Dog Training FAQs
Camp Bow Wow® is proud to make flexible, fun, and effective training
a reality. We offer reward-based training programs that will satisfy all
your pup’s needs! We realize you may have many questions regarding
our dog training services, which is why we have provided answers to our
most frequently asked questions for your convenience.
What type of training methods do you use?
Camp Bow Wow Certified Trainers only use reward-based training methods.
We believe dogs deserve to be rewarded when they do well rather than making
them work to avoid negative outcomes. To us, rewards can mean praise,
food, treats, or even a toy your dog loves. Our team uses clicker training
in obedience classes to inform our four-legged students when they’re
doing a behavior correctly. Clicker training allows dogs to learn quickly,
and when they do, we slowly remove the clicker and treats. This is a fun,
rewarding, and effective training method for both our dogs and their humans.
How much do your dog training services cost?
The cost of dog training varies depending on whether you are interested
in in-Camp, private, or group training. Get in touch with your local Camp
for more information about our training costs.
How do I know what type of training my dog needs?
We recommend you consult with one of our Camp Bow Wow Certified Trainers
to determine the type of training your dog needs. Once we understand your
goals, we can help you choose the right training service that will help
you achieve them.
Where does training take place?
Most training sessions take place at Camp. Our programs offer both private
training and in-Camp training during your pup’s stay. The location
will depend on the type of training you choose. Some of our Camps offer
off-site training. One of your local Certified Trainers can inform you
about where your trainings can or will take place.
How do Play & Trains work?
This is a great way for us to train your dog while they are staying at
Camp with us. Whether they are here for the day or staying all night,
you can request to have one of our Certified Trainers spend one-on-one
time going over specific behaviors with your pet. Our trainer will take
the time to go over your dog’s progress with you when you come to
pick them up. We can also give you instructions as to how to help them
maintain the progress they have made.
How do I find a schedule for your obedience classes?
Get in touch with your local Camp Bow Wow to learn more about the dates
and times of obedience classes.
What are the requirements to attend training?
Dogs must be up-to-date on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella. Other vaccinations
may be required based on the Camp location. If your pup is participating
in training during their day care or boarding stay, they must have passed
the Camper Interview.
