Stay-n-Train

Doggieology101 Stay-n-Train

For dogs older than 6 months of age with no behavioral issues (fear, anxiety, aggression, etc)

Our permission based stay-n-train program runs for a minimum of 6 nights. By living in this structured rich environment,  your dog will be immersed in rules, direction and guidance during training and play that will create a new foundation and state-of-mind that will make it easy for you to continue the training at your home.  While your dog is with me, he/she becomes one of the family and will receive daily leadership and obedience training. We will work on basic commands, social skills with other dogs and a great deal of leadership/foundation work which includes mastering the walk, threshold work, crate and duration commands such as place.

Your dog will go on field trips to stores, trails, downtown areas areas where we’ll practice good dog manners while walking and greeting strangers. He will also have playtime with other dogs and at least one daily 45-60 minute pack walk through the woods on our 10-acre property. She will ride with me in the car to various locations and practice obedience and good leash manners wherever we go! After a busy day, he will sleep along with the other seven dogs in our pack!

Below you will find general descriptions of the Stay-n-Train programs. Programs can be often tailored to match your goals and the needs of your dog.

  • Sit
