Our training methods are fun, focused, and   proven!

Pet Commander Kennels offers clients a Board and Train canine program that is opportune and advantageous for both canine and owner. Our program is part of our facility located in Gray Court, South Carolina, just minutes from Greenville. In our board and train program, your canine will stay with us for a minimum of 30 days while our professional dog trainers teach them how to be a well-mannered and obedient canine. Most clients choose to take advantage of this program when they have already made reservations for their canine’s vacation here at Pet Commander Kennels.

Completing our Board and Train program includes many benefits for you and your canine. Our included two follow up thirty-minute training sessions will help you work through any difficulties you may experience in transitioning your canine’s new and improved behavior. Follow up sessions are most beneficial used in public or in the home to work your dog in their environment and in realistic settings. (Offsite sessions are inclusive within a 30-mile radius from our facility; beyond that there is an additional charge of 62 cents per mile)

The Board & Train program ensures that you and your canine are set up for success as you move forward to a more mannerly and obedient member of your pack.
