Boot Camp (Board and Train) Programs
Your dog will come to our private training facility in Ellenton, Florida to participate in one or more weeks of immersive obedience, manners and, if needed, a behavior modification program. As soon as your dog arrives, we immediately begin to establish a relationship with your dog that is filled with structure, manners, obedience work, socialization, e-collar training and exercise. Camps range from basic obedience and manners training to addressing behavioral problems requiring behavior modification, such as resource guarding, aggressive tendencies, fear and anxiety and dog reactivity. While your dog is with us at Camp, owners participate in training sessions to learn your dog's new skills and be fully prepared to transition those skills into everyday life when the dog returns home. Client study materials, an in-home troubleshooting session post-Boot Camp, and Lifetime Maintenance for the dog are included.
There are two (2) Boot Camp programs to choose from:
- Basic Boot Camp consists of a combination of a mini Boot Camp and private, one-on-one sessions following Boot Camp. Your dog will stay with us for a week of intensive obedience and manners training then return home to continue to strengthen their skills through weekly, one-on-one sessions, for three (3) weeks. The cost of Basic Boot Camp is $1200.
- Advanced Boot Camp is designed for those dogs that in addition to basic obedience and manners training, also need more advanced, fully immersive behavioral modification training to correct more serious issues such as leash reactivity, aggressive tendencies, resource guarding, etc. Advanced Boot Camp ranges from 3 to 6 weeks in duration and includes an E-Collar Technologies training collar and e-collar training for off-leash obedience and control. Advanced Boot Camp begins at $2200.
