“We love ecollars because we love dogs and ecollars allow complete off leash freedom with safety and fun.”

*Minimum two weeks*

Wouldn’t it be great to have a dog that comes when called every single time, on or off leash, walks calmly on a loose leash, knows how to socialize respectfully with other dogs and family pets, is housebroken, doesn’t jump on people, dig in the yard, bark continuously, bite, growl or lunge at people or dogs and doesn’t guard it’s food or toys.

You can have this with Prairieburn K9 Academy’s Board and Train Rehabilitation Program in as little as 2 weeks. We customize our board and train program to meet you and your dog’s needs to reach your goals. Your dog will move in with our family and pack and learn how to be a dog again.

To ensure success it’s important for the owner to understand and follow through with our lifestyle program established by Prairieburn K9 Academy.

Your dog will be with us for a minimum of 2 weeks and if we feel we need more than 2 weeks to achieve your goals we will take that time at no additional charge. Our goal is for you to reach your goal.
