Training

Dog Training

Kamp K-9 offers various programs through Canine Rainbow (with Livia DiGiovanni and Dusan Jovanovic) and Sean Kent. Training helps your dog stay balanced by having lots of exercise and fun while, at the same time, challenging their minds to figure out what is being asked of them. They love that. We keep training fun - instead of only using commands and discipline. That way they want to remember what’s being asked of them.

Training programs offered by Canine Rainbow include:

  • Puppy Socialization (8 weeks to a year – with all shots up-to-date prior to class)
  • Beginner Classes (to learn the “basics”)
  • Intermediate (to learn more than the “basics”)
  • Advanced (the harder to learn commands)
  • Reliable Recall
  • Introduction to Agility
  • Loose-Leash Walking

Sports and other programs are scheduled based on interest and include:

  • Advanced Training for the family pet
  • Agility (small dog and large dog) with tunnels, hoops, jumps, climb-ons, etc.   (We recommend that you ask your vet prior to this class if your dog is in the best shape to attend this class as it is a little more physically intense and bones and joints are fragile).
  • Nosework
  • Preparation course for Therapeutic Paws test
  • Preparation for Canine Good Neighbour test
  • Rally-Obedience – Fun obedience training through a walking course which asks the dog to perform commands in a timed precision event (but still fun)
  • Shaping behaviour for fun
  • Tricks – Teaching your dog how to do cool stuff to show your friends and family when they visit and keeping your dogs mind and body active.
  • Treibball – Herding with a twist.  Newly invented.  A 10 minute timed event to see who can drive eight large fitness balls from a starting position on one side of the room into a soccer-sized goal (or corral) on the other side of the room (with guidance from the handler, of course).  Dogs use their noses to push the balls.  Handler can use verbal, whistle or clicker commands to achieve the final outcome (oh, what fun).  This activity is both physically and mentally stimulating (for both the dog and owner).  There is no jumping involved so it is great for young dogs or dogs with arthritis or seniors that need less impact on their joints but still want to be challenged.
