How We Train
Not every dog has the same training needs, or learns the same way. At Jumping Jack Dog Ranch we strive to personalize the experience for every individual dog and family. We use a choice based training approach that is deeply rooted in science and positive reinforcement. This means we do not use pain, intimidation or fear to teach our dogs. We believe that the relationship with your dog is precious, and that the training process should be fun for both dog and owner. Our goal is to teach you how to train your dog so that you not only have a better understanding of your dog, but you are also equipped with the skills you need to maintain your dogs new and improved behavior. Because everyone comes with different needs, we have many different training options to help you find the right fit for you.
Available Tuesday - Thursday
Drop off 6:30am - 10:00am, Pickup 3:00pm - 7:00pm
Day School is a fantastic option for the busy pet parent whose dog needs some extra help or stimulation while here at Jumping Jack. Day School includes Daycare and one-on-one training work with one of our fantastic trainers, tailored to a your dogs needs and your training goals. It is a great way to support the training you are doing at home, and a wonderful source of enrichment for dogs of all ages and needs.
Day School includes a report card with links to instructional videos for the skills your dog worked on that day, as well as a video of your dog working for you to review and re-enact the exercises at home. Before beginning a Day School program we require an initial lesson, and an evaluation day to make sure that the service is the best fit for your dog. In this lesson you will learn how to set the foundation of the skills that will be taught in Day School, and learn about how we train and how to better communicate with and understand your dog.
Full understanding of the methods used, daily practice and consistency are essential to set up your dog for success, allowing us to continue to raise the bar of difficulty in training each time your dog attends Day School.
Day School is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can elect to sign up for a program with visits once a week on Wednesdays, or twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are unsure which option is the best fit for your dog, please contact our training team and they can help you determine the best option.
Four Week Program
Our four week program is a great starting point for those interested in Day School. The program begins with a lesson with one of our trainers to set the foundation for your dogs training, and develop a training plan with you.

Your program will also conclude with another lesson to help transfer the skills your dog has learned to your home, and teach you how to continue the training.

Board and Train
Our Board & Trains are a great option for busy owners. A Board & Train gives your dog the opportunity to get a jump start on learning new skills in a new environment. While a Board & Train will not entirely replace training that you will need to do at home, it will accelerate your dogs learning and get you started on the right foot. All of our Board & Train programs include multiple transfer lessons to make sure that you finish the program with a full understanding of how to finish the skills taught to your dog, and carry on their training.
During all of our Board & Train programs you will receive daily updates on your dog’s activities. You will receive instructional videos on all of the skills taught to your dog, as well as videos of your dog's training sessions. You will also receive our usual picture report cards! Before enrolling in a Board & Train program we require an initial lesson, and an evaluation day to make sure that the service is the best fit for your dog. During this lesson your trainer will lay the foundation of the training that will take place in your Board & Train, and develop a training plan with you based on your goals.
Traditional Board & Train
A traditional Board & Train is just what you would expect. It is a great option if you are looking for your dog to get things started while you are out of town. During a traditional Board & Train your dog will get to participate in our daycare program, as well as receive training throughout the day. They will get the same excellent care as all of our boarding dogs, and two days off each week from learning to make sure that they are having fun as well!
Two Week Program - $1600
The two week Board & Train program is a great fit for dogs who need to brush up on existing skills, or get new skills started. The two week program includes 14 nights of boarding, 10 hours of training spread out throughout their stay, a full bath and blowout, and three transfer lessons.
Weekends At Home Board & Train
If you’re looking for the Board & Train experience but you aren’t going out of town, and can’t quite bear the thought of being apart from your dog for so long, the Weekend at Home Board & Train might be the option for you! During the Weekend at Home Board & Train your dog will spend the week with us, Monday through Friday, learning and working towards your goals. They will go home with you for the weekend. Each weekend they come home you will have a transfer lesson with your trainer so that you can continue working on the skills they have learned until you drop them back off on Monday.
This different approach will help the transfer of skills go smoothly, and give you the opportunity to still be a big part of your dog's training while we help with some of the heavy lifting.
Two Week Program - $1300
The two week program is still a great fit for dogs who need to brush up on existing skills, or get some new skills started. The two week program includes 8 nights of boarding, 8 hours of training throughout their stay, a bath and blowout at the completion of the program, and 4 transfer lessons (one of which will take place over the mid-stay weekend).
One Month Program - $2300
The one month program is a much more intensive option for both your dog, and you! Over the four weeks your dog will receive 16 hours of training during their 16 nights of boarding. The program includes 5 transfer lessons, 4 of which will take place during your dogs weekends at home. The final lesson will take place within 2-4 weeks of the completion of your program. They will also receive a bath and blowout at the end of the program.
The skills taught during Board & Train Programs are tailored to your dogs needs and your goals for them. These programs are a good fit for puppies, adolescent dogs, and adult dogs who need help learning their basic skills and manners.
