Does this sound such as you?

  • You realize you wish help training your dog and don’t know where to start
  • You’ve tried training yourself or have worked with one other trainer with limited results
  • You wish your dog to have stellar obedience so which you could take them with you to your favorite places
  • You wish to construct a greater relationship together with your dog
  • You enjoy outdoor activities, but doing them together with your dog is a challenge
  • You’re frustrated by off-leash and “friendly” dogs approaching your dog

We’ve been there, too.

Having confident, well-trained dogs who like to be outside as much as we do has enriched our lives beyond our wildest dreams. As longtime owners of reactive dogs, we understand how difficult it might be to benefit from the outdoors with them.

We would like everyone to experience the enjoyment of taking their dogs on adventures, so we created the last word adventure dog training camp! 

We’re so excited to share our knowledge and expertise with open-minded folks in a stunning setting. At Adventure Dog Camp, our hope is to foster a way of community amongst other outdoor-loving dog owners like ourselves.
