Boarding and Training Camp In Ohio

We know that choosing a board and train program can be daunting. Our Maplewood, Ohio location is the perfect choice if you are looking for a nationally awarded dog trainer who truly cares about dogs and produces high-quality results. Your dog will live inside your trainer’s home, not an off-site kennel facility or garage, and will be cared for around the clock. We’re so confident you’ll be impressed with our set up that we invite you to an optional pre-registration consultation at our location, where you can take a tour of where your dog will be living during the duration of their training program (by appointment, please). Additionally, you will be provided with regular photo and video updates of your dog’s progress so you can see that they are healthy, happy, and learning. All dogs in our programs travel with their trainer on day-to-day excursions and training adventures, so you know they’ll be able to behave where you need them to. Our secure, fenced in play yards mean they can stretch their legs with new friends, chase a ball, or just get some one-on-one attention if that is more their style. Come see what makes Dog Dynamix Ohio special in terms of not only training results, but in personalized care.

Prerequisites: Dogs must be at least 6 months old for this program, and must not show any signs of reactivity, aggression, or other major behavioral concerns.

Advanced Puppy Training Dayton

5 weeks
Ohio Training, Dog Dynamix
This multi-phased program is designed to create the perfect family dog by stopping problem behaviors before they start! The Perfect Puppy Program gives you trainer support from start to finish, from potty training and socialization through off-leash obedience, via five-weeks of board and train. In the first phase of the program, your puppy is raised by a trainer for 14 days, working on crate/exercise pen training & building a positive association with going into the crate, potty training, socialization, responding to their name, handling/grooming behavior, and basic manners. Field trips ensure that your puppy has good experiences in new environments, around people and other dogs. When your puppy returns home you will receive regular check ins with your dog trainer, either virutally over over the phone, to ensure your puppy's training is kept on track. At seven months old, your puppy will return for 21 days of off leash training, including: heel, sit, down, stay, coming when called, and place (bed stay). We use motivational techniques that show the puppy how fun it is to learn and work with their owner, and then build upon those skills when they are mentally mature enough to learn advanced skills.

    About Your Ohio Dog Trainer

    Shaina has been actively training dogs since 2009, and has been with Dog Dynamix since 2016. Prior to training dogs full time, Shaina spent years working with thousands of dogs as a veterinary assistant, and earlier as a manager for a high-volume boarding and daycare facility. She caught the dog-sport bug in 2011 after bringing home her first working dog, a high-drive rocket of a dog named Versailles.

    Shaina and Versailles competed together in IPO, AKC Obedience, and Rally Obedience. Unfortunately, Versailles passed away due to health issues in April of 2021. Shaina is currently training two active competition dogs in Ringsport named Atom and Flinke — both Belgian Malinois.

    As often as possible, Shaina attends seminars and workshops held by other professional trainers skilled in various venues and methodologies. She has mentored under numerous dog trainers over the years, both in and out of Colorado. She is particularly passionate about modern e-collar training and aims to keep training as fun and motivational for both owner and dog, while still maintaining strict criteria and achieving reliable results.

    In addition to working full-time as Colorado’s Customer Care coordinator and Ohio’s lead trainer for Dog Dynamix, Shaina spends much of her “time off” traveling the country to compete in dog sports and to teach Competition Obedience seminars for various dog training clubs. Shaina takes on dog training cases teaching dogs on and off leash obedience skills, house manners, potty training, crate training, leash walking, coming when called under distraction, behavioral modification training, puppy socialization training, and more. See how she can help you and your dog!

    I dropped off a sweet, anxious, reactive dog with little to no self-control, and picked up the same sweet dog, but with an amazing ability to be calm in new surroundings, and ready to listen to me, even in the midst of excitement. He has more confidence, and is an absolute joy to be around with his new obedience skills. Thank you for giving my dog the skills to be successful and pleasant to be around, and giving me the tools to continue on the great foundation you’ve given him!” – Nicole B., Indiana

    Shaina is so amazing she really understands dogs, and takes times to really understand the client needs as well. When my husband got his first malinois and it was also his first sport dog and it was also his first dog he had no clue where... to start and I had no skills on how to coach him. Shaina played such an integral role in teaching him how to become as great of a handler and trainer as he is today! She has helped him become a serious competitor in the ring sport world. Her how to videos, her explanations, and her dedication make her one of the most amazing trainers that you could ever work with!read more

    I’ve spent a lot of time at Dog Dynamix and a lot of time with Shaina, training dogs. I’ve taken various classes taught by her and worked together in the same sport dog club for many years. To say we’ll miss her in Colorado would be an... understatement.Shaina has always proven herself to be very fair and consistent with both the dogs and trainers and she always has the dog’s best interest in mind. She’s always willing to discuss the “why” and to work to formulate a training plan that will work for both the dog and trainer. I could go on and on extolling the virtues of Shaina’s experience but to be succinct, if you have the opportunity to work with Shaina, take it and you and your dog will not regret more

    I have had the pleasure of working with Shaina in person at her seminars and online in her Competition Obedience group. She is an incredibly talented dogwoman – both as a teacher and as a handler, and has had a big influence on how I have... been approaching the training of my young Malinois. I feel fortunate our paths crossed in Colorado, and hope the fine folks of Ohio realize how lucky they are and take advantage of having such a great resource and wealth of knowledge at the new DogDynamix location! Dojo will come visit if we are ever in that part of the more

    I’ve known Shaina for many years. She’s an amazing trainer who can speak “dog.” She knows how to translate this into a language both you and your dog will understand! A-mazing!!!

    Shaina helped us even no one else could. We felt helpless and with her guidance our dog became a normal dog and well balanced. We were able to get him a companion and all live peacefully. Shaina is the best.
