The Dogs Spot


Training, Boarding and Bootcamp

Bootcamp or in-kennel training

Teaching stay
Coming when called
Distraction Training

What it covers:

The in-kennel program covers all of your basic commands: sit, down, stay, walk on a loose leash, come when called, a go to your place command and an off leash with me command. The commands are taught with a combination of positive and negative reinforcement. This balanced approach to dog training has been shown to produce the most reliable results. In addition to the basic commands any behavioral issues will be addressed.

  The following video shows everything your dog can learn while at Bootcamp !!

How it works:

You decide when you would like to have your dog trained and call to reserve your dogs training slot. Due to limited spaces a non-refundable non transferable deposit of $150 is required at the time of booking. The balance of the training fees are due when you drop your dog off.

Once your in-take lesson has been booked I ask you to sit down with your family and make me a wish list that is a list of all the things that you wish your dog did and all the things that you wish your dog didn’t do.  

When you arrive for your lesson we go over the list together and work out a training strategy and the commands that you would like for me to use. The dog then stays with me for the 3 week period. During which he/she receives training sessions each day and when not training is boarded in a cage free environment which allows for a lot of dog playtime and exercise. The training takes place at The Dogs Spot training center.


Upon completion of the training you will receive at least an hour "transfer" session, during this session we work together to firstly demonstrate what your dog now knows. Then you will receive instruction on how to work with your dog and be sure the dog understands that the rules now apply to you as well. In addition you are given a maintenance training program. This program is designed to keep the commands fresh and to keep your dog as responsive as when he left our facility. The training is guaranteed as long as the maintenance program is followed.
