board & train

Pondside now offers a full range of board and training services to help your dog live a well-balanced life. Our programs range from puppy training to off-leash training as well as behavior modification for issues such as separation anxiety and leash reactivity. We're here to help! Opt for two or three weeks, based on the specific goals you have for your pup. Email us for our program information today and we will be in touch regarding the best fit for your dog 


Let your fur balls run, jump and play with their friends at Pondside! At daycare, your dog will have a great time socializing with its peers. Doggie daycare helps both you and your pet because while you are out doing human stuff, your fur baby is having a blast doing dog stuff!

We require that your dog be up-to-date on rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations (within 6 months), negative fecal (within 6 months), spayed or neutered if older than 6 months of age.

day school

One of the most popular programs at the Pondside is our Day School. It is a convenient and effective way to put you and your dog on the fast track to mastering obedience and improving overall behavior. This program is offered in two or three week packages. Your dog will receive the same workouts that s/he would in our Board and Train Program, but you drop off in the morning and pick up in the evening. The program runs weekly from Monday through Friday and includes a one hour lesson with each week of training.

A great foundation for your dog, offers help with a number of issues, ranging from basic obedience to on-leash manners (without the sleepovers). We will work with you to understand what style of training will be most appropriate for your family and dog.
