Puppy Starter Camp

 

Our Puppy Starter Camp is specifically designed for families that are struggling with a new puppy.  This program is not as intense as the rest of our board and train programs, but is a great training program to help start puppies off on the right foot. This program has 3 levels of training.  The higher levels (2 and 3) do not go over any new training, they just allow us to spend more time with your puppy to help them improve with the things that we are teaching them.

  1. Level 1 – Your puppy stays with us for 2 weeks for $1500 $1,425

  2. Level 2 – Your puppy stays with us for 3 weeks for $1850 $1,758

  3. Level 3 – Your puppy stays with us for 4 weeks for $2200 $2,090

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 work hard to make your puppy’s stay feel just like home, you’re more than welcome to bring their 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.

While your new puppy is here they stay at our training center with us, and we will go over:

 

  • We will teach your puppy proper house manners and social manners.

  • We will teach your puppy bite inhibition.

  • We will work on potty training with your puppy.

  • 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.

  • We will teach your puppy a “leave it” command, which will be very useful while they are teething.utah dog trainer

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

  • We will use a pack of balanced dogs to help your puppy develop proper social skills.

  • We will take your puppy as many places as we can to socialize them around people.

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

  • We will teach you 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 teach your new puppy how to walk by your side with a loose leash.

  • We will teach them sit, down, and stay.

  • We will teach you many different ways to correct your puppy properly, when needed.

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

  • We will master their crate training.

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.
