Intensive Training Camps

SDT Bootcamp Programs

What is a boot camp? Is a bootcamp right for me and my pet(s)? It is also often referred to as “in-board training”,  “in-kennel”, “dog board and train” and “training camp.”

SDT specializes in creating an unbeatable learning environment in a safe, fun and interactive environment for your 4-legged family member(s). We all lead busy lives and often don’t have the time it takes to get great results. Our team of trainers understands that it isn’t a lack of desire but rather just an issue of not having the time. We take your family member into our loving and structured environment and teach him/her new boundaries and commands and deal with all behavioral issues. SDT also specializes in training therapy and service dogs with our programs. Bootcamp isn’t magic. It is hard work, repetition, consistency, compassion, timing, and a ton of patience. However, having professionals that have been working with dogs for more than 18+ years spend a few weeks with your canine(s) can change your life! We can teach your puppy to obey you and your obedience commands so that you can enjoy your family pet at his/her fullest potential.

Why leave your pup at home when he/she is trained well enough to be out in public enjoying a family function, lunch at an outdoor cafe, or a nice off-leash hike at one of the many beautiful locations in sunny Southern California…or anywhere for that matter? Our boot camps allow us to remove your canine from an environment that he/she isn’t fully succeeding in and create some new positive behaviors that make owning a pet more enjoyable. Take the stress off of yourself and allow our professional trainers to lay a foundation of control that you never thought was possible.
