Less Stress, More Calm For Your Dog

Dogs should never be a source of anxiety, chaos, or stress. From basic manners to loose-leash walking to impulse control, we help our clients learn the fundamental building blocks of being a consistent leader and we teach dogs both what to expect and what is expected of them. Our end goal is to create a balanced relationship between you and your dog with joy and fulfillment in the middle.

Daycare & Enrichment

Dog Daycare done differently! Our daily enrichment program’s mission is to send your dog home fulfilled and calm every day. Dropping your dog off with us is opening a new world for them where they learn a new way of life—how to be calm and part of a pack. More than that, our facility has just the right setting to allow dogs to play, walk, run and sniff. Be sure to read about our add-ons.

Dog Boarding

We take the boredom out of dog boarding. At Blaine Kennels, your dog doesn’t have to be sitting in a cage all day—they can be exercised, mentally stimulated, and engaged. Our structured environment provides calm, peaceful energy that dogs immediately feel, helping them settle into their temporary home away from home. Never a dull moment. We have plenty of activities to serve up plenty of fun. Be sure to read about our add-ons.

Evaluation & Private Lessons

An evaluation is an essential part of getting to know you and your dog to help you meet your goals and learn what makes your dog unique. During your dog’s evaluation we develop a custom plan that will meet your specific needs. That information is then integrated into private lessons so to help you have the dynamic that you’ve always wanted with your pet.

DogSquad Board & Train

No level of training is too big or too small for—we welcome dogs who have been deemed too difficult. Our Dog Squad program is a four to six week intensive doggy boot camp where your pet stays with us and is worked several times each day by different members of our training staff. The first step is an evaluation where we’ll get to know you and your dog and understand your goals and specifics of how we can help.

We’re happy to offer financing to make this an option for as many people as possible.

My dog just finished a 10 night stay here. We had trouble finding a kennel for him because he doesn't like other dogs. Blaine Kennels worked with him and really helped him grow! The level of care he received is out of this world. I highly recommend Blaine Kennels and plan to sign him up for more visits. I'm so grateful for their help.

I have been searching to find a place like Blaine Kennels! The level of knowledge, love, and respect they have for dogs is outstanding. You can see the level of commitment and love they give to every dog that is in their care. I wouldn't trust any other facility to care for our dogs for both a fun day at their structured day care or boarding while we are away.

Blaine Kennels is amazing with dogs! My dog went from not trusting other people to joining their mentor pack to help other dogs learn how to dog. They really are dog whisperers. I am so grateful to be able to send my dog to them. We also board her there when we go out of town and she does great.

I will send any and every dog owner I know to Blaine Kennels for behavioral training. They completely changed our relationship with our dog, who—at one point—we thought we might have to re-home. It was a Google review like this one that convinced us to give Blaine Kennels a try. We adopted our dog Ernie (a 65-pound mix) from a rescue organization when he was between eight and nine months old. He certainly had some quirks, but he’d always been pretty close to a perfect boy. Once he reached his “teenager” age, we noticed he was developing some reactivity, including fixating on other dogs on walks—not out of aggression, but out of uncertainty and excitement, though sometimes his outward manifestations appeared to be aggressive—which was very stressful for us. It got to the point where my fiancé and I were having serious conversations about our ability to meet his needs long-term; we talked many times about having to give him up. Dog Squad Training at Blaine Kennels was our Hail Mary pass; Blaine Kennels completely changed our relationship with our dog. With their initial work during his four-week overnight stay, we were set up for total success. We learned so much during our lesson visits and got to work with him around other dogs to practice real-life scenarios we'd encounter upon bringing him home (multiple staff members have seen me cry out of amazement as his progress). And with their follow-up support, we had a smooth transition back home. He’s still Ernie. His personality that we know and love was not stifled by the training. But he is a more confident, secure, and a calmer version of himself, which means he responds to situations on leash extremely differently. And in addition, if he shows signs of stress in an on-leash situation, we have tools and knowledge we did not have before Blaine Kennels; I feel confident in just about any situation with Ernie because of what he’s learned and what my fiancé and I learned from Blaine Kennels. We continue to send him to Move Your Mutts daycare once each week to ensure consistency, and we have been absolutely thrilled with the additional results we’ve seen. Thank you to the entire training staff for your commitment to our pup!

Bettering the relationship between people and their pets.

Whether you want your dog to have some fun while you’re at work all day, to feel at-ease while traveling without your pet, to get help with private training or to solve some harder behavioral challenges, we apply the same core principles and approach of dog psychology to each dog in our care. For dogs who are with us for training, we utilize a range of training techniques and tools—everything from treadmills to slip leads to e-collars—and we encourage pet owners to ask questions and get to know more about the benefits gained from all of the tools we use. As always, we’re happy to answer any questions you might have.
