We have "revamped" our Bootcamp! It is the same concept, but different. We have decided that Bootcamp is to balance the dog that is too excitable or nervous. Our goal in this week long training is to bring the dogs to a calm state of mind and teach the owner how to do the same. We will work on the dogs energy or nervousness level in the pack, we will train them in public settings, they will be worked in the pack for distractions and as always taught basic obedience.
Before we sign your pup up for Bootcamp, we want to meet you and your dog for an evaluation. We can do this in a few way....
Evaluation at Dog World- no charge
Evaluation at your home (in Columbus)- $50
Evaluation at your home (out of town)- $75
Once we have evaluated your dog, we can determine if they need Bootcamp or one of the other training options we offer.
What we work on in Bootcamp:
5 day training including overnight stay: $490
Next AVAILABLE Bootcamp starts: 7/24/2021-7/29/2021
What do YOU, the owner, have to do.....
This training is very owner focused. We focus on the dogs, however we need your participation as well. The drop off date is a Saturday morning (at 10am) and you must plan to participate in an hour long training exercise with a trainer when you drop your dog off. We want to work with you before and after the Bootcamp to guide you and answer any questions you may have. The second training exercise occurs when you pick up your dog. This will be a 5:30pm-6:30pm class. This class is for you to work with the trainers who have been working with your dogs, answer any additional questions, and for us to be able to see you "in action' with your dog.
ALL DOGS THAT PARTICIPATE IN BOOTCAMP MUST ABIDE BY THE REQUIREMENTS FOR DAYCARE/BOARDING: 6 MONTHS OR OLDER, SPAYED OR NEUTERED, PROOF OF RABIES, DISTEMPER, CANINE FLU, BORDATELLA (IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS AND THE RESULTS OF THE OVA AND PARASITE PLUS GIARDIA ELISA 24 HOUR LAB TEST ON A STOOL SAMPLE (IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS).
This session is tailored to your specific problems with your dog and focuses on how to modify unwanted behavior. This can be done at Dog World or at your home. Humans are taught "how" to train their dog. The session is meant to only be a beginning of a learning relationship that develops high levels of trust.
