Boot Camps

What is Doggie Boot Camp?

Tecla’s K-9 Academy’s Doggie Boot Camp provides unique in-kennel dog training experience. While at Doggie Boot Camp, emphasis is placed on teaching dogs through operant conditioning and on generalizing each behavior they learn so that they can perform as well at the veterinarian’s office as they do in their own home.

Who Benefits From Doggie Boot Camp?

Dogs who don’t receive the training their owners desire. Whether due to your hectic schedule, traveling, Tecla’s K-9 Academyʼs Doggie Boot Camp provides dog owners the opportunity to give their dog the training it needs while still keeping pace with their own busy schedules and obligations.

How does Doggie Boot Camp Work?

The objective of Doggie Boot Camp is to meet the needs of each individual dog and its family. We tailor a custom program designed to suit you and your dog by working one-on-one with you to determine the skills you would like your dog to learn and the challenges you have with your dog. From this we develop a training plan specifically for you and your dog. At this point your dog comes to stay with Tecla’s K-9 Academy and receives training throughout the day in real-life situations. Our trainers work closely with your dog teaching house manners and obedience in high distraction situations. A few examples of what we teach are:

  • Extinguishing Jumping
  • Housebreaking
  • Loose Leash Walking
  • Sit and Down Stay
  • Come Called

Once your dog’s training at our facility is completed, you will receive private instruction that will enable you to maintain the new obedience and behaviors your dog has learned. The outcome: a happy, obedient dog that brings joy to your family!

Tecla’s K-9 Academy knows how important it is to you to maintain your dog’s training success; therefore we provide these follow-up offerings:

  1. We invite you to one of our group classes as a way to “freshen-up” skills.
  2. We guarantee our training as long as you follow the directions we give you and will work with you one-on-one if you are having any trouble with skills taught in Doggie Boot Camp.
  3. Provide for touch-up in-kennel training should you go on vacation.
