Why Puppy Boot Camp?
Training young dogs is imperative to their long-term success. Before your puppy can be a well-balanced, well mannered adult you must build a solid foundation of confidence, focus and obedience. Our 2-Week Puppy Boot Camp provides all necessary elements to get your pup started on the right track.
Obedience is every dog owner’s main concern. Your puppy must first learn HOW to learn. Each puppy will learn to focus with their trainer and build the habit of looking to a human for leadership and guidance.
Exposure and Socialization with new people, places, sounds, smells, and dogs of all sizes and personality is also a key to success. If you would like your dog to remain obedient in a social setting with other dogs and strangers present, they must be desensitized to these scenarios. In addition, the ability to meet and play with other dogs in a polite manner starts in adolescence.
Crate training is the most important training you can do for your dog as a puppy. It aids in the success of potty training, helps to avoid the development of separation anxiety, and builds independence in teaching a calm state of mind while alone.
