Board and Train
During the Board and Train program 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 attending this program may be with us for as short as a few weeks or they may be with us for several weeks until complete. Each dog is an individual with his/her own needs and learning styles because we understand this, K9 Boot Camp charges for program type and not for the length of time.
Introduction/ Trust Building Phase
During the first few days to a week we are getting to know your dog, his/her personality and best way they learn. There isn’t a lot to report to owners during this period of the program. Up dates and before and after videos are usually emailed in after the first 3/4 weeks but this can vary.
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 attending for fears, phobias or aggression, tend to take longer than regular obedience cases.
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 properly handle their every day world.
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 will be required to stay a minimum of 4 weeks and may take longer.
