Board and Train Puppy

Board and Train Puppy Camp Programs

Board and Training puppy from 8-16 weeks of age.

Through our potty camp program we take the difficulty out of the beginning stages of training and reduce household stress, which will allow you and your family to just enjoy your puppy.

This is a very important stage in your puppy’s development, so training at this age should be fun and memorable. We strongly believe that harsh and forceful methods should never be used, so we incorporate play, petting, and cookies. 

See our videos of some amazing puppies. Our potty camp puppy training far exceeds kennel training because your puppy lives with the trainer and is never left alone at night. 

Your puppy’s day is a balance between work, play, and rest.

        • Your Puppy will learn
        • The basic commands
        • Place command
        • Leash walking
        • crate training
        • potty/house training.

Manners: We work on jumping, nipping, and biting, sitting politely for putting the leash on and off, and sitting/staying at feeding. In addition, your puppy is socialized with appropriate dogs to help it learn the skills needed to interact with other dogs.

At the end of your puppy’s potty camp training, we spend 90 minutes reviewing all the components your puppy has learned and we will teach you how to maintain them. 

Starting your puppy off right has life long lasting effects

See our videos below of some amazing dog training, that is fun and motivational. Dogs love it!!

Training an older dog is totally possible, and in some cases might even be easier than training a puppy. Dogs are lifelong learners, and generally speaking they love to please their owners and receive attention. You can leverage these characteristics to train any dog, no matter their age or training background.
