No matter the breed, age or history, All dogs can be good dogs and we love to prove it!
The secret of dog boot camp success: In an independent survey, it was identified that 87% of our clients report that they have "experienced lasting success in eliminating the behaviors that drove them to seek a boot camp for their puppy or adult dog in the first place". The average for our Twin Cities competitors, 21%.
So what's our secret? We'll tell ya! (Competitors, you can keep reading too, the more dogs we can all help the better!)
Dogs are relationship based, just like us. They are not "social robots". How they behave is dictated not by what they know or how good they can be, but what makes sense given the relationship they have with the people and other dogs in their lives. We treat our boss different from our kids, different from friendly strangers, different from strangers that seem unstable, different from those we respect etc...So do dogs!
Lets face it, your dog loves you, but they are not getting the message that they should look to you for what to do and how to feel about certain people or activities.
Throughout our boot camps, your dog will live with a real dog behavior trainer, no shock collars, no kennels, no weird techniques. Your dog will go where their dogs go, the dog park, our group training classes, their friends' houses, family member's houses etc. When issues arise, they will be addressed in a way that the dog can use to improve their behavior in those situations.
The answer is in the follow through! To improve the behavior of our dog at home, we return your well behaved canine buddy and get the whole family practicing the relationship skills that will make your perfect canine last a lifetime! We will continue to do private in-home sessions after boot camp until you learn how to create the perfect relationship with your dog.
Did we mention we charge 1/3 of what a typical boot camp costs?
