program DETAILS

Want to go even deeper? Board and Train is our most intensive training program.  Your dog will live and learn with their trainer. During this time, they will learn house manners, public manners, and foundations for future learning. The programs are completely customizable so they can work on whatever skills you find most important. These programs are not intended for severe behavior modification. Dogs must be tolerant of other dogs, humans, and be comfortable being crated. Transportation to and from your home can be covered if needed.


  • Three or five weeks of boarding and daily training sessions.

  • Transportation to and from your home.

  • One follow up lessons after program completion

  • Email updates with photos and videos.

  • Play time with other dogs if applicable, outside time, and training time. 


All Board and Train programs for new clients start with a consultation at our training center in Edina, MN. 

During our consultation we will discuss your dog's behavior, training history, do an in-person evaluation of your dog, and give you skills you can start working on to get the ball rolling. This meeting is your consultation and and first lesson in one! During this time your trainer will help you decide what steps need to be taken to reach your goals. We'll make this decision with you based off your dog, your training goals, your lifestyle, and budget. 

Be prepared to train during your consultation! Bring your dog, any gear you typically use with them, and plenty of high value treats. After your meeting your trainer will send you an email with notes and instructions that you can refer back to at any time. Please allow up to 72 hours for us to put this report together for you. 

The consultation fee is non-refundable. All consultations take place in our facility.

Programs and rates updated 12/2019Availability is limited. Dogs stay with Hannah in her Minneapolis home. Most dogs are eligible to participate in board and train programs but we are not able to accept dogs that have a history of displaying aggressive behaviors towards humans. Dogs must be crate trained and able to exist in a home with other dogs though they do not need to be able to interact with other dogs. Board and Train is not available to new clients who plan to be out of town for for more than a few days during the duration of their dog's program. Owner involvement is required. You must be willing to follow your trainer's instructions to maintain your dog's training. Your first follow up lesson needs to be scheduled within a week after your dog returns home.

"Both my dogs did the 3 days a week day camp. They come back happy and tired and I always get an update on what was worked on so I can do it at home! There training is very customized as both my dogs had very different needs. I can't wait to take some of the other classes they offer."

"We enrolled our dog in day camp and it was great. Mary is an amazing trainer - super patient with our high anxiety dog (and us!) and gave us some simple, easy-to-implement tactics for continuing the training at home."

"Hannah has been wonderful with our 2 Springer Spaniels. She has helped us better understand how to manage/overcome various behavior issues and has really helped with obedience training. I love her new program where she picks up the dog, spends the day training and brings him home. She also takes time to video tape and talk through the events of the day. She is very flexible and reliable. Would definitely recommend her!"

We were at our wits end with our adolescent Dalmatian. After trying several trainers (both class and private sessions) we were lucky enough to find A New Leash! We enrolled Ketch in day camp and saw him thrive while learning new behaviors and communication. You will be amazed how [Mary] knows what they need and are thinking. We are thrilled and Thankful to have Mary and Hannah available for training and boarding. We received videos and pictures along with detailed training support. Highly recommend!
