A.C.I. also offers board and train programs at our Dixon, California, kennel facility for the canine that needs training when your busy schedule does not permit. Your dog stays at our resort for a working vacation. They receive the personal care and training of your choice. After training is completed, the handler receives an accelerated training regiment for handlers.

Behavior Modification Programs
At A.C.I., we believe solving a pet behavior problem is rarely simple. It requires your mental effort and often some emotional adjustments on the part of all family members to solve the behavioral problem. Each behavioral modification program is based on a case-by-case basis.
Please understand anything you may have done that helped create a problem was done without harmful intent. No guilt feelings are warranted, only a resolve to eliminate the problem.
Duration
Varies, based on the problem being solved. Most sessions are once a week for one hour and can last from six to eight weeks. Behavioral problems are the result of interactions between your pet and its people, plus other elements in their environment.

Agility (Practical)
Practical Agility includes hurdle jumps, broad jumps, “A” frame, plank walks, tunnel, weave poles, and directional work. The class focuses on execution of agility regiments, not the speed which the dog can complete an agility course.
Eligibility
Successfully completed Basic Obedience class and an age depending on breed and size of dog.
Duration
Varies, based on the discipline.
