushes at other dogs to play with them, thinks your socks are the best toys ever, and runs away from you when you call instead of coming to you?

When you got your dog, you envisioned him as your constant companion, able to go with you everywhere because he's so well-mannered, your pride and joy because people think he's so cute and well behaved.

Instead, you're struggling to enjoy your dog because your relationship isn't what you want it to be because of these unruly behaviors. You want to train your dog, but you just don't have the time, because you're a busy professional with a long workday, and you don't know where to start.

That's where we come in. Let us come to your home while you're at work and train your dog in the skills necessary to give you the companion you dreamed of.

We'll give you the tools you need to build the relationship with your dog that you visualized when you first decided to bring your four-footed friend into your life.

Service includes:

  • Four 1-hour training sessions per week in your home for four weeks.

  • One 30-minute transfer session with you at the end of each week.

  • Up to 4 Zoom calls within the first 2 months.

  • Four months of e-mail support.

  • Access to our exclusive, online Facebook alumni group.

What we will teach your pup:

  • Attention to name.

  • Go to mat/bed/place.

  • Sit, down, stay, come.

  • Foundations of loose leash walking.

  • Foundations of recall (come when called).

  • Other goals as determined by you and your trainer.

Note: This service is not appropriate for dogs with behavioral issues such as reactivity to dogs or people, aggression, separation anxiety, or other issues requiring a behavior modification program. If you are experiencing these issues, please contact us for a Private Consult.

All tiers include the following services:

  • Morning walk and breakfast.

  • Evening walk and dinner.

Stay & Train

The best of both worlds: pet sitting + training while you are on vacation! We combine our pet sitting service with daily training to establish foundations for good behavior for your pup. We begin teaching your pup basic skills such as sit, down, stay, go to place, and come when called. When you come back, we hold a transfer session with you where we guide you to take over and progress your training. We also offer up to 4 Zoom calls in the first 2 months after your return. This service is offered as an add-on to our Standard and VIP pet sitting service and is an additional $95 per day of training (up to two dogs).

At this time, we do not offer stay and train service for dogs with a history of aggression.

We recommend our private behavioral training if your dog has aggression/reactivity.

When you prefer not to have someone stay at your home,

we offer our boarding service where your pup stays at a TCC team member's home or at our Training Center. 

Your pup will receive the highest quality care. Our boarding service treats your pup like family. Unlike kennel style boarding facilities, our boarding service includes lots of playtime, snuggles, and treats. We accept a maximum of 2 boarders at any time. Your boarder may also have their own dogs and/or cats at their home.

If your pup is dog-friendly, they will have the opportunity to play with other dogs at the Training Center. If your pup prefers solo time with his sitter, that's what they'll get. This style of boarding creates a more at-home feeling for your pet, causing less stress for them. You can enjoy your time away knowing that your pup is loved and well cared for. 

Prior to your boarding stay, you and your pup will have a meet and greet with the TCC team member to establish care and feeding routines as well as sociability.

  • Food (with your scoop)

  • Crate (if applicable)

  • Leash

  • Collar/Harness

  • Favorite toy(s)/Long-lasting chew

About your dog's stay

We require a minimum stay of 5 days. This gives your dog a few days to acclimate to being away from you and staying in a strange place. Your dog will be boarded with one of our team members or at our training center. If your dog is dog friendly and enjoys playing with other dogs, they will have the opportunity to do so. If your dog prefers to stay away from other dogs, we can arrange that as well. 

What to bring

  • Food (with your scoop)

  • Crate (if applicable)

  • Leash

  • Collar/Harness

  • Favorite toy(s)/Long-lasting chew

  • Blanket/comfort item

  • Anything else you think your dog would like during their stay

The Cooperative Canine's Board & Train is different from most Board & Train services you've heard of. How are we different? First of all, we are dedicated to force free training. That means we won’t use a choke, prong, or shock/e-collar to train your dog. We choose not to use these tools because they hurt your dog both physically and emotionally. There is no way to effectively use these tools without hurting or scaring your dog. Although using these tools will definitely stop behavior, it will do so at the cost of shutting your dog down and potentially making your dog afraid of you.


Secondly, we do not guarantee a quick fix or a particular outcome. If this is what you are looking for, we are not your best choice. What we offer is to do the hard work of laying a foundation of good behavior and decision-making on the part of your dog. Then we involve you in the maintenance and progression of the skills we built while your dog was with us. Why do we do this? We know you didn’t get a dog to become a dog trainer. (If you did, we’d be out of a job!) However, all behavior must be maintained, just like you maintain your car, and we give you the skills to do this. Plus, when you continue working with your dog, it strengthens your bond with each other.


Finally, we know from recent studies that using force free training makes your dog more optimistic. We love that our choice of training method has this outcome. We want the dogs we train to be joyful participants in their own growth, eager to learn, and happy to engage with life.

You are a good fit for our program if you...

  • Understand that no training outcomes can be guaranteed.

  • Intend to be actively involved in maintaining your dog's training.

  • Want your dog to make good decisions and have a positive outlook on life.

We understand that our approach to dog training may not be for everyone, and we understand that. It's important that you choose the service that works best for you and your dog.
