Board and Train
Are you going on vacation and leaving your dog in our care?
We offer board and train! Now you can go away to the Bahamas, and your dog will have a fun time learning tricks and behaviors with our trainers. When you come back, your dog will have brand new things to show you, without the hassle of bringing your pet to class every week. Not only that, but we'll review everything they've learned with us to you.
This board and train is tailored to you and your dog's need, so depending on how long you'll be gone, our trainer will talk to you about the goals you have for your pet and the things you want them to learn, whether it be a behavioral adjustment or if you simply want them to learn how to sit and stay. Whatever your needs are, Stowe Farm will be able to accommodate to them and create the best training program for your dog while you're away!
Have you recently gotten a new puppy who's hyper and still has to learn their manners?
Fear not, because we have puppy classes to get them trained so you will have a well-behaved adult dog in the future! Stowe Farm offers two 6-week puppy courses for you and your puppy to bond together.
Puppy Course 1: This is a group class for puppies between 10-16 weeks of age. During this 6-week class, your pet will learn some basic puppy commands, like sit, coming when called by name, and walking on a loose leash, as well learning to socialize with other dogs, people, and barn animals. The class will also go over topics such as potty-training, teething, and more.
Puppy Course 2: This second group course is designed for puppies between 4-6 months. During this 6-week class, your puppy will brush up on commands learned in Course 1, and decrease their need to use treats, so they become a well-rounded, polite dog. The course will also expand on dog obedience and teach them other commands and tricks.
Also, if you've gotten your puppy from Stowe Farm, see if you can get puppy classes with their brothers and sisters!
It's never too late to start training your dog!
This 6-week introductory group course is great for adult dogs who have no prior training experience, and will help them learn basic manners. Because adult dogs with no training tend to get distracted easily, we offer plenty of impulse-control exercises, along with socialization and beginner obedience commands, like sit, leave it, drop it, and how to walk on a loose leash.
This class will also address issues adult dogs face, which include barking, jumping, and digging.
Prerequisite for this class: Beginner Training
During this 4-week group course, dogs will revisit their previous obedience commands and practice them with distractions to ensure they will listen to you regardless of environment. They will also learn more advanced commands such as wait, place & go to bed, roll-over, and more.
This course is designed to increase your dog's reliability in listening to you and to introduce higher-level exercises, tricks, and basic agility training.
