The Perfect Solution for Busy Pet Parents

This is not doggy daycare

Dog Training is a lifestyle change, it must be put into practice and use on a daily basis over a period of time, in order for it to be perfected and become automatic.  

Our Day Camp Training Program is an intensive program where your dog will work one on one with a trainer. Your dog will be immersed in learning both inside our facility and outdoors with distractions walking.

In addition to providing quality care for your dog or puppy while you’re away for the day, we offer comprehensive enrichment, socialization, and training. Enjoy a well-trained dog without interrupting your busy schedule. Browse our Daycare and Day Camp Training School options below, and let’s get started!

Our Training Academy is set up to give your dog a real life like experience. 

We want our guests to feel at home. Day Camp training takes place all around the facility as we work on manners such as settle, off the counter, (leave It). door manners, come, recall and so much more. At Day Camp, your dog will be taught to enjoy lounging around on their dog beds while learning not to jump on furniture.

We customize the training to tailor to your needs. We value your input. Let us know what you specifically want us to work on with your dog.

Our Doggy Day camp training is like no other. Every dog that comes to us will be treated like family, loved, nurtured and extremely cared for just like he/she is one of our own.  Our place will be their home away from home. We feel that day camp training must be much more than dogs playing together or being taken out of their run for just an hour of training and play time.  

Our Canine Campers will stay busy & have fun! Instead of kenneling your dog or letting them run crazy, thus promoting bad behavior- We provide a structured mentally and physically challenging program.

Day Camp will leave your dog mentally and physically satisfied. If you would like your dog to have a positive training experience while you are at work or out for the day, then Day Camp is an excellent addition to your training program.

   

We treat each dog personally, giving it its own space with toys and bedding where it can rest between lessons and play time. We alternate rest time with mental and physical exercise including play and lessons. Our canine students receive individual training and group exposure for socializing and distraction proof training.

Our staff treats each and every dog in our care as they would their own. Your pup plays and socializes with fellow pups  & lots of love and cuddles from daycare staff and trainers, and learns new skills to set her up for life.

At Day camp, your dog will have a busy day of physical activity (playtime, obstacle course), mental exercise as well as rest (quiet time). Our main goals are to refresh, reinforce and sharpen abilities, fitness train, and socialize your dog properly and carefully.

How Day Camp Training Works

We’re skilled at training dogs, but we also understand that an important part of the mix is coaching you – as a canine “parent” – to succeed in creating a healthy, happy relationship with your four-legged companion. We work hard to make learning and behavior modification a fun, informative experience for you and your pet.

Please Note: 

All off leash play will be monitored by qualified staff. Your dog will get the opportunity to play in a structured environment. These dogs are selected based on play styles and temperament, size and age. We do not allow puppies, small dogs to play with medium or large size breeds. We group play time by age, size and temperament. 

Dogs will get the socialization and exercise their owners want. We want your dog to be happy to come to Day Camp. Our goal is for your dog to go home tired but happy from mental stimulation and play.
