Doggie Bootcamps - Tecla's K-9 Academy

2 Week Leash Manners and 3 Week Off-Leash Doggie Bootcamps  

Tecla’s K-9 Academy Doggie Bootcamp provides a unique in-kennel training experience for you and your dog. From the very beginning, our goal is to meet the needs of each individual dog and its family. We tailor a program specifically designed for you and your dog. We work 1-on-1 with you to determine the skills you would like your dog to learn and the challenges you have with your dog. From this, we develop a training plan specifically for you and your dog. At this point your dog comes to stay at Tecla’s K-9 Academy and receives training throughout the day. Our trainers will work closely with your dog teaching house manners and obedience in high distraction situations. Tecla’s K-9 Academy Doggie Bootcamp program is a great option for those with hectic schedules or those who travel often. Our program provides a way for owners to provide their dog the training it needs while still keeping pace with their own fast-paced schedules and obligations. Once we have completed your dog’s training, you will receive private instruction that will enable you to maintain the new obedience and behaviors your dog has learned. The outcome: a happy, obedient dog that brings joy to its family!

Tecla’s K-9 Academy Specialty Potty Training and Behavioral Bootcamps

Tecla’s K-9 Academy has developed a Potty Training Bootcamp to help house train puppies. This program is a 4 week program that builds clean crate habits, clean house habits, and a potty on leash command. Tecla’s K-9 Academy offers Behavioral Bootcamps specifically for extreme reactivity and aggression concerns. Our Behavioral Bootcamp program is designed to get to the core problems of each individual dog and address each problem systematically. Unlike many programs that simply suppress a dog’s unwanted behavior Tecla chooses to help bring adrenaline levels down so the dog can think and then teach the dog to make better choices. After evaluation, Tecla will write a plan for your dog which will include follow up classes and lessons.

“A little over a year ago, my wife and I decided to get a Belgian Malinois puppy. After doing some extensive research about the breed, we thought he would be a great fit for us. However, what we did not do is read the fine print. Over the course of the first 9-10 months of having him we faced an uphill battle. We tried numerous trainers, classes, and techniques, all of which were not addressing his underlying behavioral problems. We reached a breaking point and decided to do one more comprehensive search to find a trainer who knew this breed specifically. This is when we found Tecla and her K-9 Academy. Looking back now we wish we had found her from the first day we got our puppy. We went through our initial consultation and private lessons with her and then decided it was best to do a 6-week bootcamp to try and correct the behavioral issues. Throughout this whole process we found out that Tecla is all about the health of the dog and she would do whatever it takes to get him better. One example, was her staying hanging at our apartment for 3 hours on a Sunday night, when she probably had better things to do to close out a weekend. We are now about 2 months post bootcamp and are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We are very fortunate we found Tecla when we did and our only regret is that we did not find her sooner. Her entire staff is terrific and they all have the same passion for dogs. We cannot thank them enough for their help and are confident that we will now have a great dog for many years to come!"
