Why Choose Dog Training at Paw Lofts?

Do you have a new puppy that you want to start off right? How about an older dog that just needs a little refresher to get back on track? Or maybe you’ve never done any training and you’re tired of your dog dragging you down the street, barking & lunging aggressively, or just acting crazy at home? Let us help you create a better relationship with your dog.

Day Play & Training is our most popular dog training option. So many dogs and their owners hate the stress of overnight board & train. We offer you the option of dropping off early morning and letting Rover learn with multiple training sessions all throughout the day while you work. Besides training sessions, he has the opportunity to have some playtime in our great daycare areas in between working with our trainer. And when he needs a rest break, he enjoys the luxury of one of our super comfortable suites. At the end of the day, you and he spend time together with the trainer so you can review and practice what he’s learned. For most people the 2 most important questions are how long does it take and how much does it cost? We only require a minimum of 2 consecutive days of training initially to teach and solidify the beginning behavior commands. A typical time frame would be 7-14 more days of training scheduled at your convenience over the ensuing weeks but we let you and your dog decide how far and how fast you would like to go. Price- $110 per day
