Training & Behavior

Lodge & Learn
Enhance your dog’s boarding experience with a customized training plan. Choose from an assortment of basic obedience behaviors for our trainer to work on with your dog while he’s here. Our trainer will spend a minimum of 2 hours per stay with your dog, focusing on teaching basic behaviors while providing an outlet to release stress and pent up energy. Following your dog’s stay with us, you will receive a 60-minute transition session in which you will learn how to take over as the primary trainer.
Wisdom Workout
Looking to give your dog something fun, yet intelligent to do while he’s here with us? Our trainer will spend an hour with your dog working on socialization, confidence building, and engaging your dog’s mind with fun exercises. Your dog will receive a thorough mental workout, which can be just as exhausting as physical exercise.
Private Lesson
Private training, at your place or ours, is ideal for those who only want to work on a couple basic behaviors with their dogs. Our trainer works with you and your dog together to teach basic obedience behaviors. There will also be a portion of the session dedicated to instructing the owner on how to train, prevent, and sustain your dog’s behaviors. Each private lesson lasts 1 hour and will focus on 1-2 obedience tasks of your choice.
Refresher Lesson
Brush up on your dog’s basic obedience skills with a private refresher lesson at our facility. Over time, it is common for your dog to become a bit rusty when performing their obedience tasks. It is also helpful for the owner to be able to ask questions and make inquiries regarding their CRITICAL role as pack leader. It is recommended that you and the trainer spend approximately 15 to 20 minutes reviewing what was covered in the lesson, how your dog responded and to answer any questions you might have.
Behavior Consultation
Initial behavior consultations last from 1.5-2 hours and take place at your home. We utilize a comprehensive and multi-faceted training style. We realize that no one training technique works for all dogs. Our trainer will work with you to come up with a specialized training plan for your dog. A phone consultation is required before the start of any training program to help us better understand your dog’s needs.
Ask the Trainer
Have a question about your dog’s behavior? In this 30-minute phone consultation, you will be able to ask our trainer any questions you have about training and behavior. Following the phone consultation, you will receive written materials to aid in your training.
