Pooches live life together with us. They are exposed to a life with errands, kids, family of all ages, animals, distractions, schedules, friends, noises, smells, etc. Pooches become part of our extended family. With our social calendar, our pooches are exposed to a multitude of experiences that teach them how to cope with reality in a calm state of mind. We ‘party proof’ our pooches!
Naturally, all the basics of walking nicely on a loose-lead and basic obedience (“sit/wait”, “come”, “down”, “off”, “back” , “no” , “paws up” and working around distraction) are covered. Other essential areas covered in our program are potty training, kennel/crate training, chewing, jumping, barking, digging, and socialization with children. As your pooch is ready, additional items like treadmill, driving in cars, grooming—and doing it all in a calm, polite way are introduced. And through it all, your pooch learns impulse control and adrenaline management—a trait most parents wish their teenagers had more of, HA!
I create an extensive “Daily Journal” that details your daily routine, training tips/insights, training challenges, and training successes. Your homework each day is to read your Daily Journal and to learn as your pup learns too. I also post pictures and videos on Facebook and YouTube so you can learn right along with your pooch!!
Our boot camp culminates in an amazing “GRADUATION” where owners are required to come spend a few hours with me, my pack and your pooch where we create your entire schedule before you leave for your home. We will take as much time as needed for you to flex your Pillars of Pack Leadership® muscles! We can even video parts of your Graduation so you have a visual future reference for yourself.
