Do you use the vibrate or tone on the ecollar?

We only use the ‘momentary’ and ‘constant’ stimulation buttons on the e-Collar.  There are many great uses for the ‘tone’ and the ‘vibrate’ modes, but these go beyond the degree of training our programs are designed to offer. If a dog is trained with only the ‘vibrate’ mode the untrained owner will have no other options if the […]

What makes your training more special or different than other trainers?

We are committed to helping each pet owner achieve the best possible relationship with his or her dog.   We have over 30 year’s experience working with all types of dogs and their owners.  Most people seek the assistance of a trainer when they realize their current approach is not working, and they do not know how to achieve the desired behavior from […]

Can I visit my dog during his training?

While we would never absolutely forbid a visit while your dog is undergoing training, it is in the dog’s best interest if you can refrain.  It is important for the dog to temporarily bond with us and look to us to meet his or her needs during the stay with us. If you come and go, the […]

Your programs are board and train, so how do the owners learn?

We love this question because, as much as we adore working with dogs, we value working with their owners even more. This is where the magic truly happens! Each program offers varying levels of owner involvement, but every program includes daily interactions from us in the form of picture and video texts. These updates help […]

Do you offer multiple pet discounts for your programs?

We absolutely love working with multiple dog households and often do so. We advise bringing all the dogs together for training, as it allows us to work towards our goal of training the dogs alongside each other. However, we acknowledge that multiple dog households can present challenges, as dogs are pack animals and influence each […]

Which program is best for my dog?

Determining the perfect program for your dog can be a challenging decision, as our programs are not solely focused on training your dog. At K9 Kamp, we prioritize your ongoing success with your dog, and each program offers different options to provide more time and attention to coaching your family. While every dog can thrive […]

Do you use any other training tools?

While we primarily use the e-Collar, there are a variety of other tools available when necessary, such as buckle collars, martingales, prong collars, and others. We also use food, toys and clickers for motivation and reward. Dog training, like most things, requires balance, and we reward dogs for good behaviors along with correcting unhealthy habits.

Do You use shock collars?

The primary tool that we use is the e-Collar, as, in our experience, has proven to deliver the best results. The e-Collar, by avoiding any delay between the offense and the correction, prevents confusion and uncertainty in dogs about what is expected from them. It also avoids the emotional stress to persons or pets that […]
