A personalized training experience.

Choose from one of our specialized training series or we can create a plan specific to your dog and your needs.


Our experienced trainer, Elena Gannett, uses positive reinforcement based methods with an emphasis on canine body language and psychology. The goal is to understand why dogs are misbehaving so we can find the long-term solution.

Consider Board & Train if your dog will be staying with us. It's a learning vacation for your dog.

I love dogs and dog training. That’s my life. When not training dogs at Free Range Boarding, I am active Schutzhund (IPO/IGP) sportsman, training decoy, training director of a local Schutzhund club
and a proud owner of two German shepherds (show and working lines) and mini dachshund.

I started training dogs in Russia when I was a kid. Back then, I enjoyed taking my two mixed-breed dogs to
obedience classes. Then came a period of life without dogs, but I always felt that I was missing something.

After my beach volleyball career, I returned to dog training. I read tons of books, watched videos,
learned different training systems, and took many of seminars with the most successful trainers and
sportsmen. I have led dogs in CGC, BH and Schutzhund (with best Obedience in trial) and helped many dogs owners with training and helped solve behavioral problems.

My goal is to help owners better understand their dogs, learn to read them and communicate with them to make everybody’s lives easier -- and happier.
