Training Programs

Our Board & Train programs are focused on improving the bond between a dog and its human family through an entire lifestyle training program where we welcome your dog into our home environment to live with our experienced trainers and caretakers.

Programs vary and can teach general dog manners and also address specific issues that you may be having with your furry family member. Your dog will receive hours of one-on-one training every single day and will also benefit from socializing with other dogs, humans, and children.
We send you daily pictures and videos of your dog and each course also includes 2 hours of private one-on-one coaching with you. During the coaching session(s), the trainer will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to continue your dog's training and tips on how to troubleshoot any challenges that may arise in the future.


Our goal is to build the foundation for your relationship with your dog that is based on love, trust and respect by building a positive line of communication with each dog. No matter what type of training, care and support your dog needs, rest assured that Camp4Paws will engage your canine in a fun, engaging way!   

 

When you come to Camp4Paws, you become part of our family!
