We opted to Board and Train our big boy, Great Dane mix, Ozone. We chose JCM's Dog Training School because they were recommended to us. After researching we saw that they have been training dogs for a long time, including dogs for the movies. Also, their kennel was beautiful, and we liked the fact that they live right there on the property. Finally, the demonstration of their trained dog sealed the deal.
After the initial training we received extensive private in-home follow ups so we could learn what to do. We also attended several group sessions, (all included). Needless to say, our dog was wonderful, and wonderfully trained.
If you want your dog trained and don't have a lot of time, Boarding and Training is the way to go. If you want a beautifully trained, well mannered dog, JCM's is absolutely the way to go.
