Shady Mountain Pet Retreat, Inc. - Amherst, VA
Shady Mountain Pet Retreat is a luxury boarding and training facility, nestled in the mountains of south-west Virginia. Besides our fabulous mountain views and quiet ambiance, SMPR offers large indoor/outdoor suites (like hotel rooms), 6 large play yards for doggie social experiences, miles of shaded mountain trails, an indoor pool and more. Dogs love SMPR, as evidenced when they know where they're going and get super excited.
We have a variety of training programs to fit every need. You can choose board and train for quick success, private lessons to be in on all the action, or group classes for distraction proofing. Our professional instructors use positive reinforcement training methods, motivating dogs to perform on one cue. We communicate with our guests, bridging the gap between human and animal speech.
SMPR was founded and operated by world-renown author of 45 pet books, Miriam Fields-Babineau. She has trained thousands of animals, exotic and domestic.
