After over a decade of dog training, Doggy Boot Camp is still by far my most requested service. Clients range from owners who may feel helpless and out of options to the standard American family that is simply too busy to train its dog. While Beyond The Leash does specialize in aggressive and/or dominant dogs, dogs of any nature and training background seem to benefit from Doggy Boot Camp.
I think the success of the program is largely based in the fact that the dogs are removed from the environment where they lost some of their control for a minimum of two weeks. During the time the dogs are with the trainers, they are only rehearsing the correct way of doing things (i.e., waiting at the door to be released, being quiet and clean in the crate, coming when called each and every time, etc.). This type of structure allows for a great deal of clarity for the dog and is the first step to rebuilding the history of bad behavior that was displayed in the owner’s home.
The dogs that are enrolled in this board and train program live in my home. We do not have a kennel type of set up, so the problem behaviors the owners are dealing with day in and day out at home, we are able to see first hand. Addressing the dog’s issues early on and providing the dogs with alternate behaviors is our recipe for success. If you would like to set up a consult at your home to see if your dog would be an eligible candidate for Boot Camp, click here. Make 2014 your dog’s best year yet!
