Dog Training Camp

A weekend of learning and fun with your dog!

Three days of training that will improve the relationship you have with your dog and allow you to have way more fun together!

Off leash reliability = a happier dog and way more fun!

While attending camp you will be introduced to safe, humane and effective e-collar use. The training will give you confidence that you can have off leash control of your dog.

You’ll participate in trick training, movement exercises and fun games to play with your pup. This grows confidence in shy dogs and builds coordination in the young ones!

You will discover simple, easy to implement health and nutrition tips that will result in a healthier lifestyle for your dog.

At dog training camp you will improve your dog’s behavior, but you’ll also learn why your dog does what he does.

Your dog will thank you for coming to camp!

  • Body language basics: Understanding what your dog is communicating to you, other people and other dogs.

This is an active, hands on workshop. Attendees should be in good physical shape, weather tolerant and able to walk on slightly uneven terrain.

If you do not have a remote collar for your dog, that is okay. Select the Dog/Handler plus E-collar option when registering and we will provide a new remote training collar appropriate for your dog.

Dog camp is an e-collar based training curriculum, with an emphasis on the whole dog. You won’t leave dependent on the tool, but you will hone your  training skills so you can operate more effectively in real world settings. If you’re ready to have fun and build a better bond with your dog this is the perfect weekend for you. If you have been interested in getting your dog started on e-collar training and want to work with Robin to learn the best techniques, this is a great opportunity.

With emphasis on the whole dog, not only will you learn how to incorporate the e-collar into your training in a way that improves control and obedience, you will learn how to do it in a way that is also fun and engaging for your dog! Robin will help develop your leadership skills so you can communicate better with Fido whether you have the collar on or not. You’ll participate in a wide variety of activities and exercises that will help the shy dogs come out of their shell and help the more assertive dogs to have better impulse control.

Dog camp is specifically created for pet owners who want a fuller life with their dog. If you want an obedient dog who can travel with you and gracefully behave in public settings, this weekend is for you. If you want a dog who is more motivated to listen to you and one you can learn to trust off leash, this weekend is for you. If you want to understand your dog better and learn a few new tricks, this weekend is for you!

Bryon, MN November 18th – 20th.
