TRAINING

At Ruff Life Training & Resort, wdon't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to dog training. That's why we offer customized dog training packages designed around you and your dog. Whether you're looking for some basic doggie etiquette training or need more intense training, we're here to help. Our approach focuses on creating well-behaved dogs who make good choices, rather than obedient dogs who just respond to commands. We can't wait to meet you and your fur babies!

 

Full Day

Training

Whether your furry family member is a precocious puppy, a terrible toddler, or a antagonistic adult dog, our training is a great place to start. Your four-legged pal will learn socialization etiquette alongside other dogs and children. They'll begin to learn leash etiquette, boundaries, and many other important skills. Our focus will be to encourage your dog to be well behaved rather than just obedient. We close the day with a parent review and training session so that you can reinforce your fur baby's good behaviors when you get home. We'll also post videos and updates throughout the day so you can see how and what your fur child is learning so when you arrive for your review lesson we can focus on teaching you.

We'll then build on those skills to meet your goals. Our focus will be to encourage your dog to be well behaved rather than just obedient using pressure and positive encouragement.

Ruff Life Training & Resort is a locally owned and family-run business, so when you board your fur babies with us, we treat them like family. We provide a structured, fun environment so your dogs will feel right at home, plus your furry pals will receive 1-on-1, personalized training during their stay, if here for training. We'll be sure that your dogs have loads of fun and get lots of love. For best results, we recommend a minimum of 4 days for any of our board and train package (excluding Sundays). As many dogs are nervous their first time away from home or staying in a strange place, we recommend that you bring your furry family member in for a Play Day to get the jitters out before a time away from their human family.

SUNDAYS ARE FAMILY TIME AT THE HOOVER RESIDENCE AND WE'LL INCLUDE YOUR FURRY KIDS IN ALL THE FUN AND ADVENTURE. 

THERE WILL BE NO TRAINING OR LEAVING LESSONS ON SUNDAYS.
