Dog Training


Make the most of your dog’s stay with us and enroll in our Lodge & Learn Training program. Your furry scholar will enjoy an individual play session to get them relaxed and ready for 45 minutes of one-on-one training with one of our experienced trainers. At the end of their 5 or 10 day program, you will receive a leash and collar specially selected for their training needs, a graduation photograph and certificate, and a meeting with our Lodge & Learn training adviser to ensure you are ready to make the most of your graduate’s new skills.

Training a dog to shake hands


Learning Fun

It’s exciting to watch your pet learn, understand and respond to the basic commands that lead to a lifetime of communication with you and your family. Repetition, consistency and reward are the keys to success in helping your dog improve their skills. While our Lodge & Learn program focuses on the basics, sometimes several training sessions are required to correct behaviors that get in the way of successful learning. The training specialists at Elaine’s Pet Resorts can provide the solid foundation that every dog needs to thrive.

We brought Honus for training and they really taught us how to help him become a very sweet boy. He loves the socialization he gets and we love the consistency of care he receives. Thanks for being so good for our family!

Rosie had a great time at Lodge and Learn and has been a star student at home since her graduation! She has been retaining everything really well with daily practice - it gave us the foundation we'd been struggling to build on our own. Thanks Elaine's!
