Board and Train is available on a case by case basis. At this time, Nine Realms is only offering board and train for working canines (detection, tracking, patrol/police canines), and some service dogs. Pet dog board and trains are not available at this time. Length of time for service dog training is dog dependent and varies depending on dog, age, and training goals. Do not contact asking for a time frame and total cost. I cannot give that to you until I meet the dog and start training.

American Society of Canine Trainers Board and Train Certification
Dogs will receive training for detection, tracking, patrol work, etc. that meets the ASCT certification standards. Dogs will be considered fully trained and ready to work live. The training may be issued as a one time title certification similar to a title in schutzhund/AKC tracking/Nosework, or a live working title as long as the handler/owner goes through a school with the dog. This training is offered for those that already have a pet dog and want it trained in a speciffic discipline. Police and Sheriff Departments wanting a trained dog need to check the information on the police canine page.
Rates include the boarding of the dog and miles traveled by trainer. It does not include pick up of dog. Food and some pieces of equipment are not included and owners must provide it. ASCT certification/title fee is not included in the board and train cost ($165 one time for title or yearly for a live certification). Owners must pay the one time certification fee directly to ASCT once the dog finishes training and passes all certs.
Tracking is a skill that takes an immense amount of time and ability on the dog and trainer’s part. This is why the cost and lenght of time is significantly higher than detection alone. Some dogs require longer periods of time to complete training. Should training go past the standard time listed below, trainer and owner will discuss further costs.
Detection (Narcotics, Explosives, HRD (water/boat cert is not offered)- $3,995- Up to 2 months
Search and Rescue or Patrol Tracking- $5,500 – Up to 3 months
Dual Purpose Detection/Tracking- $6,995 – Up to 4 months
