Dog Training

Resorts Boarding and Play is now offering training classes for our four-legged canine friends!

Dog Training in Hamburg, NY

Training is an essential part of owning a dog and can be started at any age. Training builds confidence, provides mental stimulation, teaches your dog how to behave and strengthens your human-animal bond. Training will not only help your dog to socialize; it will also keep them safe!

Boot Camp: $70.00/day

Boot Camp is for those dogs who are not quite ready to attend daycare with other dogs. Our goal is to be able to work on certain skills that they may need in order for them to gain confidence to be in a daycare setting where they are safe and where they will keep the other dogs in our care safe as well. While the goal of Boot Camp is to eventually get your dog to participate in either Daycare or our Enrichment Academy, we cannot guarantee that this will happen. Boot Camp is based on the individual needs of the dogs and if at any point we feel that we are not able to help create success in your dog, we will end Boot Camp.

The benefits of attending Orientation:

Once Day School has finished, and their dog is confident, at this point they can attend daycare as frequently as they want and even attend our Enrichment Academy!
