What happens during training camp?

Your puppy/dog will receive (10) 1 hour formal training sessions over the course of the 14 days that your puppy/dog stays with us. The formal training sessions are to introduce your puppy/dog to new commands or to meet any formal training needs your puppy/dog may have. The rest of the time your puppy/dog is with us, we will work on general training throughout the day. Including manners, walking, house manners and general behaviors listed above. We will set your dog up with situations that they may encounter and work them through it.

When we return your dog to you, you will have the first of your 2 home follow-up appointments. You should plan on this first appointment being 2 hours. We will go over the report with you, demonstrate, teach you, and answer all of your questions. The second appointment will be scheduled for 7-10 days later. We are on call 24 hours for all your questions via phone or email.

What do I need to provide for training camp?
