Canine Training Camp with Catherine Muffat
One of the most effective methods for your dog to become a responsible member of your household is the Catfordogs Board and Train program.
Take a look at the images below or check out our gallery to get an idea of the environment we provide. Our in-home training facility includes an in-ground swimming pool and climate controlled accommodation.
As a certified dog trainer, I employ a balanced training approach. After completing an evaluation, your dog will board in our home for a few weeks of intense, personalized training in basic obedience and home manners. Motivational training methods are used starting with positive reinforcement during the behavior acquisition phase. Skills learned will include sit (stay), down (stay), leave it, waiting at the door, place, loose leash walking, and come (recall).
We practice these skills in the home environment (including the kitchen!) with our personal dogs and cats present to reinforce home manners.
In addition, we'll work in different dog-friendly local businesses to generalize the behaviors they learn in our home.
At the end of the training period, I will give you a one hour "go-home" lesson to teach you the skills you'll need to continuously reinforce the training. Also included are two private follow-up lessons to respond to any questions you might have during the three months following completion of the program.
"Six years old - but still such a puppy!!! Lacy is already such a better listener at home and yet still has her spirited and playful personality. We've now got the tools and techniques to stay on top of her training. Thank you for working with her Catherine!"
"Catherine worked wonder with my two Frenchies, Gus and Olivia. They were stubborn and headstrong, but she lovingly changed them into wonderful pups that I can now take anywhere. I have to add that they are still funny, quirky, and playful, but they listen and obey when I ask them to. This picture is one week after we brought them home. We are at the vets office, which normally is mayhem for everyone and they just ignored the other dogs. The vet and vet techs couldn’t believe it. (They know us well!)"
