Beast Boot Camp

Beast Boot Camp is one of the most effective ways to train your dog. Here’s how it works:

  • leave your dog at Wagging Tails Kennel for 3 or more days
  • our trainer will work with your dog 4 times each day.
  • when you pick up your dog, you will get a private session with a trainer to teach you how to continue training the new things your dog has learned.

The most successful customer and dog pairs start with BBC and then enroll in our Group Class.

There is a weekly training fee plus boarding fees. Boarding includes:

  • food
  • beds
  • bowls
  • heated/AC
  • 4 walks daily
  • 24hr On-site Attendant
  • lots of TLC!

Group classes are discounted when you sign up after completing BBC.

Group Class (Basic Obedience)

Basic Obedience taught at your own pace. Group classes are taught on Saturdays with a rotating schedule. Each level is 30-45 minutes and is taught at the same time each week. There are evening classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 6PM.  Each evening offers a different level.  Ask the trainer which evening is appropriate for you and your dog.

There are four levels to complete.  You move to the next level when you and your dog are ready. No rush, no hassle, move at your own pace. Miss a class? No problem. Come the following week and pick up where you left off. We give you 6 months to complete the classes so you aren’t rushed and can be a success.
