Play & Train

At Paws & Play Dog Resort & Training Center, we are constantly continuing education, doing case studies, and diving head first into the latest canine cognition research. All our programs and techniques are science based and tailored to the individual dog and family. All of which is the basis for our newest training program: Play & Train!

Recent scientific studies show that dogs display accelerated learning and retain up to 40% more information per session when training is done in shorter sessions roughly a week apart and, end in play or a fun activity.

This program is great for teaching basic and advanced skills like sit, down, come, stay, heel, leave-it, place, and more. It’s also a great program for helping dogs with socialization to humans and other dogs. Some behavior modification can be addressed during this program.
