Board and Train

“Why a Board and Train?”

  • Quick, but lasting results
  • We do the leg work!
  • Full, immersive training environment
  • We will train you, too!
  • Your dog will be socialized with other dogs and learn from them
  • Get your dog trained while you’re at work or on vacation!

Whether you don’t have the time, the patience, or the motivation, we’ve got you covered! Our Board and Train programs will teach your dog everything they need to know. We do all the leg work and you get back a well-mannered and disciplined dog who will listen to you! Your only job is maintaining the training at home, with our help of course.


No matter the behavioral concerns or training goals you have, we have a board and train program to fit your needs!

The team at AvidDog has been fantastic working with me and my new puppy! I’m so glad I started early with them and have used both the in-home training and just finished a board and train. The team is knowledgeable and professional – and fun. Strong recommendation for anyone wanting to have a well trained dog and take advantage of Wilmington’s dog friendly environment. It is a lot of work for the dog and the owner, and Avid really helps both of us focus for success.
