WE WILL PROVIDE TRAINING SKILLS
which You will be able to apply in daily interactions with Your pet
Dog training often poses one or two challenges for the owners. Sometimes it is difficult to find a way to motivate dogs, sometimes - to get the desired obedience or simply You are not satisfied with the way the dog behaves at home and in public places. You can't expect a dog to learn commands on its own if You don't teach it.
Dog training starts from the second the puppy crosses the threshold of your home. So the best time to start learning is now! Remember one thing - dogs always do what works. Therefore, if you do not show them what behavior is appropriate, the dogs will choose how to behave. And You, as the owner, will not necessarily like it.
DOG TRAINING PRICES
Dogs learn well based on the associations they know, so we can use this to create "pictures" in the dog's memory that suit us. Learning from experience is one of the most important things in a dog's development process.
LKD coach Aura Jankūnaitė
Dog training consists of very clear rules, motivation, rewards and mutual efforts. Every command or norm of behavior takes time to develop, regardless of the age of the dog You are raising. Often, professional help is needed to ensure a smooth process. However, this does not mean that You will not have to work on Your own - on the contrary, You will receive clear instructions on how to do the exercises at home and what result You will have to achieve.
Dog training doesn't have to be a chore - it has to be a routine. Only then can you expect the results to be what You are aiming for. In addition, until you develop a bond with Your pet, he will not be inclined to listen to You or will only listen when it is convenient for him.
We are very happy to have found you! Our puppies attend daycare with training. Consistent work with a trainer gives tangible results. We can see the progress of our puppies and we are very happy about it.
What to do to make the dog feel happy at the hotel?1. To make the dog feel happy in the new environment, that environment needs to be familiar. It is for this reason that we strongly recommend that You try the day care center before Your first stay. This makes the dog have a positive association and it is easier for him to stay overnight. 2. We recommend that You follow the same regime at home that the hotel follows, at least three to four days before Your stay. 3. We recommend that You don’t feed Your dog before bringing him to the hotel. In that way, we can use the full daily food rate during the training and the dog is more motivated to contact the staff. 4. If your dog finds it difficult to adapt in a new environment, then we ask the owners to spend extra time and be with their pet near the hotel or in the hotel until the pet calms down. 5. Avoid long farewells and most importantly, do not get nervous because our pets feel our emotions.
When can I bring a pet? What are the times of check in and check out?Because we accept only a small amount of pets, we recommend that you book the stay as early as possible - at least a few weeks before your trip. Our dog hotel offers comfortable arrival and departure times. You can bring your pet from 9 a.m. in the morning, and pick up until 6 p.m.
What is the cost and conditions of the hotel?Both small and large dogs are accepted by the hotel: we have separate spaces for small and large breeds. The cost of care of small breeds (up to 10 kg) is 33 euros per day (in summer and holidays - 44 euros). Care of large breed dogs (over 10 kg) costs 35 Eur per day at the hotel (summer and holidays - 50 Eur). All pets live in personal cozy rooms, which ensures maximum safety. If you want a few of Your dogs to stay in one room, the hotel will apply special discounts. In addition, discounts apply to a period of more than 10 days as well.
What additional services do you provide?The dog hotel in Vilnius offers several different services for your convenience: SPA services are very popular and we suggest you order it at the same time as the hotel. Your pet will be bathed, dried, "deshedded" before going home. Those who want to use their pets' time effectively choose training lessons. Your dog may not only have a vacation but also learn something new. It is never too late to learn good manners. The day care center is chosen by those who want to responsibly introduce their dog to the new environment. If your dog hasn't visited us in a long time or it will be his first time, then we suggest that you first visit the daycare center to get used to Barkvili's daily routine and feel more comfortable.
What do you need to bring on arrival?When arriving at the hotel, you should take care of your regular pet food and you can also bring treats (especially treats that your dog can chew for a while). A passport of mandatory valid vaccinations and a microchip is also necessary. In addition, when arriving at the hotel, it is recommended to have an additional kennel cough vaccination, which will provide protection against this disease. Often, a dog or cat feels better if they are left with a thing that smells of home and his owners, so you can also take your pets bed, blanket or his favorite toy.
Do I need to bring my pets food?For many pets, staying at a hotel is a new challenge, so it is recommended that the animal experiences as few changes as possible during this period, especially with nutrition. Our hotel tries to make the feeding experience exactly how it is at home: we feed the same food and try to adapt to the schedule you create at home. That is why when you arrive at the hotel, you should bring the full amount of food that your dog should eat while at the hotel. In addition, we use treats for many activities, so it is necessary to inform the hotel staff about potential pet allergies. Of course, this does not mean that an allergic pet does not participate in activities: in that case we use his own food. The dog hotel has every opportunity to adapt to different nutritional methods. So it doesn't matter if your pet eats dry food, RAW or BARF - everyone is welcome at the hotel.
Do you accept female dogs that are in heat?We are sorry, but we do not have the opportunity to accept female dogs that are in heat. Although our rooms are safe, the behavior of other dogs changes if there is a female dog in heat in the same environment.
Do you accept aggressive dogs?If your pet is aggressive towards other dogs, we will ensure that no contact occurs and we will avoid any situations that can provoke aggression. However, if your pet has been aggressive towards a person, be sure to inform the hotel staff about it - the hotel reserves the opportunity to not accept aggressive pets if they are in danger. However, if your dog attacks out of fear we suggest you first come to a consultation with your pet, get to know the staff and then talk about the options.
