BOARDING & TRAINING Intensive Fast Tracked Training Programs

Is your Pooch is becoming Leader of the Pack? Has Rover become a little Unruly?
Boarding & Training is an intense program designed to address Behavioural Issues, Problem Solving and Obedience Training.

Your Dog will stay at Grand Haven Pet Resort for training and behaviour modification. Once the initial training is complete, follow up consults are booked with you to demonstrate your dog’s ability and teach you how to maintain the level of training to ensure long term results.

Boarding & Training is recommended for such issues as:
– General obedience
