Dog Boot Camp NY

services2-picAll breed professional boot camp training!

Our Boot Camp Programs combine obedience training, confidence building exercises, physical conditioning, behavior modification and off-site training to properly train and condition your canine companion. We offer four Dog Boot Camp style programs at Empire K-9 and can customize any program to meet your specific needs.

During Boot Camp we will take the same approach to train your dog as is used to train Service Dogs, Seeing Eye Dogs and Police/ Military Working Dogs.  We fully train your dog then transfer your fully trained dog back to you.  Our training is conducted in a manner that will allow you, the owner, to effortlessly reinforce the training while at the same time maintaining a leadership status and keeping your dog mentally and physical balanced. This is the key to not only ensuring the training will last the life of your dog but also keep your canine companion happy and healthy. Our training courses are unique in that they not only give you the control needed to navigate various aspects of the human environment with your canine companion but also the communication needed to successfully integrate you canine into your home and establish rules, boundaries and expectations.

Consider our Boot Camp for Dogs/ Boarding with Training if you are going on an extended trip. Instead of boarding your dog at a kennel, let him/her stay with our expert trainer. While you are away, your dog will enjoy obedience training, strength training, confidence building, and a variety of field trips. You will come home to an obedient, happy and balanced canine companion.

Bootcamp_020913 s Enrollment

Our boot-camp runs from month to month.

We only take in a limited number of dogs for training each month so class is small.  We keep owners updated on training with weekly progress reports that include either pictures or short video.

At the completion of training we will do a hands on session so you can see your pup perform all the commands then you’ll go hands on and have your pup perform all commands for you. We’ll then conduct more scenario based application of the commands to ensure you never have to train your dog again.

All dogs attending training must be up-to-date on vaccinations. These vaccinations include the distemper combination, rabies, and bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines. In addition to the vaccines, all dogs must have a current fecal test (within 30 days). The fecal test must be negative for parasites and giardia before attending. This can be done by taking a fresh sample into your vet office and asking them to do a fecal test for parasites and giardia. All dogs attending training must be on flea/ tick preventative (at-least a week prior to attending) with heart-worm preventative recommended for warm weather months.

A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to reserve a training spot with the remaining balance due upon completion of training. Space is limited and filled on a first come first served basis. Cash, check and credit cards are accepted.

Once the deposit has been placed and your spot reserved, you will be sent a behavioral questionnaire and additional paperwork needed to complete the enrollment process.
