Dog Retreat Center offers a variety of options when it comes to our private training service. We offer private dog training, a private training session once a week with our daycare and training program, and a board and training program where we work with your dog one-on-one.
Our in-home training program is for anyone who may have many dogs, small children, or other family members who reinforce undesired behaviors in your dog(s). In-home training is also beneficial if you have recently added a new dog to your pack. We offer this service so we can help you from the comfort of your home.
With our private, in-home dog training we bring expert training services to your doorstep. Our private training service includes 1.5 to 2.5 hour private sessions either at your home or another familiar location. From the initial observation to when we start working with you and your dog, we work with both of you to find a program that will help curb those unwelcome behaviors.
Private training is also available at our training center at a more economical rate.
Daycare and Training
We offer a daycare and training program that is based on the severity of your dog’s behavioral issues. In this program, we focus on training and socialization on a structured activity schedule that provides specially tailored lesson plans for your dog daily. This program can encompass 3 to 5 days per week, and can last as many weeks as your dog needs to become a calmer, more peacefully integrated member of your family. During this time, we will work on training your dog, as well as giving you and your dog homework over the weekend.
Program durations differ. We offer a 5 day, a 10 day, and a 15 day daycare and training program, each recommended based on behavior goals for your dog. We recommend this program for people who have time to practice and remain consistent in the evening. On top of the daycare and train, we offer a weekly session with you and your dog to check in and keep working the skills your dog is learning each session.
Board and Training
We also offer board and training service. With this service, your dog both trains and sleeps at our facility. Our board and training programs can last anywhere from 4 days to 6 weeks, since we base the program on the severity and nature of the dog’s behavioral issues.
In each of our board and training packages, we offer 2-3 training sessions a day where we either work with your dog one-on-one or incorporate other dogs into their training. Your dog will receive at least 2 socialization sessions per day, along with daily exercise and mental stimulation. Our board and training program is a great fit for training and reinforcing behaviors that will transfer smoothly into your home life.
Step Up Saturday
Step Up Saturday classes are available to anyone who is participating in or completed a training program. This class provides a safe and supportive place to continue practicing the training around other dogs their people. We have plenty of trainers on hand to answer questions and provide support. Classes are on Saturday's and the cost is $10.
We offer Reiki, an energy healing method, in conjunction with our dog training services. We use Reiki to help maintain your dog's well being and help prevent future illnesses. We also utilize Reiki within our dog training for dogs with severe behavior problems, such as aggression and separation anxiety. In working with your dog through Reiki, we hope to see your dog stay emotionally, mentally, and physically strong and happy. Please keep in mind that Reiki is usually used as a complementary therapy, and is not a substitute for veterinary care if your dog is sick or injured.
