Dog Training

Dogs being trained

Our Dog Training Philosophy

Morris Animal Inn is committed to enhancing the relationship between pet parents and their dogs. We believe that good leadership is at the core of good canine behavior.  When a dog willingly obeys commands this means that behavior has truly been learned.  Positive reward-based training is proven to produce happy dogs who are willing to work; an essential component for success in teaching new behaviors!  At Morris Animal Inn, we believe that the dog and their committed pet parent, working in harmony, will enjoy an amazing relationship that having a well-behaved dog brings.

Two of my dogs recently stayed at Morris (Animal Inn) for 5 days. One of them had training while there and I have to report I got a better dog back then the one I dropped off. The training has made a HUGE difference! This was his first time there, but my other dogs have stayed before and each time they have had a blast. They want to be there when I drop them off and are plenty exhausted when I pick them up. The Inn is beautiful and clean and the staff are great. It is worth the money for me because I want them safe and well cared for.

Member of the Dog Gurus

Morris Animal Inn in Morristown, New Jersey, recognizes that the bond between an owner and their dog is a very special one. Our dog training program is designed to enhance that relationship and help your dog to be the best that he or she can be! In addition to your dog spending time with one of our trainers you will be provided with detailed instructions for reinforcement at home. We realize with today’s busy schedules sometimes you need a little help to get it started or to keep your dog on the right track.  We hope to make that as easy as possible.

Playcare Academy

Playcare™ Academy

If you have a high energy canine, Morris Animal Inn’s Playcare™ Academy could be the daycare option you’ve been looking for. For your convenience, we have combined three interactive activities into one package! Fun, learning, exercise and socialization throughout the day.

Dogs in manners training

Manners Sessions

While your dog is here for boarding, daycare or grooming, our staff will reinforce basic manners with repetition and lots of positive reinforcement.  Daily lessons may include a variety of learned behaviors including sit, come, attention work, impulse control, leash manners and more. The more often your pet participates in our Manners program, the further advanced they will become.
