NOTE: Our stay and train and day camp programs are currently full and are still full if you see this message. Please fill out the registration form below to be added to our waiting list and we’ll reach out once we have openings.

A Pleasant Dog no longer offers regular daycare options. We highly recommend Nature of the Dog for a great local daycare.

We offer 1, 2, and 3 day a week stay and train options for dogs after evaluation by one of our professional trainers. Evaluations are done in the course of a scheduled private session, but if we determine that your dog is not a candidate for our stay and train program, we will not charge you for the evaluation.

Stay and Train options for most dogs are $90 per day. Reactive, Aggressive, and Severe Anxiety clients are $120 per day.

Our Day Camp program is an intensive stay and train program intended to jump start training for your dogs and start your dogs on the path of fluency in resolving problem behaviors. Campers earn merit badges in our program, and review the training upon completion with their owners in an intensive private at the end of camp. Our Day Camp program cost breakdown is as follows:

Non-reactive campers check in for three days a week for three weeks at a cost of $1100.

Reactive campers check in for three days a week for three weeks at a cost of $1500 or four weeks at $1900.

Please call us at (616) 264-2532 to schedule an evaluation for one of our stay and train options.

*The nitty gritty: we reserve the right to charge $25 for cancellations without 24 hour notice or for no-shows. In the event a dog in our care demonstrates a risk to the safety of our trainers or the other dogs in our care, we reserve the right to send him or her home; or to charge an additional $30 per day for training to resolve any behavioral issues.

  • We offer a variety of services for our stay and train clients, please let us know what you need!
    We sometimes take dogs out to Shaggy Pines for a romp, Nature of the Dog for a romp, or other places for socialization and exercise purposes. Please confirm you're okay with this!
