Do you and your dog try your best, but they're still jumping on your guests?

Do they run away when you call? Do they pull the leash?

These common challenges can be daunting. With professional direction, the experienced dog trainers at our Wichita and Leawood facilities will cement a better understanding between you and your dog.

By nature, dogs are incredibly smart and eager to please. When you add proper training to the mix, you can unlock your canine companion's true potential.

Lodge & Learn Training

A Lodge & Learn program is where your dog stays at our facility while going out on adventures to learn new things every day. We do all of the hard work for you. Every day starting bright and early your dog will be up and about running, playing, all the while learning appropriate play behaviors and good manners. During this time your dog will also learn different obedience commands that will make your time more enjoyable together. We believe learning should be versatile and happen in different environments with different distractions, not in a sterile training room. We offer two predefined lodge and learn courses. These programs range from basic to advanced, however we do offer custom lodge and learn programs based upon your dogs needs

Your success is our success!

Why Dog Training Is So Important

There are many benefits of training for both you and your dog.

  • Strengthens the dog/owner bond
  • Promotes obedience & control
  • Engages the canine mind & relieves boredom
  • Corrects undesirable behaviors
  • Builds self-confidence in your dog like leash-pulling, destructive chewing, and more
  • Promotes the socialization skills well-behaved pets need
  • Reduces fear & separation anxiety
  • Helps provide the proper amount of mental & physical stimulation dogs need

Lodge & Learn Training

We use a combination of approaches to provide your dog with a well-rounded training experience. Our balance of leadership and affection clears the lines of communication between pet and owner.

Our multi-faceted method allows us to face your dog's specific goals and challenges, leading to better end results. Our technique works for dogs of all ages including puppies.

We have three major goals in our training classroom:

  • Teach your dog to respond to verbal commands
  • Teach you and your family how to use our training methods outside of class
  • Ensure your dog retains their newfound knowledge
