Are there vaccination requirements for dog training?
Puppies attending classes require at least their first round of vaccines and all age-appropriate boosters. Obedience classes for older dogs require rabies, distemper and Bordetella vaccinations (Bordetella every 6 months) especially if the class is being held at the Camp location. Please confirm all vaccination questions with the trainer as it may vary slightly by class and location.
What do I need to bring to class?
Each class varies, so please check with the trainer. Some items needed for various classes are treat bags, a 6-foot leash, treats that can be broken into small, bite sized pieces, a towel, bed or mat, etc.
How long will it take for my dog to behave the way I want him or her to behave?
This depends on the dog’s individual personality, what issues we are working with and how much practice and consistency the pet parent is willing to devote to training.
What if my dog resorts back to the unwanted behavior after Behavior Buddies training is complete?
The Behavior Buddies trainer selects the training methods that work best with your canine’s personality, drive and temperament. However, there might be times that the behavior alters and you should contact the Behavior Buddies trainer for follow-up and possibly a refresher training session.
Where does the training take place?
Behavior Buddies trainers offer group and private training classes. Training classes are held at Camp Bow Wows, parks and at client’s homes.
What do I need to do as the dog’s owner during the training sessions?
Depending on the assessment by the Behavior Buddies trainer, the trainer will discuss the training plan with you and your level of involvement needed to modify behavior within the timeframe scoped out in game plan.
