Board and Train

Is your dog causing you and your family stress? Are they aggressive towards other dogs, cats or people? Are they resource guarding or chasing cars and bikes?

Let us help reduce your stress and reduce your chance of facing a potential law suit. We specialize in dog aggression 7 days a week. There are very few dog trainers that have the knowledge, equipment and confidence to handle all major aggression issues in any breed/size dog. Let Tom’s 22 years of experience work for you.

Thin Blue Line K9 will take your dog into a loving, professional atmosphere to reprogram your dog’s behaviors. We will teach your dog, and then you how clear, simple, consistent communication can turn your dog into the loving, calm and confident member of your family that you desire.

We work hard, treat your dog as we do our own pack of 6 dogs, and take pride in the high success rate we achieve. We service all of New England and offer a pick up/drop off option (rates based on distance traveled).

Your dog MUST be House Broken to participate in the Board and Train program.


$175 per day for non-aggressive
$225 per day for aggressive dogs

50% non refundable fee due at time of booking. Remainder due at time of drop off.

What our customers say

“I have had the opportunity to work with Tom for 18 years as a K9 handler, trainer, board member, and friend. He is well respected in all of these categories. In K9 training, we often speak of “your toolbox” of ideas, plans, tools, methods, and even tricks, all to use while training dogs. Tom’s toolbox is overflowing with ideas, and he is able to combine these in a manner that will get teams what they desire. I would recommend Tom’s training to anybody wanting to get the best out of their canine companion.”

Dave Dewey

“I cannot say enough about Tom as a trainer and person, his knowledge, understanding of dogs and people coupled with his years of training police dogs shone through when working with us our rescue pup. Zach came to us at 9 months with basic training after only a few sessions with Tom, Zach had better recall, listening and leash skills.  Zach’s biggest issue was being getting overly excited on the leash and although it is still a work in progress the tools that were provided by Tom continues to help us guide Zach towards the success he will need to overcome this issue.  Although we completed Zach’s training Tom continues to support and offer advice to us whenever we need it. Tom cares greatly about the dogs and people he works with I would recommend ThinbluelineK9 to anyone who is looking for a great trainer!”

“I’ve known Tom Radford for over 16 years. He is extremely professional, and knowledgeable about canine behavior. He has personally helped me and many others with with training our own service dogs. The effort he puts in to his true passion is second to none and the patience he has with dogs and their owners is a truly welcoming feeling when learning how to train your own dog. I highly recommend Tom Radford and Thin Blue Line K-9.”
