Dog Training Classes

At Henderson Pet Resort, we believe that dog training enhances the relationship between you and your dog.

We are committed to helping you achieve a happy and well-behaved dog. We utilize positive reward-based training, which is proven to produce happy dogs that are willing to learn new behaviors. We know your schedule is busy so we hope to make it as easy as possible with several training options to choose from.

Reactive Rover Training- March 31, 2018

Does your dog whine, bark, or lunge on leash around other dogs?  In this class, we will teach you why they do it, and how to systematically counter condition your dog’s reaction to being around other dogs on leash.
This class consists of two sessions:

First session is a 2 hour workshop without dogs utilizing education materials and hands on foundation exercises to begin building the skills for use outside.

Second session is a half hour private training with your dog arranged with the instructor within two weeks of the first session (location and time tbd with owner and trainer).
