  • What is an AKC Trick Dog Title
    An AKC Trick Dog Title is a recognition program by the American Kennel Club that celebrates the bond between dogs and their owners by showcasing their tricks and training skills. There are five levels (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Performer, and Elite) that a dog can earn by demonstrating a set of skills and tricks in front of an AKC-approved evaluator. The program is open to all dogs regardless of breed, age, or size, and it's a fun way to improve your dog's obedience and performance abilities. Dalmatia BnB LLC can help you prepare your dog for the AKC Trick Dog Title test and provide guidance and support throughout the process. We are also Certified Evaluators for the AKC and can award titles. Contact us for more information and start training your dog to become an AKC Trick Dog.
  • What is the Urban Good Citizen Test?
    The Urban Good Citizen Test is a program designed by the American Kennel Club to evaluate a dog's behavior and training in urban environments. It is a test that assesses a dog's ability to behave appropriately in public places such as parks, streets, stores, and other urban settings. The test consists of ten exercises that evaluate the dog's behavior in areas such as accepting a friendly stranger, walking on a loose leash, walking through a crowd, and reacting to distractions. The Urban Good Citizen Test is a great way to assess your dog's socialization and training skills and to ensure that your dog is a well-behaved canine citizen in urban environments.
  • What is an AKC STAR puppy?
    An AKC STAR puppy is a certification program offered by the American Kennel Club (AKC) for puppies under 1 year old. This program is designed to recognize and encourage responsible puppy ownership and socialization. To become an AKC STAR puppy, your puppy must attend a basic training class and pass the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test, which evaluates basic obedience skills and socialization with people and other dogs. Upon passing the test, your puppy will receive an AKC STAR Puppy medal and a certificate of achievement. This certification is a great way to set your puppy up for success in their future training and development.
  • What is a Canine Good Citizen Certificate?
    A Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate is a nationally recognized certification program that acknowledges and rewards dogs who display good manners, obedience, and behavior in public. This program is designed to promote responsible dog ownership and strengthen the bond between dogs and their owners. To obtain a CGC certificate, dogs must pass a 10-step test that evaluates their temperament, obedience, and socialization skills. The test includes tasks such as walking on a loose leash, sitting politely for petting, and coming when called. CGC certification is a great way to demonstrate that your dog is a well-behaved member of society and can be trusted in a variety of situations.
  • What’s the 3-Week Board and Train Program all about at Dalmatia BnB?
    Now, wouldn't it be great if your dog could learn all the cool skills and tricks while enjoying a fun-filled mini-vacation? That's just what our 3-week Board and Train program does! Your four-legged friend will stay at our home away from home facility where Rebecca will personally guide them through a comprehensive training program designed to meet your unique needs.
  • What happens after the 3 weeks?
    Post the 3 weeks, your dog won’t be the only one who’s learned a lot. We dedicate a handover session to you, showing you just what your dog has mastered, and how you can continue the training at home. Plus, you always have our friendly Dalmatia community here for any ongoing support!
  • What will my dog learn during the program?
    Brace yourself for some incredible transformations! Our program covers obedience commands like sit, stay, heel, and recall. We also focus on socialization, leash manners, and any specific behaviors you want us to address!
  • Can I visit my dog during the training?
    The short answer is - yes! But, we recommend limiting visits to avoid disruption in your dog's training routine. Rebecca swears by the 'immersion approach,' allowing your furry friend to fully settle into the training environment and thrive!
  • What training methods do you use?
    We use balanced training. It's a mix of methodologies that champion positive reinforcement, corrective training, clear communication and tons of play! Rebecca believes in a customized approach that respects each dog's unique personality and learning style.
  • What vaccinations are required?
    To ensure the health and safety of our guests, all dogs must be up to date on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella. Cats must have FVRCP and Rabies. Proof of vaccination is required. Your pet is required to be on preventatives for worms, fleas, and ticks.
  • How can I check on my pet during their stay?
    I send picture and video updates during your pets' stay. If you would like we can set up a live video chat for you.
  • What should I bring for overnight boarding?
    To maintain our standard of cleanliness, and to prevent items from being lost or destroyed, I ask that you leave your pets' comfort items at home. If there are special circumstances we can make an exception. I provide clean bedding, toys, and food bowls. Please bring food and treats in closed container and medications in original packaging.
  • My pet has a special diet. Can their needs be accommodated?
    In most cases, yes! I have the ability to freeze or refrigerate foods. If feeding requires special equipment or a veterinarian to administer it, I would recommend boarding with a local veterinarian instead.
  • Can I pick a male or a female?
    Pick order will determine this. If you apply and put your deposit in early in the pick order the greater chance you will have in getting to choose your preferred sex.
  • How old are the puppies when I can bring them home?
    Puppies will be 8 weeks old at pick up time.
  • Will the puppy be AKC registered?
