Oahu’s Premier Boarding School for Dogs
Where every minute is a learning opportunity for your dog
Dogs board, train and become part of our family in our home-based program outside Honolulu. It’s the fastest and most effective way we know to move your pup to the head of the class.
At A to Z Dog Training’s Boarding School, we teach and reinforce the lessons you want your dog to learn for successful family life. Our professional dog trainer, Tammy Nunes has worked with every personality and seen every kind of dog obedience problem. She knows how to deal with them all! In between lessons, which happen throughout the day, we’ll give your dog all the exercise, comfort and loving she could ask for.
We welcome dogs of all ages, but recommend starting the training young, before your puppy has time to develop undesired behaviors.
How our program works
Boarding School is completely personalized for your dog. It’s based on your goals, your dog’s personality and the amount of time your dog is with us. We cater our program to fit your needs; however we recommend our 2-week program to jump start your dogs training and our 4-week program if you want a strong foundation for your dog and to solidify behaviors trained.
- Dogs should be 4 months or older and have had time to bond with you and your family*.
- Dogs live indoors in a safe, clean and comfortable area.
- We train your dog throughout the day, indoors, in our fenced-in yard, and out in the community.
- We limit our program to 3 compatible dogs per session.
What your dog will learn
Each session is designed to teach your dog manners and the behaviors that are important to you. For dogs who attend Boarding School for under 4 weeks, we’ll work on your top 3 goals and add in additional lessons as appropriate. We’ll send you home with a calmer, more attentive dog you can be proud of. And we’ll give you the tools you need to maintain the behaviors at home.
What it costs:
2 weeks $1680.00
4 weeks $3080.00
Day rates available upon request.
*Please Note: For Boarding School, dogs should be housebroken. We reinforce that behavior with crate training and frequent opportunities to go outside.

What our clients say about A to Z Dog Training
“Thank you so much Tammy! Scarlett is such a different dog after attending your boarding school! I feel so comfortable with Scarlett that I take her to pick up my girls from school. With the tools you gave us we feel comfortable taking her to the beach and to the park. We are not afraid that she will pull us over while walking her. My girls are enjoying her so much more now!”
