Our Training Philosophy
Rivermist Pet Lodge is dedicated to the health and happiness of all our guests! We believe that dog training is essential to strengthen and enhance the relationship between pet parents and their dog. When you choose to sign your dog up for our Obedience Training Program, our Trainer will work to teach and reinforce basic commands with repetition and plenty of positive reinforcement!
Train With Us!
It’s hard to make time to train your dog, but the basic skills are fundamental to building a strong relationship with your dog. While you’re away on vacation or at work, let us teach your dog a strong foundation and reinforce behaviors in a high-distraction environment. We accomplish this with numerous training sessions each day and between training sessions your dog will enjoy playtimes, snacks, and walks. We make it easy for you by offering our obedience training with overnight lodging or doggie daycare.
With personalized training to ensure great results at home, our training works! With focused and tailored training sessions, we’ll get faster results you can see. Through positive reinforcement, your pet will receive training that gives you a better relationship with more control.
About Our Trainers

She has also received specialized training in young puppy development. Our programs focus on using positive reinforcement and safe methods to train your dog through rewards and mutual respect. Shannon found her passion at a young age, teaching dogs within the organization much needed obedience skills. “I love building relationships with each dog, getting to know what they need and helping them achieve new levels of understanding between them and their handler.”
