All dogs who board with Kind to Canines are trained personally by owner Dan Atkinson. The belief that most dogs benefit from a structured schedule of leash training and off-leash socialization is emphasized, rather than traditional boarding where dogs are not mentally and physically stimulated. Although daycare services are not offered, dogs have the option of day training where they come in for the day to train with Dan as well as participate in off-leash socialization with groups of dogs; at the end of the day Dan conducts a private lesson with the owner and assigns “homework.” Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.; closed Sundays.
