Our four legged students are treated like royalty at Circle Star Pet Resort. Our school is like camp for dogs! There is so much to do, they may not even miss you!

No. Learning manners only enhances the relationship between you and your dog. Dogs with good manners are included in more activities, allowed more freedom and have more fulfilling lives.

Your dog will have a very full day. First he/she will have breakfast. Then, with your permission, your dog will be matched with a buddy and let out onto the play yard. There are forts, pools, bacon flavored bubble machines, giant dog popsicles and lots of toys on the play yard. Afterwards, you dog will enjoy one of the rotating activities such as private agility lessons, golf cart rides, K9 Massage, Doggy Puzzles or Paddle Boat Rides. If your dog still has an over abundance of energy, with your permission, we will gladly teach him or her how to jog on the treadmill. When your pet is relaxed, we will begin school. These lessons are fun for dogs. Somewhere during the day, we’ll get a great photo of your dog having fun and post it on face book that night. At the end of the day, your dog will have dinner and settle in for a relaxing evening with soft lamplight and music.

We have found that the owners have a harder time being away from the dog than the dog has being away from the owner. Here at school, the doggies are very busy all day long. Although they learn so much while they are here, they also have plenty of time to exercise and play. It doesn’t make a difference if your dog stayed with us for two weeks or two years … he/she will absolutely remember you after attending school.

Yes, Circle Star Pet Resort offers an optional round-trip transportation program for your dog so that you don’t have to travel at all. We’ll teach you after he/she has successfully completed our training program in the comfort of your own home.

Absolutely! You can come visit your dog anytime you’d like. No appointments necessary. We are very proud of our operation and invite you to “drop in” on us anytime. We are open from 8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. every day of the year.

Every trainer at Circle Star Pet Resort is here because they LOVE dogs. We use our own unique combination of techniques that are very humane. We are not a one size fits all training school. We get to know your dog. Every training session is tailored to your dog’s unique personality combined with your wants and needs.

Yes, we have several full time trainers at Circle Star Pet Resort. Your dog will have training sessions with all of them so that he/she doesn’t get used to responding to just one person. Afterwards, you’ll receive and intensive, one on one, private lesson when you dog graduates. During this session, you will have as much hands on practice with your dog as you need so that your dog is responding appropriately to your commands.

Yes! After we teach your dog the basic commands and we know that he/she completely understands them, we add distractions. We use food on the ground, loose dogs, other people, cars, tractors, horses and cattle as distractions. Your dog will learn to ignore everything else but
your command.
