Some great news from our Chantilly location yet again! We are super excited to be offering some new and exciting training options in addition to group classes.
Want a dog that compliments your life and doesn’t disrupt it? Board and Train Bootcamp at Pender Pet Retreat may be for you (and your dog of course!). Our Board and Train Bootcamp programs are intensive and comprehensive programs designed specifically for your dog’s needs. We offer two options for our Bootcamp program, a 2-week and 4-week option. The 2-week Bootcamp is suitable for puppies and adult dogs requiring only basic obedience training, ie. come, sit, stay, down, heel. Our 4-week option is more suitable for dogs who require behavior modification beyond the basics, such as fear, socialization, anxiety, etc.
Each option includes our award-winning all-inclusive boarding care for 14 or 28 days, respectively. As with all of our boarders, in addition to their training, your pup will spend time outside three times a day with a potty break in the morning and evening, as well as an activity (nature hike or off-leash play school) midday. Each option also includes an initial consultation between trainer, owner, and trainee to review any previous training experience, your pup’s general history and environment, what can be expected from the training process, and a brief behavior evaluation for our trainer to assess how you interact with your dog and how your dog responds to your commands. At the completion of the training bootcamp, our trainer will personally review all of the progress that has been made and teach you how to continue your dog’s training at home, as consistency in commands and rewards is pertinent to training success. Our 2-week bootcamp will also include a follow-up private session at 2-weeks following bootcamp, while our 4-week program includes a follow-up session at 2- and 4-weeks following bootcamp.
2-week Bootcamp = $2,200
4-week Bootcamp = $4,000
For those whose pups (or parents!) are not ready for sleep-away camp just yet, a less intensive program is available for training. Our Day School program is offered in 2-week sessions and includes daycare Monday through Friday for two weeks with daily training sessions. As with our Bootcamp options, our Day School includes an initial consultation between trainer, owner, and trainee to determine the goals of and set expectations for the training. Each day, the pet parents will be provided with a training update and assigned homework for continued training at home. At the completion of the two week training program, our trainer will personally review all of the progress that has been made and teach you how to continue your dog’s training at home.
2-week Day School Training = $945
To express interest in any of our training programs, we ask all pet parents to complete our easy online form. Once we receive your online application, we will reach out to you to schedule your initial consultation.
As always, if you would like to check out our pawesome new play areas and speak with some of our team members in person, please feel free to drop by during our business hours, no appointment is necessary. We look forward to serving your furry family member(s) and you!
