Intermediate-Remote offers the next level to your dog training by introducing the fundamentals of leash pressure and the e-collar. Do not mistake the e-collar for a shock collar. Shock collars were used many, many years ago when training wasn’t evolved. Modernized e-collars are far more gentle and contain very low level stem and are NOT the ones you find in pet stores. K9 Boot Camp offers e-collar training to anyone who has had a foundation in basic training and understands the importance of strong basic training before implementing the e-collar. Intermediate-Remote is open to anyone who has completed Obedience 1, Puppy Kindergarten, or Good Manners Class. If you are looking to further your dog’s training by getting off leash reliability and perfect heeling around distractions (even without a leash) you will need to be trained on e-collar usage. Intermediate-Remote covers commands such as Place, Stay, Long distance Recall, Shaping the Heel, and much more! Intermediate-Remote is required before taking Advanced-Remote which is our Off Leash Training Class.
Advanced-Remote offers Obedience at a distance, Reliability around distractions, Recall OFF Distractions, Heeling Off Leash, etc. This Class is run indoors and primarily all dogs are off leash. E-collar training is mastered at this level and dogs and owners are fluent with it’s usage.
E-Collar Out Doors is offered to anyone who has completed our Intermediate-Remote or both, Intermediate-Remote and Advanced-Remote. Once your dog is responding reliably in our indoor classes, we want to take it outside and proof them around distractions in every day real life. This Class is run more like having a private session with the trainer which is why the groups are kept small. You will learn to call your dog off a squirrel or bird, Sit, Down, Heel, and Stay and how to proof these commands out doors and around distractions. Dog owners will be using E collar training techniques taught in our Intermediate and Advanced Remote classes.
Reactive Fido (coming soon) (6 week class) K9 Boot Camp does a Reactive Fido different than any one else. While other competitors run a reactive class by having ALL reactive dogs in a class (wouldn’t this just make the dog more stressed/reactive?) K9 Boot Camp offers this class to ONE reactive dog and ALL of the other dogs are TRAINED dogs. this allows the reactive dog to feel more comfortable, the environment isn’t as noisy and stressful causing your dog to be worse, but rather is full of well balanced energy and calm dogs that are passive to your dogs reactive behavior. this allows him/her to be trained first BEFORE making them put up with other reactivity. This just makes more sense! K9 Boot Camp does this by bringing their own trained dogs or other certified trained dogs to sit in on each class and rotates each dog so that you’re dog doesn’t only get used to the same dogs in class and then goes and reacts differently to strange dogs on the street. This course is set up to allow your dog the most success!
Dog Nose Work (coming soon)
Did you lose your keys or your remote again? What if your dog could help you find them? Harnessing the power of a dog’s nose can help calm an over excited dog by giving them a job. Mental exertion like this requires more energy from your dog than a 5-mile walk, and will give them a challenge unlike any other. This Class is also recommended to aid in separation anxiety cases and is used in the K9 Boot Camp’s Board and Train program for rehabilitation.
