TAIL BLAZERS UNIVERSITY -  More than just a daycare...It's an education
Boot Camps

Here at TBU we offer a 5 day Off-Leash Boot Camp, and our 5 day behavior oriented training camp

Our boot camps are unlike any other! Your dog may come to our facility for their training and board here with us during the entire program, or we may customize these advanced programs, including adapting them to in-home training programs or day-school only programs, should that suit you or your dog's needs.

On the final graduation day, you will come in for approximately 2 hours for
your training! And each program includes appropriate follow up sessions and lifetime phone 
consultations - we never leave you alone; we are your good-behavior lifeline!

The Off-Leash Camp

This 5 day program tuition includes all training, as well as daycare and/or boarding for the entire program. Throughout the course, we will work with your dog both off-leash and on-leash. We guarantee a reliable recall and an excellent on leash dog. We will also establish threshold manners; teaching your pup to sit and wait for your release when going through doorways.

Tuition for the 5-day off-leash program is $999 (Suitable for Dogs with Rudimentary Recall & Obedience Skills) and includes a 2-hour handler training session and lifetime phone consultations!

This course is appropriate for dogs over 8 months of age.

(Remote Collar and Training Collar are additional).


Behavioral Modification & Management Training Camp

5-Day Behavioral Modification & Management Training Camp:

This 5-day customized behavior modification & management program employs the gentle softouch K-9 Training™ approach utilized by Canine Behaviorist and Trainer Greg Riley, as well as daycare and/or boarding for the entire five days. Throughout the course, your trainer will work with your dog off-leash and on-leash. We guarantee a reliable recall, an excellent on leash dog, polite threshold behaviors, and the tools requisite to manage your dog’s main behavioral problem.

This high trainer-contact program provides the foundational structure requisite to reliable obedience and is recommended for the control and/or mitigation of minor aggression, stubborn or defiant dogs, and dogs displaying a range of inappropriate and intractable behaviors such as jumping, lunging, digging, counter surfing and a host of behaviors arising from misunderstood hierarchical issues and the like.

Tuition is $1199 and includes one 2-hour handler training/coaching session at the conclusion of the program, and one in-home follow-up coaching session, scheduled as required with the owner and trainer, as well as free lifetime phone consultations! During the coaching sessions, our training staff will provide the owner with the knowledge and skills required to continue the dog’s training. We will not only focus on the technical side of training but also on the leadership and state of mind aspects. We will teach the client how to troubleshoot any challenges that come up in the home and in the future.

We will provide continuous structure, leadership and guidance to your dog for five consecutive days. We will focus on the time-consuming repetitions required in initial foundation work and E-collar conditioning that the average dog owner typically cannot fit into a busy schedule.

In this program, your dog will learn the following skills and commands under light distractions.
  • Walk politely on leash
  • Wait politely at thresholds
  • Moderate distraction recall work
  • Kennel Up!
  • Introduction to and complete understanding of the “language” of the E-collar

This course is appropriate for dogs over 8 months of age.

  • The above Board & Train price does NOT include the cost of an E-collar. If you need to purchase an E-collar, we are happy to provide an E-Collar Technologies E-collar on the first day of the training camp. The E-collar cost runs from $189 to $329, depending on the model your dog needs.

All Board and Train dogs must be picked up & dropped off by the client (owner).

Board & Train Refund Policy
The total Board & Train fee includes a $300 deposit that is 100% refundable up until two (2) weeks prior to scheduled training. The remainder of the Board & Train fee is due at the conclusion of training.
