Dog Training

LEVELS CLASSES ARE CLOSED UNTIL JANUARY 6 DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS AND OUR HOLIDAY SCHEDULE

IF YOU ARE A CURRENT LEVELS MEMBER, YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED BY THE TIME WE ARE CLOSED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE DIFFICULTY.

The onsite training classes at Doggy Haven Resort in Bothell are led by our accomplished certified dog trainers:  Nichole TeSelle, and Kim Hunter. In-home training is provided by Nichole TeSelle. As a team of lifelong learners, our dog trainers use only the best and most current training methods. All of us at Doggy Haven Resort are “people people” as well as “dog people.” Knowledge of our subject, passion for what we teach and compassion for both you and your dog makes our training program the best possible learning environment in the Seattle area.

Doggy Haven is pleased to offer comprehensive dog training using positive and rewarding education methods with group and one-on-one training options to suit the unique needs of you and your dog(s)! From first-timers and puppies to troublesome teens and totally trained seniors, we have a Level for you! The training you receive and use changes how you feel about your dog, resulting in better behavior and a stronger relationship.

Our educators have availability that can be found on our training calendar and are held at convenient times in our Field House, which was specially designed for dog training. No matter where you’re coming from or headed to in the Seattle area, we make it easy for you to plan your schedule so you and your dog can get the best training possible!

Board and Train

Board & train is a 10-day program (2 weeks Mon – Fri) $1,150. Board & train includes, overnight boarding, daily group play with activities, daily report cards, A trainer will work with your dog individually one hour per day during the 10-day program on the following skills: 

  • Attention to handler
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Come
  • Stay
  • Leave it
  • Wait at doors
  • Loose leash walking
  • Heel position

Please also keep in mind that our board & train program gets your dog these new skills, but it is up to you to keep them moving forward once you get them home.  It is not a miracle two-week program where your dog becomes a robot.  You get the same dog back just with better manners!
