Do you have a puppy or dog that could use some manners? Send him to Boot Camp! This is our original and most popular dog training program, where your pup will learn:

  • Basic obedience
  • Fundamental commands including:
    • Sit
    • Stay
    • Come
    • Down
    • Heel

Boot Camp also addresses the most common negative canine behaviors, including:

  • Excessive/unwanted barking
  • Chewing/destroying items in the home
  • Aggression
  • Soiling the home
  • Biting/nipping
  • Digging

The Program


Boot Camp is a two-to-four week stay at our Southern California facility. Dogs undergo daily training sessions and work with multiple trainers, which ensures that your pup actually learns to respond to proper commands and doesn’t get attached to one particular person. Dogs also benefit from socialization with other canines, and we always use positive reinforcement and mild correction in our training.

Before your dog graduates from Boot Camp, you will get to observe a demonstration of the commands and behaviors learned in training.

Follow-up Training

Within a week of graduating, one of our trainers will schedule an in-home appointment to continue the learning in the dog’s own environment. The home lesson includes manners such as:

  • Stopping at doors and gates
  • Stopping at curbs
  • Coming inside on command
  • Laying down in “place” (bed, blanket, rug, etc.)

The Boot Camp program includes one in-home follow-up lesson and on-site follow-up lessons for one year. Additional in-home lessons can be arranged.

Board & Brush Up

Included in the price of the program is our Board & Brush Up service, which is offered exclusively to Boot Camp participants. This is our boarding service that includes “brush up” training to reinforce what your pup learned in Boot Camp.

Board & Brush Up is available for the life of your dog following participation in the Boot Camp program.
