Returning clients by invitation only
Available for Tail-Wagger's-Club-trained dogs who are at least a year old, independent, and fully trained. A dog who would be a good fit for Camp must know how to come when called, knows all basic commands with distractions present, is completely house broken and crate trained, is friendly with dogs and humans on and off of their leash, is not destructive in any way (chewing, digging, scratching doors), does not resource guard, does not mark in the house, and does not nuisance bark or whine. They are content to hang out, wander the yard, play fetch, chew yummy stuffed kongs, and are easily managed with little behavioral intervention.
Approval needed to be eligible.
Days at Camp are filled with running, playing the sprinkler, and naps in front of the cozy fireplace. Dogs spend time in the yard, chewing bones, playing fetch, and maintaining the good habits they came with. No new behaviors are taught or addressed during camp. For training along with Camp, please refer to the Doggy Boarding School page of our website. If your dog comes for Camp and subsequently displays any ineligible behaviors as listed in the questionnaire below, your dog will be switched to a Boarding School stay and you will be billed accordingly.
