Bernadette’s Boarding School for Dogs


“I was referred to Bernadette’s by two of my friends. I took my 9 month old yellow lab Sally to Bernadette’s 2 week training program. It has been 2 weeks since I brought my sweet dog home. Bernadette is a true dog whisperer and absolutely amazing. Updates: I can now take my dog for an enjoyable walk and she stays by my side without pulling, she does not jump on company, does not bark incessantly, has not jumped my fence again, she sleeps in her crate throughout the night (without whining, barking, and pawing at the door; I sleep through the night without having to let her outside!) There are so many other positive changes too numerous to list. She spent 3 hours with me on ‘pick up’ day and that education was essential. I continue to spend time training Sally every day as training does not end after the 2 week period is completed. The relationship I have with my dog has changed completely and it is difficult to explain. No more stress. Her eye contact with me is awesome. Thank you Bernadette for a wonderful dog training experience with Sally. It has changed my life :). We all are so happy and look forward to great years ahead with our dog.”

For those who want the convenience of having Bernadette personally train their dog, she offers her exclusive Boarding School Program. Your dog will come for a two week stay at our beautiful four acre training facility in Lafayette, Colorado. During their visit with us, your dog will learn all the skills needed to be a polite companion. He’ll return to you completely trained to be off-leash reliable. The investment for our boarding school program pays off for a lifetime. You’ll be able to go everywhere together. All behavior issues are covered, including housebreaking, begging, jumping, stealing food, pulling on the leash, running away, not coming when called, door dashing, barking and just plain listening to their owner.

At the end of the two weeks, you’ll receive a 2 hour orientation on how to maintain your dog’s new and improved training.

Best of all, Bernadette’s Boarding School training comes with a lifetime of support for you and your dog. Follow our instructions, and it’s highly unlikely you’ll experience a loss of training but if you do, just call us at no charge. Telephone behavior consultations are free for the life of your dog. It’s rare for us to receive such a call because our training and orientation are so effective. But most issues can be resolved easily on the phone.
