Just as a parent may send a troubled teen to a military boarding school or even to basic training, doggy boot camp has long been a similar option for advanced behavioral training for canines. Doggy boot camp is a specialized training program that combines the best elements of our boarding training, aggression training, behavioral training, and more, to ensure that even the hardest to live with dog receives the attention they need.
Not only will this not help the animal to understand how they are to behave, but it could have lasting physical and psychological effects as well. However, our team has always represented humane and safe training methods, treating your dog like they were our own. When you need advanced training for your animal, you need our dog boot camp training package. This style of training is our most effective training package for more animals, leaving them far more obedient and less distracted than when you dropped them off. In fact, we like to think of this style of training as sort of a summer camp for pets!
Our Two Week Board, and Train program focuses on all aspects of behavioral training and features a bit of all of our training packages combined with an emphasis on leaving your dog distraction proofed. When you sign on for our most effective training package, your dog will receive all of the tools and education that they need for learning to:

- And much more.
The final lesson is for the dog owners themselves. During our final two-hour private one-on-one session, you will learn how to appropriately interact with and control your newly trained dog, as well as what to expect from them when you interact with others, as well as with other dogs.
