Can I send my puppy away to be house trained? Most people attend puppy school or dog training classes on a weekly visit basis. But it is possible to send your puppy or older dog away for residential training with a professional trainer. Whether that is a good idea or not will depend on your circumstances and what you want to get out of the experience.
Will my dog miss me at training? Answer: “Absolutely Not.” The great thing about dogs is that they think in the present time. They don’t fret over the past nor plan out their future. Sure, they can remember past experiences when something triggers that thought (just as when being reunited with their owners) but they think in the moment of time.
