DOG DAYS INN Obedience Bootcamp
(approximately 4 weeks)
This bootcamp boarding and training program is one during which your dog takes part in fun, yet intensive, routine daily training sessions. During this program, training takes place both inside my home, in the yard, in various neighborhood settings and in a myriad of other public places (Home Depot, Petsmart, outdoor patios of restaurants/cafés, parks, playgrounds, etc.). This bootcamp gives your dog the opportunity to experience different settings and environments with the expectation of exhibiting good manners and obedience – this is extremely important from a training aspect.
Canine graduates of DDI’s Obedience Bootcamp are able to demonstrate the following:
- Recall (come when called)
- Walk nicely on a loose leash
- “Go to your bed”
- Good general manners
- And, more
Included in this program are two (2) follow-up lessons wherein I will instruct you on what your dog learned and how you can best follow suit with your dog’s training to ensure lasting results.
DOG DAYS INN Behavior Modification Bootcamp
(approximately 6+ weeks)
In addition to what the Obedience Bootcamp offers, the Behavior Modification Bootcamp focuses on training specifically tailored to combat serious and undesirable behaviors such as:
- Human aggression
- Dog aggression
- Resource guarding
- Fear aggression
- Environmental fears
- Confidence issues
In most cases, I can effectively minimize your dog’s aggression and/or behavioral issues through this carefully-designed training program, tailor-made to address your dog’s specific issues.
A few words about aggression: AGGRESSION IS A VERY SERIOUS MATTER. In many cases, aggression exhibited by a dog WILL NOT decrease in severity without intervention. Usually, aggression will only grow and become increasingly dangerous if it is not mitigated with proper training and management. Said another way: AGGRESSION RARELY GOES AWAY ON ITS OWN. If you notice any sign of aggression exhibited by your dog, call DOG DAYS INN to further discuss your dog’s behavior and how best to combat it.
DOG DAYS INN Mini-Bootcamp
This Mini Bootcamp is best suited for dogs who do not have serious behavioral issues, and who are stable in temperament, but who do not reliably exhibit good manners and/or who do not respond favorably to obedience commands given.
During this Mini-Bootcamp, I will work with your dog on a limited basic obedience foundation. A portion of the proofing (obedience amidst distractions) will be dependent upon your instruction and oversight.
