Training Philosophy & Methods
Learning builds confidence. Confidence builds trust. Trust increases happiness.
At Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center, we use dog-friendly techniques, including positive reinforcement training. All training is individualized based on breed, age and temperament. There is no one size fits all approach.
A well-trained dog is a pleasure to be around. When owners tell us they consistently receive compliments on their dog’s good behavior, we could not be more proud of our student’s accomplishments and the family’s happiness!
Our dog training system is designed to do four things:
- Helps identify your goals and expectations to create a custom plan
- Teaches your dog to properly respond to verbal commands
- Uses positive reinforcement and purposeful distractions to teach your dog the desired behavior
- Provides ongoing support and coaching to ensure confidence and success

I’m absolutely thrilled with the change in my dog, Bugsy, since attending Play and Learn at the Holiday House Pet Resort. Bugsy is a 7lb Chorki. He is very smart, but was afraid of larger dogs–barking and lunging at other dogs. After attending ‘Play and Learn’, Bugsy is calm and obedient when walking on the leash and is no longer afraid of other dogs. In fact, he stands in the middle of all the large dogs at Holiday House Resort Daycare and definitely shows no fear! Thank you Holiday House Pet Resort and your wonderful staff of trainers!

We offer additional training options to help customize a program that fits your dog’s individual needs. Speak with a member of our training staff for more details.
