Modifications are available for each program based on the needs of both you and your dog. Detailed estimates given post consultation.


We know each dog, owner, and family is different so we are committed to offering you tailored solutions to meet the specific needs of you and your pup.


No matter how much time you have to devote to the training of your furry friend, we have a training program to help you and your dog reach your goals. From puppy to adult from aggression to basic obedience we have the tools and skills to make any dog, A Civilized Dog.

Get one on one time with one of our trainers and give your pup the attention he or she deserves. Learn basic obedience, behavior modification skills, tricks, and more at our training location near John Wayne Airport or in the comfort of your own home.

Number of training sessions necessary decided upon completion of free consultation. Estimates vary based on behavior assessment.

[In home training subject to travel radius.]


Let your dog enjoy group (or individual) play times, one-on-one training sessions, and plenty of love and attention at our 13,000 sq ft indoor/outdoor training facility.


Our basic board & train program consists of a 21-day stay during which we work on the foundations of basic obedience, general manners, and more! This program is a perfect intro to our training for new clients/dogs.  The kennel offers indoor/outdoor dog runs, a shaded artificial turf play area, and has multiple staff members who live on site to make sure all of the guests are happy and healthy during their time away from home.


For our existing eligible clients, we also offer shorter boarding/training stays of any length as needed!  These stays are perfect for brushing up on basic training, working through specific issues, or simply to give your pup a fun and enriching boarding experience while you're away!   To be eligible for routine boarding/training stays, your dog must have completed our basic 21-day board & train program (including recommended follow-up) or 8 hrs of private instruction.


We enjoy the dogs' playtime almost as much as the dogs do. Play groups are set up by the dogs' size and enthusiasm for play, and everybody gets multiple play times per day even if they can't socialize with other dogs. These dogs play separately with a member of the staff. All 21-day Board & Train programs include a complimentary bath, ear cleaning, and nail trim prior to pick up so your well-behaved pup can go home looking and smelling great.

[All stays require a reservation in advance.  Completion of a training program does not guarantee future boarding availability; all reservations are subject to kennel capacity limits and we often fill to capacity.  We recommend 4-8 lessons of private instruction following the initial 21-day training period to provide you the handling techniques to maintain your Civilized Dog. Bathing available upon request and at an additional charge for stays less than 21 days.  Proof of Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella vaccines, as well as a negative fecal/giardia test are required to be on file prior to check in.  Puppies must be at least 16 weeks old and finished with all puppy booster vaccines in order to stay with us.  We do not require dogs of any age to be spayed or neutered.]
