Stay and Train

What's Stay & Train?

Stay & Train is a comprehensive and immersive training experience just like a doggie sleep-away camp! While enjoying a fun and relaxing stay at Petlover Central’s lodging facility, dogs meet one-one with our certified trainers for daily training sessions based on their customized training plan. Of course, Play Stay & Learn includes lots of exercise, playtime, and pampering between training sessions. Your pet can expect:

  • Training sessions every day
  • Fun group or individual playtimes
  • Constant care and attention from our loving staff, who are on-site 24/7!
  • Private room, meals & treats, fresh water, and comfy bedding
  • Daily wellness checks
  • Plenty of potty walks

Just as importantly, Stay & Train comes with ample training knowledge and materials for you and your family. In addition to a one-on-one departure lesson with one of our trainers, you’ll receive at-home training exercises, reference material, and ongoing phone or email support with Petlover Central’s team long after the program ends.

How Does it Work?

Like any of our training programs, Stay & Train begins with a one-on-one training evaluation with a member of our staff. You’ll discuss your dog’s personality and preferences as well as your goals for training. This process helps us identify the best training approaches for your dog and begin developing your customized training plan.

Stay & Train is a uniquely successful program due to the level of immersion and consistency it provides. Playtime and exercise keep your dog mentally and physically satisfied so they’re ready to focus on each training session. Throughout the course of the program, your pup will meet and learn from multiple different trainers, helping them hone their skills independent of who’s giving the commands.

How Can We Help?

These programs are ideal for building the foundation or expanding on the basics for obedience training, home manners, and social skills. We’ll help your dog master the most important commands including sit, down, stay, come, and drop it. We like to think of these commands as a universal language between humans and dogs that help you communicate with and understand your furry family member even better than before.

We’ve helped countless dogs overcome common behavioral challenges, such as leash pulling, jumping on guests, chewing, socialization, and more. These typical concerns can be stressful for families, so reducing or eliminating them with training helps pet parents enjoy their dogs to the fullest.

What Happens Next?

Each training session during Stay & Train introduces and repeats the skills and behaviors you desire, so by pick-up time your dog will have a solid foundation of new skills ready to be exercised and built upon. That’s where our take-home exercises, resources, and phone support come in.

After the end of the program, you’ll meet one-on-one with one of our trainers for follow-up private lessons. We’ll demonstrate your dog’s new skills and show you how to continue reinforcing training well beyond Petlover Central. At-home exercises get you and your family involved in the reinforcement process. While your dog learns, responds, and receives praise from you, you’ll enjoy one of the most special pet/family bonding experiences.

For the next year after the program ends, you’ll have unlimited phone access to the training professionals at Petlover Central. Should you have any questions, need advice, or seek any other information, just give us a call. Your success is our success!
