4 Benefits of a Stay & Train Program for Your Dog


Think your dog could benefit from some obedience training, but simply can’t find the time in your busy schedule to squeeze in one more appointment? Stay and Train programs offered by top-quality pet resorts are a perfect solution. For pet parents who already take their pups to a pet resort for daycare and lodging, programs like these deliver convenience and peace of mind by pairing socialization and exercise with daily training sessions to reinforce basic skills.

Most importantly, by providing a positive outlet for your pup, interspersed with professional instruction, stay & train programs:

  1. Introduce dogs to new social situations. Supervised and carefully curated play sessions deliver those running, jumping, and exploring excursions that dogs crave, with new human and animal colleagues. Ultimately, this helps them maintain composure during social interactions in their day-to-day lives.
  2. Boost your dog’s confidence. Repetition and positive reinforcement are the hallmarks of a good stay and train program, and concentrated training sessions cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
  3. Reduce the effects of separation anxiety. A routine itinerary gives your dog something to look forward to each day, eliminating hours of boredom spent at home waiting for you (and the potential for mischief that could cause).
  4. Reinforce the bond between you and your dog: Training sessions are custom-tailored to your pet family’s unique needs. Structure, stimulation, and a safe environment are the key. When implemented with activities your dog loves, pickup is all smiles and wagging tails, with a reinvigorated attitude and anticipation for the next day’s excitement.
