Doggie Day School

Doggie Day School at Golden Paws is a unique training program that gives your dog the ideal environment for learning and socializing. During this weekday training program, your dog will stay and train with us from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Day School dogs receive customized, one-on-one training sessions with a certified professional trainer who uses proven training methods based on love and mutual respect. Socialization time in our Daycare play yards is also included in Day School. When you go to work, your pup can go to school!

With this comprehensive 3-week program, you will receive private coaching sessions from our trainer and detailed homework assignments so you can learn how to reinforce the Day School lessons at home. On a daily basis, our trainer provides you with written report cards and is available for short meetings during pick-ups and drop-offs.

Doggie Day School will have you and your dog beggin’ to come back to learn more!

Train & Stay

Our most intensive training option, Golden Paws’ Train & Stay program will have your dog in tip top shape after three weeks of lodging at our luxury resort. Your dog will receive fifteen days of one-on-one training with our certified trainer in an environment as distracting or as private as needed. With this intense focus, we can work on training needs ranging from basic obedience to aggression issues.

During this 3-week program, your dog will receive one-on-one customized training sessions and socialization exposure.
Our Train & Stay program is a great solution if you:

  • Do not have the time or resources to train your dog on your own
  • Are going on vacation and have already planned to lodge your dog at Golden Paws
  • Are having issues with your dog that require professional attention

Train & Stay will help you develop the relationship you want with your furry friend!


Does your dog need help making friends? Socialization is a vital aspect of the happiness and overall well-being of your furry best friend. If your dog seems fearful, overly excited or nervous around other dogs or new people, our Socialization Training package is for you.

With this package, your dog will receive five days of one-on-one attention from a certified trainer who will provide safe and controlled socialization for your dog. Our trainer will gradually expose your dog to our resort, new people and other dogs with the ultimate goal of successfully introducing them into our Doggie Daycare program or simply getting them more comfortable in their surroundings. Based on your dog’s progress, additional training beyond the Socialization package may be required.

Puppy Obedience Training

New furry family member? No problem! Golden Paws has you covered. Puppies can be a handful, but our trainer is here to help teach you and your dog how to adjust to one another. Our state of the art facility is the perfect environment for socializing and desensitizing your pups, which will make a huge difference in their overall behavior and confidence! Our certified, professional trainer uses positive reinforcement methods and patience to begin encouraging desired behaviors and discouraging undesirable ones.

Whether you’re a first-time dog owner or along-time dog over, let the team at Golden Paws help you make your new pup the best he or she can be!

Lodge & Learn

Already lodging your dog at Golden Paws? You can add day training to their stay with our Lodge & Learn option! This is a day-by-day training program that is great for families that would like their dog to have a little more reinforcement and mental stimulation while they are lodging with us. Our trainer can reinforce learned behaviors, teach new tricks, work on socialization skills, you name it! This program is also a great kickstarter for our Day School or Train & Stay options.

With our Lodge & Learn program we can brush up your dog’s manners when he or she comes for a visit. We combine the fun daily activities with learning sessions, working on good manners such as sit, walking nicely on a leash, lie down, leave it, and pay attention. Lodge & Learn is available to our lodging guests Monday through Friday. It is a wonderful addition to any stay that is 5 days or more.

Private Training

Our private training sessions give you one on one time with a certified trainer who can work with you and your dog towards a specific goal. These one-hour long sessions are held at Golden Paws’ resort in our private training ring. The trainer will demonstrate and teach you how to correct any unwanted behaviors at home and on the go, with tips and tricks that will get you to stop pulling your hair out! These sessions are also appropriate for owners who really want a personalized, hands-on approach to learning how to train and handle their own dog.
