Board and Train
In Boot Camp, your dog will be teamed up to a trainer for his/her entire program duration. This allows your dogs to get one on one attention at all times and provides significant amount of training time. Every dog that comes to the Board and Train program, gets a personalized training program created just for them. Dogs that are registered for the Boot Camp program for aggression, fear, or anxiety may require up to a month’s stay or longer depending on the case.
The Board And Train Program
Once your dog is teamed up with his/her trainer, we start our 4 phase training process with them.
Introduction/ Trust Building Phase (1-2 Days)
Before we begin intensive training with your dog, we always take a moment for your dog to become comfortable with us. It is important that we build a relationship with your dog.
Teaching phase (7 days-2 weeks)
This is the longest of the phases and the most important. We first test your dogs skill level in various areas and then work on anything that requires additional attention.
Dogs that are admitted for aggression or fear issues, will go through a rehabilitation process. This is a program that was created to boost confidence and train the dog to socialize properly around other dogs. K9 Boot camp uses their own dogs that are highly trained and obtain a very well-balanced energy that helps to rehabilitate problem dogs and re-set their old habits.*
Enforcement Phase (2 weeks-4 weeks)
Once your dog has learned the exercises we begin enforcing the commands with different trainers at the facility to ensure reliability for you.
Please understand that the Board and Train Program is tailored to every dog’s individual needs. Dogs staying for obedience training will get quite a different program than a dog coming to stay for any type of aggression issues. Any dog coming to stay for behavioral training and rehab will be required to stay a minimum of 4 weeks and/or up to 6 weeks.
