can you relate to this right now?

A dog that pulls on the leash, and only listens when it wants to?

A dog that is aggressive towards friends, family, strangers or on walks?

A dog that doesn't obey inside your home or in the yard? Possibly jumps, or barks at people due to over excitement?

A dog that cannot go anywhere and is only limited to the house due to its unmanageable behavior? 


Here's How Our Board & Trains Benefit.

Enrolling your pup in a board and train program goes beyond teaching the dog obedience skills.


It's equally about equipping yourself with the knowledge to maintain their progress once they return home and effectively leveraging the tools and training they've received.


It's a journey of shifting your mindset to understand what dogs require for sustained improvement in their behavior over the long term.

When dealing with aggression, the potential for lawsuits stemming from biting incidents with people or other dogs is a serious matter. Even a dog displaying aggression over food or toys poses a risk. It's essential to tackle these behaviors directly. Through proper training, you not only help your dog handle these situations better but also gain the knowledge to maintain a well-balanced canine companion.

Offering training control for on—and off-leash, electric collar-trained dogs, which have been proven to behave in public and home settings with exemplary listening skills.


This makes it effortless for owners to maintain their advanced training and skill set, once they learn what they need to do as well.

  • Reactivity - people, dogs, and objects with no intent to harm.

  • Reactivity to cars, people, and dogs with the intent to harm.

  • Animal fighting.

  • Self Mutilation

  • Fear-Based issues.

We prioritize addressing your dog's leading issues and create a detailed plan to overcome them successfully.

Training sessions in public places are crucial for enhancing control and ensuring success in real-world situations. Dogs learn to remain calm in stimulating and dull environments alike.


Our comprehensive approach focuses on integrating this new foundation into your home and lifestyle, equipping you with the skills to train, maintain progress, and correct unwanted behaviors.


We offer daily video updates Monday through Friday to track your dog's progress and provide coaching for your learning. Our guarantee reflects the remarkable improvements your dog can achieve based on your dedication to the training process.

14 day board & train

We provide training in both stimulating and calm environments right in our home, alongside our family. This includes activities like attending cookouts and visiting public stores.

- Please note that dogs should be accustomed to spending up to 4 hours in a crate before enrolling in our program. 


This program is not suitable for overly fearful, aggressive, or reactive dogs.

In our training program, we address a variety of commands and behaviors,
- Come - Sit
- Down - Place
- Off - Leave it - No
- Jumping on people - Pulling on the leash
- Counter surfing - Excessive barking

During training, dogs gain valuable experience through 2 public outings to dog-friendly stores, practicing their skills in real-world settings.


Off-leash training with an electric collar prioritizes safety while giving dogs freedom in a controlled manner. It reinforces commands and boundaries when used correctly, ensuring reliable responses, even in distracting environments.


This approach strengthens the bond between dogs and owners, promoting trust and security for fulfilling off-leash experiences as a team. Off-leash collar training isn't just for outdoor use; it also establishes control indoors, where you spend most of your time with your dog and when hosting friends or family.


Crucially, we prioritize training you throughout the process with video updates available Monday through Friday.

nice to meet ya!


I'm Lyric

 I'm Lyric, and I've been dedicated to dog training for 14 years. As the owner of StoneHaven K9 (SHK9), and Florida's top Sheepadoodle breeder, our family is deeply committed to dogs and our clients.

Previously located in Lehigh Acres but newly relocated to Youngstown, FL.

With the help of our family of four, including two adults and two kids, we ensure that our client dogs are well-conditioned for all environments, facilitating a safe and successful training transition for them and their families. Learn more about Lyric and the business on the link below!

Are we the trainer for you?

