Dog Training


Course length: 8 weeks – $149

Dog Trainer, Mike Trausch, has over 40 years experience in the canine training field. He is patient and proficient in educating owners how to teach their dogs during his basic training course. Bring the entire family to learn with you, practice those homework assignments, be repetitive in the commands he teaches and you will see great results.

Mike has created an eight week basic obedience course to accommodate dogs 6 months and older with no previous training. The Basic Obedience Training provides you and your pet a solid foundation of basic behaviors using the bond you share with your dog; eye contact, hand movement, vocal praise, treats or a favorite toy.

This training course introduces the necessary commands, such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and more. Those cues work towards loose-leash walking and off leash commands, socialization, working around distractions and problem solving any concerns you may have.

In addition to Basic Obedience and Advance Obedience Pampered Pet Services Resort & Spa offers the following:

Private Training a one hour one-on-one training lesson to aid in targeted trouble areas that your canine companion may be struggling in. He recommends all family members attend the lesson(s) to assure they understand the instructions given for a successful outcome.

Private One-on-One Training Lesson scheduled at the resort – $50 per dog per session

Private One-on-One Training Lesson scheduled at your home – start at $70 per dog per session

Training while your canine is boarding – $50 per dog per session
