Boot Camp

 

Our Boot Camp training program is the most in depth, effective training program that we offer at Wasatch Canine Camp.  The Boot Camp program is specifically designed for dogs that need intense rehabilitation (aggression, nervousness, etc).  Our Boot Camp program is $3,995 and is a results based program.  Your dog may stay here 6 weeks, or they may stay here for several months.  The length of time is dependent on the severity of their behavior issues, and how quickly they are adapting to the training.  Every dog is different and works at different paces, we don’t like to push them or rush the training, we want to get the job done right!  So you will only pay a flat rate fee and your dog will then stay here until their training is complete, no matter how long it takes!  The price also includes your very own remote dog training collar, as well as any other training tools that we feel work best with your dog, and we also include our lifetime support guarantee.

During the boot camp program, your dog will stay with us at our training center where we will be training, teaching, and helping them socialize properly and safely every day.  While your dog is here they will be on a very safe, structured, fun training schedule, and will be rotated between various activities during the day to keep them focused, tired, and happy.  We work hard to make your dog’s stay feel just like home, you’re more than welcome to bring your dog’s favorite toys, blankets, beds, etc when you drop them off! You’ll also need to bring enough food to last the entirety of their stay with us.

When working with a dog, we always look at the dog as a whole, rather than just focusing on one specific issue (barking, potty training, etc).  We combine the use of food, proper motivation, and positive reinforcement with proper structure, leadership, proper nutrition,and the right training tools that work best for your dog to create an all around healthy, structured, happy life for all of the dogs (and their owners) that we work with.

  • We will work on any major behavior problems you may be having with your dog (aggression, anxiety, fear, obsessions, over excitability etc).

  • We will teach your dog how to be off-leash reliable, by your side, even when there are distractions around.

  • We will use your dog’s food in combination with positive reinforcement, as well as any other training tools that work best for your dog, to create a fun, healthy level of focus and motivation.

    Brewser came to us on muzzle with intense human aggression, and was occasionally reactive with other dogs. After his 6 weeks, he was much more comfortable with humans, and had no issues with other dogs. With proper structure and balance, he became a big sweet guy.

  • We will teach you how to correctly use the e-collar so that you are 100% confident that you can work with your dog when we aren’t there.

  • We will take the time to teach your dog to respond to the lowest level possible on the e-collar.

  • We will take the time to teach your dog exactly what we want them to do when they feel stimulation from the e-collar.

  • We will teach your dog a “place” command (which is similar to the “stay” command).

  • We will use our pack of balanced dogs to help your dog remember how to be a dog again.

  • We will talk about the importance of crate training and how it can be extremely beneficial to creating a calmer, happier dog.

  • We will keep you updated on your dogs progress with videos, pictures, and descriptions through our facebook page.

  • We will teach you the importance of proper nutrition for your dog, and how proper nutrition is necessary for your dog to be healthy both mentally and physically.

  • We will give you a structured, fun, reasonable training schedule for your dog to follow after they return home, to help them bring everything they learned with us home.

  • We will teach you about dog psychology and pack mentality to help you understand how to communicate with your dog better, and how to read their body language better.

  • We will master the walk with your dog, teaching them to walk by your side with a loose leash (it’s important that your dog knows how to walk with a loose leash, even if they are off leash reliable).

  • Master sit, down, and stay (with distance and both human, dog, or food distractions).

  • We will teach you many different ways to correct your dog properly, when necessary.

  • We can teach your dog to walk on the treadmill (if you have one).

While your dog is here, they will take part daily in different socialization exercises, such as group socialization/daycare sessions, pack walks, focus work, obedience training, off leash training, distraction training, treadmill training, Pack to Basics ™ and more!  The Boot Camp Program is accommodated to what you need your dog to improve on and learn.  Every dog will experience a different boot camp than the dog before them.  We are very flexible with what we can teach your canine friend, so please let us know exactly what you would like your dog to improve on or learn!

We work with serious behavior issues frequently, including both human and dog aggressive dogs.  These videos below are of Riley, a Pit Bull mix that was here for the boot camp program from Georgia.  Riley has bitten several people in the past and her owners had been told by several trainers and vets to euthanize her.  Riley’s owners knew she was a sweet dog and didn’t deserve to be put down, so they called Bethany and came here all the way from Georgia to work with Bethany. Bethany was able to help Riley become much more manageable and trustworthy.  Although, because of her bit history she will always have to wear a muzzle, she has never tried to bite anyone since she has been back home.  She is such a sweet girl and was very fun to work with! This should give you a general idea of what to expect with the Boot Camp program.

During the 6 weeks you are encouraged to text or call Wasatch Canine Camp, LLC to check up on your dog. After the 6 weeks are up, we will meet with you for about 2 to 3 hours at our training center and teach you how to continue training successfully on your own when you go home.

Training with us is not just a one and done kind of deal, we’re here for you whenever you need us!

When your dog comes to stay with us for Boarding or a Board and Train program:

  • Bring enough food for the entirety of their stay with us. Please make sure that the food is either in the original bag, or in some kind of sealed container/ziplock bag, and that their food is labeled with their name and the amount of food that they typically eat each day. If you feed a raw diet, please make sure that it is in sealed zip locks or bags that do not leak.

  • Make sure your dog has a collar on during their stay, and please bring them in to us on a clip leash or slip leash, no retractable leashes (unless you absolutely don’t have anything else).

  • Bring their most up to date vaccination records.

  • Make sure your dog has proper tags on their collar (name, contact information, etc)

  • If your dog is on any kind of supplements or medications, please bring them and provide written instructions giving amounts required and frequency that they need to be given. If your dog is not okay with taking their medication orally or if it is placed in their food, please provide something to assist in giving it to them (peanut butter, Pill Pockets, lunch meat, etc).

  • If you have any toys or bones that your dog enjoys, you’re more than welcome to bring them for your dog.

  • We can provide bedding for your dog, we prefer that you do not bring bedding with you. Typically if accidents happen, bedding sometimes can become misplaced in the laundry, we don’t want this to happen. We provide blankets/towels for smaller dogs/puppies (as long as they do not destroy them), and raised cots for medium to larger size dogs that stay with us.
