The Academy of Canine Behavior is proud to now offer Obedience Camp. This is a new and exciting program that is designed for dogs that do not need any major behavioral modifications, but simply need education for their dogs and the owners on basic obedience commands.
When you check in for Obedience Camp on Monday morning, you will have a short orientation regarding the program. The dogs will stay with us for 5 days and will be picked up on Friday evening in a group class setting with other owners from the Obedience Camp program. At that time we will be working with you on basic handling skills to get results in obedience. Over the weekend we give specific instructions for success. We then will have the dogs come back in on Monday to complete the second week of the program with, once again, a Friday night group class. At the completion of the 2 weeks, owners will have the option to continue training with us one week at a time up to 2 additional weeks.
The success of the Obedience Program is reliant on owner involvement once the dog is at home to continue the education. We believe that it’s not training that changes dogs behavior, but the use of training commands through repetition when your dog offers behaviors deemed unacceptable.
**For the Obedience Camp Program we do not accept dogs that have aggression issues, separation anxiety or special instructions for success.
