What happens during training camp?


Your puppy/dog will receive as many formal training sessions they need over the course of the 21 days 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 behavior modification most of the day. Your puppy/dog will learn to be crated and restricted between each training session.


This training camp will be a life altering event, using positive reinforcement methods. 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. You will also receive a copy of Shari’s book; P.A.W.S. Positive Adaptation Wellness Strategy, a whole life rehabilitation program for dog-reactive-dogs.
