I have this pup, and he's just grand,
But just won't listen to my command
Every time I throw the ball,
He won't come back when I call,

When I say "SIT", he's just so lazy,
And looks at me as if I'm crazy.

I know there's something I can do,
perhaps its time for doggie school.
Now.....where to go.....talk to who????

Barkington Inn is the answer for you!!!!!!

-- Mary-Ellen Manko

"All I want is to make you happy - but I need a little 'help' to learn what I should do. My trainer at Barkington Inn makes learning fun and is very kind, understanding, and patient."

Let Barkington Inn help your pampered pooch become a calmer, more obedient dog. Every year thousands of dogs are euthanized due to behavioral problems that are easily fixed with proper training techniques and professional instruction.  Here is an excellent article on training: "A Tail of Obedience"

Training Descriptions:

Board -N-Train
     Day Camp
Your dog stays at Barkington Inn for 2-3 weeks and is trained 5 days a week by the instructor for 30 - 45 minutes.  Dogs stay at the facility overnight with Board-N-Train. With Day Camp, dogs are dropped off each morning and picked up each evening.  Dogs will learn all basic obedience commands. Owners are encouraged to come in at least once a week to work on training basics with the trainer (no extra cost.)  At the end of the stay, the owner is given a 30 minute private lesson before taking their dog home (no extra cost.)   Follow-up training is provided as needed.
Puppy Socialization Your puppy learns socialization skills.
Obedience Classes Classes last for one hour each week and each course runs 6 weeks.  Course topics differ depending on the level of training.  Each class has a limit of 8 dogs to provide more personal attention from the trainer. 
    Beginner This class is designed for dogs at least 3 months old with no previous obedience training.  The class focuses on basic behaviors such as sit, stay, down, heel, and come.  Owners do not bring their pets to the first class, in which training methods and the importance of positive reinforcement are discussed.
    Intermediate This class continues learning basic obedience behaviors, while using the behaviors in more challenging situations.  This includes completing behaviors off leash, standing while being examined, sitting and staying for extended periods of time.
Private Lessons One hour of personal training with the trainer  Private lessons can focus on a variety of obedience issues and can be completed in your home or at Barkington Inn.
