Canal Bark University

We are launching a new comprehensive training program that will include a range of options to fit your needs.

Immersion Training

Our most popular training option is our Immersion experience. While your dog enjoys a stay in our award-winning lodging accommodations, we’ll provide custom, one-on-one training sessions every day. Each lesson is carefully tailored to meet your chosen goals and overcome your specific issues. These programs are especially hands-on and consistent—your dog will work with multiple trainers, making for improved retention and responsiveness.

These all-inclusive packages include:

  • Training sessions every day
  • A private enclosure with all the comforts of our top-level service
  • Exciting group or individual play times
  • Frequent interactions and TLC from our dog-loving staff
  • Meals, treats, and fresh water
  • Daily wellness checks
  • Potty breaks

Benefits of Professional Training

Dogs are naturally smart and eager to learn, but training doesn’t often come easy at home. If you’ve tried training your dog on your own, you’ve likely run into more than your fair share of confusion and frustration. Professional trainers are here to untangle the lines of communication between you and your dog and help you establish a better relationship than ever.

  • Years of experience with dogs of all kinds. Our training team has seen it all—from lovable Labradors to bouncy Beagles, we’ve had success with dogs of all ages and personalities. Because we’re educated in multiple training techniques, we can figure out what your dog responds to best.
  • Multiple trainers on staff. Working with a team of trainers is a much more beneficial experience than working with only one trainer. When your dog works with multiple faces and voices, they learn to respond to the cue—not just the one person giving the cue. Plus, having a dedicated training staff lets us provide comprehensive follow-up support to our program graduates.
  • The best environment for learning. Our training center has all the tools we need to help your dog learn. Because we can control the amount of distractions and incentives, we can impart lasting knowledge that stands up to the world outside Canal Bark.
  • Lots of knowledge for you to keep. At the conclusion of our training programs, you’ll go home with all the tools you need to maintain your dog’s training now and in the future. We’ll equip you with practice exercises, training tips, information on your breed, and much more.
