Camps

A training consultation is required prior to booking any Day Camp.

Quick training results while you work! With three intensive training sessions during your work week, your pet will start to transform into the well-behaved pet of your dreams. Field trips to pet-friendly locations (stores, restaurant patios, parks, and more!) will ensure that your pet's training can hold up around a variety of distractions. Video recaps and training handouts will coach you through continuing your pet's training between sessions and hands on follow-up sessions ensure you and your pet are able to continue everything you've learned once your Day Camp is complete.

Day Camp packages are ideal for working pet owners that are too busy to make progress quickly through Private Sessions; however, dedication to regular training practice with your pet is still a must!

Each Day Camp session takes place between 10am and 4pm each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Session lengths and start times will be variable so that each at home session and field trip can be tailored to the exact needs of your pet. Camp Follow Up sessions can be scheduled on Fridays ONLY.

There are a variety of Day Camp packages available to meet the needs of you and your pet!
