Dog Boarding

Cage-free boarding provides a range of benefits that enhance the well-being of your dog, both physically and emotionally. These benefits include:

Freedom and movement: Dogs have access to spacious indoor and outdoor areas, allowing them to move freely. This promotes more natural physical activity and reduces the risks of obesity and joint issues.

Reduced stress and anxiety: Without the confinement of cages, dogs experience lower stress and anxiety levels, contributing to better overall health and behavior.

Encourages natural behaviors: Dogs can engage in natural behaviors such as exploring, playing, and socializing, which is vital for mental stimulation and emotional health.

Improved social skills: Interacting with other dogs in a controlled and safe environment improves social skills, making them more sociable and well-adjusted. This is especially great for getting dogs ready for the dog park.

Dog and Puppy Training

Contrary to popular belief, you can teach an old dog new tricks. While we don’t train dogs to do backflips, we will teach both old dogs and puppies basic obedience training. This helps with behavior at home, like potty training, and in public, like dog park socialization. We specialize in a range of dog training services tailored to meet the needs of every dog and owner. Whether you are searching for nearby dog trainers or require specific expertise, such as training for aggression issues, our facility offers professional solutions.

We offer several training options:

Puppy training: This includes foundational training for puppies, covering everything from basic commands and socialization to always-critical dog potty training. Our goal is to set puppies on the path to good behavior early on if possible

Dog obedience school: For dogs that need to learn new commands or improve their obedience, our school teaches essential skills such as sit, stay, and proper walking etiquette.

Dog training camp: Combining the benefits of boarding with intensive training, this camp is ideal for busy owners or dogs needing focused behavior correction.

Board and Train Programs

Our “Board and Train” programs are perfect for those looking for immersive training experiences. These are especially suited for:

Behavior modification: Training an aggressive dog may require the support of professional dog trainers who have experience dealing with specific behavioral issues. Give us a call today to learn more about our training services for aggressive dogs or to arrange a visit to the ranch.

Advanced obedience: We have programs designed for owners who want to advance their dogs’ training beyond basic commands. Reach out today with your training questions!

Training at home: Additionally, for those who prefer training sessions at their home, we can provide you with professional dog training at your home residence.

By choosing K-9 Divine for your dog training needs, you’re ensuring your dog benefits from the highest standard of training in a supportive and professional environment. We aim to train your dog and equip you with the knowledge and skills to continue their training at home, promoting lasting behavioral success.

  • How Do I Prepare My Dog For Daycare?

    Getting your dog ready for daycare can seem like a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be. First, make sure your dog is up-to-date on all vaccinations and provide us with their medical records. Get your dog accustomed to social settings by taking them to the park. Bring along any comfort items like their favorite toy or blanket to make them feel more at home. On the day of their visit, ensure they have a good meal and a bit of exercise beforehand. Lastly, trust that our dedicated staff will provide the attention and care they need throughout their stay.

  • Do dogs get stressed at daycare?

    While some dogs may experience initial stress when first attending daycare, our experienced team at K-9 Divine is trained to help them acclimate quickly. Staff is present 24 hours a day to provide constant supervision and reassurance, ensuring that each dog feels secure and content. Most dogs adapt well and come to enjoy the stimulating and social atmosphere.

  • Is doggy daycare good for dogs with separation anxiety?

    Doggy daycare can be very beneficial for dogs with separation anxiety. Cage-free environments allow dogs to feel less confined and more at ease. With ample space to roam and socialize, dogs are constantly engaged and distracted, which helps alleviate feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Our 24-hour staff presence ensures that your dog receives continuous attention and comfort. The social interaction and structured routine provided by our daycare can significantly reduce separation anxiety and improve your dog’s overall well-being.

  • How should my dog act after daycare?

    After a day at K-9 Divine, you can expect your dog to be happily tired and relaxed. The physical activity and social interaction they experience at our 80-acre ranch often result in a calm and content demeanor when they return home. It’s common for dogs to sleep more after daycare as they recuperate from their busy day of play and exercise. You may also notice improvements in their behavior, such as reduced anxiety and better social skills. Our goal is to ensure that every dog leaves daycare feeling satisfied and well-cared for.
