A dog grows from puppyhood to adolescents to adulthood in a very short period (1yr to 3yrs). During these different stages, dogs’ behaviors change. Adolescents need to learn behaviors beyond basic obedience (sit, down, come). As the dogs become adolescents, they become more interested in other dogs, people, things then they did during puppyhood. Adolescents need to know how to behave in different social settings and family activities. Kamp K9 delivers training programs customized to fit the dog’s needs no matter the stage of life.
We help families assimilate the dogs into their routine/lifestyles as opposed to the opposite. Nothing is more important to a new pet owner than bringing home a puppy. At Kamp K9, we teach pet owners how to develop a well-mannered, well-behaved dog who comes when called. A Kamp K9 trained dog, knows how to behave in different situations, understands their place in these settings and doesn’t jump on guests.
Kamp K9 created a puppy program to educate families from pre-puppy preparations, to understanding how to handle the first few nights at home with bring home the pup to basic obedience, manners training and loose leash walking.
The puppy program is customized to the puppy needs. It consists of 5 training sessions typically once a week.
Basic and Advanced Obedience:
Basic: sit, down, stay, come, leave it, and loose leash walking.
Advance: proper greetings in home and while walking, longer stays, wait, and mat training and more…
Manners and Situational training:
You have worked on the basics but now what? My dog jumps on people with they visit, or my dog lunges at people/dogs while walking. My dog begs for food while we eat. Does this sound familiar. Manners and Situational training starts where basic obedience training ends. These sessions are customized to simulate your social or family situations. Working with the dog in the simulation environment it allows for many practices.
Board “Stay” and “Train”
During the Stay and train program, your dog stays in a home environment. We individualize the training plan based on the dogs needs, desired behavior improvements, breed and age. We simulate situations happening in a home to teach manners and desired behaviors in a variety of situations.
