Board and Train Dog Training Programs
At Midway Dog Academy, we always encourage dog owners to start training their dog sooner rather than later since being proactive is key to having a dog without bad habits or behavior problems. Most dogs with bad habits start small and progress or manifest into other areas of their lives. That is because practice makes perfect when it comes to dogs and unwanted behaviors – they get really good at doing things we do not want them to do. Our philosophy is get started on the right foot, so you don’t have to endure the bad habits or behaviors, instead you get to enjoy your dog from the start.
Our dog training board and train programs also known as Doggy Boot Camps are among our most popular programs as well as our client’s favorite. Our board and train programs are always customized to fit our client’s needs and wants as well as tailored to fit their dogs. The length your dog stays is typically decided during your evaluation with your trainer usually, but common stay lengths are: 1 week (your dog must be approved for this stay), 10-14 day stay, and our 1 month resident camp. We believe in providing your dog with a solid foundation from the beginning in order to build their skill set, trust level, and obedience ability; which is why we train with real life training for the real world dog. Call us today to speak with a trainer about which board and train program would be best for your dog. Get started by filling out our dog training form now.

You put peace back into our home!
"We would never have been able to keep both of our dogs if it wasn't for Megan. She literally restored the balance and peace we had lost in our house when we rescued our second dog."
We cannot believe this is our dog!
"I am still not sure how she managed to train my 120lb. lab when I couldn't even control him - somehow she did though and our family is forever grateful for the AMAZING job she did with Jenks. No more sore shoulders for myself or wife. Thank you again!"
You are a miracle worker!
"I love that Megan takes the time to make sure every family member is totally on board and understands all of the training before she moves on to the next thing. She really is so much more than a dog trainer (more like a miracle worker). It's nice to know she's only a phone call away to answer any questions we may have or come across."
So grateful we found you!
"We were looking for dog training in Naperville when we came across Midway Dog Academy. We are so grateful that we found you and for the great job you did training Tilly. Thank you again."
