Chet is the absolute best! I was really nervous and stressed about leaving Ruby for the first time while I was out of the country, but she had a fantastic time at camp and was all tired out from her fun when I got her back. I got pictures and updates along the way about the places she went and things she did. I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else if Chet is available next time ...

Chet was a great host for our dog over a long weekend. He had plenty of space for our pup, was very loving towards her, and had a few friends (other pups) there to to keep her company over the weekend. Chet went out of the way to allow us to pick our dog up very late in the evening as our return flight was delayed a few hours (2 a.m.). He made sure ...

Chet was the best thing for our pups! Our pit bull and our little chihuahua both loved their stay there! I love how Chet is a dog trainer and was able to let us know more information about our newly adopted pit bull! He sent us pictures while we were gone and I knew the dogs had space to run and play with his other dogs! They almost did not want to come home! We ...

Board & Train Options Now Available

As far back as I can remember, there have been dogs in my life, at one point, upwards of 30 in an unofficial rescue that my wife and I managed on our own.

Five years ago, I took a greater interest in training techniques, I discovered the positive reinforcement methods, became a certified trick dog instructor (CTDI) through Do More With Your Dog now I'm adding training to my boarding offerings.

About Chet's Home

When Chet watches your pet

I reside on three acres, there is plenty of room here for walks if your dog is partial to them, otherwise, I generally prefer to exercise dogs in my private exclusive dog park. I'm not real fond of the idea of taking other peoples dogs to public dog parks. Too many things can happen, and I wouldn't want to put your dog in any risky situations. If your dog needs daily walks beyond the exercise they get during play, let me know.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog sleeps wherever your dog wants to sleep. They will be in my room at night, if they prefer a crate for sleeping, I can accommodate that, they can have their own bed or blanket on the floor, or if they want, they can sleep on the bed. Whatever works best for them.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog will be included in all of the activities I participate in with my own dogs, and probably a few extra car rides if I am going somewhere where they can go too. I like to keep the dogs I'm watching with me if I can, but only if I don't have to leave them in the car.

Training packages are available for training your dog for a number of things, if they don't really find a crate a fun place to be, I will run them through Susan Garrett's Fun Crate Training Games. Dogs who don't like coming when called can learn the Really Reliable Recall that Leslie Nelson pioneered. I can get them started in basic nosework games, teach them some tricks you'd like them to know, or work on basic obedience and some behavioral issues.

If you would like to drop your dog off for a day training session before work, and pick them up after work in place of doggy day care, I can accommodate that as well. Let me know what your training needs are.
