“After spending $7,000 with various board and train programs, we were frustrated with our dog’s the lack of progress. Now that Hank is home, he is finally the polite dog we knew he could be!” – Matthew Love
Are you headed out of town and want your dog to upgrade his manners while you’re away? Or perhaps you have limited free time, and you’d like to contract the job out to an expert? Or maybe your dog just needs a training refresher. Pavlov can help with Board and Train Camp!
Why Pavlov? There are a number of special aspects to Pavlov’s Board and Train Camp. First, your dog will be trained in your dog trainer’s home. He’ll receive training walks in a residential neighborhood similar to yours – think pedestrians and neighbors walking their dogs. Keep in mind that most training facilities are located in areas zoned for industry or agriculture…not residential. Consequently, they do not offer the same opportunities for training. It helps to train in an environment that is similar to your own.
Second, your dog’s day will be filled with group walks, structured training sessions, and free time to be a dog. Your dog will benefit from social time with other dogs as well as individual attention. Finally, Pavlov’s training approach is a healthy hybrid of traditional training and positive reinforcement. Consequently, your dog will excel quickly in learning new skills and stopping unwanted behaviors.
Board and Train Camps Include
- Self-Control Lessons – no jumping on people or counter tops, respecting personal space, and no incessant barking.
- Obedience Lessons – skills such as heel, sit, down, wait at doorways, walking politely on a leash
- Field trips to hiking trails and public parks.
- Video updates twice a week, so you can admire your dog’s progress.
- Additionally, you will appreciate twelve months of trainer support and private lessons to help you maintain your dog’s polite behavior.
Available Program Camps
(3 months – 6 months)
We will address a variety of puppy issues such as nipping, destruction, house and crate training, as well as a foundation of obedience.
(6 months & older) We focus on self-control and obedience skills in this program. Dogs with a foundation of obedience will need less time than dogs with no prior training.
III. LEASH DRAMA
This program is designed for dogs that are reactive on leash (vocalizing and lunging). We train foundation skills to start, with an emphasis on self-control. From here on, we will teach your dog to walk with and near other dogs in a mannerly fashion, so you can feel comfortable walking your dog in public.
IV. COME WHEN CALLED
Do you want your dog to come when called at the drop of a hat? In addition to obedience and self control lessons, we add an emphasis on off-leash reliability in this program.
V. CUSTOM Camp
Tell us your training goals, and we will design the camp specifically for your dog.
All Pavlov Board and Train Camps are $1200 / week. A $500 nonrefundable deposit is due at the time of booking. The remainder of the first half is due at drop-off, and the second half is due at pick up.
