Our Behavior Buddies trainer offers private training, as well. There are various types of private training you can choose to meet the needs of you and your pup:

-            
Board and Train – While your dog is boarding at Camp Bow Wow® our Certified Behavior Buddies trainer will spend time privately addressing any training issues with your dog that you want fixed. When you return home, your trainer will give you a personal session to go over the behaviors that they worked on with your dog so you can continue the work they started.

Play and Train – While your dog is enjoying Day Camp, the trainer will take your dog aside for a session of training on leash walking, jumping, or anything else you want them to help your dog learn.
