Dog Training

Want to learn the basics? Need help with a complex behavior issue? Want your dog professionally trained for you? Look no further! Our highly educated trainers are incredible.


Dogwoods is the only place I will take my dog. She attends day camp regularly and she gets so excited as soon as we pull into the parking lot. I love being able to log in and see what she is doing during the day. My dog is like one of my children and Dogwoods is the only place I would ever use. If you are looking for outstanding day camp, boarding or training classes this is the place for you. Your dog will love it.

I have been so impressed with the loving care they have given our dog, Tux. He has learned so much in his Puppy Daycamp and I believe that they are part of the reason he has potty trained so quickly. He is so much better with our older dog at home because of the socializing he has done at Dogwoods. I highly recommend them!

Dogwoods Lodge is my go-to for my beloved pup. We’ve done training here with Jessica and had amazing success and every time my husband and I go out of town (we travel often), we leave our dog with Dogwoods. Knowing that our dog is so well taken care of while we are gone makes me so comforted. I know all you dog lovers out there will love this place – check it out!

My dogs LOVE Dogwoods! They can’t wait to get there each week. Dogwoods really pays attention to the dogs’ needs and lets families know how their pets’ days were with daily report cards.

Our dog, Buddy, is always so Happy to see his friends at Dogwoods. He gets so excited. He is always wagging his tail and smiling and has to say hello to everyone when we walk through the door. A true sign he loves everyone there and they love him.

My whippets are always excited to go here. I take them both to daycamp and lodging. Dogwoods is professional, super friendly, and the property is clean and safe. Love these guys!

Love this place, and more importantly my pup loves this place! Very friendly staff, clean space, great “extras” you can add on. I first went for obedience training and thought the trainer was very knowledgeable and nice. Have had my pup stay for day camp and boarding, and she always comes back happy and rightfully tired!
