Day School Training Camp

What is Day School Training Camp?

Tecla’s K-9 Academy’s Day School Training Camp provides a unique alternative to in-kennel dog training, held every day, Monday through Friday. While at Day School Training 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 Day School Training Camp?

Dogs who don’t receive the training their owners desire. With our busy lives, many of us find that we do not have the time to train our dogs as much as we would like to. Tecla’s K-9 Academyʼs Doggie Bootcamp provides dog owners the opportunity to give their dogs the training they need, while still keeping pace with their own busy schedules and obligations.

How does Day School Training Camp Work?

The objective of Day School Training 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 Tecla’s K-9 Academyʼs training facility every weekday and receives training throughout each day in real-life situations. Our trainers will 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, we will then come to your home every weekday to work with your dog while you are at work or running errands. Once we have generalized your dogʼs obedience to your specific in-home needs, 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 Training Camp.
  3. Provide for touch-up in-kennel training should you go on vacation.
