Why choose Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center for group dog training

Our professional training program focuses on fostering confidence, respect and trust between your dog/puppy and you through proper socialization and positive reinforcement. All training programs are individualized, which means our training is designed to deliver immediate and lasting results. Our group classes are fun and family-friendly.

Training should start as soon as you bring your puppy/dog home. Setting boundaries and encouraging good behavior reduces stress for the dog and the family, eliminates bad behaviors, and creates a desire to learn, willingness to please, and positive environment for a lifetime of friendship.

Puppies just want to discover and play…and chew, bite and bark, so without the proper guidance, bad behaviors can set in quickly. Our puppy training program is easy to understand. Puppies become better behaved when they are given clear rules and boundaries, and when they receive positive reinforcement for good behavior.

What our clients have to say: “The trainers were very knowledgeable, personable, and informative.”
