Yesterday, another canine student joined FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train program. Our new student is a 7 year old Bichon Frise male dog and his name is Oriole.
Oriole did not have any previous training and is ready for some new mental challenges and for broadening his intellectual horizons.
Oriole's already learning new skills and he met his canine faculty as well: professor Shakti and professor Chopper. :)
Oriole's major fields of study include "good manner-ology", the "art of loose leash walking" and the "philosophy of barkless living", but this smart little guy's accomplishments will quite likely exceed all expectations.
Remember: it is NEVER too late to start training your dog! Dogs learn their whole lives, just like humans. Proper canine education is a chance for your dog to develop his or her potential and talents.
We are very excited about getting to know Oriole's sparkly personality and assisting him in discovering his talents.
Movie update about Oriole's progress....The training is ongoing...More updates coming soon. Stay fine-tuned!

It's been a while since one of our fantastic canine students Brodie (Board and Train program graduate and also Board and Brush-up happy camper), came here for the first time. It is hard to believe that it was over one year ago when Brodie started his Board and Train program. We were told at that time that Brodie had previously been to another training program; however Brodie's owners were still not able to control their big pup.
I finally organized some video clips from Brodie's Board and Train program into a movie. YES! It is BRODIE's big movie premiere!:) ENJOY and please feel free to share!
Bailey, the Labradoodle male dog graduated today from the FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train camp! We're proud of this sweet and very smart dog whose wonderful owners gave him a chance for proper canine education and socialization!
Bailey learned a lot of new skills and besides that he made new human and canine friends! During his stay at FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train camp in Florida, he started new canine friendships with our 2 personal dogs: Shakti (Shiloh Shepherd female) and Chopper (English working Cocker Spaniel male) and also a Board and Brush-up canine student, Jackson, a Golden Retriever male.
Way to go Bailey!
Our wonderful returning canine client, Jackson, the Golden Retriever male, is having fun at FINE-TUNED CANINES Florida Board and Brush-up camp! We had the privilege of working with Jackson at only 4 months old when he came for Board and Train camp.
Here's the movie we made at that time:
Now Jackson is all grown up (he's over 1 year old) and he has grown up to be a very handsome, sweet and well-mannered dog. His fantastic owners know that training is an ongoing process and Jackson is getting the benefit of polishing his skills and manners and also learning some new skills at our dog training Board and Brush-up camp in Florida. When Jackson's owners work or travel, they lovingly fulfill his needs and send him to FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Brush-up camp where Jackson is learning, having fun and even making new friends while experiencing proper socialization. His owners do not need to worry that Jackson might be bored or lonesome, because Jackson's day is filled with fun activities, educational playtime and proper social experiences. He even gets group training experience with 3 other dogs!
It was touching to see Jackson's reunion with his good canine friends Shakti and Chopper. They recognized each other right away and they were so happy to see each other. Jackson also met a new canine friend, Bailey (Labradoodle male) who is staying at FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train camp and getting his education.
FINE-TUNED CANINES would like to give a warm welcome to a new Board and Train canine student here at our Florida Board and Train dog training program:
BAILEY, the Labradoodle male dog.
Bailey's simply irresistible, isn't he? He's a very lucky dog, whose owners not only rescued him, but also gave him the best gift: the gift of proper canine education and socialization.
Did you know that the Labradoodle dog breed was introduced in Australia in the 1980s? The main use of the Labradoodle breed is as a guide dog and a companion.
Bailey, the Labradoodle male dog is making new friends at FINE-TUNED CANINES BOard and Train camp. Our balanced and very experienced dogs, Shakti (Shiloh Shepherd female) and Chopper (English working cocker spaniel) take very active part in training...

Bailey's learning some good manners at FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train camp. He also gets to practice proper social skills with other dogs. The dogs here are all trained and well-mannered. Bailey's sitting between our personal dogs: CHOPPER (English working Cocker Spaniel male) and SHAKTI (Shiloh Shepherd female). In the far back, there's Jackson, the Golden Retriever male and FINE-TUNED CANINES BOard and Train graduate student that takes advantage of our Board and Brush-up program.
Some of the good dog manners that we teach at FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train camp in Florida include teaching dogs self-control, patience and waiting for various things. Here 4 dogs practice calmness before being fed their breakfast.
Beginnings of new friendships...
Bailey's not lunging at bicycles anymore! A bicycle is Bailey's new friend. :)
It is hard to believe that Bailey's going home tomorrow. We will miss this cute fellow, but we're happy that he'll bring the joy to his family again. :) Bailey had lots of adventures, training experience and proper socialization experience (including learning about enjoying the companionship of other dogs) and he did great!
Here are some more photo memories:
- Proper socialization in public places: Bailey was able to see lots of people, cars, traffic, he heard lots of various sounds and smelled new smells
Bailey in a bookstore with Lexi - in a dog section of course!
