(Evaluation required)

The most popular service we offer is the Next Gen Aussies Collies & Shepherd’s Board & Train program. Thus far we’ve had more than 100 dogs go through the program, and the results have been amazing. Humbly we feel like Next Gen ACS with our new training facility and amazing staff is one of the best California has to offer. And we’re only going to get better.


While we use tools and training techniques that return results, the truth is every dog that comes to us gets unique attention specific to the dog itself and its individual needs. We understand something that works with one dog might not work with another. Behavioral issues addressed include leash reactivity, resource guarding, separation anxiety, and nervous behaviors, but there’s nuances to each.

  • The dogs will be at the training facility just yards away from the residence so if there are issues they can be taken care of immediately.

  • The dogs will be worked multiple times a day and their progress is recorded and evaluated each day.

  • Each dog will be taken on a number of field trips to expose them to real life situations.

  • The Next Gen ACS facility has A/C and heaters so we can control the temperature when it gets too hot or cold. And if the weather is bad, the barn has treadmills so the dogs will still get the necessary work and exercise.

  • The facility is sanitized multiple times a day and each dog will have their own crate that will only be for them while they are there.

  • We have an on-site professional level agility and lure course to help stimulate the dogs minds and build confidence.

  • We do a lot of pack work so that dogs can learn from each other.

  • Dogs will be exposed to multiple trainers. We want the dog not to get used to one person, but rather to learn the behaviors so when they return to the owner the transition is smooth.

  • The relationship between Next Gen ACS and the dog owners doesn’t end when the board and train is over. Follow up training sessions are built into the program. There will be group refresher classes both on site and virtually. Alumni are qualified to use our boarding anytime there’s space. The dogs that go through our program are part of the family.

To qualify for the Next Gen ACS Board & Train, the dog must be at least six months old, crate and potty trained. An evaluation to see if we’re a good fit is required before sign up.

The length of the board and train can vary. Some use us for 2-weeks and others have gone multiple months.

Dogs will go home with the best tools needed to continue their training. The only exception is an E-Collar which if needed can be purchased at a discount.

The only thing you need to bring is the dog and its food. We’ll take care of the rest.
