“We believe when dog parents become educated, they will stand up and demand change for the way we care for dogs. Building an educated, informed, compassionate, life-enhancing tribe of dog parents is our passion.” – Doglando

    Puppies 8-12 weeks old begin with our Potty Training and Puppy Development program, then progress into Puppy Preschool (13-20 weeks) and finally enroll in our Pre-K9 training and then continue into Enrichment.

    Adult Dogs start with dog training or may enter our Enrichment program after a successful Behavior Analysis. Specialty Training classes and Skill Building help your dog master real-world skills.

    Senior Dogs (over 8 years) enjoy our nature-rich campus at our Senior Stroll events.

    What Doglando members are saying

    Dogs need leadership as much as love.

    “Before working with Doglando, I owned boxers that were pretty much bananas. I thought that’s just the way dog ownership was; destructive behaviors, separation anxiety, and chasing them around the neighborhood when they got loose. I was exposed to Doglando while in between dogs, and once we decided to get a puppy I knew that she needed to be a Doglando dog. I didn’t struggle at all with Ella, and followed Doglando’s teachings fairly stringently, and now she’s one of the teaching dogs.”

    My pups are living their best lives at Doglando

    “Doglando has been a second family to my chipoos, Boots & Bella! They started in their puppy program – Doglando was instrumental in housebreaking them too! I know my pups are loved at Doglando! They are living their best life going there! Enjoying nature, the outdoors, while at the same time getting valuable training skills!  Thank you University of Doglando for providing my Boots and Bella an experience like no other!!”

    – Zahra

    Doglando has been heaven sent!

    “Abby has improved leaps and bounds since starting at Doglando. She is a joy to have in our lives, and Doglando has helped make our time with her even more enjoyable. She LOVES spending time there and immediately gets excited the minute that we turn into the road to the gate. She loves all the areas where she can play in the water, and is always very excited to be able to play with other doggie friends.”

    – Nery T.

    A Sense of Calm

    I feel there is a sense of calm amidst the strange, but necessary event that we are all faced with. A sense of peacefulness, stillness, and silence surrounds us all, if we just stop to breathe. It’s like humankind is experiencing a re-birth, and we’re in the few short...

    An Opportunity to Practice Our Core Values

    During this sensitive and fluid time, we find ourselves being challenged most by our company’s core values. As an Enrichment Center, we are steadfast in providing optimal conditions to enrich the emotional, mental, physical, nutritional, intuitive, and behavioral...

    Learning from Street Dogs

    Last week, I spent 7 days in Guatemala with two of our students from the Canine Enrichment Academy (CEA). I’ve been documenting street dogs, free-roaming dogs, and village dogs in developing countries for two decades now, and the idea of hosting a Street Dog Retreat...

    Dogs Need Connection, Not Socialization

    For years, I’ve found myself in conflict with our claim that dogs need socialization. I know you’ve been told your dog needs socialization. You’ve read this all over the internet and it’s in every “how to train a dog“ book. But, what if we re-framed the “need” to say,...

    Living Harmoniously with Restriction

    “It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” - Mahatma Gandhi During lunch, I was speaking with Brandee and our team about the different spheres of Canine Enrichment. Brandee is particularly keen and interested in exploring “food...

    “We are creating memories for the most remarkable association between humans and dogs in captivity, by allowing dogs to be free. This enables companion dogs to live a natural dog’s life and still remain on affectionate terms with humans and our society at large.

    We believe, beneath every behavior there is a feeling. Beneath every feeling is a need. And when we meet the needs, unique to each individual, we are better able to understand just how poorly they’re living. Then, it becomes a matter of dealing with the cause, and not the symptom. As a result, we’re able to heal deeply.“
