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.

Maggie is a completely different dog. Friends come to the house and don’t even recognize her! She used to jump on everyone but after participating in the Collegiate package, she’s not jumping on people anymore and it’s great! I can’t thank you enough for the training and the amazing way everything was handled, including the follow up call. We just love you guys! All my dogs have stayed with you (Casey, Molly and now Maggie) and I would not have it any other way. I don’t care about the distance. No matter where I live, I would travel to get to your facility so that my pets have the best care possible.

Puppy Training

Starting your puppy on the right path for training and socialization is imperative to raising a well-rounded pup! The primary socialization window takes place before your puppy reaches 20 weeks of age – this is the most influential stage in a puppy’s life relative to learning and developing social behavior patterns. As a leader in the pet care industry, we proudly incorporate Puppy Training Sessions into all our puppy services!

While your puppy is boarding, grooming, or attending daycare, our professional dog trainers are available to reinforce basic manners with repetition and lots of loving positive reinforcement. Training may include a variety of learned behaviors including, but not limited to, sit, down, stay, come, loose leash walking, and impulse control along with opportunities to help familiarize your pet to various experiences including grooming. The more often your puppy participates in our Puppy Training Sessions, the more confident they will be as they grow up as well-mannered pet!
