BOOT CAMP

Boot Camp is a service provided to clients on a case-by-case basis that is depending on the trainer and behaviorist availability. After the behavior consultation, a trainer will be assigned to develop a Boot Camp Training Plan to address the dog's behavior and obedience requirements. Due to this specialized service, there is only ONE DOG PER WEEK in Boot Camp.

The behaviorist will provide the training, the consultation notes, and outline the goals for the week. 

The trainer will develop a week long (and behavior if required) plan to cover the week long stay, which is Monday through Saturday. This will encompass all training activities with a specific outlined schedule for the week with milestones identified. Progress notes are required in our system and will be emailed to our client daily. A mid-week progress check with the behaviorist is required to address any issues with the training.
