Dreaming of a well-behaved companion? Whether you are looking for your dog to come when called, calm, relaxed walks or help cleaning up behavioral problems, we offer a variety of programs to suit each individual dog and owner. If you are excited to participate in your dog’s training, our lesson programs offer owners the opportunity to be very involved in their dog’s education. For more challenging dogs or owners that don’t live nearby, we offer a board and train program. The lesson programs and board and train program cover the same skills, with the lesson programs giving owners more face-to-face time and board and train programs offering more intensive training for each dog.

Pack and Play Program

Shea-9 Dog Training and Shorthairs & Shotguns have teamed up to provide our clients with an opportunity to gift their dog days filled with adventure and fun and the joys of a happy, stable dog!

The Pack and Play Program is a perfectly blended combination of daycare, camp and school. Each day is a unique adventure that balances structured activities and playtime to promote mentally, emotionally, and physically fit dogs!What to Expect

Pack and Play Program will be offered on scheduled days 1-2 times per week. Although each day will be slightly different, the program will entail a structured, pack activity in the morning and play time in the afternoon. You may drop your pup off at Shea-9 Dog Training in Mocksville, NC between the hours of 7:30 AM and 9 AM. At 9 AM, the adventure begins! We will load up and head to the destination for the day! This might be a pack walk at a park, a hike in the woods, or swimming at a lake! These structured field trips will implement proper obedience practices in fun, new locations! Once our structured activity is finished, we will head back to Shea-9 Dog Training for a quick break to cool off and rehydrate. The remainder of the afternoon will be play time! This time may include a walk around the farm, a kiddie pool for the hot days or free time in the fields! This playtime will be actively managed for appropriate behavior to ensure all dogs are properly advocated for. Pack and Play Program will end at 4 PM and dogs will be crated until pick up. Pick up time will be between 4 PM and 7 PM.

Why A Pack Program?
Dogs thrive with proper social structure, but we understand how difficult it is to find appropriate dogs to socialize with. Dog parks and daycares are often “free-for-all’s” that result in poor social interactions, scary situations and naughty behavior. Through rules, boundaries and structure, paired with extensive knowledge on social cues and pack behavior, we provide a supportive environment for dogs to interact with ease and fun.

A structured pack walk is not just another walk in the park. Pack walking is as much for the dog’s emotional well-being as their physical well-being! The pack is expected to maintain a calm, stable mind frame. If one dog comes out of balance, they quickly adjust back to harmonize with the energy of the pack. Traveling calmly with other dogs is not only a fun activity, but it fulfills instinctual desires.

Who Can Participate
Dogs who have completed obedience training with either Shea-9 Dog Training or Shorthairs & Shotguns are eligible to participate. Each dog must be evaluated and approved prior to their first day in order to ensure a safe, positive experience for all dogs participating.

Many naughty and challenging behaviors our dogs present stem from displaced energy. When we provide our dogs with plenty of mental and physical activity, their energy levels and emotional states are balanced. A calm, balanced dog is a happy dog!

During the Pack and Play Program, the obedience skills that you and your dog have worked so hard on will be maintained. Each day you’ll send your dog’s training tools with him/her so that we can implement recall, leash walking skills, place work, down stays and door manners where necessary. Along with the structured morning activity and play time, your dog is sure to come home tired and fulfilled from a day of hard work and fun!

All training and services are customizable.
