Boot Camp is for those dogs that require a more intensive residential programme, away from their home environment, in order to learn how to be a dog again and become balanced.
Dogs exhibiting dog aggression issues really benefit from this programme as they are integrated with a pack of balanced sociable dogs.
Dogs exhibiting the following behaviour will be considered for Boot Camp:
Aggressive towards dogs
Aggressive towards humans
Out of control on a walk
Not responding to commands
Destructive in the home
Prior to being accepted into Boot Camp, a 1:1 dog behaviour consultation with Jo Cottrell is required to ascertain the dogs behaviour and discuss the length of time required in Boot Camp.
At the end of the stay Jo Cottrell will work with owners to re-introduce their dog back into their home, showing owners the basic structure and techniques that will enable them to maintain balance between them and their dog.
Daily sessions for Boot Camp dogs may include cycling, swimming, agility and breed specific activities.
Clients will be given an approximate length of time that it will take for their dog to be rehabilitated. However, please be advised that this is solely dependent on the dog themselves, it may be shorter or longer than anticipated but clients will be notified of this if applicable.
