Board and Train ?

The concept makes sense for very busy owners, but doesnt that take away from the developed bond from hands on training?

Anyone have experience? I imagine it is way expensive....

Yes.

Still, I think it might make sense for a difficult dog paired with a not-particularly-talented owner. What would be even better, though, would be board and train for the dog AND owner.

How about board and train both dog and owner in a really great setting? Like a wilderness camp with a great view, a lake with a low dock and nice beachy area, and gourmet cooking? Each person/dog would have a small cabin. Each day would be filled with training sessions, agility/herding/field work/etc., bonding time on trails, seminars on dog care, dog nutrition class, arts and crafts (fashion your own collar out of etched leather or bling-out a canvas collar). Who's up for starting this with me? Sounds delightful. How quick can I get certified as a dog trainer?

I was curious about this and got a price from a company around here that does it.

1,4500 for a 3 week boarding program...

You still have to learn how to train your dog. You can't expect to send your dog away and he/she will come back 100% trained and you don't have to continue training. To me training is like a life long journey with your dog, it continues everyday. It also creates a bond between you and your dog. I personally would not want to send my dog anywhere to be trained.
I do like the idea of a training retreat to go with my dog. That would be very cool.
