The board-and-train style dog training programs have an extremely high success rate in a short period of time. In short, your dog stays with us and returns home a changed dog.
This board-and-train boot camp option is ideal for anyone looking for a more highly trained dog or to more quickly address behaviour issues. It is also an ideal fit for anyone going on vacation, busy with work, moving to a new home or needing some time to relax.
You get the most for your money with this program. The board-and-train "boot camp" program includes all of the training as well as human and dog socialization sessions, exercise and continuous work with basic manners at our training centre and daycare facility. The program is fully customizable and may cover any topic including standard obedience, specific goals or behavioural rehabilitation.
As with all of our programs, we are your support system moving forward and include ongoing maintenance to ensure your success. Our goal is to allow you to relax while we expedite the learning curve so that you can jump right into re-establishing a great relationship at home.
The typical program is 3-4 weeks (you may do as short or long as you like) and is tailored specifically to your goals and the needs of the dog. The costs for the program include all training as well as all boarding costs, daycare and socialization, exercise, behaviour modification, etc.
The programs begin with a comprehensive intake interview and dog profile where we work with you to create a training strategy. The training methods and behaviour modification techniques are tailored specifically to your comfort level and to the goals of each dog; for example, high drive dogs are trained through play and drive to give you increased control and low confidence dogs are trained using confidence building exercises.
Although customizable, most programs have the benifit of including many of the obedience topics from our Fundamentals Obedience program in addition to the training efforts selected based on your goals. Each program is a little different but the end goal is typically the same - the return of a rehabilitated or trained dog. We focus on ensuring that every part of their life is governed by dog behaviour best practices and we send all dogs home with documentation and support to ensure ongoing success..
