Our goal for dog training is to provide you with the tools and information you need to have a well-mannered dog and help you and your family build a positive relationship with your dog.

We know every dog isn’t the same, so we offer a variety of training programs, each tailored for your dog’s individual training needs that can be added to any daycare or lodging stay. Whether you’re seeking a specific type of training, obedience, or a mixture of our manners, potty, and socialization programs, you can rest assured knowing your dog is in good hands.

Puppy Social Training Program

Did you know that puppies have a critical learning period up until they are five months old? Our Puppy Social Training provides fun and safe social, physical and environmental experiences that are closely monitored to insure your puppy is meeting developmental milestones.

The Puppy Social Training program is a five (5) day program that customizes your puppy’s days of daycare. Your puppy will get three (3) private playtimes and specialized behavioral sessions to address their individual needs. At the end of the program, we will schedule an hour long consultation to review everything your puppy learned, help you learn more about what to expect with your puppy at each developmental stage, and answer any questions you may have.

Private Socialization

Do you notice your pet is hesitant or reactive around other pets and people? We will speak with you in depth during your initial call to learn more about your concerns and goals.  After a behavioral evaluation, we will meet with you to review options and discuss programs that would be the best fit for you and your dog.
