The S.T.A.R. Puppy Class is for dogs under 12 months of age while the Canine Good Citizen class is for adult-minded dogs. For more information on the classes please see below.

Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT)
K9 Resort & Spa's Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) for dogs is a unique dog training system that works to teach both the dog owner and the canine new habits. Dog owners are taught how to recognize the body signals that predicts unwanted behavior such as pulling on the leash, barking, growling, lunging, etc. At the same time, dogs are taught to move away from distractions before they become fearful, angry or frustrated. In essence, Behavior Adjustment Training teaches the dog how to make the “Right Choice.”
This BAT course of six private-session trainings requires a scheduling agreement between client and trainer. Therefore, please call (760) 745-9900 for more information such as pricing or to enroll in this six-week course.
Problem Solving Training
K9 Resort & Spa's Problem Solving Training for dogs is focused on canines with “Bad Manners," such as Jumping Up, Leash Pulling, Excessive Barking, improper elimination, etc. Problem Solving Training is a 4-week program of private classes focused on “problems” as defined by the dog owner. NOTE: Fear, Frustration or Aggression are not covered in the problem solving training, instead those issues would be covered in BAT. Sessions can take place at your home, the dog park, or other venues agreed upon with our animal behaviorist-professional dog trainer to be best suited for the issues being addressed.
Board and Train
K9 Resort & Spa's Board and Train program allows clients to leave their dog with us and we do the training. At the end of the program we sit down with the client(s) and teach them what the dog has learned and how to get the most from that. This program requires a minimum 5-night stay at our facility. During the day your dog will get multiple trains each and every day while staying with us. This program is limited to obedience training only. This is not for dogs with fear, frustration or aggressive issues. Those training needs are only handled in our BAT program discussed above. For more information on this or our training programs please call (760) 745-9900.
