Board And Train-Bootcamp

Puppy Boot Camp & Behavioral Programs

At Bayk9, we focus on specialty dog training. We are known for various things, but mainly working with complex behavioral challenges that include, but are not limited to:

  • Fear and aggression
  • Reactivity
  • Territorial aggression
  • Resource guarding
  • Dog aggression
  • Separation anxiety

With our tailored canine in board behavioral programs, we can deal with your dog’s challenges, along with the goals that you have with regards to your dog’s training.

Additionally, our specialty dog training offers intensive board and train programs. We focus on puppies aged between 8 weeks and 11 months. For dogs above 12 months, we shift them onto adult dog board and train programs.

Things to note about the program:

  1. Your puppy will stay with us for the duration of the camp.
  2. Your puppy will engage in structured play.
  3. He or she will also engage in socialization.
  4. He or she will also engage in house manners.
  5. Potty training
  6. Obedience training
  7. Working through common puppy behaviors.

Our word of advice: Invest in your dog’s future behavior by laying a strong foundation.

Our Methods and Philosophy

  • When we communicate well and clearly to our dogs, they will naturally respond. Consequently, we will begin to form a mutual understanding.
  • With clear and consistent communication, along with understanding, the different principles of conditioning will begin.
  • We teach pet parents how to use verbal commands, along with neutral corrections to communicate with their dog.
  • A dog that responds to your voice without you having to repeat yourself is a well-trained dog.
  • Once conditioned, through repetition and routine, a dog’s desirable behavior, along with his or her responsiveness, will last a lifetime.
  • There is no such thing as a “smart dog,” but there is a well-trained and a well-conditioned dog.
  • We teach basic handling skills and obedience, using a leash and collar, praise (vocal tone), and effective body language.

Things to note:

  • Throughout the learning phase, particularly for young puppies, we utilize praise, petting, toys, and sometimes food.
  • Adding commands happens in phrases and with the use of effective communication (an example is attaching the command sit, stay, come, or down, with the action followed by praise).
  • We use the dogs’ natural instincts to learn.
  • Repetition and consistency are key, but praise is the essential motivating factor.
  • Once your dog learns any command, the next step is to introduce distraction and correction when necessary.
  • At Stinson Sit Stay, we employ the “as gentle as possible, as firm as necessary” philosophy. This means NO use of pain, nor punishment.
  • We respect our clients’ decision to use the collar that they feel is most comfortable, except for shock and choke chains which we highly discourage.
  • Our job is to teach the owner how to properly fit and use the training equipment of their choice.
