Off Leash Heel

 

The behaviors included are:

Allowing examination of feet, face and ears while holding a standing position

 

How this helps you:

  • Your dog will be learning to remain by your side, even if you drop the leash.
  • You will be able to enjoy your dog more because you’ve learned how to communicate more effectively and they’ve learned how to understand what you want from them.
  • You will be able to prevent your dog from rushing out an open door, keeping him/her safe and your sanity in place.
  • You will have better control when distractions arise.
  • Your dog is learning that the leash doesn’t have control, you do.

  • Increase your confidence in the reliability of your dog in any situation
  • Your dogs ability to focus on you increases despite high level distraction

 

How this helps your dog:

  • What you really get is a snowball effect of changes in behavior; your dog will receive the benefit of more exercise and walks because he is no longer difficult to walk, this will help him release excess energy and in turn be an overall calmer and less anxious dog.
  • He will get more opportunities to spend time with his pack and will be happier and less likely to act out due to boredom or frustration.
  • He will gain confidence in having a knowledgeable leader and understanding what is expected of him.
  • Your dog will learn self-control and will be less reactive to previous distractions; other dogs, people, traffic, etc.
  • His energy and excitement levels will diminish and you will have a much better behaved companion.
  • His reliability levels will increase as he learns to respect you with or without a leash

The Benefits of Bootcamp

Proper Socialization and Environmental Proofing - As Professional Trainers we know dog body language and stress signals. This helps us to guide your dog or puppy in an appropriate way to enjoying the busy and sometimes unpredictable environments they may face. We take your dogs on multiple training outings to practice their skills and build their confidence. We take them to places like local Parks, Dog Friendly stores such as Lowes or Orschelns and busy or unique environments like pet stores, livestock barns and parking lots. These properly supervised trips help your dog learn what is expected and how they should respond.

Household Etiquette - During your dogs stay in our Bootcamp Program, we will teach them basic household manners such as Not Begging at the Table, Not Over-reacting to the Door and properly greeting guests! Dogs learn to accept and enjoy using a crate, so if it's ever needed, they will easily enter and remain in it, without destroying it and without all the complaining!

Owner Training Sessions - As Pet Parents we often in-advertently create or reinforce the very behaviors we would like to stop. During your Owner sessions, our trainers will help you to recognize and correct any misunderstandings that appear. We provide multiple opportunities for you and your dog to grow and learn together in order to help create that loving and lasting relationship we all want when we add a dog to our lives.

Working with Distractions - In our Bootcamp programs, we work with a ton of distractions. We practice with your dog to ensure that they will be able to focus and follow directions, regardless of what's going on around them. They will Stay when told, even with toys being thrown, children running around or other people talking to them. They will be able to walk past other dogs, favorite toys and even food left in their path. You can take them anywhere and know that you have the training and skills in place to get your dog to listen to you no matter what.
