WELCOME​

Everyone dreams of the All-American Dog. For some, it’s a Chocolate Lab in the backyard with the kids. For others, it’s a Goldendoodle curled up next to them. Or maybe you’re the kind who strikes out for a 5-mile jog and needs a Border Collie to keep pace

 

At Woods End, we’ve created a retreat where dogs can learn and grow in a safe, fun-filled environment. Our staff of trainers and counselors are dedicated to ensuring your dog's success. Whatever your dream, we’ll do our part to help you and your All-American Dog live together in harmony.

TRAIN

Training Camp is a comprehensive education for you and your dog. 

 

Every day is a learning opportunity at Woods End. Each camper recieves training and play sessions that provide exposure to a variety of challenges. As your puppy's knowledge increases, so do our expectations. The combination of immersive learning and ongoing socialization, with both our staff and other dogs, ensures a complete experience for all campers.

 

Each session focuses on…

TRAINING CAMP

 

Our signature program

Core Disciplines

- House Training

- House Manners

- Basic Obedience

- Appropriate Play

- Appropriate Greetings

- Leash Walking

We only use positive reinforcement. 

 

While we use treats for really difficult tasks, it’s important dogs understand there are rules in life we all have to follow. Just like children, dogs need structure, boundaries, and consistency to help them grow up to be happy, outgoing, and confident.

Each camper learns how to play without biting or jumping, to sit to greet people, 
to walk nicely on a loose leash ignoring distractions, and to settle down on a dog bed while your hands are full.

 

What else do you want to learn? We tailor our training to fit your life!

Applied Learning

Once the fundamentals have been established, it’s important to venture out into the world.

 

We work with your dog at Woods End, around the neighborhood, at the local shopping centers and pet store, and at the dog park and playground. We work with them around adults, children, and other dogs so they learn how to do everything in lots of different environments and with lots of different people.

 

The same rules apply in every situation, and good manners are always rewarded with love and play.

Homecoming is the beginning of your training! Your dog will know a lot, but will need to learn to apply these skills at home under your direction. That’s why each program includes follow-up lessons to teach you everything we’ve taught your dog. This is a team effort! 

We want your dog to be the happy, well-behaved family member you always dreamed of.

PRIVATE TUTORING

 

 

Personalized training in your home

Bead_1.png

Be the leader your student needs! With weekly lessons and ongoing support, you can help your dog achieve their fullest potential.


Private lessons focus on the core building blocks: housetraining, house manners, and basic obedience. During lessons, we'll spend time working with you, your family, and your dog so everyone knows what is expected of them.

GRID_75_150.png

It will be up to you to practice every day, being consistent and maintaining the rules, so we can move forward during your next lessons. The more you do, the more your dog will learn.

Private Tutoring is appropriate for dogs of all ages who simply need basic training, as well as for dogs who need behavior modification for more serious issues.

Sometimes you need a place to settle in for the night. Woods End is your dog's home away from home; a safe, familiar environment to sleep over with friends. 

Your camper will rest easy after a full day of activities, exploration and socialization, so you can, too.

SLEEP AWAY CAMP

 

Sleep all night

We work hard to make your life easier. 

 

Life can’t always be planned in advance.  We’re in your neighborhood almost every day so last minute requests are no problem. 

 

You can schedule a bath & blow dry if you'd like your camper to come home squeaky clean. Or even a day at the spa if it’s time for a complete grooming. 

 

We have even partnered with Dr. Randi Haberkorn, DVM, to offer on-site veterinary services. Whatever your pup needs, we are here to take care of you.
