Dog Training

Our dog training philosophy at The Pet Resorts is to use only Force-free, Positive Reinforcement and Reward Based training.  Owners are taught to read their dog’s body language to understand what their dog is communicating to them.  We strive to enhance the human-canine bond through education, compassion, and awareness.  Training should be fun for both the owner and their dog.

At The Pet Resorts we are:

Members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the Pet Professional Guild, Veterinarian Recommended, Certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluators, and have over 35 years of experience in the animal care industry.

    GROUP DOG TRAINING CLASSES

    Group classes are a cost effective way to learn training, dog handling skills, and work your dog with the added benefit of “Distraction Proofing.” Does your dog obey you in the house but nowhere else? Outside distractions often keep dogs from paying attention. Group classes are taught at our Cumming boarding facility with other dogs, people, and all types of distractions so they provide the perfect opportunity to “fine tune” your handling skills and correct unwanted behavior problems.
