If you need some professional help training your dog, you can enroll in Doggie Boot Camp. Dogs enrolled in our Boot Camp program stay with us at our training center night and day. Their days are filled with training sessions either at The Animals' House or at local parks, trails and shopping centers. The dogs will also have the opportunity to socialize with other dogs during their stay. Our program includes a personalized training report, a one hour private consultation upon pick up, and a seven week obedience course to follow.

Two Week Camp

One Week Camp

Weekend Camp

When a dog is boarding at The Animals' House any time between Friday morning and Sunday evening, clients may request training. This program will include 2 one-hour training sessions with a certified trainer and a go-home lesson with the owner. Topics that may be addressed during the weekend program are: basic manners (such as not jumping or mouthing, or pulling on the leash), and learning two new behaviors such as come, sit, stay, down, name recognition, leave it or drop it. Additionally, the trainer will work on compliance issues. This is useful for dogs that understand behaviors (such as sit) but won't always perform when distractions are present.

**Weekend Bootcamps are designed to help dogs get better with their obedience that have already gone through our 1 week or 2 week Bootcamp program. **

A wide range of topics can be addressed during the training. Some examples are: not jumping, mouthing, excessively barking, or pulling on the leash. Owners may choose three new behaviors for the trainers to teach the dogs, such as come, sit, down, stay, name recognition, leave it or drop it. Topics that may be addressed during the week program are jumping, mouthing, heeling and excessive barking. All behaviors will be practiced around distractions to ensure compliance. Items such as dog-dog leash aggression may also be covered during the weekly training program.

Our full two week camp is designed for puppies or dogs that have more severe, or complicated behavioral issues, such as aggression, lack of socialization, or potty training issues. Owners may choose five new behaviors for the trainers to teach the dogs, such as come, sit, down, stay, name recognition, leave it or drop it, in addition to all behavioral issues addressed. All behaviors will be practiced around distractions to ensure compliance.
