Our Services

Board & Train

This is our most effective and intense option for obedience training and behavior modification.  This option is especially practical for the owner that doesn't have time to train their dog, that is planning to go on vacation or that has a dog with behavior modification issues. 

With this service your dog stays with us at our private home location in Plano, Hudson's Camp Canine.  We will make an initial assessment of what is needed at a complimentary in-home evaluation.   We will then develop a tailored training program for your dog.  

In Board & Train we cover everything from basic obedience, home manners, housebreaking, crate training and off-leash reliability to behavior problems such as jumping, leash aggression, confidence building, possessive aggression, dog to dog aggression, dog to people aggression, fear aggression and separation anxiety.
