Boarding with S.A.B.T.C.

Training is a major commitment, and sometimes life gets in the way. Our new boarding program allows our Board Certified trainer to teach your pet through the first two stages of learning: Acquisition and Fluency.

  • We only allow a small number of pets into the program so that the focus is on your pet’s success.

  • We house pets in our home in Grayslake, IL rather than a kennel environment to ensure that the context in which they are practicing learned skills is true to life and consistent.

  • We provide an extensive amount of after-care including detailed home instructions, private lessons, and additional resources for maintenance and generalization to your home and family.

  • We are exclusively Force, Fear, and Pain-Free meaning that we will never utilize training techniques that risk frightening or hurting your pet. These include: Prong Collars, Choke Collars, Electronic Collars, Scat Mats, Ultrasonic Devices, and more.

During their stay your pet will have access to appropriate toys, puzzles and comfortable places to rest including beds and crates depending on your preferences. They will have plenty of time to explore our completely fenced (7’ privacy) property which totals nearly an acre for exercise and enrichment as well as walks to the nearby beach, park and forest preserve trails. Depending on the dog’s needs, structured socialization opportunities will be provided.
