Board and Train from Augusta Dog Training

Boarding School at Augusta Montgomery continues the tradition of providing exceptional dog training services established 24 years ago By Augusta Dog Training.


While enrolled at our Boarding School your dog will receive personalized, one on one training customized to your needs and your dog’s unique personality. Our exclusive 4-week Boarding School Dog Training Program focuses on developing, crafting and polishing basic to advanced obedience skills. 

Boarding School is a great jump start for a dog with limited training. It is also an excellent finishing out program for dogs with previous training or for  owners seeking off leash control.

Your Goals, Our Focus

Our Board School Program specializes in good manner training based upon a strong foundation of basic obedience skills. Whether your dogs has limited training or you are seeking polished off leash performance, we can help your dog reach their training potential. Prior to training, we meet with each owner dog team to learn about your goals and your dog’s current abilities and motivators. This allows us to customize your dog’s training to match your dog’s personality and achieve your goals.

In addition to providing quality training, our goal is to provide a pleasant, comfortable and low stress training experience. As such, we limit the number of dogs per training session allowing us to provide ample one-on-one training time and personalized care.

With proper follow up by the owner, your dog’s new skill can be easily integrated into family life. Many of our graduates easily achieve a Canine Good Citizen or Therapy Dog Certification within weeks or months of completing our program!
