Training


 

improving RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR CANINE COMPANION, 

THROUGH knowledge, understanding and Experience!

 ​Boulder Ridge Kennels

30 Day Boot Camp

​Drop your dog off for 30 days of intense training or behavior modification. The average dog will learn all basic commands (sit, down, stay, heel, and proper greetings) and will be tested for Canine Good Citizen Certification at the end of the month. For dogs needing, specific behaviors modified, the goals will be somewhat different depending on their needs. 
The success of this program really depends on how consistent you are when the dog goes home. It is imperative that you follow my recommendations and continue the training. After your dog goes home, included in the package is 4 days of group classes or 2 private sessions which you will attend with the dog to learn how to handle the dog and all the commands. 

Cost:
-$700/month for breeders who want a CGC or Rally title on their dog, or for any dog purchased from Boulder Ridge. (Rally titles may take longer than 1 month depending on what the dog knows before coming. All entry fee's will be paid by owner and any costs associated with getting to the show will be split amongst the dogs going)
-$1000/month for most dogs 
-$1300/month for dogs with human aggression issues who need behavior modification

**if you are wanting reliable recalls when dog is off leash and around distractions, an electronic collar is the only way for me to achieve that in a 30-60 day time period. We use and recommend Dogtra brand E-collars, if you don't already have one then this is an additional $200.

1/2 of Payment is due at drop off with remaining due upon pick up.

Things to bring: A copy of Dog's vaccine records, food, bedding (if applicable), medications or supplements and completed contract.

*Vaccines required are Parvo/Distemper and Rabies

*Dog must be current on flea/tick treatments and worming

I only allow 2-3 dogs at a time for this program so book early to ensure that I have a spot for you.


*This type of program is best achieved if dog stays for the full 30 days but if owner is only wanting a few specific things addressed we will break it into 2 week blocks.


​Private Training

If unsure of which class is appropriate for your dog, please email or call me to help place you in the correct class. 

GROUP CLASSES

Owning a dog is a big responsibility and all dogs require socializing, physical & mental stimulation, and training. That's why I offer a variety of options to fit you and your dog's needs. From group classes, private lessons, behavior modification or 30 day boot camp.
​Remember training is a lifelong endeavor and as the saying goes

"If you don't use it, You'll loose it!"
