Training (big and small)
Camp K9 offers two different training options. We offer 5 or 10 day boarding school programs and accelerated daycare.
In order for training to be successful, it is imperative for owners to work at home to change behaviors as instructed by our trainers. Your willingness to incorporate training and obedience commands into everyday life are crucial for success.
