Doggy boot camp is an obedience course, which is sometimes combined with fitness regimes for dogs and owners. Many doggy boot camps incorporate lessons for a dog owner on how to show authority or become a pack leader in the eyes of his dog.
Doggy boot camps also help owners encourage positive behaviors and eliminate negative ones through conditioning and positive reinforcement. Dogs are trained to stop leash-pulling and jumping. Dogs can also be potty-trained successfully and taught to obey commands such as sit and stay. Doggy boot camps are not all equal, and some charge over $2,000 for a complete course.
