Play and Train

What's Play & Train?

Wouldn’t it be nice to drop off your dog “at school” while you work, travel, or run errands? We agree—and that’s exactly what Petlover Central’s Play & Train program is like! Play & Train brings our fun and enriching dog daycare together with our highly successful training programs so your dog can have a great time while learning important skills—all in a day’s work.

Our Play & Train Program

Play & Train is a special offshoot of our furry fan-favorite doggie daycare experience. Dog daycare at Petlover Central is a secure and enriching place for dogs to exercise, socialize, and have fun while their mom or dad’s away. Play & Train takes this concept a step further, adding training sessions in between playtimes. Training sessions are customized for your dog’s individual personality and training plan, which is established following a one-on-one training evaluation with our professional team.

Dog Daycare – It's a Dog's Life

You can read more about Petlover Central’s dog daycare program here, but we’ve picked out the highlights for you. Here are some things your pup can expect during the “Play” portion of Play & Train:

  • Four climate-controlled indoor playrooms outfitted with doggie playground equipment and fun toys
  • Total staff supervision and interactive playtimes with staff members
  • Carefully chosen playgroups based on your dog’s size, age, breed, and energy level
  • Does your pup prefer humans? We can’t wait to shower them in attention and love in our one-on-one daycare programs
  • We even have live webcams in our play areas so you can see all the fun for yourself!

Private Training Sessions Every Day

In between playtimes, Play & Train students meet one-on-one with our training professionals for a custom-tailored lesson. Each day includes multiple lessons, with each lesson building on the last. Play & Train is the perfect environment to introduce and enhance the basics, including:

  • Sit, stay, and lay down
  • Drop it and leave it
  • Coming when called
  • Good leash manners
  • Polite greetings
  • And much more

Another reason Play & Train is special is how ready your dog is for learning come training time. After playing, romping, and exercising with friends (canine or human!) your dog will be mentally and physically satisfied. This enhances their focus and helps them stay attentive during each lesson. Of course, ample rest time in comfy private rooms is included to keep pets recharged and relaxed!
