Puppy K and Socialization (Limited to 6 teams) 

Did you know that there is a very limited, critical period for socialization and exposure for young puppies? Studies show that the window for socialization closes at approximately 16 weeks. That means that if you acquire your puppy between the age of 8 and 10 weeks, you have precious little time to properly expose them to novel things. One of the most important things your puppy should experience, is exposure to other friendly dogs and puppies. Dogs also learn very quickly when they are young! Be proactive and enroll your puppy today!

Handler Assisted Class

*Expert Handler Assisted Guidance Option*

We are pleased to be the first to offer assisted handling, during our classes.

If you would like to enroll your dog in our classes but have reservation or limitations which might prevent you from personally handling your dog, we have the solution!

Perhaps you have a large, rambunctious dog, who makes handling difficult or maybe you simply want your dog to attend class and you would prefer to observe rather than handle your dog.

One of our professionals will provide exclusive and personal handling of your dog for each class in the series or just one or two. It’s up to you!
(Please note that you must be in attendance for the classes)

Phone Consultations


Like many dog owners, you may be experiencing just one or two behavioral issues which might easily be addressed with a simple phone consultation. We take a brief history of the problem and will offer expert explanations, suggestions and solutions during your consultation.

Consultations will be scheduled at your convenience. (Please be advised that not all behavior problems can be properly addressed during your phone consultation. Issues with reactivity or aggression require more in-depth intake and in-person consultations).

Cost:
     • $30.00 for 30 minutes
     • $50.00 for one hour


Please complete the brief questionnaire to determine eligibility.

Preparation and Testing

Obtaining your Canine Good Citizen title is often the first official title you can earn with your dog. It is a 10-step assessment developed by the AKC to demonstrate your dog’s exceptional manners and often landlords and insurance companies will accept this as proof of your well- mannered, low risk dog!

We can help you prepare for testing and are approved AKC CGC evaluators.

Not every dog is suitable for the class environment. Often behavioral complaints involve problems which occur in the home.

We are pleased to offer in-home private sessions for behavioral complaints.
Sessions are scheduled at the convenience of you and your family.

Our certified dog behavior consultant will conduct a brief phone inquiry to establish your major complaints and then take an in-depth history, prior to your session.

Cost:
$85.00/hr. within a 50-mile radius of Long Pond, PA 18334.
Clients outside this area may be subject to a gas surcharge.


Daycare & Socialization

There is really no better way to provide your dog a safe and fun outlet, than having them attend daycare!

At Camp KCS, your dog can spend her day romping in the fully-enclosed, secure play yard, under the constant supervision of skilled, vigilant professionals.

Play groups are hand selected to match play styles and preferences. Never are there more than 4 or 5 dogs grouped together for play sessions and sessions are closely monitored for appropriate and reciprocal play.

Scheduling play dates with other dogs is the very best way for your dog to learn and hone his communication skills with other dogs.

You will also be delighted to have access to a dedicated Facebook page, filled with pictures and videos of your dog at day care!

LEARNING THEORY WORKSHOP

“THE ART & SCIENCE OF ANIMAL BEHAVIOR”

In this workshop, we will discuss the "whys" of behavior - what stimulates it, what drives it, how to get it, how to change it, and much more. Building on the information you have learned in our FREE Body Language Workshop, you'll learn to determine what functions and reinforcers are always at play and develop skills to modify unwanted behavior.


Want to know how to speed up learning? We've got the answer!
Want to know what your dog is really trying to accomplish by pulling you down the street? The answer may not be what you think!
Want to be able to tell if your dog is really calm or might it be something different? The answer to this is fascinating!
Want to know how to “stop bad behavior”?
We can help!

The goal of this workshop is to equip you with the fundamental skills necessary to train your dog, using non-aversive techniques based on the most current science. As always, we stress the importance of building a relationship with your dog based on trust!
