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.

Group Classes

 

This is a really fun option as the pet owners get to socialize with each other and the trainer. Group classes are also a budget conscious choice.  Classes last 6 weeks and cover all of Standard Obedience and Advanced Obedience.  Classes will meet at different times of the year usually spring and fall.  Highly reactive or aggressive dogs will not be allowed to remain in group class.  Trainer will make that assessment by the 2nd class and will be given the option to roll the remaining pro-rated cost of the class into private lessons or board & train. 

Polishing Day Training

 

This option is perfect for current clients that work during the day. Just schedule with us, drop off in the morning and pick up after work. These sessions can be used as needed to polish commands or behaviors.
