  Canine Manners Camp - Inclusions

  • Improved Manners/Impulse Control: Our comprehensive Canine Manners Camp will teach your dog to practice greatly improved Positive Manners & Impulse Control in the midst of a high arousal situations such as a public park with dogs being walked by on leash!  

    While here in training, we will help your dog learn the value of calm confidence in any situation! He or she will be taught to control their impulses and actually “ask” permission to exit doors, take a treat or even to receive attention. This requires the dog to “think” instead of just reacting impulsively.

    • Impulsive Behavior (defined)"spontaneous reactions done without forethought or consideration of the consequences." 

  • Positive Canine Socialization: Your dog will have unlimited, but controlled, access to our Pack of balanced dogs from which to learn proper and acceptable Canine Social Skills & Communication - all while having great fun at the same time! Nobody can teach a dog about Social Balance better than another balanced dog.

  • Enhanced Obedience Reliability: Sit, Stay and Recall Training ("puppy come") will be practiced and proofed, with distractions, on a daily basis utilizing Positive Reinforcement.  Your dog will now understand and eagerly comply with, your consistent verbal cues.

    • Implied Sit (aka..Sit equals Please): One of the very first things dogs learn here is that the ONLY way he or she can get our attention is to actually Sit in front of one of us. Until the dog actually offers us a Sit, without the verbal command, we do not provide any attention. We practice this with great consistency for an extended period, and the result is ALWAYS a dog that will Sit in front of you for attention...without being told! That's why we say Sit means Please!

  • Loose-Leash Walking: Your dog will be taught to follow the Leader on a completely Loose-Leash with distractions.  What a pleasure it is to walk a dog that doesn't pull. Really, by the time your dog is finished here, regardless of how bad things may currently be on walks at home, he or she will walk beautifully on a totally Loose-Leash with absolutely no tension!  This part is absolutely guaranteed!

  • No Jumping Up: In the eyes of many owners, Jumping Up can often be the most annoying and frustrating undesirable behavior. In our Canine Manners Camp, your dog will be taught to effectively curb this nuisance, and sometimes even dangerous, Impulsive Behavior.
  • 2 Human Training Sessions: In order to ensure that the positive behavioral advancements we create here will last, we will come to your home for 2 Human Training Sessions (up to 5 hours total). 

  • Unlimited Support:  Because we understand how important consistent follow through is, we provide Unlimited Support (phone, text, email, Skype, Facetime or in person) for the life of your dog.  This includes a "refresher" Session, at no charge, any time you need it!

If love and desire were all that was needed to “train” a dog to be well-mannered and comply with all of our requests – then ALL dogs would be obeying their owners at ALL times, and we'd be out of a job! The truth is, that's just not the case.  

In three short weeks, we can reach a level of positive behavioral change that could take an owner months to years of constant “training” attempts to establish...if at all! With our highly successful Canine Manners Camp - we can easily set an owner and dog team up for years of an incredibly rewarding relationship based on balanced behavior and the Leader-Follower Bond.
