Do you have a busy schedule? Is your puppy or new dog home alone most of the day? Are you struggling to train a new dog or pup? Then, we have a simple solution: send your dog to boot camp!
In just 14 days, your dog will learn the gamut of obedience skills, including necessary “people skills” to live in harmony with their new pack. When the two weeks are up, we include four “human training classes,” where we teach you to work with your dog learning their new commands, gestures, and skills.
Dogs need calm, consistent repetition to learn the obedience skills necessary to live well with their new family. This includes the same basic commands we teach in such as:
Down (no jumping on people, furniture, etc.)
First-class puppy training also requires potty training, walking without pulling a leash, and meeting new people and other dogs without aggression. We also teach other obedience skills designed to honor your household’s rules and boundaries. Examples include staying out of the kitchen or other off-limits areas in the home, not jumping on or laying on furniture, ringing a bell to be let outside, commands to get in/out of the car, and more.
In addition to teaching dogs what they need to learn, we also get rid of the annoying habits that make everyone’s life miserable. This means:
To achieve this level of obedience, canines need to encounter the same commands repeatedly, receiving positive reinforcement whenever they do things correctly. Boot camp accomplishes all of the above in just two short weeks (14 days).
What’s the secret ingredient? The constant and solid presence of an experienced dog trainer and handler, 24/7. At Alternative Canine Training boot camps, dogs are integrated into the home - with humans and other dogs - just as they would be at home or in a “natural pack” setting. We board and train multiple dogs at a time, but all are a part of our home (there’s no such thing as being stuck in kennels here!).
With this level of consistency, day and night, your dog gets the ultimate dog boot camp experience.
