The Training Process

Our training program not only helps to reinforce positive behaviors but also removes bad habits. We start by drilling the basic commands every dog should know. Even if your dog knows the basics, we will make sure they listen every time.
We also focus on:
· Socialization
· Exercise
· Breaking bad habits
· Mental stimulation
We approach certain behaviors your dog should not be engaging in head-on. Some of the bad habits we address at Stayyy include:
· Jumping up on people
· Leash pulling
· Rushing in or out the door
· Excessive barking
· Eating off the counter
· Stealing food from other animals
· Charging at other animals
Socialization is an extremely important aspect of dog training, and we focus on proper socialization. We provide your pup with lots of opportunities to meet other dogs and learn to be part of a pack.


The Day Camp at Stayyy is the perfect place for your dog to receive basic training and learn the fundamentals of obedience. Our day camp facility is immersive, and it allows our coaches to work closely with your puppy or adult dog. You simply drop your dog off at day camp at the beginning of the day and we’ll take it from there. We are available to watch your dog for a short period or the entire day!
We offer flexible training hours, and our day camp program is very customer-friendly. Let us know when you want to drop off and pick up your dog (within our business hours) and we will make sure we are available to greet your pup. Please let us know if your dog has any special needs. We are able to accommodate dogs with special needs and ensure their comfort. Our seasoned handlers are trained to work with dogs that have all kinds of special needs.
We’ll make sure to send your pup off with some extra goodies when they leave the facility. From there, you can continue to work with them when you get home.

Leadership Program

Dogs are used to living in packs. No matter how they are raised, they have a pack mentality. It’s important for your pup to understand their position in the pack. If they don’t, they may fight you for leadership and independence. This leads to a lot of behavioral issues. You need to become the pack leader. Our leadership program is designed to ensure you learn how to be the alpha of your pack.

Board & Train

Our boarding and training program is excellent for dogs that need a little extra attention.
There is a misconception that some breeds and dogs are born mean and aggressive. This simply isn’t the case. Aggression and moodiness are learned behaviors. Because of this, they can be unlearned. With that said, more problematic behaviors can take some extra time to address. Because of this, we recommend boarding and training services for dogs that require some extra attention. During our intensive training services your dog will unlearn negative behaviors and will be taught how to express themselves in a positive way.
No matter what your dog’s breed, gender, or age is, our experts can work with them to resolve undesirable behaviors.


While it’s fun to let your dog be a dog, they also need to be obedient. This is one of the most important parts of dog ownership. They can’t ignore your commands. While having them ignore your commands can be annoying when you are by yourself, it can become dangerous when you are out and about or if you have guests over. Your dog ignoring you can lead to destroyed furniture, pottying in the home, barking, and even biting. They may bite you or worse, they may bite someone during a walk! You need to make sure your dog is obedient and listens when you tell them to do things. Trust us, your dog will be happier when they aren’t constantly butting heads with you.
Our dog training programs start with a foundation of obedience training. Once they’ve undergone basic obedience training, we can work with them to address specific issues.

Group Classes

After we’ve ensured your dog is properly trained, your dog and you will be able to attend group classes. During our group classes, dogs are exposed to a controlled and well-monitored environment where they are able to meet and socialize with other dogs. During our sessions, we gradually increase the level of distraction to watch and note your pup’s improvement. In order to ensure your puppy grows up to be a well-trained and friendly adult dog, it’s important to socialize them at a young age. We can work with your puppy to ensure they grow up having positive interactions with other dogs. With that said, we are also able to work with dogs of all ages.
We provide group classes not only at our training facilities, but also at various beaches, parks, and other dog-friendly venues. This allows your dog to interact with these environments and learn without being confined to an indoor space.

What to Know About Dog Boarding

If you are going to be away for a while and you don’t want to bug your friends or family members, check out our dog boarding services! With Stayyy, you can rest assured that your dog will have lots of opportunities to run around, exercise, play, and socialize with other dogs while staying at our boarding facility in North Side. It’s very important for your dog to sniff around, go potty, and stretch their legs. That’s why we focus on daily walks. Each dog has their own unique needs, so we make sure to tailor the walking experience of each dog in our care to meet their specific needs.
In order to board your pup, we’ll need current vaccination records and written proof of DHLPP and Bordetella before check-in. If your pup is over four months old, we’ll also need rabies vaccination records. This is for the protection of our staff and our other furry guests.
Some things you’ll want to consider when preparing for your pup’s vacation include:
· A feeding schedule
· Dog food and treats
· Bedding
· Kennel crate (if trained)
· Blankets and toys your dog loves
We look forward to hosting your puppy or adult dog in our dog hotel!

What does it mean to be a Pack Leader?

So, what exactly is a “pack leader?” And why do you need to be one?
Something we sometimes run into with dog owners is their difficulty understanding the concept that dogs are always looking for a master-subject relationship. Many dog owners want to see their dogs as equals. The problem is their dogs don’t see them the same way. Dogs need a master to follow. If not, they will step up and become pack leader.
Just like a parent is a leader to a child, you need to lead your dog and provide them with the guidance that they need to succeed and thrive. This will help your dog to better understand and respect the boundaries you put in place for them.
To create a sense of harmony in your household, establish yourself as the pack leader. You can then build a healthy and happy relationship with your dog. This will take some work, but it will be worth it!
