Knallhart Boarding & Training is offered on a very limited basis. We keep the number of dog's that are on our property low to ensure that each dog receives the most one on one attention as we can offer. At the academy we do not exceed 6 dogs boarding at our location (this INCLUDES our boarding and training dogs).
Because of our limitation we ask that you book any boarding & training stay as far in advance as possible to ensure you do not miss out on this elite service.
New clients interested in boarding & training must schedule as consultation first. This information is found on the main "Book Services" page.
If you have completed your consultation or are a repeat client follow the steps below to get your dog(s) on the calendar:
Schedule your dog's pick up by using the links at the bottom of this instruction page. Knallhart offers a convenient pick up service for our boarding & training clients since we are located 20 mins outside of Iowa City and we spend the majority of our day in and out training dogs. Right now, for all boarding stays pick up is REQUIRED at a $10 charge.
Follow the scheduling instructions, including the intake form. If you cannot access the intake form please contact Chelsey Montgomery to get the link and password manually emailed to you.
Schedule your required drop off. This is the day and time your dog will come home.
**YOUR DOG WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE DAYS IN BETWEEN ON THE CALENDAR. IT WILL ONLY SHOW THE PICK UP AND DROP OFF. WE KNOW THEY ARE WITH US THE DAYS IN BETWEEN NO NEED TO WORRY :)
Once your dog has been scheduled for their pick up and drop off Knallhart Academy will contact you to either approve or disapprove your request based on our availability. If we are unavailable to board your dog you will be refunded the $20 pick up/ drop off fees you have paid.
Upon approval you will receive an invoice for your dog's stay. This must be paid PRIOR to pick on online or upon pick up with check or cash.
The cost of boarding & training is $85/ day + $10 pick up + $10 drop off.
