Day Training

Our convenient Day Training options allow you to drop your pet off for training each day while you work or run errands. We offer sessions with or without Group Play. All of our sessions come with a consultation with our trainer to go over progress. You can speak to our trainer in advance to discuss the behaviors you want to work on. We guarantee your pet will have a fun and enjoyable experience! Owners are not permitted to stay with their pet for Day Training options.

 

Day Training (5 weekly sessions) - $340*

Day training is a half day of training with three to four 20-minute sessions of training per day. The training will be once weekly. The day you are available per week will determine which trainer you will be scheduled with. The training is so rigorous your dog will need multiple breaks throughout the sessions. Our morning training session will start at 8 a.m., and your scheduled post consultation will be between 11 a.m. -12 p.m.. Our afternoon training session will start at 1:30 p.m. with scheduled post consultation times between 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Day Training with Group Play or Daycare (5 weekly sessions) - $390*

Day training with group play or daycare is a half day of training with three to four 20-minute sessions of training per day. The training will be once weekly. The day you are available per week will determine which trainer you will be scheduled with. The training is so rigorous your dog will need multiple breaks throughout the sessions. If you are not able to pick your dog up after the half-day session, our convenient Group Play or Daycare with training can accommodate that. Your dog will be able to enjoy a fun half-day of group play or daycare with a 15-minute playtime and regular walks, along with their training sessions. You will then schedule post consultation between 4:30-5:30 p.m. for pick-up at the end of the day.

*Dogs who sign up for regular training sessions but end up needing behavior modification may incur an additional $50 fee to cover more extensive training needs.

Private Sessions

If you feel your pet would benefit from one-on-one time with our trainer, then private lessons may be for you. Private sessions allow you to get expert advice tailored to your dog's specific needs in areas such as house training, basic obedience, problem behaviors, jumping and much more. Since private lessons cover a wide variety of issues, we invite you to speak to our trainer about your pet's specific needs. All private lessons are one hour and are held at Red Bluff Pet Resort unless other arrangements are made with our trainer.

 

This is a one-on-one training session with you and your dog for an hour once weekly. This can consist of any trick sessions or specialty training where you would like to work on specific behaviors. Our private training sessions are a good way to teach you what to do at home. This helps your dog learn how to respect you as the leader in the household, and you to become the pack leader your dog trusts.

Behavior Modification

Behavioral Modification includes issues such as anxiety, aggression, dominance, hyperactivity, constant chewing/ digging/ barking etc. In this training program, your dog will learn basic obedience listed above, structured walks, and we will teach you to add more structure within your household. Behavior Modification can be either in a private training session or a day training session (with no group play). Pet owners should be 100% compliant and consistent in maintaining the management techniques in the household. The only way you will get a change in your home is to change the structure and pack order in your home.
