Key Benefits

of Our Boot Camp


Your dog is housed in the lower level of a home – NOT in a kennel run, pole building, barn, or garage. The room where they sleep has in-floor heat, constant climate controlled fresh air (HRV), a commercial medical-grade air purification system, and a concrete block/brick exterior for additional safety.


Training exercises, real-life scenarios for distraction proofing, physical conditioning, and activites happening everyday; 7 days a week, from the beginning of camp till graduation 7:00 AM till 9:30 PM.

Outdoor Play Areas

The outdoor play area is a 10,000 sq ft. fenced play area, that was professionally designed for dogs. Your dog is safely confined to a fenced and gated play area on campus, surrounded by a forest like setting. This play area is fully irrigated which makes it easy to maintain and sanitize.

Indoor Training

On campus, we have 3,000 square feet of indoor climate controlled training and play space; designed specifically for the comfort and safety of your dog. This indoor training space has been featured in an internationally printed dog training magazine.

Multiple Trainers

We have multiple trainers on staff, both male and female, which helps your dog learn to respond to more than one person.

Boot Camps Exclusively

We believe in offering the best possible boot camp on the planet; therefore we focus exclusively on boot camp for dogs and puppies. We choose NOT to offer classes, doggie day care, protection training, hunting dog training, rally, agility, or other forms of training. This is what has enabled us to master the best possible boot camp for your family/companion dog.

Career Oriented

Trainers at our Academy are full-time, career oriented, professional dog trainers. This is not a part-time job, or side gig. We commit 100% of our time to professional dog training.

Proprietary Training

Our training process is proprietary and unlike anything you will find online, in a book, in a class, or on YouTube. It is something we have developed through years of training dogs, hands-on experience, and coaching dog owners. Our clients frequently comment that the instruction they receive is unique, and unlike anything they have learned previously.

Weekly Updates

We send you weekly email updates and progress reports with high quality digital photographs of your dog or puppy in action. Each week the training drills become more challenging, and we share these experiences with you.


We prove that each and every dog has been trained to our high standard by producing a graduation video which is published to YouTube. We proudly exhibit every single dog that has graduated from our Academy which we invite you to view here:

Our Dog Training

Achieves the highest level of obedience training you will find

The programs we provide are in-board - also known as boarding training or board and train. This means that the dogs stay at the Academy for the duration of the training program or boot camp. This is the best and most efficient form of dog training. We do the work for you - delivering a well behaved canine companion.

Puppy Obedience Training and Puppy Boot Camp

Shiba Inu Dexter
Owner's Name:
Danica Baron / Alameda, CA
Dog's Name:

Josiah and Summer are wonderful, professional, patient and incredibly knowledgeable. They helped my family source a beautiful Shiba Inu dog and then took over the training for a few months while he was still a puppy. Dexter (the Shiba Inu) is easily one of the best dogs (and best trained dog) I have ever encountered.