  • What is a board and train?
    A board and train program is where the dog lives with the trainer for a period of time and then you receive training to maintain the dog at home. One program of ours is 14 days, and the other is 30. The dog stays with us the entire duration of the program and owners are receiving lessons depending on the program enrolled, and video updates during business days.
  • How do I receive updates?
    Our clients are accepted into our Facebook group, specifically for past clients, current clients and our waiting list clients. Where they are tagged individually in Facebook updates Monday through Friday. Videos of3 to 10 minutes are provided depending on what we have achieved for that day, walking you through with detailed information so you are prepared and learning as well and simply seeing your dog while they are with us. Some are sped up due to just doing repetitions, and some are drawn out if I'm coaching. We do not do Facebook updates on Saturdays or Sundays, we are closed. We do not work with clients on the weekends unless it is at group class, 1x a month. If you do not have Facebook, you would be texted Monday - Friday with YouTube video links.
  • When do I drop off?
    Lyric will touch base via text message or email about drop off time frames that are scheduled a few days prior to your scheduled arrival date. Pick up dates will be arranged the same way. Drop offs are Monday - Friday from 9 :00 am - 6:00 pm.
  • Behavioral Consulting- When do I see my dog?
    If your pup's in our behavior program, we'll have weekly hands-on sessions (during business days). The goal is to get you well-trained and informed about the process to suit your goals at home. Video updates on non-session days (Mon-Fri), and just a heads up, we're only available on business days. Be ready to adjust your schedule. Keeping up with homework is key; commit to putting in the work to avoid old issues resurfacing. We'll show you the ideal dog, but keeping it up at home is the real deal.
  • What do I do when the dog comes home?
    Your dog returns home from the board and train program with a refined skill set, prompting you as the owner to adapt and improve for optimal results. The structured routine established during training now shapes daily life, where free time becomes a reward for respectful and well-behaved behavior. Engaging your dog in mental stimulation through training reps and handler interaction for 30 to 45 minutes daily becomes a norm, with Lyric demonstrating what these exercises entail. Maintaining crate conditioning and establishing new daily habits contribute to a consistent environment conducive to success. Consistency is key to achieving desired outcomes. To replicate the trainer's success, it's essential to implement the same respectful boundaries and consistency patterns at home. While showering them with love and affection is natural, it's also crucial to strike a balance and limit excessive affection to maintain respect.
  • What is the leadership program?
    While your dog is here for a 14 day leadership program, we are tackling ON leash obedience and commands, as well as conditioning them off leash. We train the dogs off leash on our property, and then head out to the empty road working your dog off leash heeling, and following commands as well as "off leash" in the house where some dogs have very poor manners with dinner, people visiting, chewing, or barking! Off leash means they are receiving collar conditioning via remote training while learning to follow commands and directions without a actual leash on the dog, but with the remote collar when needed. We also visit stores, shopping centers, and restaurants, while they are with us. Which you will receive videos of Monday - Friday by 5:00 pm. leadership program dogs receive at least three public store outings while with us. This is for the people and dog friendly dogs only. No behavioral issues accepted.
  • When do I pay? What payments are accepted?
    When booking a spot with us we do require your program to be paid in full to reserve your training spot, as of Jan 1st, 2024. You can use credit cards, debit or bank with our invoicing system. If you need payment plans, please check out PayPal credit, and our affirm options.
  • What does my dogs day look like with you?
    A day with me at StoneHaven K9 for your pup is full of excitement, fun and structure. Dogs that stay with us take part in several training sessions through the day, among hourly play time as long as the weather permits. Our training sessions involve helping teach your dog the commands, behavior, and obedience that we recommend for all dogs, as well as any issues you specifically listed us to work on. Our dog yard is a 80 x 60 astroturfed yard, with access to a water bucket during the day when playing In the evening we do take away the water bucket so we can limit water intake before bed. When put up the dogs go back in there crates for down time, and also sleep in there. Typically unless we have outings with trained dogs, dogs are not crated for more then 3 -4 hours during the day. DOGS MUST BE CRATE TRAINED PRIOR TO ARRIVING.When we do take dogs into town, the other dogs are crated while we are away. These days are limited during the week, and our longest adventures out are 3 hours between travel & training.
  • Breed Restrictions and age
    We accept all breeds in our training programs. We have had tiny 4 pounds Chihuahuas to extremely large St Bernards and Danes.We have no breed restrictions but we do have age restrictions.The youngest we do take on dogs is 5 months of age. They need to have three serious of their DHPP vaccines and their rabies. We do raise puppies ourselves, so we do require all vaccines to be completed by the vet before accepting them. The oldest we accept dogs into our program is 6/7 years. When a dog gets into their senior, it causes more stress, unsettled behaviors, they are prone to issues with the exercise and the Florida heat. We put the dogs health first and try to recommend private lessons or group classes with seniors so there is limited stress on the dog.
