Board & Train

You would love to have the freedom to truly enjoy your dog, if they would only listen better!  Does your dog pull you on walks, jump on people, or just not come back to you when you called?

That's why we are here.  Whether you need help with some of your dog's behaviors (yes, all of them) or your dog is just plain refusing to listen to you we will work together with you to fix it all as quickly as we can.  We love people as much as dogs and we want to come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle and preferences.  We would love to help you just like the hundreds of families we have helped already.  Each of our Board & Train programs consists of your dog boarding with us for an amount of time based on each program.  Call us today at 802-851-8375 to discuss your options.

Dream Dog program    4 Weeks

Imagine the peace of mind of your dog’s training being done the fastest, most effective and enjoyable way… perfect for your busy life.  Not only will we make sure your dog has excellent house manners and listens to you even around distractions, we’ll also make sure your dog listens when they don’t have a leash on! 

That means that you can enjoy your dog in every situation, even on hikes, out in the yard, in parks, and even around the house without having to get the leash or grab their collar first.  Just imagine being able to call your dog from anywhere in the house, and they come the first time without you having to chase them around or raise your voice at all!  Even when you have doorbells or squirrels tempting them. 

Yes, even your dog can do that!

the Rebuilder (For severe aggression) 

Do you have a dog that is aggressive?  Does he/she lunge and try to bite other people/dogs?  Are you getting frustrated dealing with him/her every day?  Our Rebuilding program is designed to improve your dog’s social skills around people and dogs.  In order for our dog’s behavior to change, we have to change the way we interact with them.  Your dog will spend every day around dogs and will be handled by multiple trainers.  We will show your dog that you control everything in his/her life and that nothing in life is free.  These are cases that can’t be taken lightly and rebuilding from aggression can be a long process.  This is an excellent program for owners who are ready to commit to improve their dog's life from the ground up.

Thank you SO much for this amazing training! It was so cool to see this process through and the behavioral changes that happened over the course of the six week training period - I can’t wait to see our continued growth. We were given the tools and confidence to train our fur babies for a lifetime. Winston and I learned so much and can’t wait to continue working with Vt B n B! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

My dog is a happy and balanced guy whenever he gets to spend the day with Ian and the pack. Ian’s insights about dog behavior always help me to understand my dog more and be a better dog owner.
— Margaret Pitkin
Ian and his staff got all three of our dogs on the same page, setting us up for a happy multi-dog household. Their support and encouragement during the transition back home were invaluable, and provided us with the tools we need to keep things running smoothly and under control — so much so that we recently got a puppy, who’s now getting all the proper training from us at home. Implementing all the tools was a lot of effort on our part in the beginning, but well worth it.
